Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 12 Recap, Theories and Thoughts (2023)

Hey, guys! welcome to anotherBetter call Saulrecap. It's hard to believe that we only have two episodes left in the series.Finalseason of this amazing show. And yet, we still have no idea what will happen next. At this point during your runbreaking Baddelivered "Granite State", which felt like more of a filler episode so we could all catch our breath after the brilliant "Ozymandias". last week's episodeSaul, titled "Breaking Bad", delivered and remains perhaps one of the best entries of the season. So I imagine "Waterworks" will probably be the episode we'll have to go through to get to the grand finale, if you know what I mean, or maybe Vince Gilligan will shock us again and another amazing episode delivered that will blow us away.

Okay, enough waiting, let's move on to this week's episode, "Waterworks".

What Happened in Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 12

We start with Saul doing his best Steve McQueen imitation, throwing a ball at the Constitution-lined wall in his office. Yeah, we're at it againbreaking BadArea. Francesca calls and reminds Saulo of the time. "You've got a lobby full of people here," she complains before threatening to leave at 8 pm. to the point, no matter what.

"Wow, you and your work ethic," jokes Saul. “Did I ever tell you how indispensable you are?” It's such a strange relationship. Francesca hates what she does, but she loves money too much to stop. Saul doesn't like her style, but he knows there aren't many others willing to do her dirty business - and I think Francesca knows that.a lot ofabout his business.

Saul blatantly refuses to take any more customers and hangs up with his assistant. He then throws the ball a little too hard against the wall, causing one of his fake pillars to topple over. He then pulls out a document sent by Kim... divorce papers. oops Saul plays in his Bluetooth headset. "What are you waiting for?" he asks. "Show her in."

Oh boy.

Kim remarried? Was Saul yelling at her new husband? So many questions, so little time.

The answers will have to wait because we are back in black and white land (ie the future) where we see a brunette Kim Wexler slicing a potato. Okay, so... the responses are coming fast and furious. A man enters the house. He brings out some Miracle Whip and Couples Debate Mayonnaise. Next, we see Kim mingling with a group of housewives as her husband chats with the boys at a barbecue. Our worst fears came true: Kim is domesticated.

This couple is clearly very intimate when we see them having sex. Kim and this mystery man spend the night building a jigsaw puzzle and watching TV - you know, kind of like my life. (No gender.) Clearly this man is very different from Jimmy/Saul. He's simple-minded, slightly aloof, and... well, let's just say he doesn't look like he could outsmart a pigeon. He leaves and tells Kim about a new Outback Steakhouse that just opened. "It's a date," she says.

I mean wow What a change. While Jimmy's guilt over Howard's death led him to become an exaggerated (and evil) version of himself, Kim went the opposite way and became a watered down iteration of the feisty lawyer we've come to love. She even works at an irrigation company ordering parts, making coffee, and attending those awful office birthday parties that seem to happen every week.

At lunch, after some patience, Kim chats with her colleagues, who discuss the effects of ecstasy. You ask what she eats. "Tuna sandwich," she replies. “I tried something different and made it with Miracle Whip instead of mayonnaise.” It's frightening how accurate this portrayal of everyday life is.

Later, Kim receives a call from Victor Sinclair. uh-oh She closes her office blinds and closes the door, obviously preparing for the fireworks. After a brief pause, she answers the phone. "Kim Wexler," she says, as professionally as possible. "Hey Kim," comes Saul's voice. "Do you know who that is?" A hit. "I'm going to take that as a sign that you're doing it."

Saul then goes into his usual disjointed tone. He tries to keep things light, but she cuts to the chase. "What you want?" she asks pointedly.

"I don't want anything, I just thought it would be good to catch up... I thought you'd like to know that I'm alive," says Saul. "Yeah. I'm still here, still getting away with it. The feds couldn't find their own ass with two hands and a proctologist." Oh Saul. Let's go man. Show some humility. He comes into this scene as a lost ex-boyfriend.

"You shouldn't call me," says Kim.

"Come on, Kim," says Saul. "Blow on me, call me an idiot. Let me know you still have a pulse.” Is this the first time Kim has spoken to Saul Goodman?

"Do you want me to say something," she says. "You should turn yourself in."

bam There it is.

"I don't know what kind of life you live, but it shouldn't be too much," she continues.

"Said the pot to the pot," Saul snaps before going on a rant about everything from Lalo to his business. He calls her a hypocrite and tells her to turn herself in, as she is the only one with a guilty conscience. He doesn't give her a chance to respond, and when she finally does, her response is simple: "I'm glad you're alive."

You can see her facial expression almost turning into fear during this part. She listens to Jimmy, the man she loved, but something is wrong with the man... is he a little more... an idiot? Is that the right word? Viscous? A little butt? Normally I like Saul, but this scene made me see him through the eyes of an outsider and it's brilliant.

