‘Better Call Saul’ Season 1, Episode 9: ‘Pimento’
Better Call Saul season 1, episode 9 airs tonight on AMC.
Chuck urges Jimmy to accept a harsh truth. Meanwhile, a deal threatens to go off the rails when Mike’s ability to complete a job is called into question.
Better Call Saul is the prequel to the award-winning series Breaking Bad, set six years before Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) became Walter White’s lawyer. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and often against, Jimmy is “fixer” Mike Erhmantraut (Jonathan Banks), a beloved character introduced in Breaking Bad. The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts “criminal” in “criminal lawyer.”
Better Call Saul season 1, episode 9 airs March 30 at 10 p.m. EDT on AMC.
