With just one episode left to go for the season 1 finale of Better Call Saul, stakes are getting high for Jimmy McGill as his brother wants him to accept some harsh truth.
Episode 9 is titled, Pimento, which will air this Monday, 30 March, at 10 pm on AMC.
According to the official synopsis, "Chuck wants Jimmy to accept a harsh truth. And Mike's ability to complete a job is questioned."
In episode 8, Jimmy and his brother investigate the nursing home of several of the lawyers's clients for fraud, and manage to win the case, while Mike Ehrmantraut spends the day with his granddaughter.
Jonathan Banks, who plays Ehrmantraut, has teased that there will be some funny incidents involving his character in the upcoming episode. Banks hinted at some scene involving pimento cheese that will add some comic element to his otherwise serious character.
He told Entertainment Weekly: "Well, you're gonna have a lot of fun in one of them with Mike. It'll be a little lighter, but it'll be a lot of fun. They wrote a scene for me that just cracks me up that I love. I will give you a spoiler—it has something to do with pimento cheese."
Speaking at a panel discussion for the penultimate episode Pimento this week, co-creator Vince Gilligan stressed that they are probably going to make some mistakes in connecting the canon of the original show to Breaking Bad, Deadline reported.
"We will make mistakes, no doubt about that, but we intend not to, we intend to make as small a number of mistakes as possible.... Instead of us saying 'Yeeeah, we have a vague memory of this happening, but we like this thing better so we won't abide by some offhanded comment or some bit of plot that we had back in Breaking Bad," Gilligan explained.
He added, "We got something better, let's just go with that and hope people squint their eyes at it.' We wanna be as accurate as possible."
