This is why I feel like it’s such a great show. I feel the same way about Chuck, but at the same time, he saw what Jimmy did to their dad and his business. I can see why someone would find it hard to ever forgive that or believe that that person would truly change.
If I had a sibling like Jimmy I don’t necessarily think I’d ever believe in them or trust them. No wonder he doesn’t want him polluting something he has worked so hard to build and blocks Jimmy’s progress in the firm.
But at the same time, maybe if he had been more willing to give him a chance Jimmy might have ended up staying Jimmy, rather than becoming Saul. Or maybe it’s too charitable to Jimmy to say that Chuck is somehow culpable for his descent, as if Jimmy hasn’t always been a bit of fraud committing conman.
This kind of complexity makes the show great, things aren’t just black and white.
