Critic Consensus: "Nailed" is a standout episode that brings the action to a heartbreaking head leading into the season finale.
Critic reviews for Nailed
How foolish to have doubted show-runners Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould. After a mid season lull, Better Call Saul season two has pivoted masterfully and the big picture is coming into focus.
With tense crosscutting between Chuck's attempt to get the truth from the employee, Ernesto's pleas for McGill to leave the store and recuperate... the scene builds to a sickening climax:
For someone seemingly so reserved, Kim feels things so deeply, and when that passion comes out it's captivating.
Gilligan and Gould certainly understand people and the power of chemistry between them, and with only one more episode left this season, there are sure to be cliffhangers abound.
Well, it turns out that, for what seems like the first time all season, "Nailed" is in a hurry to give not only answers, but plenty of action to go along with them.
