Better Call Saul Season 5 Episode 9 Spoilers:
The episode picks up from where ‘Bagman’ leaves off. We see Mike and Saul making their way back. However, he still has to ensure that Lalo’s money reaches the bail bondsman so that Lalo can get out of prison. Nacho seems to believe that the end of his problems is near.
Saul tries to reacclimatize to court, but his frenemy, ADA Bill Oakley, notices the difference. Not only does Saul’s tan (from being out in the desert sun) stand out, but his demeanor in court seems to be different too. Perhaps, he crosses some lines, which leads Bill to remark that Saul might have to change his name again.
Meanwhile, as Gus and Mike put some plans in motion, it appears that Lalo won’t be a problem for much longer. As for Kim, she takes a closed-door meeting with Rich, perhaps discussing her future at the firm, and what is important to her. Undoubtedly, the upcoming episode will show the character arcs progressing, and will set the narrative up in a way that the season finale, the week after Episode 9, leaves us wanting more.
