The Episode focused completely on Nacho’s arc. The fans may always remember him as a hero. The only reason he was thriving and trying to survive was for his father. He knew it was a matter of time before Salamanca cousins would come to him. But at the same time, he also knew they would come to Fring, who had his eyes on Nacho’s father.

So he decided to go with what was going to happen anyway and gave in. In turn, he saved Fring but sacrificed himself for his father. Nacho certainly died a hero, but before he could pull a gun on himself, he made sure Hector Salamanca knew what he did. Also, that was quite a badass speech.

Lastly, there were not many developments in Kim and Jimmy’s mission to take down Hamlin. Instead, we had a turning point with them finding out about Lalo Salamanca’s death. Jimmy here has a chance of doing the right thing but will he is the question.
