Mike Ehrmantraut has never been one to shy away from the difficult jobs.
As Mike’s story from parking garage attendant to stealth right-hand man for the crooked is told on Better Call Saul, relive some of his best moments in these specially curated Breaking Bad episodes:
Walt’s in trouble. As his partner Jesse slips deeper into a drug binge partly due to his relationship with Jane, Walt knows she must go. When a coincidence arises that can take Jane out of the picture, Walt let’s it happen. But now, there’s a mess to clean up. Walt calls Saul, and Saul calls the only guy he trusts for a job like this — Mike Ehrmantraut.
After Combo, Jesse’s friend, is killed by a couple drug dealers, Jesse wants them dead. But Walt knows this will only draw attention to them. Desperate, Walt asks Saul if they can get Jesse arrested to distract him. When Mike catches wind of the request, he pays Walt a surprise visit and breaks down why getting Jesse arrested is only a “half measure” and that leaves room for more problems.
When Jesse is becoming a problem, Gus orders Mike to take him around for the day to collect money at various locations. Not knowing why he’s there, Jesse grows more agitated throughout the day. But Mike and Gus have a plan, and Jesse is going to enjoy the ride more than he thinks.
The DEA is coming down on Walt and everyone in his circle, including Mike. As Lydia panics, she bribes Mike to kill his men and eliminate the chances of anyone talking. Mike doesn’t take the bait, but that doesn’t mean he won’t have to kill people.
Mike is on his way out of town, but needs his go-bag with his passport to do so. With the DEA’s eyes on Jesse and Saul, the only person that can get him the bag is Walt. Except Walt has other motives and that’s to get the names of Mike’s men who could rat them all out. Mike refuses to give the names and when he checks his bag he sees the revolver is missing. Walt’s never been good at taking no for an answer.
