Critic Reviews for Fall

Of all the jobs gone bad in this episode, Jimmy's is the one that really hurts-even more so Chuck turning on the firm he helped build when his colleagues try to force him out..

Season 3 Episode 9, Fall, puts a little too much focus on Jimmy than we'd like, but we're fascinated nonetheless.

A lot of pins were set up to be knocked down in next week's finale, and we can't wait to see what's in store.

Nearly three seasons through Better Call Saul, our main characters have driven themselves apart to a point that's no longer easy to ignore, especially with how they're laid out in this week's episode.

He's not Saul Goodman yet, but he's much closer than I want him to be, dammit.

Jimmy adjusting to life away from being a lawyer hasn't been meaningless, but it did seem like we were waiting for something new to suck Jimmy into its orbit. This week, it appears like the writers have found that next thing.

As was true with regard to the next-to-last episodes of earlier seasons...find myself unsure where the plot is heading. I don't mean that the story lacks options... I could list 10 things that might occur next week, many of them riveting.

Last week's "Slip" teemed with tension, but "Fall" is full of dread. Notwithstanding Better Call Saul's typically deliberate pace, the season's penultimate episode unfolds like a slow-motion car crash before culminating in an actual, inevitable wreck.

Better Call Saul has done a great job of ramping up the tension in the back half of this season, and bad events are finally starting to come to a head.

Jimmy McGill's essential goodness has never really been in question -- that is, until now. It's becoming easier than ever to see Saul Goodman looming on the horizon.
