Critic Consensus: "Witness" marks the long-awaited arrival of a fan favorite character -- and ends on an explosive note that leaves viewers clamoring for more.
Critic reviews for Witness
So much of this episode is paced so deliberately that when things become chaotic at the close, it's a genuine shock to the system, one that has us desperate to see what comes next.
"Witness" is the episode Better Call Saul viewers have long been waiting for, the one in which Gustavo "Gus" Fring finally makes his debut.
This episode offered a series of twists and turns and really got the Breaking Bad wheels turning.
Better Call Saul has been remarkable in how unafraid it's been of quiet.
I've said it before and I will say it again: I have serious reservations about Saul turning into blatant Breaking Bad fan service, yet "Witness" left me giddy with the sight of Giancarlo Esposito in that familiar uniform.
