'Better Call Saul' Season 6 Episode 13: Is it over for Saul? Albuquerque lawyer arrested for every misdeed he has done
The series finale of ‘Better Call Saul’ has begun and things are already looking bleak for the former best lawyer in Albuquerque. For more than years, Saul has been manipulating people to get what he wants, but it seems the time has come to face the consequences. In the ending moments of the penultimate episode, Saul, aka Gene Takovic (Bob Odenkirk), visits Jeffy’s mother, Marion. He goes inside her house to tell her that her son is in the prison and they should go there to help him.
Marion lets him in and shows him what she was watching on the laptop. It turns out she now knows about Gene’s reality. She was disgusted by what she saw and didn’t want to let him go. She called the police and told them everything. Saul (Odenkirk) ran as hard as he could and got back to his home. He took some things from his house and tried running away. At first, we thought that he was going to run away but there came a point when he was surrounded by the police because every cop in that town was looking for him. There was a ton of evidence against him already and this call by Marion just gave the authorities a chance to nab him.

So, when he was surrounded by the police, he went inside a large trash bin and hoped that the police won’t catch her. Unfortunately, they did because they saw him getting in because of a CCTV camera. The police have Saul’s custody now and he knows that he is screwed up. He calls one of his workers and tells her that the outlet would be needing a new manager because he is not coming back. Police threw him into solitary confinement and there he gets an idea about calling someone that might help him.
He calls Bill Oakley to help him and names him his Advisory Counsel. Even though he knows that he has very little chance of walking away, he took that. When Bill arrived and they sat with the other party, we got to know that Saul has multiple charges against him, including money laundering and murder. It was revealed that he might be serving life + 190 years behind the bars. But you know, how good Saul is at faking things. So, he told a story about how he met Walter White and Jesse Pinkman and how they killed so many people. The reason that he couldn’t do anything about those killings was that he knew that if he did something, Walter White would kill him instantly. The lawyer from the other party asked him if the jury would buy all this and Saul replied, “I only need one”.
As of now, he is willing to do anything to mark himself that would not let him see the sunlight.
