    All 5 episodes have been terrific, but the hype, the stakes, the urgency and the tension are no near the level of Breaking Bad, I think that, sadly, the show will remain emmyless. I also don’t see it strong enough to maintain momentum for next year, I think that the important nominations will be the same as this year – drama, writing, Bob and Rhea, best case scenario. If the finale is legendary and breathtaking, it might maintain a stronger momentum, but a win? Don’t think so.

    “Breaking Bad” was all stakes – plot heavy, full of twists and thrills with characters facing dangers, dilemmas and enemies throughout the entire series. “Better Call Saul” is just not that.

    Yes, you are correct, but is impossible to not compare them, everybody is doing it, especially now that both are complete.

    You definitely got the wrong synopsis, it’s from Tales of the Walking Dead.

    Great ending to a great series. I like that it never tried to be Felina. It reminded me of the homeland ending for some reason. A future for the characters that was unexpected but so perfect.

    Now that it’s all said and done, notable guest eligibility

    Guest actor: Giancarlo Esposito, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Tony Dalton, Michael McKean

    Guest actress: Besty Brandt

    So Anna Gunn was only one that didn’t guest on show from main character apart from son. I had hoped that they would get her in some how. But was pleasantly surprised by Betsy appearance

    A brilliant finale. And it will age incredibly well too. Once the psychos dig into it and dissect it, it will become one of the greatest ever. So much better than the Breaking Bad finale. Even if I think Breaking Bad was still the better overall show.

    Jimmy’s back.

    What a beautiful ending. I’m going to miss this show so much.

    That cigarette scene…

    I loved it. As said here, the episode doesn’t try to be Felina, and it’s wonderful because of that.

    Rooting for Bob Odenkirk at the 2023 Emmys.

    Is there precedent for a drama to get major Emmys for its final season, after winning absolutely nothing with them the rest of its run?

    Hasn’t happened this century.

    Now that Better Call Saul is over, what do you think about the chances of these final episodes influencing voters this year? I could be mistaken and confused some details, but this seems to have happened in 2013 with the final episodes of Breaking Bad airing in the same voting period that culminated in the victory of the first half of Season 5.

    Voting for this year’s Emmys began on August 12 and will end on August 22.

    Nice finale. I think things ended the way they needed to for the most part. I was expecting something much more sinister and less sentimental, b/c some photos surfaced of Gene in a hospital gown, so that led me to believe that Gene was finally caught and ended up dying in prison (the “Saul gone” part). This took on an entirely different and ponderous route, which was no less fulfilling by the end. Bob Odenkirk really shined here, and all the callbacks and cameos were tastefully done. I doubt this episode will help Odenkirk much with current Emmy voting, or be remembered for his overdue Emmy thirteen months from now. The thank-yous to the very loyal fanbases of “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul” over these many years were the chef’s kiss! Wish more departing series did this instead of a cold fade-to-black. The “Talking Saul” episode from last week was also a nice sendoff to the cast and crew. End of an era, folks!
