summary: atletico madrid get knocked out of the copa del rey and antoine looks to his girlfriend for comfort
You hadn’t been able to make it to the game that evening. Instead of heading to Barcelona to watch the match live and cheer Atletico on from the stands, you’d been forced to
rely on Twitter, thanks to your boss insisting on holding a meeting the next morning at 9am.
If it were any other match, you would have been disappointed. Instead, you’re kind of grateful. Watching Antoine’s face fall and a sad
smile grace his features as the team applauded the away fans had been bad enough through your laptop
screen, and you’re pretty sure seeing it in the flesh would have been enough to make
you never want to watch a football match again.

"Yesterday, I was looking around, see,
and I noticed a window in the Mystery Shack
shaped like a big ol' triangle with an eyeball in it.
Now I can't stop thinking about triangles.
Portals, demons, nacho earrings, infinity pizza.
I have a theory that roadside cones
are trying to take over the world. Lousy shapes!"

Grunkle Stan and Carla “Hotpants” McCorkle never officially broke up…
Well we all know that she left him for some hippy dude but what if she had to get back together with Stan? maybe she realized that Stanford was the one for her all along, or maybe she broke up with hippy dude and went back to Stan or maybe she was pregnant? Who knows?
But you may ask why I got this idea and well…
Let’s take a look at Mabel
She has a flower on her head just like dun dun dun! Hotpants!
That’s not all, what about …

Still not convinced well what about this!
The hair! Oh my gosh the hair it’s just like DUN DUN DUN! Hotpants!
Highlights of the Better Call Saul Insider Podcast, Ep. 109 “Pimento”
Guests this episode are Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould, writer/director/bride-to-be
Tom Schnauz, Jonathan Banks (Mike), and Michael Mando (Nacho).
Michael Mando didn’t find out that “Mijo” was Tuco until the
day before shooting episode 102.
Back in episode 102, Nacho saying “May I?” before taking the
wire cutters from Tuco wasn’t in the script.
Much like Rhea Seehorn, Mando spent time on the set even
when he wasn’t in scenes, studying the show and the actors.
The dummy side (fake scene) for Mando’s audition, written by
assistant writer Heather Marion, was about a guy in a bar who wanted a USB key
from a person he had some kind of affection for or history with, but ultimately
had to threaten his family to get the USB. The words describing his character
were “intelligent, dangerous, ambitious.”
Mark Proksch, who plays Pryce, appears on local TV morning
talk shows around the country under the name of K-Strass, the Zim Zam Yo-Yo
Man, a supposed yo-yo master who actually knows nothing about yo-yo, putting
the hosts in an awkward situation.
This is the second time Schnauz has directed. The first was Mike’s
final episode on Breaking Bad, 507 “Say
This episode had a teaser, a flashback into Jimmy’s past,
which was cut for time.
The writers didn’t realize Chuck was jealous of and
continuously sabotaging Jimmy until they were breaking episode 107. This was partially
inspired by the pride with which Michael McKean plays Chuck. But until 107,
they thought that “Hamlin was the bad guy, pure and simple” (Vince Gilligan).
I won’t go into detail about it since they have talked about
this so many times before, but the writers and actors spend a substantial
amount of time talking about the unique drawn-out nature of TV, which allows
the writers to draw inspiration from the actors (as with Chuck’s character
Michael Mando points out that Nacho now has an earring in
this episode, which he takes to mean something about the character has changed—he
is making some more “avant-garde” moves now.
Mando describes “four pillars” of Nacho’s character which he
learned from his two scenes in 102: First, his intelligent “malleability,” in
that he can switch quickly between talking to Tuco and talking to Jimmy, with
very different approaches to the two. Second, “the dichotomy of compassion and
violence that live within this character like sky and land.” Third, his
ambition. Fourth, the “human chord”—why he decided to effectively entrust his
life to Jimmy, someone with a completely different background and personality,
and even “believes in Jimmy before Jimmy believes in himself.”
Mando and Banks have different perspectives on doing
multiple takes to get variations on a scene or “just for safety.” Mando appreciates
directors giving the actors a chance to stretch and be creative, while Banks
feels like if he were going to do more takes after he’s already gotten the
scene right, he would still be doing takes from Breaking Bad—because an actor is never really satisfied with his
