Jimmy McGill locates the skateboarders but in the hands of the crazed Tuco Salamanca, he may not have long to live. Tuco is hellbent on killing the skateboarders, who not only tried to scam his much-loved grandmother, but insulted as well. They are all soon in the desert where Tuco plans to dispose of all three of them but if Jimmy was ever to plead for someone's life, this is his chance to do it. Tuco isn't what you would call a reasonable man but one member of crew, Nacho Varga, sees the value of Jimmy's argument. They compromise - the skateboarders are, to say the least, not too keen on the solution - and Jimmy is set free. The situation doesn't help Jimmy business but Nacho has a suggestion for him.

In the opening teaser, Tuco (Raymond Cruz) is seen cooking dinner. This is a reference to how Tuco cooked burritoes for his uncle Hector Salamanca (Mark Margolis), Walt (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse (Aaron Paul). See more »


(at arouns 32 mins) Jimmy enters his office at the back of the beauty salon. He unlocks the door and has to push a chair out of the way so that he can open the door enough to fit through. This wouldn't be possible unless someone stayed in the office and pushed the chair up against the door after he locked it. See more »

Great episode, better than the pilot
9 February 2015 | by PulpPhictionSee all my reviews

Better Call Saul is going to be an excellent series, and I am really looking forward to the rest of it. This episode is most of the reason why.

I don't know how they pull it off, but Better Call Saul somehow has a Breaking Bad vibe and feel to it, while also feeling like a completely new and fresh show.

Unlike the first act (which was still great), this episode spends less time developing characters, setting the scene and building the story-line, and more time jumping right into the excitement, suspense and intensity.

Overall this episode was definitely better than the first, and I'm definitely looking forward to the rest of the series.
