Better Call Saul - S3E5

#1 - Chicanery (Season 3 - Episode 5)


In the episode "Chicanery" of the show Better Call Saul, Kim and Jimmy face off against an adversary as Jimmy looks to Chuck's past to secure his future. Jimmy loses an ally and gains another. The episode is a masterclass in tension, character, and storytelling, as it takes the audience on a rollercoaster of emotions. The episode opens with a flashback to a time when Jimmy and Chuck were using their scheming in concert rather than against one another. Through this scene, we get a glimpse of Chuck's prideful nature and his need to mask his frustrations with notions of propriety and principles.

The episode then moves on to the courtroom drama, where Kim Wexler is fierce in her defense and earns the respect of her client, while Howard, who is usually a cipher, is honest on the stand and complimentary about Jimmy when he doesn't have to be. This sets up the epic showdown between Jimmy and Chuck, where Jimmy resorts to some "chicanery" in order to show Chuck's mental instability to the disciplinary board. Jimmy shows pictures from Chuck's home, gestures to Rebecca in the audience, and even gets an emotional apology from Chuck to her. He then takes out a cell phone, expecting a reaction from Chuck, but it is Chuck who realizes that the phone is without a battery. Jimmy then pulls out the surprise element of his trick - the battery that had been hidden in Chuck's breast pocket. This sets Chuck off in a deranged rant, exposing him as mentally ill. The episode ends with a far shot of Chuck, seeming so small and defeated, as the buzz of the exit sign looms large next to him. This is Chuck's Waterloo, the terrible culmination of two brothers' issues with one another, laid bare in a court of law.

The episode was rated 8.30 from 6871 votes.
