Bob Odenkirk‘s Jimmy McGill is a character of continually shifting morals. In the first season of Vince Gilligan‘s ‘Better Call Saul’ we got to know the man who would go on to become ‘Breaking Bad‘s shady criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. Circa 2002 in Albuquerque, New Mexico Jimmy was a nobody working as a public defender, a one-man law firm who (mostly) tried to do the right thing. But the first season also hinted at his underlying con man persona, Slippin’ Jimmy, the nickname given to him as a kid for faking car accident injuries and conning drivers into paying him to keep quiet. In the season two premiere of ‘Better Call Saul’ we see even more fragments of a man riding ethical lines, further revealing Jimmy as the most complex character to emerge out of the ‘Breaking Bad’ universe next to Walter White.
