If ‘Better Call Saul’ is known for its serious tone, then it’s also famous for giving viewers really funny sequences as well. It might look funny to us, but it has a lot of weightage on the show. The battle between Howard Hamlin and Saul Goodman or Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) has reached an interesting juncture, forcing people to choose sides. If you have been following the show closely, you know the plans that have been made by Saul and Kim to sabotage Howard.

However, we all knew that a day will come when something really bizarre is going to happen in that storyline. It seems today was the day when their feud finally reached a boiling out. As soon as Cliff confronted Howard (Patrick Fabian) about what happened during last week’s episode, Howard assured him that it was not him who pushed a prostitute out of his car. He asked Cliff about his meeting and Cliff revealed that his meeting was with Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn). Well, it didn’t take much time for Howard to realize what was happening.

Howard told Cliff that he has a problem and it’s called the “Jimmy McGill problem”. He called his assistant and told her to cancel everything for a week. Later that day, Saul was called to a place to meet one of his clients Mr Ward. It turns out it was Howard who called him to end all of this and the outcome will be decided via a BOXING MATCH. Fans just could not believe that they are witnessing a special moment here. They could not help themselves and applaud the makers for such a fun scene.

The scene ended with Howard ending the fight with an uppercut KO. Jimmy was unable to continue and Howard said that he should not take his “kindness” for “weakness”. It’ll be interesting to see how Saul takes revenge, but he has another thing to be worried about. Hamlin has hired a private investigator for Saul and will be tracking all of his movements.

Things just got interesting between Saul and Howard.
