    That was a great episode. And it’s looking like that rumor that was posted earlier this week may prove prophetic

    I honestly thought the Jeff stuff was done with the way last week wrapped up. Big fan of tonight’s episode though.

    Another incredible episode. The cinematography is amazing. I can’t believe we are down to 2 episodes left…I want it to end well for Saul but I don’t see it happening…

    And i love that after all of the excitement about the cameos, I think that was the first mention of either of them in this thread?

    shows how far this show has come and that I’d much rather spend a new hour with gene in black and white than with water and Jesse (not that that wasn’t awesome)

    Walt and Jesse was kind of cool in a play the hits sort of way, but outside of the lalo question we didn’t get a lot of them. Mike saying Walt was a bad idea was fine, but I think we all kind of knew that already. They went right up to the line of changing breaking bad via BCS and that’s been my #1 concern.

    Victor having the elaborate con for taking dudes for huge stacks of cash was great. I was just expecting it to be a nostalgic small con where they’d roll the dude on the ride home.

    It was heartbreaking for me. I did not want him slipping back into Saul with no guardrails. He relapsed like an addict after “hearing” from Kim

    I'll put in a spoiler incase you don't want to know. Taken from reddit so not sure if 100% accurate. But its what Gene was saying in the phone booth

    The "inaudible” conversation in the phone booth is actually pretty audible in the German dub. Here is what is said (caution, heavy spoilers).

    German: „Du hast keine Ahnung was ich getan, oder nicht getan habe, okay? Wieso stellst DU dich nicht, auf mich musst du keine Rücksicht nehmen, ich kann nur EINMAL gehängt werden. Okay, hör zu, Kim, wieso reden wir überhaupt darüber. Wir beide sind zu clever…

    English translation: (The beginning is inaudible…but it’s mid-sentence and he is already upset about what Kim must have said): “(…) you have no idea what I did or didn't do, okay? Why don't YOU turn yourself in, you don't have to be considerate of me, I can only be hanged ONCE. Okay, look, Kim, why are we even talking about this. We're both too smart.

    They’re adding interactions scenes with interactions between characters during BB. What we’ve seen so far wasn’t really a stretch, but they’re right there on the edge. It’s a fine line between supplementing and inventing new stuff after the fact. Just not something I’m a fan of, personally.

    I agree but i dont think we can be sure he relapsed so to speak (like yea he relapesed, but maybe he has good intentions in the long game.) maybe he just needs to build up some cash in order to carry out a plan to see her or something along those lines.

    once again this could go a million different ways and i have no idea where it goes.

    I’ll put it in spoiler bc this comes from the insider pod that I listened to after I posted that
    he relapsed. They refer to it as a drug of choice, and he did It bc he has a bad call with Kim (or about her). He uses Saul to cover up those feelings. They also mentioned that he doesn’t need money, but I had forgotten about his stash of diamonds (?). Even though he had just found out they found a whole bunch of him money, he did it bc of the call with/about Kim

    I took the shells and Francesca $850k account as a some of the motivation to pull the scam. Even if his go bag was pretty loaded, he seemed to be kind of counting on at least one of those accounts being available after things cooled off.

    What do you mean fake drink? He needed to go through the drinks so the only other way would be to loop in the bartenders and have them pour non alcoholic drinks when they all seemed to be drinking whatever the other guy was drinking, which seems way more complicated than this set up

    Better Call Saul Writer RevealDaniel Wormald's Connection to Breaking Bad
    BYJEREMY DICK
    PUBLISHED 31 MINUTES AGO
    Mark Proksch's Better Call Saul character is subtly mentioned in Breaking Bad, as revealed by a writer-director who worked on both shows.

    [​IMG]
    AMC
    While Daniel's screen time is limited, he has stood out as a fan favorite character because of the entertaining way he is portrayed by Proksch. Some fans may have been hoping for one more appearance from the character in the final season of Better Call Saul, but getting close to the end of the series, it does not appear that this is going to happen. But that's not for a lack of trying, as there had apparently been some discussions about bringing back "Pryce" for one more scene.


    This comes from writer-director Thomas Schnauz, who has worked on both Breaking Badand Better Call Saul, in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter. In the latest episode of Better Call Saul, titled "Breaking Bad," Jimmy makes a phone call to Francesca (Tina Parker) to get updates on some of his various criminal cohorts. One of the names he mentions is Danny," and some viewers have surmised that this was Jimmy referring to Daniel Wormald.

    Some people hate waiting or like to know then see how it unfolds.
    Personally, I don’t want spoilers, but I like examining details way too closely and trying to see if I can put the nonexistent clues together, then be entertained by how wrong I got it.

    Felt unsatisfying to me that they decided to show us Saul already aware of the fledgling empire. Hope they go backwards from there.
