I think he dies too and I think that Jimmy is going to feel very guilty about it and this is going to push him further like you said into becoming Saul.

Maybe, maybe not. We know virtually nothing about Jimmy's personal life between now and the entire course of the BB timeline. For all we know Chuck could be a semi-vegetable during BB. We only really know what Jimmy was up to while he was on the clock, being a crooked lawyer. Maybe he's spoon-feeding baby food to Chuck on his off hours.

I do remember that he delivers money to Jesse Pinkman's ex girlfriend, and he talks to her young son and makes some jokes about avoiding women when he grows up because, I dunno, something about how they'll rip your heart out and destroy your life. I haven't seen that since it aired, so the details are a little foggy. Anyway, that could tie in well with Jimmy's presumed relationship crash and burn.

Another great episode. Was it Andrea that Saul delivered money too? I remember that scene too. Will be interesting to see what Jimmy does in relation to phoning 911, rushing over or doing nothing to help his brother.

I did read this too.
With Breaking Bad baddie faves Hector and Tuco Salamanca grab plenty of screen time this season, Gilligan remained mum about the return of future characters from the Emmy-winning series.

Said Gilligan, “We come to realize that from the Breaking Bad universe, anyone (returning) is fair game. That’s where I have to leave it.”

I think Chuck survives. But I think Jimmy not being there for him to cover up his own scam is really going to weigh on him heavily.

I think this is all leading to Chuck suing him, and the terms of Chuck agreeing to drop the suit will basically be that Jimmy can't practice law under the name McGill.

Then, and only then, will Saul Goodman be born. When his own brother legally prevents him from being himself.

Then he cuts ties with Chuck and his own name.

OR, maybe Chuck does die, leaves Jimmy nothing, and the partners use his fortune to sue Jimmy and prevent him from using the name McGill.

Either way, I see lawyers being involved in the name change.

What a jerk Chuck is.

Do ya reckon Mike's gangster mate was blocking Salamanco on purpose?

Gus? Hmm, could be!

I've never liked Chuck. He just epitomises the older sibling with a me me me attitude. Also completely evident form the part when their mum was dying.

When's the third series due?!

Theories that the note was written by Fring, or at the very least one of his associates, were exacerbated by the discovery that the first letter of each of the ten-episode titles in “Saul’s” second season are an anagram for “FRING’S BACK.” That’s no coincidence.

How fucking cool was episode 4. I guess we'll get to find out what Fring does to Don Hector at some stage. Maybe he uses Mike? Personally I think it'll be him.

Surely it has to be some horrendous torture/accident.

Remember you guys that in BB season 4 Hector shot is partner from back in the day, and they didn't kill him because of who he was in Chile
