Close to the end of episode S5E4 of Better Call Saul Lyle, an assistant manager, is closing the restaurant after a shift and saying bye to the workers of Los Pollos Hermanos. One of them mentions that he forgot to cover the fryers, Lyle responds that he will take care of that. He locks the door and goes into the restaurant kitchen to find Gus Fring checking the fryers. Fring asks whether the state of the fryers is acceptable to Lyle and indirectly pressures him to clean them again.
All of this is happening while Fring is awaiting a phone call about the DEA capturing his drug money from the dead-drops, which were exposed by Lalo Salamanca's plan. The plan was revealed to Fring by Nacho.
The scenes cut between Lyle's vigorious, tense cleaning of the fryers and
The DEA's operation to intercept the money and arrest the person carrying it
which in my opinion is a really peculiar mix.
What I found very perplexing about this scene is the choice of the events shown and Fring's side of the dialogue:
Lyle: Everything alright, Mr. Fring?
Fring: This is acceptable to you?
Lyle: I thought Deshawn did a good job. Uh... I'm not seeing anything. It's...
Fring: I understand.
Lyle: Uh, you know, like, now that I look closer... Yeah, I think I see maybe... Yeah. Okay. I'll take care of it, Mr. Fring.
Fring: All right.
Lyle: Yeah. I'm sorry about that, sorry.
Both of the events represent the two sides of Fring's life. Both people shown work for him.
Fring seems very harsh, it's as if he was letting his frustration out on Lyle, who complies to clean the fryers against his will, as at first he deems them clean. Fring disapproves of the result repeatedly and Lyle cleans them again. This is very unlike Fring, who usually is highly professional and does not take out his emotions on others.
Is there any other significance in this scene? How can the choice of the scenes shown be explained?
