  • Did you jump out of your seat like our blog contributor, Aidan, upon seeing the death of Howard Hamlin?

  • According to the Better Call Saul Insider Podcast, they used an actual truck stop, on location (not a closed/fabricated set) for Eduardo "Lalo" Salamanca's opening scene.
  • Also revealed on the Insider podcast, is that the sewer set was actually the oil tanker from episode 6x03, Rock and Hard Place, where Ignacio "Nacho" Varga hid from The Salamanca Cousins: Marco & Leonel.

  • Each member of the Salamanca family is incredibly different, yet incredibly insane. Lalo is the calmest, but one of the craziest: which not only contrasts with the rest of his family, but also with Gustavo Fring.

  • Rachael sometimes loves when the opening sequence has no dialogue, which allows our minds to race with both anticipation and questions that remain unanswered until later on in the episode.

  • At the beginning of the episode, Lenny (the actor who plays Rand Casimiro in Kim & Jimmy's schemes) is running lines from a play called Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches by Tony Kushner.

  • The reason Lenny finally agreed to get into Jimmy's car wasn't because of the money, but the joy of acting, which mirrors the reason Kim Wexler & Jimmy McGill execute their scams/cons: they get off on it.

  • That actors who play Jimmy's film student TV Commercial & Photography producers - Josh Fadem, Hayley Holmes, and Julian Bonfiglio, respectively - inhabit characters who don't officially have names on the show.

  • Every character thought they were in control, but quickly realize they did not. Lalo realizes the phones are tapped while calling his uncle, Hector Salamanca. Gus thought getting Hector out of his way would allow him to move up, yet Lalo becomes a major obstacle. Howard spins out of control during the Sandpiper meeting, even with the knowledge that Jimmy (and possibly Kim) were in the process of scamming him. Kim & Jimmy lose all control the moment Lalo steps foot in their apartment.
  • Howard's storyline mimics that of Chuck McGill, during episode 3x05, Chicanery. Jimmy & Kim placed both men in humiliating situations in front of their colleagues by making them look insane, which eventually leads both to their demise.

  • Most characters on the show are used to being in control in some form or fashion. The only person who never seemed like he was in control was Nacho, who finally grasped the reins when he decided to take his own life.

  • When Howard's intern, Cary Anderson, drops the soda cans, Howard takes the opportunity to show him a trick Chuck taught him to prevent the sodas from exploding when attempting to open them. Aidan tried this trick at home and it actually worked.

  • Is the show trying to warn us about the futility of building a legacy for people you'll never meet? Chuck built his legacy, but spent the last years of his life in misery.

  • More Chicanery: Chuck and Howard both used the phrase, I'm not crazy, which is exactly what Jimmy wanted their colleagues to believe. They both immediately accused Jimmy of tampering with or manipulating evidence. And yet, Howard brought over a bottle of Macallan to both brothers McGill when both schemes were through.
  • When Sherrandy loses power, the rest of our hosts get antsy and perform their own telenovela!

  • We were so happy to see Irene Landry! Also known as Irene Legendry (get it?).

  • Bridget read The Hollywood Reporter's interview with Patrick Fabian, wherein he explained how early it was revealed to him that Howard would be dying, but didn't know when/how, while keeping it a secret from both Bob Odenkirk (Jimmy) & Rhea Seehorn (Kim), whom he was living with during filming.
