Jimmy tries to convince his brother that Kim had nothing to do with his slip; he even tries to make a deal, saying he'd quit the law if Kim was left out.

Did You Know?


Tuco (Raymond Cruz) refers to Mike (Jonathan Banks) as "Mr. Magoo", an elderly cartoon character notorious for his nearsightedness. Hank (Dean Norris) calls Walt (Bryan Cranston) the same thing after he deliberately crashes the car in the Breaking Bad (2008) episode Breaking Bad: Crawl Space (2011), in an attempt to keep Hank from the laundromat.

Jimmy enters HHM at night when the janitor is burnishing the floor. The janitor tells Jimmy to be careful as the floor is slippery. This is not true. Burnishing makes floors shiny; however, it does not make floors slippery. People tend to see shiny floors and assume they are slippery when in reality they are not. Floor wax in the United States has been manufactured for decades to not be slippery. See more »

Far from "Face/Off", but this is an amazing installment
8 December 2016 | by 851222See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

"Gloves Off" was by far the best episode in excellent second season of "Better Call Saul". Storytelling shined here at its best with excellent writing, super acting and great directing. The story itself moved a little bit further, but "Better Call Saul" as well as its masterpiece predecessor was always about the moment.

Overall, if you are enjoying second season of the series, "Gloves Off" delivers good and beyond. It was so good to see some "Breaking Bad" characters to reaper again - kinda gave me a nostalgia feeling. Great episode overall.
