The trials and tribulations of criminal lawyer, Jimmy McGill, in the time leading up to establishing his strip-mall law office in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The undulating line of an electrocardiogram trickles across the screen. Jimmy McGill sits watch over a supine body wrapped in a white sheet. “Klick,” the 10th and finale episode of Better Call Saul’s second season, marks Vince Gilligan’s return to the director’s seat, and it ostensibly picks up right where the last episode ended: Chuck, overwhelmed by the pervasive electricity in the all-night copy shop, lost consciousness, cracking his head on the counter, while Jimmy stood outside watching, intoning, “Call 911… call 911…”
Now we see Jimmy in the hospital, watching the still body, looking sullen, sad. But Gilligan loves tricking his viewers, playing off expectations. The camera pulls back and the nurse moves aside to reveal Chuck sitting beside Jimmy and their mother lying in the hospital bed.
