Is anyone else getting mildly frustrated with Better Call Saul? No, I don’t mean to say the show is bad — far from it. What I mean is that it’s so interesting to see how much the writers are taking their time in actually pushing Jimmy McGill to where we see him in Better Call Saul. Early on in the first season, there were glimpses of Saul in Jimmy’s character, and it would have been the most natural thing in the world for him to have made the transition at the beginning of Season 2.

It’s a couple seasons later, and they’re still taking their sweet time. It’s glacial in its pacing, and yet all the better for it, since it feels like a more realistic take on it. We can all make mistakes and then revert back to being better people, only to make worse decisions down the line. Like the waves on the beach, we’ll eventually get just a bit further every time, and rather than have Jimmy commit early on, they opted to take the “wave” approach to it.

But it looks like we are so close to seeing the true birth of Saul Goodman, as indicated by the trailer above and the synopsis for the upcoming season:

In Better Call Saul‘s fourth season, Chuck’s death catalyzes Jimmy McGill’s transformation into Saul Goodman. In the wake of his loss, Jimmy takes steps into the criminal world that will put his future as a lawyer – and his relationship with Kim (Rhea Seehorn) – in jeopardy. Chuck’s (Michael McKean) death deeply affects former colleagues Howard (Patrick Fabian) and Kim as well, putting the two of them once again on opposite sides of a battle sparked by the Brothers McGill.

Meanwhile, Mike Ehrmantraut takes a more active role as Madrigal Electromotive’s newest (and most thorough) security consultant. It’s a volatile time to be in Gus Fring’s (Giancarlo Esposito) employ, as Hector’s collapse sends shock waves throughout the Albuquerque underworld and throws the cartel into chaos — tearing apart both Gus and Nacho’s (Michael Mando) well-laid plans. While Gus changes course, Nacho finds himself in the crosshairs of deadly forces.
