Mike plans and runs a deal for Nacho, getting Tuco arrested but refusing to kill him. Jimmy tries to convince his brother that Kim had nothing to do with his slip; he even tries to make a deal, saying he'd quit the law if Kim was left out. All this time, Chuck is perplexed by Jimmy's ways of getting something even though this means breaking the law. Written by Andreea D

Jimmy enters HHM at night when the janitor is burnishing the floor. The janitor tells Jimmy to be careful as the floor is slippery. This is not true. Burnishing makes floors shiny; however, it does not make floors slippery. People tend to see shiny floors and assume they are slippery when in reality they are not. Floor wax in the United States has been manufactured for decades to not be slippery. See more »

The Integrity of MIke
20 May 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Jimmy is realizing all the time that having a personal investment in legal work is of little importance. The huge firms are bullies, filled with self-centered narcissists. Jimmy does something that will benefit the firm greatly, but there is no gratitude, only animus because he acted independently. This would be good advice at times, but in this case, the firm has all of Jimmy's good work and a multi-million dollar case and still can't let such an unconventional character benefit. They even go after Kim despite her not knowing that Jimmy was going to air the commercial. The second plot is a sophisticated plot to benefit drug pushers, getting rid of a lose cannon. Mike is almost killed doing this. His plan proves amazingly risky to say the least.
