We’re Finding Clues in Everything AMC Releases

With only a little more than 24 hours to go until Vince Gilligan & Peter Gould‘s Bob Odenkirk & Rhea Seehorn-starring Better Call Saul returns for the first of its final three episodes, it’s no surprise that fans are laser-focused on the rumored return of Walter White (Bryan Cranston) & Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) in the appropriately-titled S06E11 “Breaking Bad.” But let’s not take our eyes off the prize, and that’s figuring how what happens to Gene (Odenkirk) and Kim (Seehorn) in the post-BB universe. Because AMC released the image below again (previously released last week), along with the caption, “Tomorrow on a new [‘Better Call Saul’], it’s actually a bit nippy. Grab a jacket” on social media earlier today. Now, the “Nippy” part harkens back to last week’s episode and the understanding that Gene’s time with Marion (Carol Burnett) may not quite be done yet (more on that below). But because we have serious issues and are way too obsessed with figuring all of this out, we’re focusing on the choice of “jacket” over “coat” because it reminded us of an earlier theory we offered involving earlier-released key art and teaser.

Here’s a look back at the teaser “Suit Up,” which offers us a tour of the various stages of Jimmy’s life via his fashion- including his “Gene Takovic” time. But the last hanger is empty and seen swinging, so we wondered if that meant that it was the end of the line for Jimmy after Gene. Or did it connect with that previously-released piece of key art showing Gene either putting on or taking off that red sports coat (also below)? Could that swinging hanger be the one that the suit jacket was resting on? Well, we now know that Gene was willing to let “Saul” take control during the most recent episode and that his walking away from the shirt & tie wasn’t nearly as strong a renunciation of “Saul’s” ways as some would’ve liked. Are we getting a signal that “Saul” will be at the wheel sooner rather than later?

Now here’s a look at the teaser “Suit Up” which offers us a tour of the various stages of Jimmy’s life via his fashion- including his “Gene Takovic” time. But the last hanger is empty and seen swinging. Could that mean that it’s the end of the line for Jimmy after “Gene”? Or does this connect with that previously-released piece of key art showing “Gene” either putting on or taking off that red sports coat (see above)? Could that swinging hanger be the one that the coat was resting on? And if that’s the case, is it foreshadowing “Gene” rebreaking bad back to Saul? Take a look…

Based on the three images released last week (including the “jacket” image referenced above), it appears we will be spending at least some time with Gene (Odenkirk) as well as Jeff (Pat Healy) and Marion. And that’s where the possibilities multiply beyond just Walt and Jesse appearing. Could the title mean that Gene’s “breaking bad” and that his putting away the shirt & tie at the end of the last episode was just a temporary move? Or is Gene going to put Jeff and his friend/associate (Ricky, was it?) in a position where they continue with a life of crime past a point of no return? For some reason, I have this idea in my head that Gene’s going to end up having to go “Saul” to help or protect Marion. Here’s a look at the images, followed by a look back at our original, unedited initial promo thoughts in their original form:

“I get it. You get over it. Okay. Please believe me. Before you know it, you forget all about it.” That’s what we hear Jimmy/Saul/Gene saying, and the first assumption is that it references back to Jimmy & Kim’s conversation from before she left. But what if it’s from those off-screen moments when Jimmy was trying to sell her on not leaving? It gets even more interesting if Gene finds himself saying those things… maybe to Marion? Or the possibility that Gene is saying it to Kim? And then there’s the Gould/Gilligan factor, where they throw it at us in an unexpected yet masterful way. And as for the visuals? Well, as much as we like to think of Jimmy and the choices he’s made over the past five seasons when it comes to roads serving as metaphors for moral “forks in the road,” our brains always default to Kim. Because a Kim Wexler-focused episode would be kinda’ sweet… as we see where she went after leaving Jimmy… hmmm…
