Season 1

All but one of the episode names of Season 1 end in an "o" sound. Alpine Shepherd Boy was originally going to be titled "Jell-O" in reference to jelly cups Jimmy uses to advertise his services as he begins specialising in elder law. The name was changed to Alpine Shepherd Boy in order to avoid a potential lawsuit with Kraft Foods who own the Jell-O brand name.


  1. Spanish for 'One', being the first episode of the series.


  1. Spanish for 'Son', referring to Tuco by Abuelita, his grandmother.


  1. Referring the character Ignacio "Nacho" Varga.


  1. From the scene where Saul stages saving the billboard worker while he films his video decrying Hamlin Hamlin McGill the court's ruling for the billboard to come down.

Alpine Shepherd Boy

  1. One of Jimmy's customers after the billboard story was Mrs. Strauss who has Jimmy writing her will, one of the items listed being the Alpine Shepherd Boy gnome.


  1. Short-form for police officers as this episode explores Mike's past in the Philadelphia Police Force.


  1. In this episode, Jimmy hosts a game of Bingo.


  1. Referring to the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, commonly referred to as the RICO Act or simply RICO, is a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization.


  1. This name refers to the sandwich Mike packs with him to the drug swap.


  1. Referring the character Marco Pasternak.

Season 2

Season 2's episode titles kick the pattern of ending in an "o" sound, instead fitting a hint into the episode names. The first letter of each episode could be rearranged to spell FRINGSBACK (Fring's back). This maybe an indication Gus Fring from the original show will soon become a common character in Better Call Saul. This in syndication with the warning to Mike in Klick with a note in his car windshield stating "DON'T" preventing the assassination of Hector Salamanca strongly hints that Gus will return in Season 3.


  1. Signifying Saul's change in attitude to abandon doing "the right thing" preferring to do his job his own way.
  2. Also representing Saul's reluctant decision to accept Davis & Main's offer to become an associate after declining the offer at the court building.
  3. At the end of the episode, Saul flips a switch in his new office labelled "Do NOT turn OFF!!!" (albeit to no consequences) showing his new principal of not complying to other's standards.


  1. Referring to a 'Hoboken Squat Cobbler' (a form of fetish video whereas a man sits in a pie and wiggles about) which Jimmy uses to exonerate Daniel Wormald from possible charges after his lone drug deal ended with Nacho raiding his pharmaceutical stash and baseball card collection.


  1. A city in Texas where Jimmy stages solicitation with a busload of seniors.
