Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould's Better Call Saul started off its fifth and penultimate season like a rocket, with Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) becoming Saul Goodman – in both the past and present. Kim (Rhea Seehorn) continues finding herself repulsed by Saul – while attracted to his barely legal way of getting things done. Lalo (Tony Dalton) and Gus' (Giancarlo Esposito) battle of wills continued – while Mike (Mike Ehrmantraut) lost his cool in a very bad way and Nacho (Michael Mando) proved himself to Lalo… but can he do the same for Gus?
