Episode 9
Pimento




We got two great stories in this episode. One was of course Jimmy's and the other was Mike's. I was actually leaning toward Mike's as being the "better" of the two. That is until the final 5 minutes where Jimmy confronts Chuck and finally gets the bottom of why Howard Hamlin wants nothing to do with him. For the entire season, we are led to believe that there is a deep animosity between Hamiin and Jimmy and our reaction to it is wanting to know what exactly did Jimmy do to p*ss him off. Well, the big reveal is that we find out that Chuck has been the one behind keeping Jimmy "in his place" the entire time because he doesn't view him as a 'real lawyer'. This is some messed up Cain and Abel betrayal here and I can now see this as being the straw that finally breaks Jimmy's back and sends him on his way to becoming Saul. Another masterful performance by Bob Odenkirk.

As for Mike's story, it had all the hallmark signs of vintage Breaking Bad. Loved the scene between Mike and the 'Guy with too many guns'. It was fantastic to see Steven Ogg in the role and as much as this scene was to build up the Mike character, it was Ogg that steals the scene. For those that aren't familire with Ogg, he plays Trevor (likeness and voice acting) in GTA V. Nice to see that Nacho is back and hopefully they are setting up something big for the Season Finale. Totally got a kick out of Mike schooling the Nerdy Drug dealer about how and what to do should he pursue this line of work.
