"We don't have to bop somebody over the head to...make drama on the screen. We deal with such things as getting a haircut, or the feelings about brothers and sisters, and the kind of anger that arises in simple family situations. And we speak to it constructively. ... I think that it's much more dramatic that two men could be working out their feelings of anger -- much more dramatic than showing something of gunfire."
I really felt for Chuck in that scene at his home when he looked at the papers and he just knew what Jimmy had done.
Kim: You made a mistake, and instead of just facing up to it, you accuse your brother of plotting against you. You come up with this elaborate scheme.
Chuck: He's capable of this! You know he is!
Kim: I know he's not perfect! And I know he cuts corners. But you're the one who made him this way. He idolizes you. He accepts you. He takes care of you. And all he ever wanted was your love and support, but all you've ever done is judge him. You never believed in him. You never wanted him to succeed.
And you know what? I feel sorry for him.
And I feel sorry for you.
Which is the thing that connects Jimmy's arc to Mike's, even though they often seem to be in completely different worlds. Mike didn't whack the good Samaritan, but...
I mean, I feel that there's almost nothing left of the Jimmy that we seem like we know in BCS, and it makes me feel sad.
