Following the events of Breaking Bad, Saul Goodman lives as “Gene”, manager of a Cinnabon in Omaha, Nebraska. After work, he watches a VHS tape of a 2005, Saul Goodman TV ad. In 2002, Jimmy McGill (Saul’s birth name) is a struggling public defender in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He attempts to convince Craig and Betsy Kettleman to retain him for their embezzlement case/trial. Jimmy cares for his brother Chuck, who is semi-reclusive and believes he has electromagnetic hypersensitivity. Jimmy confronts Howard Hamlin of Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill (HHM), when (Howard) attempts to buy Chuck out, but Jimmy demands HHM pay Chuck for his partnership’s full value, $15 million. The Kettlemans hire HHM, so Jimmy orchestrates a phony vehicle-pedestrian accident for Betsy, in hopes of earning her trust. Jimmy’s accomplices, twins Lars and Cal, accidentally target the wrong car, which is driven by gangster Tuco Salamanca’s grandmother. The twins try to shake her down, and Jimmy arrives a bit late, as Tuco has taken control of the situation at gunpoint.
Struggling public defender Jimmy McGill constructs an elaborate yet questionable plan for winning back a pair of wealthy potential clients.
