He still has the diamonds. He just needs to get back to his place before the cops figure out Gene's last name, where he works and where he lives. The first two require mom to talk to the kid in jail. The third comes from the first two.

It's possible Gene told Jeffie's mom (I keep forgetting Carol Burnetts character name) his last name.. And if not, maybe she knows he works at the Cinnabon in the mall.

Maybe..

When Jimmy/Saul/Gene goes to check what is on her computer and it's one of his BCS commercials all I can think is how long would that take to download with a modem connection???
Well it was the next morning.

I think Kim went into a very numb existence as a means of self preservation, pretty much from the moment that Lalo killed Howard. She was living on autopilot, not even thinking whether she was content or discontent. Saul called her out and she realized she had to confess in order to get out of her stupor.

She is highly emotionally disciplined and capable of charging forward without letting her emotions get in the way, and this quality of her was still in play throughout her trip to Albuquerque. Only when she was on the bus, getting ready to leave, did she let her guard down and allow those emotions to surface.

Man, the Kim scenes hurt (in a good/dramatic way) to watch.
Yup! Yup! Yup!

:oops:
Kim is now safe in a life she low-key hates. I'm sure she is not satisfied, which is maybe why she confessed to make her life more exciting again.
Saul called her out and she realized she had to confess in order to get out of her stupor.
Yeah, I think above all she has scruples, and Jimmy calling her out ("Why don't you confess?!?") made her realize there is some atonement left for her to do.

Did you notice Saul Goodman's law diploma at the beginning? I wonder what the procedure is to change the name on your diploma (although I suppose Saul would just forge the one on the wall of his office).

Yeah, that had to be soon after he got busted in the DEA raid that Walt was riding along on. Jesse apparently crossed paths with Kim for that conversation before Walt approached him to be his partner.
The scene with Jimmy and Kim signing the divorce papers was in late 2004 (the case was dated 2004 and they would have no reason to drag it out, especially if Kim is trying to leave town). The pilot episode of Breaking Bad takes place in September 2008. So I don't think this interaction between Emilio and Saul had anything to do with the DEA bust that Walt witnessed.
Does Gene have 100k cash to pay for the extraction? Kind of weird that he was going to do another extraction before he even began this scam. Don’t know if he has it even now.
Wasn't the extraction price now double?
When Gene called for the extraction at the beginning of S5, Ed said the price would be double what it was before and asked Gene if that would be a problem. Gene said it wouldn't be a problem. So Gene had the money before, and now has more due to the events of the previous episode.

I saw 2004 on the document but it identified the date of the marriage. Or did I miss something else?

They did say on the post-show that 6 years had elapsed when Jimmy called her in Florida so the divorce in 2004 makes sense. I just didn't see it on the documents Jimmy had in the office.

The document says the date of marriage was May 6, 2004, but there’s also the case number, which indicates the case was filed in 2004. Plus during the phone call, Gene/Saul/Jimmy said it had been six years. And according to the timelines on fan sites, Howard was killed in late June 2004. So I think we have to assume that scene where they’re both signing the divorce documents is late 2004.

I really enjoyed the scene with Kim and Jessie. It took me a few seconds to recognize Jessie.

Howard's death broke Kim. She's so broken she can't even make a decision between vanilla and strawberry ice cream. That bus scene about broke my heart. Hopefully she will be able to heal after coming clean to the authorities and to Cheryl. After all, she's supposed to save herself.

Gene has definitely broken bad. I thought for sure he was going to kill someone this episode. First the drunk guy whose house he was robbing. Then I thought for sure he was going to strangle Marion with the phone cord. He has definitely lost it. I'm very excited to see how the show ends. Gene will either die, go to prison (where he become the lawyer to the inmates) or start over somewhere else with another new identity. I can't see him getting away, so I think it will be either die or go to prison.

Interesting that everything bad that's happening to Gene now is his own damn fault. If he'd just stuck to the plan, he would have gotten away clean (although the broken back window would have raised some questions). He had accomplished his goal and was ready to leave...but then he couldn't resist burglarizing the place. Which gave the cops time to freak Jeff out, and everything that followed from that.

Of course, his insisting on executing the plan himself was the first stage of his self-destruction...

I'm amazed. I don't doubt it (or at least, that it's as correct as it can be), I'm just amazed.

I got a kick out of Talking Saul when Bob Odenkirk had no idea how long the phone call was after the divorce. They told him it was six years and not a few months and he shrugged and said something like "I dunno, I don't watch the show..." I have a somewhat better handle on the timeline than that, but not a lot better.
