This week’s episode of Better Call Saul offers the viewer a glimpse into heartbreak and a shocking change of character and personality in the once likable Jimmy McGill.
This week’s episode is a subtle affair, one that lacks the emotional pull or frenetic action of its predecessors, yet in its own way builds up the tension, offering foreshadowing through very subtle means. And it’s perhaps the first episode of the series that truly feels more like a Breaking Bad episode.
This week’s episode of Better Call Saul stands in stark contrast to last week’s melancholic and funereal pace; instead, the episode is a relentless, amphetamine–paced ride that is shocking and brutal, yet manages to be one of the finest episodes to date.
The season premiere of AMC’s hit series Better Call Saul is a superb but dark, emotionally draining episode that kicks off what promises to be a dark, tragic––and possibly final––season.
