Clifford gives Jimmy a second chance. Kim is questioned by Howard for her knowing about Jimmy's commercial in advance and not telling anyone. 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 McGill: It was a simple, little commercial. It aired once... that's all. And can I remind you... it worked. It worked like a dream.
Chuck McGill: See, that's your problem, Jimmy... thinking the ends justify the means. And you're forever shocked when it all blows up in your face.
Jimmy McGill: What did I do that was so wrong?
Chuck McGill: You broke the rules.

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.
