After the gut-wrenching final scene of Monday’s Better Call Saul, fans are wondering what the future holds for Jimmy McGill. A sneak peek from the upcoming episode, “Sunk Costs,” gives us a glimpse at the immediate fallout of Chuck’s latest betrayal. Frankly, I don’t think we’ve ever seen Jimmy McGill look this beaten down and dejected.
With Chuck’s plan a success, and a trip to jail likely, Jimmy’s first move is to call the office. After Francesca picks up, Jimmy tells her to move all of tomorrow’s clients and to tell Kim he won’t be back. Francesca ends the call with “have a great night,” to which Jimmy can only reply, “hm.” The remainder of the scene is Jimmy’s slow walk to enjoy a curb side cigarette.
-This is the first time we’ve seen Jimmy McGill (or Saul Goodman) with no fight in him. Overall, it’s odd to see from a character who constantly exudes confidence and cunning.
-While on the phone, we see Jimmy take a long glance at his matchbook. The advertisement on it is for “LBI Bail Bonds.” Perhaps, this confirms our theory on why Jimmy is freed from custody in photos for “Sunk Costs.” It also disproves our theory that Kim is the one to bail him out. Can’t win em all.
-Finally, the clip lingers on someone leaving Chuck’s home. I’m fairly certain that it’s the man Chuck hired to act as a witness, but the shadows make confirmation of this impossible. However, with it definitely not being Howard or Chuck, I feel pretty safe assuming.Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) and Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) in Episode 3 Photo by Michele K.
