"We Own This City" by HBO?
idk just seems like standard copaganda, i only watched 10 minutes and bored
I like how the dumbest BCS theory about Marion finding Saul's commercials on youtube
ended up being correct lmao
For a second I thought the show was heading toward some redemptive or happy conclusion for Jimmy, but by the looks of things the final episode is going to be really really fucking sad
Also the fanservice this episode was annoying as fuck imo. I thought it was a pretty clever and somewhat subtle way to connect the storyline to BB by having Emilio show up right as Kim is leaving Saul's office, and then Aaron showed up blurred in the background which, while kinda cringe, could have still worked – but when he got closer and started talking to Kim like "Yo bitch this Saul Goodman guy, you think I better call him or some shit bitch?" I actually laughed out loud, it's so stupid and blatant fanservice lmao. It doesn't help that Aaron looked like 50 years older
I love the slow pace and depressing atmosphere of these last few eps, reminds me a little of Twin Peaks S3. I don't actually know how they're gonna tie everything up neatly next ep but
Well, she didn't really end up catching him by accident really. She was already really suspicious of him and that little information nugget he blurted out confirmed her suspicions and after that it was simply a matter of connecting the dots, it makes sense she'd easily find his commercials on the internet given that he's a most wanted criminal and that his face had been everywhere for months after his escape following BrBa.
I can understand finding the Jesse and Kim scene cringe, but somehow I liked it myself. It wasn't like a completely deep and introspective scene or anything, it was just funny seeing Jesse completely oblivious to what was going on behind the scenes and it served to show how much Saul was trying to show Kim that he wasn't hurt by their breakup.
Still though, poor fucking Kim. I didn't know she could somehow have a life that's even worse than Saul/Gene's, she didn't deserve this. Also Gene was absolutely terrifying by the end of the episode, nearly strangling that old lady
was an absolute low for him that I never thought he could reach.
Fantastic episode and stellar performances all around.
Everything that happened was his fault lol.She got the computer with the money from the mall heist, and Gene kept going for new shit with Jeff, despite knowing he was from Albuquerque and knew who he really was. There were plenty of things that should have warned him away from continuing to interact with these people.
It's a lot like Walt just not being able to let things go.
Surprising that Jimmy actually made a good point to Kim, in spite of his intentions, being the one to tell her to come clean if she feels so guilty.
Pretty ironic. Presumably it'll come together in the finale.
Tbh this scene with Jesse felt more organic to me than the previous scene with Saul, Walt, and Jesse. It also served the purpose of giving Kim the opportunity to show what she thought of Jimmy to someone she doesn't know and would have no reason to deceive. "Who you are in the dark" if you will. It also gets the ironic twist that because she is still holding onto her positive opinion of him and gives him a half-hearted recommendation to Jesse, she unknowingly helps lead to his downfall. I think they mostly put the scene in there to make up for her complete absence from BrBa and the impression that she had no impact on the story in any direct way.
So I actually re-watched the entirety of BB+El Camino before the 10th episode of S6 of BCS. Very curious thing I noticed is how somehow, at least personally, I still keep rooting for Jimmy and what contrast it is when compared to Walt. Like… Jimmy is a complete piece of shit, maybe even more so than Walt, and really this was already how I felt about him since BCS S4 or S5. But it always comes with a big dose of "cmon man, just chill and fix your life, you don't have to do this", and a hope that it will all work out for him. Now compare this to Walt. I came in this binge spree for BB expecting to hate him but… I really didn't up until S5 where he chimps out about selling methanol. I dunno, maybe its the foreknowledge that he will (in)directly kill Hank, Mike and Alexandra, but when he starts to become obsessed about his legacy, and those per-existing entitled asshole character traits take hold, he really just died as a likeable character in my eyes and despite knowing how it goes, I was kinda rooting that he would maybe get killed before the finale. Now, the finale did do a good job to at least partially "redeem" him, but more in the sense that he realized what a massive piece of shit monster he became, and decided to at least set something right before the end.
But with Saul it just hits different. From basically the first or second BCS season he is that piece of shit where his worst traits control him like they eventually controlled Walt, but as I said, I can't help but root that maybe he manages to overcome them. Maybe its because he doesn't ever get anyone killed, until S6, but even then that death is more just an unlucky accident that wasn't Saul's fault. Even as Gene, same shit - he just can't manage to live without his antics. Really, he just seems like an addict, same as Hanks wife I'd say, and its clear he isn't doing it because of money, just for the adrenaline rush and to feed his obsession.
Well, I do hope that somehow the final episode manages to pull out a decent ending for him. As for my bets what will likely happen:
>Pointless avoidable death while running away, eg car crash
>Surrenders and maybe manages to squeeze out a non-lifetime sentence, while being supported by Kim
>Show runners actually do the completely unexpected, banal, but also realistic ending where he gets caught and jailed for life
