History

Better Call Saul

Season 5

In 2004, Tim discusses the seeming connection between two crimes because of the same car being spotted at both crimes. He says that the man who owns this car is probably the suspect that APD is looking for, which leads them to Lalo Salamanca. ("Wexler v. Goodman")

Breaking Bad

Season 2

In 2008, Tim is introduced when he helps investigate Walter White's disappearance, apparently as a favor on his day off for Hank Schrader. He questions Skyler White briefly and asks about a phone call she mentioned, however Hank reveals that there was no record of a phone call indicating that Walt was using a second cell phone. ("Grilled")

Season 4

In 2009, After Marie is arrested for stealing at an open house, Tim tells her that he has good news and reveals that the homeowners will not press charges. Marie, upset at the resurfacing of her kleptomania, breaks into tears. ("Open House")

Tim discusses with Hank the murder of Gale Boetticher. Hank jokes with Tim about the oddball personality that Gale's notebook evokes: "it's like Scarface had sex with Mr. Rogers." He then identifies Badger and Jesse Pinkman as the only people directly tied to the blue meth that he knows of. Hank admits to having "a history" with Jesse, referring to the savage beat-down he delivered to the young man, but doubts that Jesse murdered Gale. Finding Gale dead, the man he now believes is his Heisenberg, "feels like closure," so he no longer wants to contribute to the investigation. "I feel like I'm done," he apologizes. ("Shotgun")

Tim visits Hank at home to see if he could be of any help in the murder of Gale. Eventually Hank links Gale to Los Pollos Hermanos and to Gustavo Fring, so Tim, Hank, Steven Gomez, and ASAC George Merkert, interview Gus together. Everyone at the DEA except Hank seems to come away from the meeting satisfied that Gus is innocent. Tim is on the fence and will follow up the investigation.("Hermanos")
