Fans commend Rhea Seehorn’s directorial debut in ‘Better Call Saul’ Season 6 Episode 4
Fans were just as impressed with Seehorn’s performance in the episode as they were with her directing. “I’m really impressed with how well she captures the show’s visual language,” writes one fan on Reddit.
“From what I understand, she had been shadowing some of the other directors on the set for a while, and that homework paid off because she really brought it to this episode along with another terrific performance.”
“Great directing from Rhea Seehorn who continues to impress,” says another Redditor. They enjoyed the “day-to-day” look at Gus Fring’s life and the scene between Kim and Mike (Jonathan Banks) in particular.
They continued: “[It’s] the scene I always wanted to see and it was done to perfection, acknowledging that they would have briefly met before; it was even better than I could have ever hoped for. If I wasn’t convinced of how excellent this season was gonna be, I certainly am now.”
‘Better Call Saul’ Season 6 Episode 4 recap
“Hit and Run” pulls back the curtain on the depths of Gus Fring’s (Giancarlo Esposito) paranoia. The episode opens with an unknown couple walking into 1213 Jefferson Street Northeast — Gus’ Albuquerque home. Later, we learn Mr. and Mrs. Ryman (Kirk Bovill, Joni Bovill) play a decoy couple helping to protect Fring from any vengeful moves Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton) might try to make.
Elsewhere, Jimmy/Saul and Kim make more moves against Howard. While Kim has coffee with Cliff Main (Edward James Begley Jr.), Jimmy/Saul borrows Howard’s car with Huell’s (Lavell Crawford) handy device and picks up Wendy S. (Julia Minesci) to further Cliff’s suspicions.
What’s more, Kim and Mike come face to face (again) in “Hit and Run.” After confronting the men she believes are following her, Mike meets her at El Camino to explain their purpose — Lalo is alive and he’s been tasked with surveilling anyone he might try to contact. Kim recognizes Mike from his days as the courthouse parking attendant, piecing together he was also the man Jimmy was with in the desert in “Bagman.”
Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 4 concludes with Jimmy/Saul showing Kim the future offices of Saul Goodman. “Keep the toilet,” Kim says. “Taco Cabeza is just around the corner.”
New episodes of Better Call Saul air Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
