I suppose that it was inevitable but watching Jimmy's slide into Saul is depressing. I am no longer entertained by it. His outburst at Howard revealed an angry, pathetic man. Odenkirk has been masterful in showing us the intricacies of Jimmy/Saul and, to a lesser extent, Gene. There were many points along the way where he could have stopped and changed the trajectory of his life but he didn't. My sympathy for him probably ended with this episode.
I sure hope not. I hope that her intelligence and her common sense tell her to get out and get far away from Jimmy. Kim knows what Jimmy is; she knows what life will be like with him. For me, the unfolding tragedy in this story is Kim and her loyalty to Jimmy.
I continue to be disappointed with Gus' storyline this season. In BB, Gus was a frightening but intriguing character. We knew just enough about him; he was intelligent, ruthless and able to play a long game. I don't think that I am learning anything new about Gus this season or, at the least, anything that expands his character. (I don't care about seeing Peter and Lydia again.) Yes - we see what he was willing to do to become a power player in the cartel but that, IMO, that makes him no different than the rest. Perhaps that is the intent but, IMO, it removes much of the mystery surrounding him.
