The montage was a hoot -- more than worth sacrificing a little internal logic for.

One thing's certain, though, and that's that Jimmy has decided to fully commit to the grifter's advice and give up his life as a corporate sheep to become a full-time wolf. That alone makes "Inflatable" one of the most satisfying episodes of the season.

Jimmy and Kim have spent much of this season, and "Inflatable" in particular, struggling to pull off half-measures when it comes to their careers and their relationship.

It turns out that Better Call Saul is, above all else, a character study and as the writers of this show delve into Jimmy's psyche, they are also laying out the origins of Saul Goodman.

That, my friends, is effective television!

Lots of questions here, and given what we know about the future of the Salamancas, lots of intrigue about how it will all go down.

Bob Odenkirk was hilarious and dramatic when he needed to be, and the plot really moved along for him.

Mike made his decision years ago to be a predator rather than prey, and there's no reneging on that now. And as for Jimmy - whether Kim sees it or not - he's no less than a wolf in Saul's clothing.

It's a good bet that Jimmy's criminal relationship with Mike, the one Breaking Bad exposed, is about to begin. And the Salamanaca's, who now have history with both characters, may be involved heavily.

This week showcased some impressive growth for our characters, something only made possible by the show's dedication to letting these people breathe on screen. And if that feels dull to you, well, that's your loss.

Better Call Saul is at its best when it balances its comedy with rich character drama, and "Inflatable" was a perfect example of how that can successfully pay off. Plus, so many Saul suits.

In "Inflatable," we see the entire span of Jimmy McGill's duplicitous incubation, from the earliest flickers of juvenile dishonesty to the eventual emergence of that flamboyant, flimflam-spinning courtroom jester Saul Goodman.

This week's episode is mostly about moving pieces into place. But as is always the case with Better Call Saul, the pleasures of the story arise less from what happens than from how it happens.
