"Better Call Saul" Season 5 "Namaste": Saul Learns If You Hold It Too Long, You Get "Kidney Stone'd" [PREVIEW]

Last week's episode of AMC's Better Call Saul proved that being known as "The Guy For This" isn't always a good thing – as Jimmy/Saul (Bob Odenkirk) learned the hard way after Nacho's (Michael Mando) road trip lead him to Lalo (Tony Dalton) – and to the news that he was now Krazy-8's (Max Arciniega) new "criminal" lawyer. But what was bad for Jimmy was great for Breaking Bad fans – because that meant the return of DEA agents Hank Schrader (Dean Norris) and Steven Gomez (Steven Michael Quezada).

Meanwhile, Nacho finds himself in the dog house with his dad, Gus (Giancarlo Esposito) has to take a couple of bites from the proverbial "sh*t sandwich", Mike (Jonathan Banks) tries to level himself , and Kim (Rhea Seehorn) learns no good deed goes unpunished.
