“Fifi” may very well be the most ridiculous name we’ve seen for a “Better Call Saul” episode in quite some time, but after wactually watching the episode, it does at least make some sense and there is a historical perspective at least behind the move.
As for the episode itself, it was a little bit of a mixed bag. We got a chance to learn a few things in regards to the whole story of Jimmy McGill and Kim Wexler, as he was desperate to have her come and work with him to the point that he found them a nice place to do business: A dentist’s office. He also decided to seek out some methods of sabotage when he learned what Chuck was willing to do in order to ensure that HHM kept them aboard as a client … which, suffice it to say, he was not pleased with and wanted some revenge over.
This was unfortunately another light episode on Mike Ehrmantraut, which is really not something that we cared for since it is time for his whole journey with Tio to really start to amount to something big. Specifically, we want to see him really push forward in a direction that is a little more proactive, and not so much planning … even if it makes sense for the character.
For this latest edition in our show podcast we are of course joined by Jason Prager, who is in many ways our “Better Call Saul” and “Breaking Bad” expert. He’ll, of course, have plenty of insight and other assorted references.
