"Better Call Saul" Season 5 "The Guy For This": Jimmy Sees Danger Through Saul's Eyes [PREVIEW]

Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould's Better Call Saul wasted no time putting its players into any number of morally and legally questionable situations (check out our reviews of "Magic Man" and "50% Off" here and here). Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) legally became Saul Goodman and then took him out for a courtroom test run (while in a flash-forward, Gene was forced to become Saul… but is this just a one-time deal?).

Meanwhile, Kim (Rhea Seehorn) continued distancing herself from Jimmy's as he goes through his Saul metamorphosis – while at the same time, showing just how easily she's seduced by Saul's way of getting things done. Lalo (Tony Dalton) and Gus' (Giancarlo Esposito) "cold war" is starting to heat up – with Nacho (Michael Mando) proving himself to Lalo after some "motivation" from Gus. Mike (Mike Ehrmantraut) continues to spiral – and you know it's bad when he takes it out on family.

Which brings us to the following clip (and preview images) from next episode, "The Guy For This" – which finds Jimmy/Saul riding in the backseat of Nacho's car and beginning to appreciate the direness of his situation:

"Better Call Saul" season 5, episode 3 "The Guy for This": Jimmy's business enters uncharted territory. Kim's confidence is tested when she's faced with a legal problem only she can solve. Nacho navigates increased pressure from Gus. Mike continues to spiral. Written by Ann Cherkis, and directed by Michael Morris.
