Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) finally made his entrance in AMC’s “Better Call Saul” Season 3. Episode 2 saw Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) help Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) find out the identity of the person tracking him. It took him to Los Pollos Hermanos, a fast-food chain of restaurants that is a front for Gus' laundered money.
Unfortunately, things aren’t looking good for Jimmy at the moment. When his girlfriend Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) told him that his brother Chuck (Michael McKean) has a recording of him committing a crime, he felt betrayed. An angry and hurt Jimmy stormed inside Chuck’s house and destroyed the recording only to find that a private detective and Howard (Patrick Fabian) witnessed the whole thing.
Chuck now has two witnesses to agree to his statement that his younger brother threatened him and destroyed evidence which proved that he committed a crime.
What will happen next on “Better Call Saul”?
Earlier, AMC released Season 3 photos of the award-winning series that showed Jimmy in an orange jumpsuit. “Saul” creator Vince Gilligan confirmed that he is going to jail in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “It looks like what’s going to happen next is going to involve the authorities, for sure.” He teased, “Jimmy is in deep doo-doo. Jimmy is entering a world of pain as Walter Sobchak would say in ‘The Big Lebowski.’”
While Saul Goodman is in a lot of trouble in episode 3, titled “Sunk Costs,” Mike’s life is about to change. He is going to meet Gus – the man who was tracking him till the former cop got wind of his plan. Esposito told EW, “He could squash Mike like a bug. But he understands also that Mike’s loyalty and Mike’s shrewdness in what he does is going to be valuable, and he would make a guy like that partner.”
The synopsis of episode 3 reads, “Jimmy decides to represent a new client, much to Kim’s dismay. Meanwhile, Mike meets a formidable ally who presents an enticing offer.”
The preview reveals who Jimmy will be representing: Himself.
“Better Call Saul” Season 3 airs Mondays at 10 p.m. EDT on AMC.
