A feeling of inevitability permeates "Weidersehen," a surprisingly mellow and melancholy penultimate episode beautifully realized by Vince Gilligan and Gennifer Hutchison's creative reunion.
As with every episode of Better Call Saul, this show never lacks when it comes to disappointment. The fact that this week's installment delivered that in a unique way, however, is to be respected.
If last week made us hopeful for Jimmy and Kim's future, "Wiedersehen" completely ripped away any excitement we might have felt for our once dynamic duo.
Kind of heartbreaking to see Kim excitedly make a "World's Greatest Lawyer Again" travel mug for Jimmy, along with buying him a shiny new legal briefcase, in anticipation of him getting reinstated.
You've heard of Chekhov's gun? This is like Chekhov's arsenal.
This story reveals passions that have been largely absent from the season at large.
Kudos to director Vince Gilligan and writer Gennifer Hutchison. This episode has taut suspense and unexpected, intelligent release for days.
The tragedy of James McGill is that he has thoroughly internalized the fatalism he ascribes to others.
With the luxury of at least four seasons of prequel, Breaking Bad creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould are leaving no stone un-mined for a backstory in Better Call Saul.
There was nothing subtle about this one. They laid it all out for you right there on the screen, right down to wide shots so you recognized the nursing home and super-tight close-ups on the bell-ringing finger. It was awesome. I whooped a little.
This is only [Vince Gilligan's] fifth directorial credit for Saul, and it remains a pleasure to watch the ones where he's behind the camera.
