BETTER CALL SAUL: SEASON 3
Aka Breaking Slowly Bad
1 FRING’S BACK Season 3 of Better Call Saul saw the show slowly converge with its mothership, Breaking
Bad. After teasing the return of drug lord Gus Fring via an acrostic contained within Season 2’s episode titles, Giancarlo Esposito did indeed come back, to start a business with Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks). 2 GOOD LUCK, CHUCK For a show about lawyers, there’s been precious little courtroom action in BCS. That changed with episode five, where the bristling rivalry and his brother Chuck (Michael Mckean) came to a head during the hearing to decide whether Jimmy should be disbarred for his earlier assault on his older sibling. 3 MEET SAUL GOODMAN By season’s end, Jimmy Mcgill still hasn’t become the blustering blowhard criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. But he did assume the identity briefly in episode six, hiding behind a fake name in order to flog some commercial airtime that was costing him a pretty penny.
