    Betsy and Kim are very similar right now. Both pushing their man around calling all the shots. Kim is just a lot smarter than ol chesty Betsy.

    Episode 2 was a BB show, though it was Vince directing

    Both Seehorn and Esposito are directing later in the season too

    Man. After watching other shows, you just appreciate the thought and effort that goes into this.

    The little things like setting up a camera behind the p trap under the sink for a whole 3 second shot is just next level compared to 99% of tv.

    The acting on this show is just so fucking nuts. Rhea Seehorn is so subtle its hard to imagine it being as effective as it is, but she lands everything to the point of “I know what she’s thinking, i know what shes up to. Or do i?”

    To expand on my thought. I dont think she wants cartel money. she wants to leave with the sandpiper money since those are obviously clean.

    I dont think she’s in prison. I think Jimmy would spend every waking second and his energy on helping her. She’ll burn him badly and i think she gets away with it. Betrayal from the woman he loves more than anything will be the worst form of closure he can get.

    I cant think of a way with the Jimmy we see now (rethinking his ways, trying to do good and not go too far) go all in saul if Kim goes to prison, that would most likely make him rethink shit more not less.

    Thats my guess.

    Just heard this discussed on a podcast, who was driving the car tailing Jimmy and Kim at the end of Carrot and Stick when they leave the Kettleman's tax place? Is it crazy to think that it could be Lalo?

    I thought that for a second but it wasn’t once they pulled out. Mike had a Chrysler and the follow car is like an 85 caprice.

    well Kim, Nacho and Lalo are still wildcards, but i agree with you. It’s like a “how will they tie everything together” type deal.

    bc he wants the Salamancas to kill Nacho and tie up loose ends. He made it look like nacho got paid from a bank in Peru, pointing the cartel in the direction of the Columbians for the hit. That’s my guess anyways.
    Howard’s PI imo

    That’s what I thought but the whole taking Nacho alive had to cross Gus’ mind and an enormous risk

    Adding the motel number in that made no sense

    He assumed the hitmen would kill Lalo. If they did he wouldnt have that problem. He’s not exactly close to Nacho and he’s in Salamanca territory.

    It makes sense. he made a flawed plan. it happens.

    I think this episode shows out that Gus is not perfect and that he needs Mike as a right hand man to discuss plans with. ala breaking bad.

    Just seems like Nacho potentially getting captured is doomsday scenario and Gus is too smart for that

    I’m done and will get over this small bit I disagree with

    They also set up nacho in the hotel with guys keeping watch with no intention of getting him out of there alive. He was expendable and a liability to Gus once he thought Lalo was dead. Nacho opens his mouth to Eladio and Gus is probably dead. The part that confused me most was that Mike placed that letter. Maybe he didn’t know what was in it. Also a very elaborate job just to place one clue. Swiping the dad’s Canadian ID gives me a little hope that Mike gets nacho out.
    Afaik Mike didn’t know about the extractor in BB, so he doesn’t get him out that way.
