AMC’s Better Call Saul Episode 1.6 “Five-O” aired Monday night and it was all about Mike and his mysterious past and how it’s come back to haunt him in the present. Aside from Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), who becomes Mike’s lawyer, the rest of the cast of characters is absent. Instead, we see Mike’s daughter-in-law and granddaughter, as well as cops from the Philly Police Department, who are investigating a murder of two of their own.
The network has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which involves Jimmy doing his lawyer thing for Mike in a situation that once again sets us up for Saul Goodman, the persona Jimmy takes on in Breaking Bad. AMC has also released a behind-the-scenes featurette that’s a 3 1/2-minute “Inside Look” at the episode which goes into detail about Mike’s past and his situation and how the people in his life are responding to it.

Mike’s tragic past comes back to haunt him, and he’s forced to seek help from an unusual source. Jimmy’s moral compass is put to the test.
The first season of Better Call Saul will run for 10 episodes and stars Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy McGill (Saul); Jonathan Banks reprising his Breaking Bad role as Mike Ehrmantraut, seen here as a parking lot clerk who will become Jimmy’s ally; Michael McKean as Chuck McGill, Jimmy’s brother, who’s medical and/or psychological illness appears to be getting worse; Rhea Seehorn from TV sitcom Whitney as Kim Wexler, Jimmy’s love interest or possibly just close friend, it’s too hard to tell at this point; and Patrick Fabian as Howard Hamlin, Chuck’s law firm partner and Jimmy’s nemesis, who continues to butt heads.
