Yes, was going to ask about Kim as I've been zoning out during her scenes, some sort of 'guilt' or wanting to do more but I have no idea what's up w/ her taking those 'useless'/silly criminal cases, esp to the pt of affecting her main client. Hate irrational behavior.

As for Howard, I guess he feels somehow responsible for Chuck's death.
Where's everyone? I want my answers dammit lol. :D

Maybe Howard and Kim are keeping a secret. Maybe Chuck left money to Jimmy if he changes his name.

Howard does feel guilty for Chuck because he doesn't know it was Jimmy that call the insurer and ratted out his brother.

I kind of thought Kim was a little like Jimmy. Maybe it's why they get along so well. Just like Jimmy she gets restless doing boring lawyer work :)

Any theories on Howard or Kim? They both acting strange.
I think for Howard it's straightforward Chuck guilt. For Kim Chuck's death (and her own car accident) served as an awakening, we see how much she admired Chuck from her HHM mail room days, saw him as a crusader who used the law to help people, his death has caused her to question her purpose as a lawyer/in life and essentially try to be more like Chuck.

It was interesting to see that the only reason Jimmy became a lawyer was Kim, not his brother. Now that she has quashed his dreams of a law-firm together he has even more motivation to commit to a life of crime and to what we saw in BB with him.

Sadly I can see this show running only one season unless the last season is in the present. I am liking the fact that the last few episodes have been all about Jimmy. Its also really weird to hear ppl calling him Saul.

There's only so much they can do, that's the reality of prequels, unless they start making up stuff and tangents. I'm looking forward to any BB sequel to show the aftermath, there's lots to explore there...and bring Mike back!!!!!, he didn't convincingly die! ;)

Anyone have any guesses of what Kim has planned with the notepads, crayons, pencils, etc?

No idea, I'm starting to tune out w/ her, she's getting irrational.

So what's up w/ Jimmy mocking her new boss? Pent up resentment for leaving their arrangement of opening an office together?

Definitely. I think that has the be the only reason for being that way towards him.
Kim is doing what is morally and justly right in her newfound career direction, while Jimmy has transitioned into Saul.

If that's the case, maybe they will break up eventually and my theory of her dying will be wrong.

Or she follow's Jimmy down his path and ruins her career for doing so.

Perhaps as anything's possible but doesn't it seem like she's getting more 'public defender' nowadays? She'll need to do an 180 I suppose.
