Better Call Saul Season 5 saw Jimmy fully embrace as Saul Goodman, but also collected tips from impossible sources, including Hank who returned.
Jimmy McGill’s legal approach to Better Call Saul was unintentionally influenced by Breaking Bad by Hank Schrader. With the Better Call season 5 part-time pause, Jimmy Saul lived a rather double life.
At home is lawyer partner Kim Wexler, who throws a beer bottle, brushes his teeth and seems to only have dinner. However, during his work hours, Jimmy became Saul Goodman. While Jimmy’s personality was always driven by a desire to limit the rules, the death of his brother and Jimmy’s son had triggered Saul’s true birth, and now the character of The Wrecking Bad officially became a lawyer in New Mexico.
Each season Better Call Saul brings many celebrities, and no doubt the most important thing in season 5 is the return of Dean Norris to the role of Hank Schrader.
Special Agent DEA Hank (and his partner Gomez) debuted for Better Call Saul in “The Guy For This” when they interviewed Krazy-8, who had just closed. Although the drug separator duo (maybe), Saul was designed by Krazy-8 boss Lalo Salamanca to provide information that would help bring down his rival Gus Fring.
To further complicate the network dramatically, Fringe has been notified of Lilo’s plans and is currently making contingent obligations. In both cases, Hank and Gomez interrogated Krazy-8 with Jimmy as a lawyer and tried to turn him into an informant.
The purpose of the scene in last week’s Better Call Saul episode is to show Jimmy and Kraz-8 how to manipulate the two DEA agents, but it seems like Hank and Gomez have a “criminal lawyer” more impressed than Jimmy expected.
In The Guy for It, Hank pretends that his offer to work with Krazi-8 for an easier sentence is so good that he is offended when the convict and legal representative try to negotiate the terms. Hank was disgusted and was leaving. He even knocked on the door to attract a security guard.
The bet was successful and Krazy-8 ended quickly. Namaste this week, Saul drew the same trick of two drug addicts who committed a “50% discount” crime. After hearing their payment, the two considered getting free legal advice instead of hiring Jimmy.
The lawyer acted because the $ 4,000 offer was a personal favor, taking him down from the table, going to the door, and calling the guard, as Hank had done before. This tactic quickly convinced customers to review and accept Jimmy’s requirements.
It was interesting to see Jimmy receiving a direct signal from Hank about Better Call Saul. Although the two did not collide as much as the other Breaking Bad couples, they competed with each other in several verbal sparrings at the interview table, especially when Jimmy represented Mike.
These legitimate enemies show very little tolerance for each other and of course, there is no love lost between them. So it was very interesting to see Jimmy pull out a sheet of Hank’s book after his first meeting. Although this shows that Jimmy values Hank more than in Breaking Bad, the double survey technique may show Jimmy’s cunning and adaptability.
Previously, in his legal career, Jimmy primarily defended clients from violations and fraud, as well as a brief specialization in senior law. Like Saul Goodman, Jimmy suddenly found himself opposing hard-nosed and experienced federal agents and tried to hide them at the request of the great local drug authorities.
At this point, most will come out of their depths, but since the start of Better Call, Saul Jimmy has shown remarkable progress, and his imitation of Hank is an example of a killer instinct that guides Jimmy through all kinds of scratches and dangers.
