"Something Beautiful" is full of strong, small moments that continue to drive the show's complicated characters forward -- if ever so slowly.
Each small movement of last night will pay off down the road. Some series aren't as capable at pulling off these less crucial installments, but Better Call Saul does so with flare and emotion.
This is the kind of episode which represents "Saul" getting into its stride for a season, and the results are always delicious.
Something Beautiful was a significant milestone on the journey toward Saul Goodman.
Tonight's episode is called "Something Beautiful" - and it is.
While we know he meets a pretty gruesome demise, we're going to enjoy our time with him again while we still can.
Things are only going to get more complicated.
I want to stop and applaud how the wonderful way Gordon Smith's script portrays how pathetically lonely Neff is in the doghouse.
Just how many different ways can we drop our viewers' hearts into the pits of their stomachs? I, for one, am having a hard time recovering long enough to write about it. So, y'know, great job!
The best thing about Better Call Saul is not, and has never been, its Breaking Bad callback moments. The tragicomic dramas of Jimmy McGill are damn good television on their own, even without the dark-hatted specter of Walter White lurking on the horizon!
An intriguing, daring episode this week, but somebody get a Heisenberg batch of blue in that writer's room because this thing really needs to gather pace.
