S4E1 – “Smoke”

Cameo-ish: While we didn’t see any new faces from the world of Breaking Bad pop up, per se, we did get an undeniable glimpse of one Saul Goodman at the conclusion of the episode.

The Story: After Chuck’s funeral, Howard (Patrick Fabian) sits down for a drink with Kim (Rhea Seehorn) and Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk). It’s an odd scene as Jimmy – Chuck’s one and only living relative – isn’t really grieving in a traditional way. In fact, he doesn’t seem to be grieving at all. However, Howard has something he needs to get off his chest – and it’s not that dazzling collar pin. He lets both Jimmy and Kim know that he was the one who pressured Chuck to retire after a snafu with the insurance company. Howard is clearly wracked with guilt over his actions, and his poor, well-meaning face crumples with despair as he recounts the story.

Little does Howard know that Jimmy is the one who orchestrated the insurance issue in the first place. But instead of coming clean, Jimmy decides to double down on Howard’s pain, simply stating, “That’s your cross to bear.” He gets up from the couch, abruptly ending the conversation with an offer of coffee. That cold, unfeeling, and dismissive behavior is certainly a nugget of what’s to come when Jimmy finally morphs fully into the infamous Saul Goodman.
