Great ep this week. Love all the stuff involving Mike & Nacho; and the scene with Jimmy explaining what a "squat cobbler" is to the detectives was hilarious.
Yeah, I really like the nerdy criminal
He really feels like he's been plucked straight from the Fargo universe and inserted into the BB/BCS universe.
I hope every season has James coining a new phrase, last year being a Chicago Sun Roof.
There was actually a little nod to that sun roof incident in the latest episode. When Jimmy gets in his new company car, he looks at the sun roof with a concerned/regretful look on his face.
Holy shit! Best episode yet? Not to mention we got 3
I like the hints about Mike being an ex-sniper, possibly in Vietnam. I was dying to get more of Jimmy's plot after last week's episode, but I'm glad they focused on Mike in this one, because WOW it was good.

Another super solid episode!
I don't know who I hate more at the moment: Chuck, Howard or Erin. I loved the backstory with Chuck's wife and his & Jimmy's father owning the store. Michael McKean did an amazing job at delivering that tale.
And yet another
I have the feeling that perhaps the reason Hector ends up in a wheelchair is because of Mike? That'd be interesting, if true.
- oops, turns out BB already hinted at the reasons for him ending up in the wheelchair, never mind! Completely forgot about that.
Really loving this show! Season 1 was great but season 2 is even better, imo.
Episode 6 was fantastic, best scene was when the Cousins showed up watching Mike at the motel and this came on:
Interested to see where all of Mike's problems with the Salamancas end up (most likely with him working with Gus), but I'm loving Jimmy's side of the show, too. I thought it was great when he broke the cup holder, awesome visual metaphor.
I'm starting to feel the Breaking Bad cameos are being shoehorned in just for the sake of it.
I do agree with you on this.
Whilst it's fun seeing all these returning BB characters pop up, I feel like they've gone overkill with it this season. So much so, that it's drowning out Jimmy's side of the story, which is kind of the whole point (and name) of the show. If they stuck to 2 or 3 characters a season and spaced out their appearances, e.g. Ken & Krazy-8, I think it'd give Jimmy/Saul a lot more room to breathe.
Then again, we are meant to be seeing how Mike eventually ends up working with Gus, so I am very excited to see him appear on the show (which one of the showrunners pretty much confirmed will eventually happen, in a recent interview), since he's my favourite BB character.
The Cousins definitely felt shoehorned, they could have used any generic Cartel hitman/hitmen, but oh well. I guess you gotta keep the people who hate the "boring lawyer" stuff happy. Which is a damn shame. But as you said, the preview for ep 7 suggests Jimmy will be definitely be delving into Saul territory soon, with his new bright pink suit.
That final scene! I can't believe we only have 1 more episode to go. Then it's just under a year wait until season 3.
The prospect of Gus showing up in season 3 (which was pretty much confirmed by that final scene with Mike in season 2 & the hidden anagram in the episode titles (which was confirmed to be legit by Vince Gilligan & co.)) has me extremely excited for what comes next.
I was so shocked/angry by that last shot of Chuck turning off the tape recorder, the fucking sneaky asshole.
As soon as Jimmy said "It's your word against mine" I knew what Chuck had done. Such a giveaway line...a good one though.
Of course, it remains to be seen what Chuck does with that information/evidence. He may yet die or have a change of heart.
Or Jimmy could pull another rabbit out of his butt. He's very good at doing that, and juggling multiple butt-rabbits all at once.
