Critic Consensus: Though more of an expositional creep than previous episodes, "Piñata" maintains the season's emotionally charged character growth and provides a powerful, mildly petrifying performance from Giancarlo Esposito.
Critic reviews for Pinata
If you didn't get chills during Giancarlo Esposito's bedside monologue, you're as (allegedly) comatose as Hector Salamanca.
Pinata, may have been the most revealing episode yet in terms of the journey to becoming Saul Goodman,
It's becoming clearer that the final "Saul" straw will come when this dream collapses entirely.
Esposito is phenomenal, delivering the speech in a steady, measured, menacing way.
Another perfectly competent episode of Better Call Saul that does little to explain just where we might be heading this year, and unfortunately we're running out of time.
