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.

It was nice to see Jimmy and Mike share the same scene for once, wasn't it?

By far the best part of the episode was the latest shift towards the world we known from its parent series.

"A Tale of Two Schemes" would be a more apt title for this episode. One works perfectly, the other is a flop. Both promise to lift this show into a higher gear.

Pretty incredible suspense-release roller-coaster we were taken on with Gus.

Offering plenty of Breaking Bad Easter Eggs without overindulging, more marvelous camerawork, and fresh drama that stands tall on its own, Better Call Saul shines yet again. If you're planning on writing a prequel, take notes.
