    And by "good surgeons" you mean "versatile veterinarians" ...

    If the bail is $7M, don't they only need $700K?

    I think it was stated as "cash" bail. In other words "no bond"

    Probably would be tough finding a bondsman willing to risk seven million.

    So how much does $7M in hundred dollar bills weigh? :)

    Imagine doing "farmer's walk" with 154 pounds, business shoes, no water, through the desert. You might make it 20 yards, once.

    I agree that there were a lot of good things in this episode, but I felt it was very drawn out, especially with only two episodes left. I think they could have interjected more of the other story lines (Gus, Nacho, etc). I also wouldn't call it 'as good as it gets'... this felt more like "The Fly" to me (but with better cinematography).

    On the Insider podcast, they said that although the actual weight of $7 million in cash would be about 150 lbs, or 75 lbs in each bag, they played it more like 100 lbs (50 lbs each) so Bob would actually be able to walk with the bags yet still make it look very difficult.

    "I got something for him, if he's still interested" - That's what I want to know, too. Who is "he?"
    My BB history is a little rusty but I don't remember rival cartels being willing to brazenly take on the Juarez Cartel (Eladio-Salamanca-Bolsa).

    Kim is so far into it now. Thus far Jimmy hadn't told the cartel anything about Kim, but now that they know, they have that to hold over him. Kim is either dead or she got out with a new identity from the vacuum cleaner guy.

    I'm crossing my fingers that the writers knew before they started shooting this season that Kim would need to be "vacuumed" and they were able to film a scene with Kim and Robert Forster at the same time they filmed Forster talking to Gene for the season premiere. But realistically, I don't think they'd resolve Kim's story this early. I suspect whatever happens to her will happen toward the end of next season so there won't be any way for Forster to appear if the decision is for her to get disappeared.

    Honestly, at this point it's just Lalo that knows about her, right? If the plan is to release him from jail and kill him, nobody else will ever know about Kim.

    Seriously, I don't think Kim and/or Jimmy can afford a new dust filter for a Hoover Max Extract Pressure Pro model 60 -- even if he does get paid by Lalo, which he obviously won't. Also, Saul's not to the point where he'd even know about Best Quality Vacuum (or Mike for that matter). The only person who has the funds and the contacts at this point would be Gus (who also has the $7m). So why would Gus pay for Kim to disappear? My personal opinion is that Kim does disappear, but not via Best Quality Vacuum, if you know what I mean.

    How does Gus have the $7M? Saul is still schlepping it through the desert (but at least they're on the road now).

    I'm assuming Mike gives it to Gus (which is why Mike was following Saul).

    that doesn't make sense. Mike said something about getting that money where it's supposed to go. Remember he wants Lalo out on bail. NOw, why they want him out on bail is the real curiosity, since Gus has mentioned that if anything happens to him in the US, they'll blame Gus.

    Or maybe they are hoping he'll skip bail and return home?
