Yeah, I never heard the name/identification of the "good Samaritan"...

I also noticed that the old man took some pills when he was freaking out about the missing truck. Maybe he strokes out over the issue and that's how he wound up like he was in BB?

^I still think Mike is involved in that somehow.

Damn good episode. Can't wait for season finale. And I love Ernesto's Evo.

That was a pretty meh finale. Really slow buildup. Also that ending was predictable. Enter Saul?

May have had a predictable ending but it really illustrates the radical depth of dysfunction between Jimmy and his brother. Interesting to see where that goes.

And who knows what Mike is up to that wasn't at the house he was looking at?????

Well based on the opening of the ep and what their mom said, as good as Chuck was, it probably seemed that Jimmy was what he perceived as the preferred brother because he was the needy one. Chuck was driven for their mom's approval by being successful and hard work and doing stuff right. Certainly a fascinating character as we peel back layers. I'd like more back story in what seemed as a failed relationship.

There's only one guy in the BB/BCS universe that could've pulled that off. I'm hoping it's who I think it was.

Re-arrange the first letter of each episode title in season 2. Hint, its two words

Gah, still a couple months away. May re-watch Season 2 just to get myself familiarized again, or wait & see if AMC airs a marathon.

Time for a bump since it's back on!

Enjoyed the first two episodes but a little frustrated at how slow it's moving. Some of the scenes seem unnecessarily long. But I guess that's the production style.

Episode 2 started to build some real intrigue. But it is a real slow burn.

Poor Jimmy. Chuck really dislikes him.

I'm interested in Mike's story and how he ends up working for Gus

I like how Jimmy is the "black sheep" of the family, such a disappointment to Chuck for breaking the rules,
doing "distasteful" and illegal things. But its squeaky clean Chuck who is the real scumbag. Whatever else
Jimmy is, he genuinely cares for Chuck but over and over we see that Chuck is petty and jealous and takes
pleasure in screwing Jimmy over. I'm hoping the complete breakdown of that relationship is epic!

I haven't seen the finale yet (recorded last night), but looking forward to it. I've enjoyed this season. Biggest complaint is that it wasn't long enough. Too few episodes.

^ I watched "Talking Saul" after the show. I was left with the impression they are leaving options open. They said they haven't worked on Season 4 yet, so maybe they'll explore alternatives.

Yeah now that I think about it I guess Chuck can have a season where he's super weak now that he's destroyed his home, was forced to quit, and cut off things with Jimmy. More likely we see how Hector ends up wheelchair bound. I guess Tuco coming out of prison soon to care for him

I think they are interesting parallel stories. "Talking Saul" brought up a good point - Kim does not appear in Breaking Bad at all. So they are going to have to resolve what happens to her. That by itself is going to be an interesting story line I think. The whole Mike/Gus/Nacho being the other.

I was afraid Kim was going to bite it from all the work. You can tell it was building to something. Didn't think it'd be to a Blockbuster night
