Mike seems to have woken up out of town and in bad shape; could Jimmy be behind this? Or does he have other plans to continue self-destructing?

The upcoming fifth episode of 'Better Call Saul' season 5 will see Mike take an impromptu trip out of town, as revealed by the official synopsis.

That said, it also comes to mind that the previous episode ended with Mike getting the sh*t beaten out of him real bad and waking up in a deserted mud-house type accommodation in what seemed like a village way outside town. Is he running from something, or worse — someone in particular? The teaser trailer for the coming episode does not address that at all.

The newly released official promo for the episode titled 'Dedicado a Max' addresses Kim and Jimmy's joint assignment instead, which the synopsis also teases, saying: "As she and Jimmy grow closer over their campaign to help a client, Kim makes a surprising call."

The teaser shows Kim speaking with Kevin, talking to him about the "complications" in his latest case involving Mesa Verde and the old man they are trying to displace to build the call center.

On the other hand, it's quite likely that Jimmy will reach out to Mike for his help, thus digging a bigger hole for the two of them than the one he dug for himself by intensifying his frenemity with Howard in Episode 4. And this isn't the best idea for Jimmy to indulge in, knowing that Kim is out there both sabotaging her relationship with the bank, and informing Kevin of Jimmy's latest stint as litigating for the man the bank wants to replace.

Other teasers for the episode also show Jimmy once again hoarding equipment the way he did before unleashing his wrath on Howard's car.  And as the clip shifts focus to Jimmy stepping in, to stop his client's house from getting demolished, it becomes clear why he might be out to gather resources. Probably for some much-needed vengeance.

All this for the ulterior motive of never having to step his foot back into the world where his brother was an esteemed lawyer might seem a little extra, but this season has always been about Jimmy's path to destruction, as he one by one burns all the bridges to become the amoral lawyer we see in 'Breaking Bad' and hopefully, the journey will be worth the outcome!

Let's also hope that Kim ends up safe and sound without the ultimate fate being the reason why she is not present in the parent show at all. And since the synopsis teases she will take a "surprising call", Kim is most likely going to face the consequences of her actions and none of that can be pretty either.

'Better Call Saul' Season 5 airs on Mondays at 9 pm only on AMC.
