An excellent ending to a bittersweet season, "Winner" ties up loose threads while priming each of Better Call Saul's excellently drawn characters for the coming danger.
One of the most difficult hurdles in "Saul" is finding ways to braid the season's story strands, but it's brilliantly achieved in "Winner," which spells out a key ethos of the series: No one can escape the mistakes they've made.
Better Call Saul may never rival the epic bloodshed of its parent series, but the show is often devastating in more understated ways. And the show's existential dread has never felt more apparent than at Season 4's end.
The season four finale made it clear, though, that Jimmy was never a hero, and what we are watching is the origin story of a super villain.
I find myself dreading season five a little now because I'm not sure how eager I am to watch Jimmy completely turn into Saul Goodman - it's like death by a 1,000 papercuts - but I'm still here for Kim Wexler, and for Nacho.
Better Call Saul remains one of the best shows on TV right now. Not only did Jimmy change this season, he changed those around him - and for the worse.
But among the things Better Call Saul has done so powerfully is to make their pre-Breaking Bad incarnations so appealing, and so much more vulnerable than the guys who worked with Walt and Jesse, that the inevitable instead became painful.
Once again, Better Call Saul employs Kim, who holds the faith for Jimmy even after enduring some of his worst behavior, to represent us.
Winner was a reminder that there are still depths in Mike left to plumb.
As Better Call Saul shows us, the full journey of a person reckoning with their own demons can take decades.
It's the rare TV show whose future is already completely set in stone in viewers' minds, and yet Better Call Saul consistently finds ways to surprise us.
