Better Call Saul season 4 episode 3 recap: What happened in episode 3? | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV


WARNING: This episode contains spoilers for Better Call Saul season 4

The third episode of Better Call Saul season four aired on AMC on Monday (August 20) night before dropping on Netflix UK on Tuesday morning.

Titled Something Beautiful, the latest instalment of the Breaking Bad prequel finds Nacho (played by Michael Mando) forced to help stage his own friend’s murder, as Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) pulls off a scam while the origins of Gus’ (Giancarlo Esposito) power comes into focus.

Nacho caught in the middle

Poor Nacho is in deep trouble with no signs of it getting any easier.

After killing Arturo (Vincent Fuentes) last week, Victor (Jeremiah Bitsui) and Tyrus (Ray Campbell) had to cover up the murder.

They put Arturo’s body in a car which they then repeatedly shot before Nacho sat inside and was shot in the arm.

But unfortunately for Nacho, they also shot him in the side to “make it look real”.

They were staging his death to make it look like another cartel gang is waging war on the Salamancas – which will work to Gus’ benefit, as we also find out this episode.

He was left for dead in the desert until the Cousins Leonel and Marco Salamanca (Daniel and Luis Moncada) arrived.

Nacho was forced to admit that he didn’t see the perpetrators as he was treated by the Vet aka Caldera (Joe DeRosa).

His guilt at being forced to betray the Salamancas is confounded when he wakes up and is getting a blood transfusion from one of them.

He survives, but just about.

Slippin’ Jimmy

Jimmy can’t resist a good scam and decided to target the photocopier company where he applied for a job he then turned down.

Having noticed that the office contained the Bavarian Boy ornament which is worth $8,000, he comes up with a plan to swap it with the similar but worthless Merry Wanderer to make some easy money.

He approaches Mike (Jonathan Banks) to do the job but he refuses and seems to pity Jimmy’s obsession with such a petty scam.

He enlists the Vet to find him a burglar to the do the job.

When the job is taking place, it all seems to go to plan until the manager is revealed to be sleeping in his office after being kicked out by his wife.

Instead of going back to sleep, he stays up all night, ordering a pizza all while the burglar is hiding.

Jimmy creates a diversion with a car alarm allowing the burglar to escape.

Kim goes back to work

Having hired a new paralegal, Kim goes back to her client Mesa Verde to pick up where she left off before her accident.

She struggles to accept help and this is further compounded when she is told the sheer scale of the bank expansion.

She is shown a room full of models as her clients list of dozens of new locations they plan to open, meaning more work for her.

Instead of going home after this meeting, she goes and sits in on a criminal case in a court room.

Gus’ rise to the top

With the Salamancas at a huge disadvantage now that Hector (Mark Margolis) is in a coma, Arturo is dead and Nacho working for him, Gus plans an aggressive expansion of his own.

He received a call from Juan Bolsa (Javier Grajeda) who is panicked about the hit on the Salamancas and tells Gus that no product is to cross the border.

With the dealers’ supplies running low he tells Gus to find a local supplier – Gus’ plan all along.

Now he can be in control of producing his own product.

The local supplier he contacts is none other than Breaking Bad’s Gale Boetticher (David Costabile).

This is where the Breaking Bad timeline starts.

Fans will remember Gale as the loveably innocent meth cook who was eventually killed by Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) courtroom save Walter White (Bryan Cranston).

His interaction in the prequel sets Gus’ future drug empire in motion.

The letter

Last week’s episode saw Kim hide Chuck’s (Michael McKean) letter to Jimmy to protect him from the hurt it would likely cost.

She gave it to him in this week’s episode in what proved to be a significant moment in his transformation into Saul Goodman.

Jimmy recites the letter which was a touching and emotional declaration from his recently deceased brother.

Kim sobs at the words as Jimmy flippantly reels it off.

She seems even more upset at his aloofness and complete lack of any emotion, once again emphasising their inevitable separation in the future.

Better Call Saul season 4 drops on Netflix on Tuesdays
