So damn good.

Spoiler
So is Jimmy really fooling himself that it was Howard's fault Chuck died when he himself orchestrated the insurance fiasco.

The dude following Nacho. I guess Guy wants leverage on Nacho

I was also wondering what the fuck else is Mike doing. Great scene

My take on the final scene was Jimmy isn't fooling himself - he hates Howard for how he was treated, and maybe how Kim was too. I think having Howard take on that blame was revenge - that's why Jimmy let him believe it. He seemed pretty cheerful right after that.
. The rest was a pretty slow burn, but that's the style of the show. Looking forward to the rest for sure!

I think you're both right, Jimmy isn't fooling himself on his role on Chuck with the attorney insurance angle but I think he also likes making Howard suffer for all he put Kim and Jimmy through.

My two fav characters are Nacho and Mike, they are so proficient in their jobs and have integrity for their sense of values.
Watching last night with Nacho with his father scene was so honest in their relationship were so few words are spoken but alot of meaning.
Mike and Lydia make for amusing dialog.

Since Nacho is not in Breaking Bad, I have a bad feeling it's not going to end well for him in BCS.

Yeah either he dies or he escapes. For all we know, he could be the one that Jimmy/Saul thinks is following him. I think he's the only one unaccounted for post-BB since Gus, Mike, and Walter are all dead and I don't think Jesse would but that'd be a nice spin.

And Kim. I think the absence of both in BB could make for some epic story lines in BCS.

We still have the hope of post-BB BCS in B&W for all the characters. Sorry for all the acronyms.

I love how in BCS develops all the characters and brings depth to their dialog and scenes.

It's really a show you have to actively watch. Most shows I can have on while I'm on the computer and go back and forth, but there are a ton of scenes in BCS that have no dialogue but have a lot of meaning. I like that.

Does anyone know why Kim was distracted by the models, and then very emotional at the letter from Chuck? My wife and I can't figure out if that was a seed planted for later or if we missed something...?

I think she was worried about the amount of work with the huge expansion the bank is making. Remember she got into that accident because they opened more branches locally and she was already overworked. The Chuck thing I'm not sure. It seems she's handled all the postmortem arrangements for Jimmy so it's putting its toll on her.

Man with that intro and how the party went, you can tell these 2 aren't lasting by the finale.

Downloaded this before I went on my trip to watch on the plane. Made it through the first two seasons already. Really like this show.

Does anyone else feel like this season is moving too slow? On some level I appreciate some of these drawn out sequences, like Mike doing the inspection on that facility. But some of these story arcs have way to many "watching grass grow" scenes. Like do we really need a 5 min montage of how bored Jimmy is at the cell phone store? Sometimes I feel like we're watching the characters do very mundane things that don't move the needle on the story very far. We're almost through the season and it seems like we've been watching maybe 2-3 weeks of time progression on the show itself.

Most of the series has fallen on the slow side, IMHO. This compared to Breaking Bad where the show goes from a decent clip to warp speed at the end has caused me some minor frustration.

Agree that this has been a slow season that I expected to faster paced from the previews.

I feel like it's been a very slow season and that tonight is the night it all goes nuts. They're 2 episodes left and I feel like the last one was one to set up tonight. Lets hope tonight is the night stuff really unfolds.

BTW Kim's Audi A8 is sexy. I am ready to see Saul get his Cadillac too.

paint dry time. Very disappointed at the slow pace this year. I thought this would be the season things really got heated up.

Finally caught up - thought it was finally an episode that moved along and had some intrigue to it. I wonder what the ramifications of Saul's board decision will be. And the guy that escaped from Mike - I think it's not going to end well for him. I think it was a pretty good set up for a season finale.

Typically penultimate finale episodes are good setups for the actual finale. Some gets resolved with of course a large cliffhanger.

Not the best finale. We knew what was going to happen to Werner. I didn't Lalo was fucking Spiderman. Ending was good and showed more of the Kim wedge. Where was post-BB scene?
