While you kind of totally see the Slippin' Jimmy scam coming, this one not so much, considering it's set up for over half of an episode titled "Hero." You kind of, mistakenly, think Saul's going to actually do something heroic.
Back at his office he has seven new messages on the voicemail we've seen him periodically check throughout the season, and suddenly, the rock he's building his church on seems pretty stable. And, much like the church, as corrupt as ever.
The final scene features a solid five minutes of Saul's brother Chuck, during which time you kind of secretly wish someone would accidentally light him on fire, but no, he's sadly totally fire free. Saul doesn't tell him about the rescue, he also doesn't give him his local paper, so Chuck, realizing something is up with the missing paper and the new client prospects for Jimmy, runs across the street into electromagnetism land (ahhHHHHhHhHhhhhHHHHH!), snags a paper, finds the story on his brother, and continues to be the most annoying character in the history of AMC programming.

Grant Marek is a Senior Editor at Thrillist and he really, really thinks Vince Gilligan should consider writing Badger into episode five, assuming he isn't already in it. Wait... is he??? Tell Grant how much Chuck annoys you, too, on Twitter at @grant_marek.
