After much of this final season of “Better Call Saul” maintained a dizzying pace, leading to the horrific deaths of both Howard Hamlin (Patrick Fabian) and Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton) in quick succession, viewers had a little surprise when the final episode abruptly breaks away from the current plot of Jimmy and Kim Wexler’s relationship dissolving in real time to catch up with Cinnabon Gene Takovic, Jimmy/Saul’s alias while in hiding behind the events of “Breaking Bad”. The question remains as to whether that will be the last we see of Gene’s lonely existence in Nebraska – not to mention the aftermath of Jimmy’s heartbreak when he sees Kim pack up and walk out the door, for both of you – but this is at least a major implication for next week’s episode.
Thanks to the creative team’s refusal to joke about the impending arrivals of Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman and Bryan Cranston’s Walter White, we now know that the two biggest characters in the “Breaking Bad” universe are slated. will cross paths with a spinoff/prequel series at some point in this final season. Based on the title, that seems likely to happen in this next episode. However, it is still to be seen when exactly this can happen. As Gould wittily noted, not a single fan theory could even figure out how they would contribute to “Better Call Saul”. My money is in an extended sequence set during Saul Goodman’s “peak” at some never-before-seen corner of the “Breaking Bad” timeline, to balance out the entire length of the week. first, but we’ll have to wait and see.
“Better Call Saul” airs new episodes every Monday on AMC.