As Saul wrecks the phone booth, we see Kim take a long moment to collect her thoughts. A knock on the door pulls her into the main room, where she sings "Happy Birthday" with the other classmates. (The birthday boy's shocked surprise is hilarious.)

After the break, Kim is seen waiting for a bus. Two figures approach and wait with her. (Maybe something, maybe nothing. My paranoia is through the roof.) She heads to a familiar spot: the Bernalillo courthouse, where she walks through the metal detector with the other guests and waits in line for an elevator. She looks at a lawyer who engages his client. As usual, Kim doesn't show any emotion, but we know what she's thinking: We're a long way from the good old days.

She finally jumps on the elevator... where exactly? Does she make a deal?

The scene shows Cheryl Hamlin alone in her house. A bell sounds. it's Kim She enters the Pearly Gates (towards salvation?) and meets Howard's wife. The meeting begins silently. Kim pushes a piece of paper towards the woman, who takes a moment to read the long document.

as expected,allExists. Jimmy and Kim's plan to ruin Howard, along with his death at the hands of Lalo.All.

Cheryl sighs. "Howard was murdered? Why?"

"He was in the wrong place at the wrong time," says Kim, before adding that Howard didn't suffer, as if that was any consolation.

"He didn't suffer," Cheryl replies. "The lies you two made up? The picture you painted? That's all he is now. That's all anyone remembers."

"I want to change that," says Kim.

Cheryl asks if Kim will go to jail. That's up to the district attorney, says Kim. Yes, she filed her statement. I honestly feel bad. And while my first thought is screaming, "Damn it, Lalo!" I know better. Jimmy and Kim dug their own grave. You got deeply involved with the wrong people and ruined many lives in the process. As Kim told Jimmy a while back, they were too busy having fun to think about the repercussions.

Chances are, the district attorney won't charge you for not having any physical evidence. So, Cheryl asks, why are you doing this? We didn't get an answer, but I suspect it's because Kim wants to A) cleanse her soul or B) save Jimmy from Saul.

Once again, and I've said it many times this season, congratulations to Rhea Seehorn on her incredible performance. The bus ride scene where shein the endfalling apart is... easy, wow. heart touching. Everything seems to hit her at once - guilt, shame, regret, sadness, fear. Everything comes up. Damn, what an achievement.

Now we're back with Saul literally breaking into the cancer victim's home. As our captain expected, your final target is passed out on the ground. (A strange thought occurred to me: Saul looks like he wants to be caught. He doesn't have the strength to turn himself in and prefers to drown in a blaze of glory. Note that he doesn't even try to hide his footprints in those robbery scenes, his fingerprints are all over the place.) damn room!) Saul gets to work and gathers all the information he needs. He is about to leave when something pulls him back into the house. He goes upstairs and we see our cancer victim move... uh oh. Saul wanders around the second floor picking up some cigars and drinks. He finds some watches, puts them in his pocket, and notices an urn containing a dog's ashes.

Outside, Jeff sees a pair of lights come on behind him.

Back at Saul, he peers over the banister - the target is gone. In fact, he's in the bathroom at the bottom of the stairs. Saul takes the urn...

... outside, Jeff sees the car parked a few meters away: a car...

(Video) BETTER CALL SAUL Season 6 Episode 12 Breakdown, Breaking Bad Easter Eggs & Ending Explained

… Saul sneaks up to the crabeater with the urn, but breathes a sigh of relief when the man passes out again. Saul goes to the door, sees the car and goes back inside.

There is a large part of the patrol car with two police officers in it. We hear one of the officers ask the other, "Would you take a look at this?" We assume he's talking about Jeff's car. "What would you call it? Could someone call it a fish taco?" Yeah, he's just talking bat The pair clearly don't know about Jeff or Saul, but our main characters don't.

After a long slap (and a long conversation about fish tacos), Jeff appears to be panicking. His taxi sped off and he crashed into a car parked nearby, much to the police's surprise. The alleged criminal gets out of the car and looks helplessly at the officers - and Saul, realizing the situation, runs away.

Backbreaking BadIn the timeline, Kim is sitting in Saul's office, silently filling out divorce papers. Francesca appears. The three characters silently perform their actions. (Well, I guess the call wasn't the first time Kim has met Saul.) Finally, Saul asks, “What do you think? Very good, right?

"So Florida," he continues. "Because there?" Before she can respond, he adds, "You're going to be sorry you didn't take your share of the Sandpiper's money. That would buy you a bunch of swamps."

She gives him a confused look, almost stunned at the man he's become.

"Have a good life, Kim," he says, casually dismissing her.

