Critic Consensus: "Slip" continues Better Call Saul's character evolution with another gripping episode taking the series' story in unpredictable yet satisfying new directions.
Critic reviews for Slip
If you'd told, I dunno, basically anyone that the Breaking Bad prequel would be in large part about one of the guys from Spinal Tap dealing with electromagnetic Morgellon's, and that you'd give a s---, you'd have been laughed out of the room.
For everyone this week, things are clearly coming to a head, and over the past two seasons we've learned that Episode 9 tends to be when the ka-boom happens. Brace yourself.
"Slip" was certainly an exercise in power shifts, and it's fascinating to watch Chuck become more sympathetic as Jimmy slips further into Saul.
Better Call Saul doesn't miss a beat. There's no such thing as a wasted moment, which has never been more evident as it is in "Slip."
If I didn't know better, I'd say we just watched Saul Goodman take his first case.
