Excellent article.
Many of his points I had myself while watching it. The aerial shot was brilliant. I, too, like the moral ambiguity in the show. I hadn't considered the things he said about Chuck and Jimmy; makes sense.
At first, I thought Nacho was going to drop the bottle on the floor, startling Hector, and therefore forcing Nacho to shoot him out of self-defense and because of the element of surprise. That certainly would have been a possible explanation to Hector's wheelchair origin. Do you think Mike and Gus are hatching a plan to kill Hector? Could that be their "arrangement"? Of course, whatever happens, we know the outcome.


Mike and Gus could be hatching a plan. Mike already knows about Nacho's plan so maybe Mike and Gus will use that info to enhance Nacho's plan.

I no longer get AMC so I'm missing this. We did catch up on Season 2 on Netflix this past weekend - great thing about everyone being sick is we can binge. But Season 3 shows apparently don't get shown. So we'll wait. The season 2 finale was a real jaw-dropper, though.

Have they ever explained why Chuck has this "allergy" to electricity? Did I miss it somehow?

Season three expounds on this. I hope you can see this season when Netflix adds it.

That was a hell of an episode last night. The finale next week should be a good one too. What do you think, one more season? The way the pace towards Breaking Bad has been the past few weeks, they could even end it next week. I haven't heard anything about their plans.
I think one more season would be just right.
I knew Kim was going to get in an accident but the way it happened made me jump. So, will she be able to sue the oil company if the reason she wrecked was because something happened to her tire on his property? Hmmm. I bet something comes of this...what do you think?

I kind of thought she dosed off because of the long hours. I dvred it, so maybe I'll watch that part again. Her time with Jimmy seems short now. I'm thinking that maybe she will get an offer from one of these companies to be their in house attorney and that's what will happen to her before Breaking Bad starts.

You may be right. I remember the No-Doze in her car, it's possible. I'm thinking of the beginning of the episode when she is stuck and uses board to get unstuck. Could have been a nail? Your explanation makes more sense. I'm ready for next episode.

Yeah, I was thinking the house attorney could be a possibility. I'm wondering if she will exit the series on bad terms with Jimmy or if it'll be bittersweet. Whatever happens the writers are going to surprise us, I think.

I'm in love with Kim. She can even get her car unstuck by herself. She can do it all. She is awesome. ;-D

That was a good season finale last night. The way things are lining up, next season should be the last one.

Do you think Chuck is gone? I think so.
Yeah, I do, too. I surprised myself by tearing up. Didn't realize I had so much empathy for him after how he treated Jimmy/Saul. When he started to kick the desk I knew he was going to commit suicide. At first, I thought he might have an accident like falling off a ladder while removing the light bulbs. After their last conversation Jimmy is going to be devastated. This has been a spectacular season and I'm anxious to see the next one. I agree, if they end it next year that will have ten episodes to flush up against the pilot of Breaking Bad. It makes me wonder if Vince Gilligan will bring back more cameos. I hope Kim doesn't have a "bad" end.

I just have this feeling that Kim is going to leave Jimmy and end up with me. ;-D

I just finished this season. This is one of those shows I prefer to record and then binge on.

Another great season!

Chuck is a grade A azz! I had less empathy for him as the season went on instead of more. I very much dislike him. Everything that happens to Jimmy/Saul can be traced back to Chuck always being such a grade-A son-of-a-hmmm. (Well almost...Jimmy does have a way of skirting what is right/wrong. But he does it in such a charming way!)

I was afraid Kim was going to die in her accident. I saw a spoiler online so I knew she was going to have an accident but nothing more than that. I do hate to think what is going to happen between her and Jimmy to break them up. (Other than her leaving him for fljoe.) ;-D ;)

I have only seen all of Breaking Bad one time through but I thought Nacho was one of Gus' men in BB? Must be just misremembering. It was SO fun seeing Gus again! He is so awesome, the way you can just see his thoughts racing, yet his face is stone cold calm. Always.

And Mike. Love his character so much too!

Going to be a long wait again, until next season!
