Witness was written by Thomas Schnauz and directed by Vince Gilligan.
In the cold open, Chuck converses with a private investigator. While drinking tea, Chucks peaks outside of his window apprehensively. After a couple of hours, Mike’s tail leads to Los Pollos Hermanos as the person who retrieved the tracker drops it off at the restaurant. While Jimmy and Kim work on hiring a new paralegal, Mike calls Jimmy and has him watch the man Mike tailed as he has breakfast in the restaurant. Jimmy notices nothing unusual and reports back to Mike as Gus watches the two from a distance. The trail picks back up as Mike notices one of Hector’s men drive towards the back of the restaurant and leave nearly as quickly. Eventually, the trail drops off again and Mike finds a cell phone with the gas cap under it in the middle of the road, much to his annoyance. Ernesto approaches Wexler-McGill, but decides against entering and speaks to Kim in the parking lot about the tape. Kim relays this to Jimmy and the former takes the latter on as his lawyer. Jimmy suppresses his feelings of anger and betrayal in front of Kim, but later drives to Chuck’s house, breaks in and angrily berates him and destroys the tape. Hamlin and David, the PI, step in before the situation escalates any further and Chuck calls upon them to be witnesses to what just happened.
A really solid episode, great acting, great mixing of comedy and drama, and great storytelling. Maybe not as strong as the first episode of the season but still a really solid episode all around.
