Better Call Saul (S2E09) -- "Nailed" -- 4/11/16




Mike takes a methodical approach to his mission. Someone questions Chuck's capabilities. Jimmy faces a personal dilemma.

Episode 9 of 10

Think I can guess what the title of this episode refers to.

I'm seeing a double meaning in the title.

One involves Mike and rhe device he was building. The other is going to involve someone else getting nailed metaphorically.

Yeah, i love this show, but they really took their time in the build up to a lot of this season. It's like the first season was in over drive and now they're taking it down a couple of gears in how they want to advance forward.


Also, Mike's grandkid just needs to hit the coffee hard.

Why weren't they calling 911?

Shiiiiit. Great episode. That scene between Jimmy, Chuck and Kim was tense.

Re: Better Call Saul (S2E09) -- "Nailed" -- 4/11/16

Excellent episode.

I like the the similarity in theme between this and many of the Breaking Bad episodes - that actions have consequences. Mikes actions caused a good samaritan to be killed, and Jimmys actions caused a major blow to Chucks professional reputation and indirectly caused him physical harm.

I was thinking earlier in the episode that Jimmy should be covering up his tracks with the photocopy shop - and was surprised it took Kim's comment to make him think of it.

Was Jimmy pressed for time to shoot the commercial? Couldn't he have done it on the weekend when the school was closed... or find one of many other buildings that had a flag?

Oh shit! That was great.

I was honestly surprised that Kim gave in to Jimmy's lie and then stuck up for him even though she knew he was lying. That was quite an intense confrontation.

I loved that it took Kim's comment for him to realize that he didn't quite cover his tracks. You can slowly see Saul Goodman emerging. He has to learn from his screw ups how to become the slimy lawyer he later becomes.

I don't get it.

Was there any significance to Mike asking the waitress if it snows in Abq?

The plot needed him to be there to see Chuck hit his head.

His grandkid looks older in this prequel than in the later years of Breaking Bad. Coffee is believed to stunt growth.

Now THIS was one hell of a great episode. Can't wait to see how the season finishes.

I really wish they'd give the show a 12 or 13-episode season like they did for Breaking Bad.

It was a setup for the double entendre/implied sexual innuendo from the waitress toward Mike.

Made him raise his eyebrows & the corners of his mouth turn up after Fran left his table. For Mike, that's a pretty big reaction.
