Everyone is struggling to keep their cool in a Better Call Saul entry that meticulously sets up the season's storytelling pins, racking up suspense for the impending bowling ball that'll knock everything down.
Better Call Saul is back to its peak meticulousness, laying the groundwork for more scheming and doom. In a way, it's scratching that same itch its characters are looking to scratch themselves.
This whole episode has a sense of doors closing and destinies taking shape.
Hank's a lefty. Good to know.
This is uncharted territory. A good place to be as the real stories of this season are just kicking off.
I finally don't feel entirely comfortable referring to our protagonist as "Jimmy" anymore. Things have been headed this way for a while, and I'll admit I was in denial.
If the show can continue to juggle its central figures in this way, this very well could be the best season of Better Call Saul yet. Now excuse me, I feel like bowling for some reason...
"Namaste" is another good entry in Better Call Saul Season 5. Jimmy is disappearing into Saul Goodman, as he's now not just working with criminals but straight up taking advantage of them.
Predicting Better Call Saul is about as easy as predicting what color suit and tie combo Saul will wear to court, but "Namaste" certainly opened the door to one possibility: Jimmy and Kim's breakup goes down in court.
It's another exceptional episode, and sets up a great (fake) battle ahead between Jimmy and Kim.
It's not a new trick, this whole "introduce some vague idea in the cold open and pay it off later in an unexpected way" business... It's a Gillian/Gould classic. That doesn't make it any less good or cool or fun, though.
Kim sweeping up the broken glass after Jimmy shrugs it off and suggests letting someone else take care of it is the perfect illustration of the difference between Kim Wexler and Jimmy McGill.
Although "Namaste" may not have moved as fast as the other episodes this season in terms of plot, the time focused on Howard and Jimmy's relationship was well spent.
