Better Call Saul S02E01 "Switch" 2/15/16

Ok, so obviously it's still airing at the time of this posting, but I'm curious if anyone can take a WAG at what that bill was at the end of the financial consult.

50 bucks a shot, how many shots in a bottle? let's assume a full bottle.

Anyone?

And am I right in remembering that's the same guy that Walt blew up his car in the gas station?

It looked like a standard 26 oz bottle, and a single shot was probably between 1.5 and 2 oz.

The final round had three drinks, and presumably every round prior to that was the same. That means it was likely 12, 15, or 18 shots total. So, a total price between $600 and $900 for the tequila.

Where's that hotel? Like some of his Cicero shenanigans, seems stupid to be playing con jobs like that so close to home. As we know, Ken is indeed a local.

The cold open was fantastic. This is my favorite show on tv and I'm in heaven that it's back. I'm in hell that for whatever reason (cost?) the original plan of 13 episodes was cut to 10.

Yay, great start to Season 2!

I love all the back story stuff, but really do hope they can join back to the BB Saul story arc without rushing it before they run out of episodes.

Yes another great episode. Talking Saul was informative as well. I guess everyone assumes the show would end when Saul and Walter White meet? My guess is that is probably how it would end and I think the creators have said something along those lines but its not like WW was the one and only thing Saul was doing in his life during the BB storyline. It could go on. Probably not though.

The show could end when they meet. Or they could just jump forward and continue on with the Cinnabon time frame.

Actually with Bob aging that would make sense. Breaking Buns? Better eat a Cinnabon?

I don't think Jesse would end up at a mall in Omaha!!

They are knocking this show out of the park. Just wow.

Also, I was surprised to see Jimmy back in the pool -- isn't there a pretty good chance Ken could show up there again and kick the crap out of Jimmy?

Why do you think Gene was afraid to set off the door alarm that called the police? Because he is living an alternate identity and doesn't want to get busted as Saul? He didn't do anything illegal (recently).. he was just stuck in the dumpster room. You'd think he could trigger the alarm, and then go get in his car and leave before the cops arrived. And the tapes would show that he just got trapped and it was an "emergency" to exit the locked room. Or was it that he just didn't want to "make waves"? If it were me, I would have just triggered the alarm and left. It's not like he's not allowed in there.

Spoilerizing for those who did not watch "Talking Saul..."

Spoiler:
On "Talking Saul," the producers were saying how this showed how the mighty have fallen, so to speak...in the final scene, you have the "rebel," Slippin' Jimmy, who just has to flip that "forbidden" switch, but in the opening scene, which happened years later, of course, you have poor Gene, who is afraid to trip the alarm... makes sense... to me at least

I did see TS and caught that line. But they didn't say *why* he was afraid to open the door. Was he just that beaten down and afraid, or was it a more calculated reasoning not to trigger the alarm for fear of greater consequences?

I guess I thought they were saying it was a little of both...

We can guess that Gene doesn't want any attention from the cops in fear that a smart detective can figure out who he is.

Once again, I don't remember who could be after Saul. Maybe the Columbians?

In Talking Saul they mentioned that the Tequila was the same excellent stuff that Gus Fring gifted to the Don.

For anybody that doesn't know - and that seems to include Vince Gilligan and the other writers - those switches that get labled to not turn off are for the nearby electric heaters. I guess the electrical code requires that they have a shutoff switch for emergencies.

Yeah, as they're unwinding the entire Walter White empire in ABQ (and to some extent, Gus Fring), Saul Goodman is a big part of that. He's surely on an FBI most wanted list.

I guess I answered my own question.

I thought Saul was in Witness Protection. Not sure why I thought that? Did I dream it?

I think a self appointed witness protection. He and Walter White bumped into each other at the same fellow who was paid to HIDE people.

I loved the hummingbird that flew in front of the camera as the IT guy was waiting for Nacho. I wonder if that was just a happy accident and they left it in the shot?

I was confused for a second before realizing it doesn't really matter what the switch was, just that it said not to turn it off, so Jimmy just had to disobey. Such a great bookend to the open when he wouldn't trip the alarm. I binge-watched season 1 the last week or so. It's going to be tough to wait for new episodes.

Great episode.

Loved the Hummer, the "PLAYUH" license plate, and matching shoess.

So what exactly did the cops see on/behind the couch that caused them to moved it and look further? I rewound, but didn't catch anything.

The house, otherwise a tossed mess, was clean in front of the sofa. So the cops looked behind and found a hidey hole.

What was the law firm that Jimmy joined at the end of the ep? It wasn't the same one where he'd declined the offer earlier, was it?

If you look closely, the clean area in front of the couch makes a perfect arc when moving the couch away from the wall, just like the cops did. So they're pretty good at looking for clues like that.


Yes, it was the same law firm from the beginning of the show that's helping with the Sandpiper case, although it seemed like it was smaller than HHM.
