Better Call Saul Season 3 Episode 3 – Sunk Costs

I know I’m very late posting this and am doing so belatedly because I just don’t want to skip it. The two things I remember most are below:

Chuck reminding us why we hate him.

A.) Chuck (Michael Mckean) above reminds us all why we hate him. He is condescending in his application of his own self righteous standard onto his brother, who while obviously isn’t the best version of himself still does not deserve it considering he is actually trying to improve himself and win his appreciation.

Yes I know this is what the whole series is about but quite frankly I have forgotten about it due to the fact it’s been a while since the last season. I had said in my previous post that the main plot between Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) and Chuck was dying but in the few quick seconds of the scene above everything came back to me in a rush, and I started loathing Chuck as much as I did in the past.

Now we take that PPD and shove it up Chuck’s ass.

B.) The second thing that stands out here is marked by the tender moment between Jimmy and Kim (Rhea Sheehorn), where she declares solidarity with him in his decision to counter Chuck’s disbarment of him via a legal process. It is reminiscent of Season 1 when she was still working for the law firm and would sneak a cigarette break with Jimmy at the parking basement of their building. Kim’s decision to involve herself is big considering she has not done so in the past and also because this decision is a personal one, probably because she has grown to dislike Chuck after what he’s done.

It is also VERY exciting and promises of nothing but good things.

Of course there are other important events here involving Mike and the ingenious way he managed to get Hector’s truck covered in self indicting drugs, but while this can be the highlight of most TV shows out there that’s just par for the course for Vince Gilligan and his brilliant creations.
