Jimmy has a personal vendetta against Howard Hamlin.

Howard Hamlin feels responsible for Chuck’s death.

Jimmy blames Howard for the death of his brother, Chuck, a former colleague and permanent partner of Howard’s at Hamlin Hamlin & McGill (HMM). Chuck took leave of the company when he began suffering from an illness, claiming a sensitivity to electromagnets, which prevented him from leaving the house.

After Howard forced Chuck out of the company, Chuck committed suicide in a fire he started.

For years, Jimmy wanted nothing more than a seat at the table and also work at HMM. Not seeing his brother good enough, Chuck prevented him. At the time, Howard respected those wishes.

In season five, feeling responsible for Chuck’s death, Howard offered Jimmy the opportunity to work at HMM once he saw the business he started building as Saul Goodman, but Jimmy was offended. Not only did it seem like a sin-assumption, but it also came a little too late.

Instead, Jimmy decided to devote himself to making Howard’s life miserable and tarnishing his name. In season five, he threw bowling balls at his car and sent prostitutes to disturb a meeting for lunch.
