As the new season demonstrates, the AMC demonstrate has moved forward richer in the process, even if the pacing at times remains a trifle sluggish.

At the same time, the series is operating on multiple racetracks — not just the parallel course of former officers Mike( Jonathan Banks ), but likewise the arcs of drug peddler Nacho( Michael Mando) and stimulant kingpin Gus Fring( Giancarlo Esposito ), whose arrival committed the evidence a shot of adrenaline, even if “Saul” is taking its occasion, as usual, in chronicling how Gus built his empire.

Last, but not least, there’s Kim( Rhea Seehorn ), the straight-laced advocate whose soft spot for Jimmy has exposed unexpected sides to her personality, who begins to see him in a different sunlight as the season progresses.