Kim gets up and looks like she is going to say something, but decides against it and leaves. We catch a familiar sight: Kim smoking a cigarette. The camera pans slowly and... we see Jessie leaning against a nearby wall. (I honestly expected this, but man... what a moment.) Jessie walks away into the rain and then asks, "You're a lawyer, right?" He says he recognizes her. "You defended my friend Combo. Cristiano Ortega.

After more talking from Jessie, he asks, "Is Goodman the real deal?" He has an assistant (Emilio) who confronts him in real time. "That guy," Jessie asks again. "He is good?"

"When I first met him, he was," Kim responds ruefully.

After the break, we go back to the future with Saul sitting alone on a bench waiting for the bus. (That's whereSaulcollide withNobody?) He jumps out of the vehicle and gets into the car. He drives home. He drinks some liquor. Hang up the phone and wait. It does what Jimmy used to do: summon calls with your fingers. It somehow works.

"Hey Dad, it's me, it's Jeff," says Jeff at the police station.

Saul plays along.

(Video) BETTER CALL SAUL Season 6 Episode 12 Theories And Predictions Explained

"That's no big deal," says Jeff. "They think I committed a robbery."

Saul asks if he had any of the stolen goods when the police arrested him. "No," replies Jeff. Then there is nothing to be afraid of. Saul assures Jeff that he will have the best legal representation. So he calls Marion, maybe a little too arrogantly. He offers to pick her up in an hour, but something is wrong with Marion. Why would Jeff call Saul instead of her? And how does this guy know so much about the legal system?

After hanging up, she pulls out her sleek laptop.

Saul drives his car and happily sings "The Tide is High" by Blondie. He knocks on the door. No answer. He finds himself inside and scares Marion, who had the headphones on. What did she hear? Saul quickly finds out: an old Better Call Saul commercial. (The commercial reflects her glasses, no less colorful. Nice details.)

Ultimately, all Marion had to do at Google was "Scammers in Albuquerque." Saul appeared, larger than life. She picks up the phone to call the police. Saul takes her phone and grabs the cord like he's going to strangle her. Saul is many things, but not a murderer. Marion taps the life alarm around her neck. Saul warns them to stop. "I trusted you," she says.

This statement seems to bring Saul back to life. Maybe he didn't want to get caught. Maybe he just thought he was untouchable... a god who walked among mortals. The big criminal the police never found. Everyone else - Heisenberg, Mike, Lalo, Gus - died, but not the great Saul Goodman. At least until now.

The life alarm triggers a response from an operator. Marion exclaims that a criminal is right in front of her. Saul looks really hurt. He runs to the door and - leaves the credits.

Wow. That was a lot to process. Honestly, the best way to describe these final episodes is like a waking nightmare. Away from each other, Kim and Saul were trying to start over in the usual way. But just like Chuck warned, Saul will do italways beSlippin' Jimmy, a con man with a penchant for criminal behavior. He can't help it. He lives to cheat. And that may have cost you a lot of time.

I'm honestly surprised that Kim lasted this long without passing out. Apparently, his attempt at reincarnation (sort of) wasn't enough to get rid of his guilt. However, for the most part she seemed to be fine. I'm sure her work and marriage redundancy(?) made it easier to contain her inner turmoil and she may have changed at some point.

Ironically, it is a phone call from Saul that convinces her to confess. Again, I think her change of heart is accompanied by a desire to save Jimmy. She looked at Saul Goodman quite surprised and looked even more shocked during the phone call. Maybe she knows he's never going to stop until he's dead and wants to avoid another needless murder... we'll have to wait until the end of next week to find out, but geez, we're ready for the finale.

Final thoughts on Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 12

So yes, I was wrong. This episode was definitely not filler. It's not thatYes reallyWe will. Like 1+ fine. How crazy was it to see Kim in Saul's office talking to Jessie? Of course, the part felt very fanservice, but also very natural. the worlds ofBetter call Saulebreaking Badcome together in a way that should make every other prequel green with envy. This is brilliant stuff.

As for Saul, I still feel sorry for him. Yes, Jimmy did turn into a criminal, but only because the world just wouldn't allow him to go straight. Chuck remains the main catalyst for Jimmy's downfall (and his death clearly hit Jimmy psychologically), but Kim's overt "betrayal" was the final push. Does he deserve to go to prison? Probably. Like I said, Saul is a terrible man, but Jimmy was actually a decent guy who needed a strong moral figure to guide him home. Chuck, Howard and Kim weren't strong enough to carry Jimmy on their backs; and everything collapsed under his negative influence.

(Video) Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 12 Breakdown, Spoiler Review & Episode 13 Theories!

So I think Kim will try to rectify the situation by acting like a sturdy rock that Jimmy can hold onto in his distress - or the person she should have been in the first place.

This is my reading of things. What do you think will happen in the final episode next week? Good theorizing!
