And if it was anyone but Chuck, he would have.
On the contrary. I think the way Chuck had been so overtly against Jimmy in his legal pursuits as well as the slow cut of Jimmy from his life, Chuck would be suspected even more. To that end, Chuck is probably most responsible for the forthcoming transformation and how Saul will behave. The way a family member can destroy Jimmy this way will keep Saul's head on a constant swivel.
I was more referring to the fact that love blinds. Jimmy is so desperate for Chuck's approval that he has a blind spot when it comes to him. I would imagine Jimmy would've sensed that Chuck was behind his blackballing from HHM that we learned about in season one long before he actually found out if it didn't involve his brother.
I can see that, but I also though that when Jimmy made the conscience effort to self-sabotage his Davis & Main job and changed the date in the Mesa Verde filings, he was starting to see Chuck for what he really is.
Probably. He is still obviously desperate for Chuck's approval and still loves him like a brother. Like he said when admitting guilt in last year's season finale, he didn't think it would be that big of a deal to Chuck when he altered the Mesa Verda paperwork; he thought Chuck would shrug it off after a few days and move on. I don't know if he would've done it if he knew the kind of affect it would have on Chuck.
Maybe Jimmy thought a shrug off was possible, but that puts us back to the blind spot thing. How could you possibly think someone with a psychosomatic allergy to electricity could shrug off anything?! Both brothers play a direct causal role in the other's demise and both are stubbornly in denial about this casual role AND blindly in denial or even oblivious in how they are causing each other to circle down the toilet.
Still a great line.
Ep #3 was great, really moved things forward. We are essentially there with Jimmy v Chuck and Chuck endgame of trying to get Jimmy disbarred. Only thing left between here and it'sssss allllll Good man is how Kim gives up the ghost of Jimmy McGill.
And Mike met Gus and operation put Hector down began.
Besides all that, the ending shot with Jimmy and Kim as shadows in front of a yellow background was cinematography that even a novice like me couldn't help but be admire.
Agree. Thought this was one of the better episodes this season.
My gut tells me that this will end badly for Chuck (which would be poetic justice) as the entire thing was a setup and there is sufficient evidence of this.
Ernie (who he always condescendingly referred to as Ernesto) getting fired may blow up in Chuck's face.
I imagine we also will get more of the back story behind Chuck's failed marriage and subsequent illness.
Agree on Chuck's backstory, I think the divorce to electro-phobia story is going to be really interesting.
But on Chuck's finally outcome I'm torn as Jimmy told Chuck he's dead to him, but in his heart he doesn't mean it. Yet at same time Jimmy's best revenge is to have Chuck sitting near comatose in a chair ringing a cowbell but reading headlines every day about Slippin' Jimmy's latest 'criminal' lawyer adventures. And based on Breaking Bad these guys always surprise me with how characters twist, turn & escape from seemingly impossible traps.
But its really sad that two brothers are so screwed b/c of each other.
That moment in court where Jimmy starts to mutter "Sorry I didn't call you on the phone; I thought I'd tell you in person..." to Kim, and the court transcriber catches and records it, will definitely come to be a pivotal moment. They're planting seeds, along with that Navy(?) Captain(?).
