As the series' conclusion approaches, "Better Call Saul" flashes back to "Breaking Bad"; (SPOILER) In Florida
In tonight's third-to-last episode of Better Call Saul, Bryan Cranston's character Walter White tells Aaron Paul's character Jesse Pinkman,
"I said no details." "He only knows what he needs to know," the partially ski-masked high school science teacher
and would-be drug kingpin tells his sidekick as a smarmy Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) stands in front of the Breaking Bad duo in their famous meth lab RV,
also known as the Krystal Ship. In the 11th episode of the sixth and final season of Better Call Saul, which was called "Breaking Bad" and was written and directed by Thomas Schnauz,
the Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould-created spinoff went back and forth to the edges of important Breaking Bad events. The series finale is on August 15.
About halfway through an episode of almost any other show, the long-awaited arrival of White/Heisenberg and his goons would be the show-stopping moment.
But since this was Better Call Saul, the slippery cards held a much bigger secret. "Fun and Games,"
which aired on July 18 and was written and directed by Michael Morris and Ann Cherkis, showed how Rhea Seehorn's Kim Wexler had to leave her life with Odenkirk's Jimmy McGill and Goodman.
Tonight's "Breaking Bad" showed what happened to her after the bloody end of the mother show, which won multiple Emmys and ended in 2013.
"So much work, but so much fun," said a longtime member of Gilligan's team. It was over way too soon.
In April 2021, when Vince was directing Episode 602, I only had Aaron and Bryan for a day and a half.
I had to write this scene and have it ready a long time before we started filming the rest of 611.
That's because we could only get the guys together on those dates because they had other things to do.
