Saul 3.08

Better Call Saul 3.08 – Slip
 

Chuck consults with Dr. Cruz, and admits that the events of the disciplinary hearing demonstrated that his EHS may not be real (!)

Jimmy’s guitar store clients become suspicious of his motives and refuse to pay him. Jimmy stages a “slip and fall” con, intentionally slipping on a drum stick and injuring himself in the process.Jimmy really slips down the morality pole here, ripping off a young man of $700. He is genuinely injured, although he has a new guitar and badly plays ‘Smoke on the Water’.

Nacho puts his plan to kill Hector in motion, successfully switching his heart medication pills with a carefully prepared substitute containing only ibuprofen.

Mike, using information he gained from Nacho, tracks down the body of the Good Samaritan that Hector shot (in “Nailed”) and reports the discovery to the police.

Later that night, Mike approaches Gus to seek help in laundering the remaining $200,000 he stole from Hector so that it can be left to his family.

Mike comes out of this episode best, and his relationship with Gus appears to have begun.
