"Chicanery" is the fifth episode of the third season of the AMC television series Better Call Saul, the spinoff series of Breaking Bad. The episode aired on May 8, 2017 on AMC in the United States. Outside of the United States, the episode premiered on streaming service Netflix in several countries.

ChicaneryBetter Call Saul : Season 3 Episode 5

This episode is the first time Jonathan Banks, who had appeared in every episode in the series up to that point, did not make an appearance as Mike. Lavell Crawford reprises his role as Huell Babineaux from Breaking Bad after last appearing in the season 5 episode "To'hajiilee".

TVLine named Michael McKean the "Performer of the Week" for his performance in this episode, writing it was the "finest showcase yet for his fascinatingly layered performance as Jimmy's brother Chuck McGill."[5] Donna Bowman of The A.V. Club, who gave the episode an "A" rating, praised the courtroom scene, saying "it isn't just to give us the satisfaction of a courtroom drama, the neat ending where the truth comes out. The brilliance of this structure is to give us a slow-motion view of the heavens falling, an outcome methodically pursued by Kim and Jimmy, which nevertheless seems to give them no satisfaction."[6]

"Gloves Off" features some key emotional moments when Jimmy tends to Chuck as his brother's delusions grow. Jimmy's dedication to Kim is also clear, as he states he'd be willing to give up practicing law entirely if Chuck would help Kim with her upcoming case. However, the episode is focused mostly on Mike. In season 2, Mike's storylines grew independent from Jimmy's, and it's interesting to see how Gilligan and the writers make the two competing narratives intersect. Mike comes to Nacho's aid once more when he's threatened by Tuco.

Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) was one of the most popular characters on "Breaking Bad." A former police officer, Mike works as a hitman and private investigator alongside Walt, Jesse, and Saul, and is tragically killed in the 5th season of "Breaking Bad" during one of Walt's most truly villainous moments. Banks' grouchy, surprisingly sensitive performance made him a fan favorite, and viewers were excited at the news that he'd be an integral part of "Better Call Saul."

The most recent episode of "Better Call Saul" sets up a thrilling end point to the series in the upcoming season 6. It features the strongest performance by Tony Dalton as Lalo Salamanca, one of the most complex characters on the show. After threatening Jimmy and Kim in "Bad Choice Road," Lalo's location is revealed to Gus by Mike. Gus plans to have him killed, and both Jimmy and Mike wrestle with the implications that will have. Nacho also becomes involved when Gus recruits him for the planned assassination attempt.

"Winner" is the episode in which Jimmy finally adopts the name Saul Goodman. At 60 minutes, it's the longest episode of the entire series, and Jimmy's downward spiral makes it utterly gripping from beginning to end. Like many of the best episodes, "Winner" opens with a flashback showing a more tender moment between Jimmy and Chuck as they comically sing karaoke together following Jimmy's successful completion of the New Mexico bar exam. For fans, the cameo appearance by Michael McKean was quite a nice touch, considering Chuck's absence from season 4.

After teasing their rivalry for two and a half seasons, "Chicanery" dives into a courtroom battle between Jimmy and his brother Chuck. Many episodes of "Better Call Saul" include trial sequences, but "Chicanery" is unique in that it shows the entirety of the courtroom case. The episode begins with a flashback that shows a kinder earlier moment between the brothers, one that also explains the origins of Chuck's technology phobia. It's the perfect contrast to the bitter rivalry that reaches a climax in "Chicanery."

Jimmy is tasked with many dangerous tasks amidst the show's five season run, but he was never as completely helpless as he is in "Bagman." Many of the best episodes of "Breaking Bad" felt inspired by classic westerns. While those elements are not as prominent amidst the legal and ethical dilemmas of "Better Call Saul," some of the western influences return in "Bagman." It's a gripping survival story in which Jimmy must use his wits to stay alive, as he's unable to talk his way out of the scenario.

Gilligan personally directed the episode, and told Variety that "Bagman"was the most challenging shoot of his entire career. He cited cinematic classics like "Lawrence of Arabia" as influences. It's the most visually and aesthetically unique episode in "Better Call Saul's" entire run, and functions as a standalone for new viewers.

On May 8th, 2017, episode five "Chicanery" of season 3 of the drama television series Better Call Saul premiered.[1] In the episode, the character Chuck McGill testifies against his brother Jimmy and has a mental breakdown during questioning, bursting out with accusations against his brother, which makes him appear paranoid and unhinged. That day, AMC uploaded[2] the clip to their YouTube account, where the scene received more than 1.2 million views in three years (shown below, left; alternative version shown below, right).

The copypasta, while occasionally posted, did not receive variations until the release of season 5 of the series in early 2020. On March 18th, 2020, following the premiere of Better Call Saul episode "Dedicado a Max", a 4chan[4] user posted the earliest found modified version of copypasta, a meme referencing the episode (shown below, left). On April 20th, 2020, another 4chan user posted[5] a version of the copypasta parodying foreign adaptations of popular shows (shown below, right). 041b061a72
