    Also, Bolsa is playing both sides really hard and I’m honestly having trouble following his thread at times.

    What confuses you about Mike placing the letter? He still ultimately has to do what Gus tells him to do

    I feel like Mike would have had a trick up his sleeve for that

    I don't. Mike is perfectly willing to disagree with and confront Gus directly when he feels it's necessary. But that also involves putting his own neck on the line. He wasn't willing to go that far out on the limb for Nacho, a guy he likes but who is in the game. He was for Nacho's dad. Seems in line with his character to me to make his displeasure about the Nacho course of action known, but then to still follow orders. Like it's quintissential Mike to me

    As he said in the episode “it wasnt my call” if Mike pulls some kind of trick he’ll most likely lose his “job”

    He saved the guy who isnt in the game (Nachos dad) He is quite clear in his “you’re either in the game or not”

    Mike is doing all he can to save Nacho too, even to the point of saying he’ll go get him. I dont get why people think Mike could do much more than he is.

    sorry if already discussed, but cool bit of insight was Gus knowing Lalo was alive because Hector looked him in the eye. Something he never does. Another time where Hector looks at Gus and it let Gus know something was up? Right before he kills him.

    Am I the only one who didn't get this first time watching?

    Also, I saw another thread about how he spoke in Spanish initially when calling Hector, then when the nurse was like "let me get someone who speaks Spanish" he was like "no it's ok I just need to speak to Hector" to confirm that she didn't understand the language and thus he could just say whatever over the phone without worrying about her telling anyone. Lalo is on bad motherfucker

    The dead body at the house had me confused until I read a review afterwards and it mentioned this. There was so much going on in that first episode and I didnt catch either of these.

    Damn 2.5 hour premiers lol

    Yeah I thought Mattie was a child that got dental work and didn’t catch Mateo being the lookalike while he was in the house. I just thought it was setting up how much he did for the family in order to expect what he did out of them. The dental records confirmed line took a second to land and I was like oooooooh

    Missed a bit of the start and didn’t go back and rewind yet. What was the significance of the cold open with the blue flower?

    edit: nvm I just went back and realized it was the shard of glass. At first I was thinking was a Lilly of the valley call back, but I know those are white petals.

    I think it is mostly someone known to the cartel that’s a Peruvian rival of sorts, but they don’t factor into this world outside of being Gus’s scapegoat.
