    My man Nacho is crazycakes! The fact that they are using his dad against him is very in line with the typical Gus MO but it still angers me. The exact reason he can't get out is the person that he wants to get out for. This is a no win for him. I wonder what Lalo wants to do with Domingo. We know he can't die since he kicks it in BB so what else?

    Mike yelling at his granddaughter felt a bit out of left field. I get he's been boiling at the surface for some time but she's the last person I would expect him to lose it on.

    That was some slick moves by Saul with the maintenance. I thought for sure the DA would realize she was had when he said "20 minutes" haha!

    We didn't see much (any) backstory of Mike in BB but I wonder if he becomes estranged from his daughter and granddaughter as well. We know (assume) Kim's not around in BB-time but I dunno if that's needed for Mike's family.

    That’s his daughter-in-law. The reason why Mike lost it and yelled at his granddaughter was that he was getting upset when thinking about his son (who was a cop and died in the line of duty (However we learn later in BB that his sons death was more complicated)). The pressure of his killing Werner Ziegler and the memory of his son pushed Mike over the edge, and his anger unfortunately towards his granddaughter.

    Yeah I know he was already boiling on the edge but I guess I didn't get WHY he went off on her but now that you've said all this and jogged my memory about his son, it makes more sense!

    Predicition: In the very last episode of BCS, they are going to kill Kim off in the past or have her reunite with Gene in the future. Then again, those are both obvious and these are talented writers so it might just be neither.

    Well, we now know how Crazy 8 got his nickname.

    From his folding of a poker hand with 3 eights. Lalo called him “ocho loco”

    OH!!! I totally missed what his hand was. I did hear Lalo call him Crazy 8 later and Nacho correct him. I'm going to have to rewatch this episode!

    I was so confused reading this thread until I saw the other episode 1 thread.

    Is this episode 2?

    Yes, notice the difference in title and date of the episodes :)

    Can a mod fix my error on the Episode #??

    Judging from the way the episode ends, I assume he wants to hire Saul to represent him...

    That was hilarious. I loved the intro and the animation. I need to go back and see how many easter eggs there are in this.

    I sure hope the other 9 are in the can somewhere.

    EDIT: AMC posts a ton of extra video content online with each episode/

    I'm so happy this show is back... Excited to see how many "new" BReaking Bad characters that will make an appearance . Already got vacuum cleaner guy!! (RIP). Also a little scared as to what Kim's disposition will be at the end.. I really hope it's not a bad ending for her.

    Can you buy the Better Call Saul give away phones yet? I think it would be the perfect gift for my nephew. He's totally into BCS and Saul
