‘Better Call Saul’ season 2, episode 4 preview: When Jimmy wins, he loses
On tonight’s new episode of “Better Call Saul,” Jimmy McGill executed what he thought was a pretty perfect plan to create a commercial for Davis & Main that would bring them potentially hundreds of new clients in the case they are building against Sandpiper. They know that they need some sort of an army to take down the nursing home giant, and this was a step in the right direction for that.
However, at the same time the execution of said commercial may lead to the end of his employment not long after it began. The preview below for next week’s new episode teases a stand-off with Jimmy and the firm’s bosses, one where there is a majority vote at present to fire him with cause for making and airing the ad without the authorization of the main partners of the firm. Jimmy’s claims about it being client outreach are not going to fly here.
Meanwhile, these actions could in turn lead to the end of his relationship with Kim, which was already on thin ice in the first place. She cares about him, but at the same time, there are only so many times that she can be lied to. He blatantly lied to her face about the reaction to the commercial, and that’s going to be found out sooner rather than later.
