“Breaking Bad’s” fourth season has already turned “Get back to work!” into a catchphrase and revealed why throwing a house party is not the best way to deal with the guilt that stems from committing your first murder. There was only one ingredient that was missing: Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), Walt’s (Bryan Cranston) hilariously shady lawyer. This Sunday, in the episode “Open House,” Saul is back, in a big way.
In the previous episode, Skyler (Anna Gunn’s) failed at her attempts to buy the car wash where Walt used to work before he discovered that manufacturing meth was far more lucrative. The owner had no interest in selling, and made it clear that he would only part with the business he spent years building if Skyler paid far more than it was worth. This week, she and Walt realize they Better Call Saul. They come up with a plan to persuade the owner to sell. Check out this clip for a preview of Saul in action, including a masterful joke about professionalism.
In other action, according to AMC’s website, “Events spiral out of control at Jesse’s place. Skyler reluctantly asks for Saul’s help. Marie returns to an old pastime and a friend asks Hank for help.” Is Marie (Betsy Brandt) going to shoplift again? How much more out of control can things get at Jesse’s (Aaron Paul) house? Does Hank’s (Dean Norris) friend need information about buying geodes on-line? Tune in Sunday for the answers to these questions and much, much more.
