Fast approaching its grand finale, Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul has become one of the most popular shows on Netflix
After six seasons, the Netflix series Better Call Saul has only one episode left after fan-favorite lawyer Jimmy McGill.
Bob Odenkirk will make one last hurrah as a corrupt lawyer, concluding the story of how Jimmy became Saul and Saul became Gene Takovic.
Better Call Saul is one of Netflix’s most popular shows – the mid-season finale was viewed more than 2.2 million times in the first three days of its release.
The latest episodes of Season 6 Part Two have focused more on Jimmy’s life after the events of Breaking Bad, set in a depressing black-and-white Nevada.
How many episodes of Better Call Saul are left?
The first half of Season 6 – episodes 1-7 – was released weekly on Netflix between April and May.
The show then went on a six-week hiatus before the second part of season six premiered in the UK on July 12.
As of today (August 15) there is only one episode of Better Call Saul left to watch.
Episode 12, reasonably titled Waterworks, came to Netflix in the UK on August 9th.
Episodes in the UK are released on Netflix the day after their initial UK release, and so is the finale, which airs this week.
When is the Better Call Saul finale out in the UK?
The very last episode of Better Call Saul to have a title now – Saul Gone – will be released on Netflix in the US on Monday 15th August.
It will be released in the UK the following day, Tuesday 16 August, landing on the streaming platform at 8am.
A synopsis for the finale has not yet been released, but given the ominous title and the fact that this is the last we see of Saul Goodman, the episode will bring the Jimmy/Saul/Gene story to a close.
What will happen in the season 6 finale?
Plot details for the final unaired episodes of Better Call Saul are still under wraps, but there have been some clues as to what might happen.
*Season 6 spoilers ahead*
The second half of season six has brought many characters up to their Breaking Bad timeline – Gus and Mike have now contributed everything they can to the show, so they probably won’t make any notable appearances in the finale.
Now that Howard and Lalo are buried under Gus’ lab, they won’t contribute either. The cameos with Jesse and Walt, while great for fanservice, didn’t add anything substantial to the story, and since Better Call Saul is Jimmy’s show, it would be odd if they had a different appearance.
The final episode will likely focus on clearing up Jimmy and Kim’s stories – Kim confessed to his wife in the final episode of her involvement in Howard’s death and is awaiting if charges will be filed against her.
Meanwhile, Jimmy freaked out after a scam gone wrong, almost strangled an old lady with a phone cord, but chose to run away instead.
The finale must therefore clarify what fate awaits the unhappy lovers.
