Ten, I think. That's what I've been seeing most often lately... Was supposed to have been thirteen - that was the early order... Don't know what happened there...

EDIT - Ten, by the producers' choice. They liked the flow of the first season so well, they opted for that size a season again.

Loved the premiere.

Kyle Bornheimer played Ken in 1.4 of BB. Walt blew up his car. Ken deserved it.

Loved #2. New episodes of this show will be the best hours of my next eight weeks.

For sure. Chuck wouldn't have gone in if not for Howard's visit and revealing that Jimmy was working on the suit.

So sad, Kim enjoying the story one second and then scolding Jimmy the next... 'I can't hear about this kind of stuff' - tragedy...

Wish we could have seen Jimmy telling Daniel about what he'd have to do...
(... and while it was wonderful of them to give us the full Gale/Major Tom karaoke video, I notice they didn't offer up the Squat Cobbler as an online extra here...)

Yeah, 'nil' chances of Walter White in Season 2, for sure, but I do expect we'll see him before the series ends...

We are getting a BB character in the next BCS, I saw in the previews... Jim Beaver's Lawson (the arms dealer that sold Walt a handgun in 4.2 and his very, very big gun in the 5.1 flashforward) is in BCS 2.4.

... And Max Arciniega played Domingo 'Krazy-8' Molina on the first three episodes of BB. He'll be strangled by Walt with a bike lock in Jesse's basement and join his cousin Emilio in being dissolved in acid... Here, he was the dealer Tuco and Nacho met with in the restaurant...

Mike's solution to the Tuco problem looked painful... But made sense. Couldn't kill him... But he DOES have to 'go away', because he's too cuckoo to stick around for the next five or so years...

Mark Margolis did eight episodes of BB as 'Tio' Hector Salamanca, beginning with 2.2. Then he went out with a bang in 4.13...

Love that the last scene here began with an 'order up' ding.

Love the way he sauntered into the diner...

Flashback was 1992, ten years prior to the start of BCS.

If I was Mike, I sure wouldn't have given Nacho back his 25...

Luis and Daniel Mercada played Hector's nephews Marco and Leonel Salamanca in five episodes beginning with 3.1 before Hank killed Marco in that glorious shootout in 'One Minute' (3.7)... Leonel survived to a sixth before Mike took him out in the hospital in 3.8...

http://variety.com/2016/tv/news/better-call-saul-season-2-episode-6-breaking-bad-cousins-hector-salamanca-1201735625/. On the resurfacing of BB characters and that fine line of 'too much' or 'too few', I think they've gotten it just right so far - the Salamancas and Krazy-8 make sense, and Ken was a fun surprise... Gilligan says he was voted down in putting somebody in #10 that they could have... I hope we'll at least hear who that might have been (after the finale airs)...

Nacho is not related to the Salamancas (except, you know, in business).

Presumably, it'll kinda be like Hector said - The cops would likely give Mike a pass on the gun, being an ex-cop...

Plenty of time... I don't wanna see Hector have his stroke in the next four hours, I'd rather the opportunity to see him more like this for awhile first.

Yeah, Jimmy's trying on some new clothes next week..

A really minor one, but... another was-first-on-BB character last night (I didn't catch it myself, but saw it in comments under Sepinwall...). Jennifer Hasty as real estate agent Stephanie Doswell... here, she was showing Stacey and Mike a house; on 4.3 of BB, Marie stole a mini-spoon from an open house Stephanie was hosting, and at another open house, Marie and Stephanie had a physical confrontation about the thievery.

Fantastic montages last night. Love the ties.

So good. Every scene.

Finale is titled 'Klick' and will be directed by Gilligan and written by he and Heather Marion, who is getting her first script credit, but she's been a writers' assistant for both seasons.

Ten different directors - Thomas Schnauz (1), Terry McDonough (2), Scott Winant (3), Adam Bernstein (4), John Shiban (5), Michael Slovis (6), Colin Bucksey (7), Larysa Kondracki (8), Peter Gould (9), and Vince Gilligan (10).

Writers were Thomas Schnauz on 1 and 8, Gennifer Hutchison on 2 and 6, Jonathan Glatzer (new) on 3, Gordon Smith on 4 and 7, Ann Cherkis (new) on 5, Peter Gould on 9, and Vince Gilligan and Heather Marion on 10.

They MAY have done something really clever again with the titles. Might just be a coincidence, might be... meaningful.

1 - Switch
2 - Cobbler
3 - Amarillo
4 - Gloves Off
5 - Rebecca
6 - Bali Ha'i
7 - Inflatable
8 - Fifi
9 - Nailed
10 - Klick

Somebody posted on reddit... if you take the first letters of each title, SCAGRBIFNK, and scramble them... you can make the anagram FRINGSBACK, which, you know, would be pretty damned cool.

Haven't seen the finale yet - was JUST about to start it last night when I got the call from Mom to pick her up from the hospital... yeah, guess that was maybe a little bit more important... But I'm quite anxious to go home and watch it, of course. Soon.

Finale was great. I wasn't disappointed that we didn't get to see Gus... That 'first contact' felt right to me. DON'T.

'Not today, Hector.'

They kept true to their 'more BB people in 2' promise, for sure. Last year, Tuco and a couple of his bodyguards. This year, more Tuco, Krazy-8, Hector, the Cousins, Lawson the arms dealer, KEN WINS... (... and a police officer, Saxton, on both shows; and Mike's waitress friend, Fran... and a real estate agent...)

I'm sure we'll get some Gus next season.

9 should be (or show up on) your On Demand, sure. If not, it's also on amc's site...

http://www.ew.com/article/2016/04/19/better-call-saul-season-2-finale-klick-gilligan-gould The return that Gilligan was talked out of putting in the finale was Marie, who might have been the tech giving Chuck his MRI... Yeah, that fits the 'would have been kinda cool, but may also have been distracting from the story'...

I haven't had time, but I'm looking forward to re-watching some BB (especially the earliest Saul and Mike appearances, yes).

I definitely wondered if Nacho was purposely blocking Mike's shot, but he WAS a really good distance away...

Chuck keeping Mom's last words (and that she'd awakened at all) is a whole... 'nother... level...
