Warning – Spoilers for Better Call Saul Episode 1.7 “Bingo.”
AMC’s Better Call Saul Episode 1.7 “Bingo” aired Monday night and it brought the Kettlemans back to Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), who must decide whether he wants to be their lawyer now that they’ve fired his rival’s law firm. It should be a triumphant moment for Jimmy, who was nearly killed earlier in the season when his scheme to attract their business backfired and he came face-to-face for the first time with the crazed thug Tuco Salamanca. But, instead of gloating, Jimmy has no interest in taking on their embezzlement case, but the Kettlemans have something to hold over Jimmy, which makes him reassess the entire situation.
The network has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which sees Jimmy arrive at the Kettleman home to talk to them about his decision whether to represent them. AMC has also released a behind-the-scenes featurette that’s a 4-minute “Inside Look” at the episode which touches upon a lot of elements, like Jimmy and Kim’s relationship; Jimmy’s new office; Kim’s failure with the Kettlemans; Jimmy’s brother Chuck’s progress; Mike and Jimmy’s growing teamwork; and all the trouble that the Kettlemans are.
