Jimmy was on fire last episode as he closed a phenomenal number of deals, albeit through less than legitimate means. But now the talented lawyer might have to pay for his actions, both in his professional and personal life.
"Better Call Saul" has shown that Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) has all the makings of a great lawyer, especially when he brings out the showmanship that his Saul Goodman alter ego is known. It netted him quite a number of new clients in "Amarillo" but also landed him in trouble with his bosses at Davis & Main. Meanwhile, Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) starts to worry about his daughter-in-law Stacey (Kerry Condon) and promises to help her move out of the neighbourhood.
The fallout from the previous episode continues as an AMC synopsis for episode 4 teased that Jimmy's actions results in unexpected consequences for his girlfriend Kim (Rhea Seehorn). Mike ponders on Nacho's (Michael Mando) job offer that might lead to grave results.
A trailer for the upcoming episode, titled "Gloves Off," shows that the kid gloves are indeed off and Jimmy has to face some difficult situations. The short clip begins with Jimmy walking away from Kim, looking frustrated. He's then informed by one of the directors that the firm is voting to fire him "for cause," either because of the ad he ran or the Sandpiper clients he solicited. Chuck (Michael McKean) is seen being pressured by the directors and also being confronted by Jimmy. Meanwhile, Mike appears to be deep in thought before a wad of bills is thrown down on the table. The teaser ends with Jimmy asking Kim to call him while Mike checks out a gun.
Despite the ominous consequences that Nacho's job offer might bring, Mike would probably take it as he needs the money to get his daughter-in-law and his granddaughter out of the neighbourhood.
It can be argued that Kim has done the same thing for Jimmy as she continues to stand by him despite her frustrations about his questionable decisions. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Seehorn said she believes that her character's love for Jimmy is "all-inclusive," but his actions will also cause her to look deeper into herself and their relationship.
Episode 4 of "Better Call Saul" will be aired on March 7 on AMC.
