I think this is a process of revealing Saul not transforming into him. Jimmy is a bad person. If anything goes a way he doesn't like he'll burn it all down and looks immediately for someone else to blame. His delight seemed a quick turn to me as well, but really what do you expect at this point. He's a child who found out he won't be grounded because his sister is taking the fall.

You think? What do you make of his job search. Or should I say "job search"?
Kim's outburst at Howard really hit me. That was a hell of a scene.
The last scene with Nacho and Arturo getting jumped was really disturbing. Up till now really visceral violence has been off screen. I expect there's only going to be more of that and I really don't enjoy that.

Damn this show keeps getting better and better. You'd think having to conform to BB would constrain the story, but nope.
Favorite lines from this week:

Chuck: Served on platters, that's right. Thanks Jimmy.

Howard: I hate to interrupt but there's a Mr. Bushmillls waiting in my office.

Rich Schweikart: Well we have some banking work, but I wouldn't say we have a division.
Kim: Would you like one?

Mike: You build out a stocked bar, beer on tap. I mean they're Germans so...

Jimmy: I've got a pressing need only five thousand dollars will cure.

Howard: Fuck you Jimmy!
Jimmy: There you go. Use that.

Saul: You get one warning. And that, was it.

Also, Gus' fable to the comatose Hector was one of the great villain monologues of all time.

I've been musing over Jimmy and Kim's inevitable breakup for some time. This week looked like it was just going to happen. They grew apart as we knew they must. But then Jimmy comes to her in full Saul mode and she takes the case to save him from himself. Right up to the last line where she's going above and beyond. At some point doesn't she have to accept that he's toxic and no good will come of associating with him? Shouldn't that point have been when she learned he was dealing burners to street people, if not before?

I'm looking at a potential plot hole. We know Saul will be a practicing lawyer in New Mexico. Much has been made over a condition of Jimmy's probation is he's forbidden from associating with known criminals. But now he's on record as hiring one for security and all but abetting several others.

Gus is a suuuuuper villain.
