"Smoke" kicks off Better Call Saul's fourth season by finally shifting Jimmy's disturbing transition to Saul into full gear.
For all its quirks, Better Call Saul never forgets its mission statement to show us the transformation of a man, and the fact that it remains a fascinating journey is a tribute to the talent of all involved.
Better Call Saul season 4 is born in fire, and the episodes that follow are left sifting through the ashes.
Jimmy is breaking bad now. It will probably take time for the process to wrap-up completely.
Has Jimmy finally -- and fully -- crossed over to become Saul Goodman?
It was another milestone moment for Jimmy's transformation into Saul.
You don't have to have seen Breaking Bad to savor the tension and sorrow of Odenkirk's performance.
As the new season demonstrates, the AMC show has grown richer in the process, even if the pacing at times remains a trifle sluggish.
The prequel series inches closer to the Breaking Bad timeline and Jimmy transforms into the shady lawyer Saul Goodman that we know.
In many ways, this is the plot template of "Saul" in miniature: con, followed by guilt over con, followed by con.
Really, no one in Better Call Saul should take their eye off the ball, because "Smoke" doesn't merely foreshadow -- or in this case, contemplate the consequences of -- fire.
