Better Call Saul season 4, episode 8 recap: ‘Coushatta’


Is Kim catching the “Saul Goodman” bug? Based on this week’s episode of Better Call Saul, we’d go with a hard yes.

Better Call Saul continues to get more and more interesting and never ceases to surprise the fans. Just when you think that it’s as crazy as it’ll be for the season, they throw us for a loop. This week, we learn what plan Kim had concocted to help out Huell, and we have to say it’s pretty darn impressive.

It’s a bit jarring to see Kim latch onto Jimmy’s new way of life so quickly but then again who doesn’t have a thirst for adventure and living life on the dangerous side? In order to help Huell out, Jimmy goes off to Coushatta, Louisana and is seen writing letters upon letters on his bus ride over, even getting the assistance of other passengers along the way.

What are these letters for exactly? Well, these are all letters voicing support for Huell from residents of his hometown and in order to make it believable, Jimmy travels all the way to there to the local post office so he can send out the letters from there to the lawyers that are trying to prosecute Huell. It’s quite the elaborate plan–but it works.

When the lawyers try to pry and learn more about this overwhelming support for Huell, they call a number that was left on one of the letters. And as expected, Jimmy along with a few others, are on the other end speaking praises of Huell in order to trick the lawyers. All’s well that ends well because the plan is successful, and it appears that Kim is now addicted to the thrill of it.

When Jimmy apologizes for bringing her in and goes on to say they’ll never do this again, she responds with an unexpected, “Let’s do this again”. Well then, anyone else seeing how we may eventually lose Kim along the way? Oh, the possibilities.
