What’s it about
Tired of public defender work, Jimmy works to represent Craig Kettleman, who is accused of embezzlement. Jimmy cares for his brother Chuck, who is housebound with a psychosomatic aversion to electricity. While pursuing elder law and estate planning cases, Jimmy discovers several seniors being defrauded by the Sandpiper retirement community. As the class action law suit grows, Chuck suggests giving it to his law firm, Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill. Hoping to become a partner at HHM, Jimmy is devastated when he is well compensated, yet shunned, via his brother’s lack of trust. The case is transferred to a second firm, Davis & Main, one experienced with the complexities of such class-action suits. After the death of a close friend, Jimmy seems to find the legitimate success he craves when D&M offers him a position.
Hired by D&M, Jimmy quits after his creative, ostentatious legal style doesn’t quite mesh with their calm corporate demeanor. Kim is demoted because of Jimmy’s actions. She secures Mesa Verde Bank as an HHM client, but Howard marginalizes her accomplishment. Kim quits HHM and opens a private practice in an office-space shared with Jimmy. Jimmy surreptitiously creates a clerical error to discredit Chuck and delay a new MVB branch construction; MVB drops HHM and hires Kim’s fledgling firm. Nacho, a Mexican drug cartel lieutenant, hires Mike Ehrmantraut to remove their volatile captain, Tuco Salamanca. Tuco is entrapped and imprisoned, rather than executed by Mike. Cartel elder Hector Salamanca grows suspicious and confronts Mike, who later attempts to assassinate Hector, but is mysteriously interrupted.
Chuck discovers Jimmy’s fraud and tricks him into confessing, leading to suspension of Jimmy’s law license. Gus stops Mike from killing Hector. Mike attacks Hector’s trucks and steals $250,000 from one. Mike asks for help laundering the money. Gus arranges for Mike’s hire as a contracted security expert at Madrigal and payment of monthly consulting fees. Hector plans to take over Manuel’s business so Nacho attempts to kill Hector by changing his angina medication for a placebo. Hector suffers a stroke and Gus’ first aid saves him, though he remains comatose. Chuck’s ouster at HHM leads to his suicide.
Jimmy regains his outgoing demeanor after Howard shoulders blame for Chuck’s death. Jimmy manages a cell phone store but makes more reselling prepaid phones to low-level criminals. His law license reinstatement request is denied over lack of remorse for Chuck. After faking mourning, he successfully appeals, but reveals he is going to practice as Saul Goodman. Gus learns Nacho attempted to kill Hector and blackmails him into undermining the Salamancas. Mike escorts engineers who evaluate the laundry’s potential as a meth lab and Gus hires Werner to oversee construction. Hector recovers mentally and can move his right index finger. Lalo Salamanca arrives to run Hector’s business.
Jimmy’s new business as Saul Goodman draws him into the drug trade within the city of Albuquerque, and is conflicted when Howard, to make up for his past treatment of Jimmy, offers him a position at HHM. Kim herself balances her Mesa Verde and pro bono work with her own feelings for Jimmy, and finds herself toying with the same conman-style tactics Jimmy employs within her casework. Lalo’s presence forces Gus to halt the superlab construction, and both Nacho and Mike become pawns in the ongoing feud between the Salamancas and Gus. After Lalo is arrested for murder, he requests that Jimmy represent him and arrange bail, which nearly leads to Jimmy’s demise.
