I'm mostly with you on this. Season 2 was focused on a few points that were mostly wrapped up (along with leaving exciting things for the future) while this ending was sort of all over the place. Maybe that's just where these characters are at this point?
I was hoping to see some more resolution with Nacho, Hector, and Gus; I guess with the pace we can still wait a bit more. Mike too is kind of lurking the shadows at this point, yes?
What I like most about this show still stems mostly, I think, from its ability to create some morally complicated (maybe not too complicated) situations. For me this deals with sympathy for the characters. Plenty of times you could sympathize with Jimmy, Chuck, or vice versa. In this particular episode I think they handled Chuck's relations with HHM with the same level of seeing why each party had a point. I kind of sided with HHM for once. The kind of moral stickiness I'm talking about was epitomized by Jimmy's sort of self-sacrifice elderly yoga session too.
The ending of the episode referred to as haunting above does seem to say thinks might pick up sooner. Jimmy has now lost his clientele, and a few episodes back he saw how quickly drug dealers pay. My guess is by the end of next season all the players are together in some way.
Two unrelated questions I put out to the fans: any suggestion they will eventually focus on Saul's life in Nebraska? Have the creators hinted at a longer form with this?
Is the woman who plays the secretary for Kim and Jimmie the same who was Saul's secretary in Breaking Bad?
edit: Jimmy, not Jimmie as written above. I've been really off my game lately.
