The fourth season begins with Jimmy tries to adapt with Chuck's tragic death, he can't pass the time but Kim does her best to make him better. Meanwhile, Howard blows a new surprise by a serious confession that may change his whole fate.
"Breathe" was a sublime example of how an excellently-crafted, extended scene, featuring impeccable character beats, can easily outshine the grit and grime of TV's natural tendency to wow us with shocking violence.
Better Call Saul's slow pace is often praised, but as with last week's season opener this came across as sedated rather than slow burn, and the show could do with parcelling out some of its story a little quicker.
I get excited at even the suggestion of them reuniting because it might force Mike to spend more time in the uncharted territory that is the Jimmy McGill show, before "Saul" permanently goes over to his side.
Interesting that Jimmy and Kim were watching White Heat, which has a famous scene where James Cagney's character freaks out when he learns his mother has died. We're still waiting for that kind of scene from Jimmy... but will we ever see it?
One of the best parts of watching "Better Call Saul" is the way in which this show can surprise us with the way it uses the camera, from the most complicated tracking shots to a simple over-the-head look down.
