And Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) hasn’t even returned yet! More on that later.

Once again, the season opened up in black and white with “Gene” (Jimmy’s new alias) working at Cinnabon. Look at him try to go unnoticed by cops pursuing a shoplifter, buried in his book and sandwich. Even though he points the cop to the shoplifter’s hiding spot, he can’t help giving the shoplifter legal advice: “Say nothing. Get a lawyer.”
Gene… your Saul is showing #BetterCallSaul

Back to where season 2 left off: Chuck secretly taped Jimmy’s confession to altering the Mesa Verde files. Chuck promises Jimmy, “Don’t think I’ll ever forget what happened here today. And you will pay.”
He plays the tape for Howard (Patrick Fabien), and they discuss the legalities of its admissibility. What exactly is Chuck planning?
Chuck is trying to put his plan for revenge into motion and Howard isn't buyin' it!#BetterCallSaul

More importantly, could whatever Chuck is plotting against Jimmy backfire on Chuck himself?
But can Howard turn on Chuck and use the tape to get Chuck kicked out of the firm for being cray cray? A change of heart? #BetterCallSaul

Chuck is the poor man's Jimmy, not nearly as sneaky. Whatever he's planning will come back to bite him #BetterCallSaul

Oh yeah, there’s also where we left off with Mike. He aborted his plans to assassinate Hector Salamanca (Mark Margolis), and returned to his car to see a warning note reading “Don’t.” Suspecting a tracker, Mike hoisted the car on a forklift. And has he been here before?
same junkyard as the one in breaking bad???? hmmm #BetterCallSaul

That wasn’t the end of Mike’s search.
Remember when cars had full frames and could be lifted like that without damaging them? #BetterCallSaul

Surprising to see Mike panic this much. #BetterCallSaul

Oh, remember Captain Bauer (Brendan Fehr), who allowed Jimmy onto the military base? Well, he saw the commercial Jimmy filmed there and now he threatens legal charges. Jimmy calls his bluff when Bauer asks him to pull the ad.
"Make me" Saul is coming out #BetterCallSaul

Chuck’s blackmail tape already hit a snag when his assistant Ernesto (Brandon K. Hampton) heard a portion of the tape. He was changing the batteries for Chuck and then the part about changing the address came on. But would Ernesto even know what that means out of context?
— J james (@JBowerz) April 11, 2017
He just put Ernesto in a HORRIBLE position. #BetterCallSaul
— Patchette (@RealPatchette) April 11, 2017
You know, Ernesto just wants to help people. Now he's got a conflict of interest protecting 2 self-destructive bros. #BetterCallSaul

Kim (Rhea Seehorn) this week was focusing on clients, clients she took over when Jimmy no-showed on his appointments. She spent a lot of time obsessing over punctuation in a brief.
Never has a semicolon given me so much anxiety. #bettercallsaul
— Erica Hind (@carebearica) April 11, 2017
This scene of Kim choosing between period, semi-colon and em dash = actual hours of my life. #BetterCallSaul

I like Kim Wexler even better now that I know she obsesses over punctuation too.#BetterCallSaul

Finally, Mike is gonna catch whoever was tailing him. He put a tracker in the tracker and off he goes to follow him. If Mike can catch this guy, he can definitely catch Hank later on Breaking Bad.
In retrospect, Hank played a really lazy GPS tracker game. #BetterCallSaul
— JessSaying (@Sleepy_Viking) April 11, 2017
I too could eat a bag of pistachios…while waiting for the drug dealers to realize I swapped the GPS tracker on my car. #BetterCallSaul

Next week promises Gus Fring and Los Pollos Hermanos.
I've gone through all the stages of grief about Gus not showing up, with 4 minutes left I've arrived at acceptance #BetterCallSaul
