    I don't expect a happy ending for any of the characters that don't appear in BB.

    I'm thinking Kim will probably die, but I also think she *might* survive. Maybe become the lawyer for Fring. Mike just heard everything that went on so everyone knows she's in the game, she's also more reputable and "corporate" than Saul. She might get pulled in, and like it, then breaks up with Jimmy/Saul. She too might be in the run in the flash forwards.

    Did anyone else think the voice on the other end of Nacho's phone call was Hank's? It definitely wasn't Mike, which is odd because Gus told Nacho to report directly to Mike.
    (The captions name a different character but it doesn't sound like him either - plus, Nacho's "Once he's down, that's it?" doesn't seem like a question he'd ask this person. I have no reason to believe they'd mess with the captions to mess with us, however.)

    I realize it makes no sense for Nacho to have flipped for the DEA, or Hank would have known about Gus from the beginning of Breaking Bad - unless he only informed on the Salamancas.

    Also, Nacho must have made the warning call to Mike as soon as Lalo got out of his car, for Mike to get over to Kim & Saul's apartment complex so quickly.

    Regarding the person on the phone (spoilerizing because his name is from the captions):

    The captions say it’s someone named ‘Tyrus’.
    Google info:
    Tyrus Kitt is a recurring antagonist in the Breaking Bad franchise. He was a member of the Los Pollos Hermanos security staff and a prominent enforcer of Gustavo Fring.

    I thought it was him just from his voice.

    Same here. I thought his voice was pretty easy to recognize. And it's not like he's a new character.

    What a great episode. The relationship and the acting between Saul and Kim is some of the best ever on TV. Kim is an incredible badass. And yowza, that dress? And that was the day she quit her job, did pro bono work, and saved their lives. Swoon

    I missed two things - what was the picture Kim looked at? And what was the pine cone looking thing she took with her?

    I think the photo was one of her pro bono cases (or their kid) and the other was that expensive liqueur top from when she and Jimmy scammed that dude into buying them all those super expensive drinks.

    Tequila! (Zafiro Anejo, not a real brand as BB (seen first there) couldn’t get a company to use their Tequila in a scene where it poisoned the drinker ;))

    Yes that's it. I couldn't remember what kind of alcohol it was!

    <shrug> Sounded more like Hank to me.
    Tyrus
    has always been a man of few words, and why would Nacho be reporting to him? Why would Nacho be asking him if "that's it?" That's not his call.

    These are good questions and I hope they have answers next week!

    Meh. I'm just overthinking it. :)
    It happened right after Gus and Mike's conversation, so Mike was probably so bent he delegated it. Gus holding a gun to Manuel Varga's head "doesn't sit well with him." Remember, the initial reason he even worked with Gus is that Hector killed a witness who wasn't "in the game." (And the cousins threatened his family) Threatening families and civilians is over the line for Mike. Now Gus is doing it.

    But what exactly can Mike do about it now that he's went down that road?

    Nuthin. Give Gus "that look" that only Mike is unafraid to give him. Gus knows Mike's "code."
    Gus isn't wrong about Nacho, though. He's not that sympathic. He was doing all those side deals while working for the Salamancas, then tried to hire Mike to kill Tuco (partly so he wouldn't get caught).

    This show is so well thought out. Earlier in that scene when it's revealed that Juan Bolsa hired the bandits, it makes so much more sense than anything we were coming up with. He was trying to help Gus (because it helps him)! He knows the Salamancas are screwing with the Fring operation, even though he's ordered them to stop.

    Gus is thinking so far ahead of his rivals....and his "bosses."

    I am curious why Gus wants to keep the Salamanca's around. Given that they are still around in BB, what is his angle or plan?

    In BB, Gus wanted to have Hector watch as he killed everyone in his family.

    Hector yes. But why Lalo?
