    Kim did marry Jimmy so that she can't be compelled to testify against him. How long will Jimmy continue to be honest with her?

    Nice to see Lydia again. I love to hate her!

    Gus helped Nacho blow up his restaurant. Guess that keeps Nacho's butt covered.

    I figured there must be some back story there, but I don't remember what it was.

    When he was shown in BB, he was in the tasting room sampling new dipping sauces that were being tested for one of the restaurants. This was when he was being investigated by the local police after the s#$t when down with Gus. He then killed himself in the bathroom with a portable defibrillator.

    Was he the same guy in Breaking Bad who killed himself with the AED device?

    I liked Kim's argument when she went back in the room to call out the president of Mesa Verde for not taking her advice. The advice was specifically to cover her butt in the first place, but that was really well done.

    I swear the look on kim's face when he said "see you Thursday" was almost disappointment.

    Interesting tidbit on the Insider podcast. They actually blew up that building in real life. It was a fast food restaurant that was going to be torn down, so they dressed the inside of it to look like a real restaurant, then destroyed everything, then blew it up. No visual effects. All practical effects. And even more interesting, they said that rigging the shot to show the frozen chicken sliding into the fryer was much more complex and required CGI (to remove fishing line that was used to pull the chicken down the slope).

    I still wonder whether the real reason Jimmy and Kim got married is to take advantage of the marital privilege. That seems like a really stupid reason, and maybe just something Jimmy said to Huell to end the conversation. First, Kim proposed the marriage and she didn't know at the time that Jimmy was about to get very deeply involved with the Cartel. Second, if Kim really thinks Jimmy is going to be doing hardcore illegal stuff that would lead to her being questioned, I don't think she'd want to still be with Jimmy. And finally, Kim seems like she's honorable enough, and respects the law enough, that even if she were not required to testify against Jimmy, she still would do it if she knew he was guilty. Unfortunately, they didn't discuss this motive on the Insider podcast.

    I'm wondering how the Mesa Verde story ends. Do they listen to Kim now? Will there be further interactions with Jimmy/Saul and his squatter client?

    I thought it was pretty clear they would listen to Kim from now on...I guess we'll see.

    On your second question, I would welcome that!

    I think the issue with Mr. Acker is resolved. Mesa Verde agreed to let him stay there, paid him a settlement amount, and agreed to build their call center on a different property. So there really isn't much left in that story.

    I didn't get that from the meeting with Mesa Verde and the second meeting where Kim aired her problem with MV not taking their advice, especially.

    It was all hashed out in the scene between Jimmy and Kevin Wachtel. Then when Kim returned to their apartment that night, it was clear that Kevin had agreed to everything and the deal was done.

    Why is Mike now trying to get Lalo out of jail after he put him there?

    Lalo was continuing to cause problems from jail, and Gus decided he would be easier to deal with if he were outside and back in Mexico.

    "back in Mexico" made me think of this song. The Coasters. Wish I was in Mexico, or anywhere except this apartment, which I have left only a couple of times in the past couple of weeks.

    Better Call Saul is getting me through a couple of days, but it's like last season. The whole damn show just zips right by. You just start to get into it and it's over.

    She covered her butt well. Interested to see where her storyline goes. I didn't buy her asking Jimmy to get married at first. But I think she was arguing against her better nature. She knows who Jimmy is, hates it, but is intrigued by it. I don't think it will end well for her.

    It's been a long time since I've seen Breaking Bad. She wasn't in it, was she?

    Just like Jimmy is slipping to his original nature I think Kim is slippin to her childhood nature. Hopefully in the final season they will give us a little more depth into Jimmy=>Saul=>... Cinnabon character life.
