‘Better Call Saul’ Season 6: Vince Gilligan Admits 1 Mistake in Penultimate Episode

<p>As <em><a href="https://ift.tt/6nTewED Call Saul</a> </em>Season 6 nears the finale, all the pieces are coming together. The penultimate episode “Waterworks” explained what <a href="https://ift.tt/qzhMWAN (Rhea Seehorn) said to Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk)</a> on the phone. Kim also returned to Albuquerque to resolve issues, and Jimmy spiraled further into his latest crime plan. Yet, Vince Gilligan, who wrote and directed “Waterworks” feels he made a mistake. </p> <p><strong>[Warning: This article contains spoilers for the </strong><strong><em>Better Call Episode </em></strong><strong>“Waterworks”.]</strong></p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-full"><img loading="lazy" width="1200" height="800" src="https://ift.tt/C2q7i3P" alt="'Better Call Saul' penultimate episode: Vince Gilligan directs Rhea Seehorn in coffee room" class="wp-image-3126589" srcset="https://ift.tt/C2q7i3P 1200w, https://ift.tt/hT92m4w 150w, https://ift.tt/he9tmiS 640w, https://ift.tt/pP9szQC 768w, https://ift.tt/T5ulmvE 1024w, https://ift.tt/AuBghlF 90w" sizes="(max-width: 1200px) 100vw, 1200px" /><figcaption>L-R: Rhea Seehorn and Vince Gilligan | Greg Lewis/AMC/Sony Pictures Television</figcaption></figure> <p>Gilligan was on a Television Critics Association panel with co-creator Peter Gould and stars Odenkirk and Seehorn on Aug. 10. Looking back on the series, Gilligan’s biggest regret was from his most recent episode. The <em>Better Call Saul </em><a href="https://ift.tt/ZvfVr48 finale airs Aug. 15</a> at 9 p.m on <a href="https://ift.tt/kB8hJWT" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">AMC</a>.</p> <h2>Vince Gilligan wishes he’d finished ‘Better Call Saul’ Season 6 with 1 detail</h2> <p>The end of “Waterworks” saw Jimmy orchestrate a plan to get Jeff (<a href="https://ift.tt/9EU2kDH Healy</a>)’s mother (<a href="https://ift.tt/Sa4UTpJ Burnett</a>) to bail him out of jail. Jeff had been the getaway driver for Jimmy but drove off in a panic and had an accident in front of a police cruiser. That call should not have been on a landline. </p> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-video is-provider-youtube wp-block-embed-youtube wp-embed-aspect-16-9 wp-has-aspect-ratio"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <div class="jetpack-video-wrapper"><iframe loading="lazy" title="What's your favorite Kim moment from the past 6 seasons? | Better Call Saul | AMC" width="925" height="520" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/noaaWGhMMtM?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> </div></figure> <p><strong>RELATED: <a href="https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/better-call-saul-karaoke-complicated-bob-odenkirk-singing.html/">‘Better Call Saul’ Karaoke Was More Complicated Than Bob Odenkirk Singing</a></strong></p> <p>“In this last episode, which I’m very pleased with and it was a group effort as they all are, I realized Gene should’ve been talking at the very end in the final act, he should’ve been talking to Jeff on his bluetooth earpiece,” Gilligan said. “Because we had made a point in the previous episode that he was back to being Saul with the earpiece. I dropped the ball when I wrote the episode.”</p> <p>Gould’s regret was simpler.</p> <p>“I would’ve had Rhea Seehorn and <a href="https://ift.tt/ZO97WYV Esposito direct</a> episodes a lot sooner,” Gould said.</p> <h2>Vince Gilligan had a big ‘Breaking Bad’ regret before ‘Better Call Saul’</h2> <p><a href="https://ift.tt/wMl9e3K Paul also appeared as Jesse Pinkman</a> in “Waterworks,” meeting Kim outside Jimmy’s Saul Goodman office. That speaks to another regret Gilligan had before <em>Better Call Saul.</em></p> <p>“In <em>Breaking Bad</em>, Aaron Paul’s teeth were too perfect,” Gilligan said. “This poor guy just got the living sh** kicked out of him time and time again storywise, and also he smoked a lot of meth and his teeth were just like Cary Grant perfect. Maybe I’d change that a little.”</p> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-rich is-provider-twitter wp-block-embed-twitter"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="550" data-dnt="true"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Best quality vacuum repair. <br><br>The series finale of <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/BetterCallSaul?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#BetterCallSaul</a> premieres Monday at 9pm on <a href="https://twitter.com/AMC_TV?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@AMC_TV</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/AMCPlus?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@AMCPlus</a>. <a href="https://t.co/qiXuMsmXxW">pic.twitter.com/qiXuMsmXxW</a></p>— Better Call Saul (@BetterCallSaul) <a href="https://twitter.com/BetterCallSaul/status/1557001752859140096?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 9, 2022</a></blockquote><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> </div></figure> <p><strong>RELATED: <a href="https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/better-call-saul-season-6-final-episodes-directors-went-to-master-class-in-black-white.html/">‘Better Call Saul’ Season 6 Final Episodes Directors Went to ‘Master Class’ in Black & White</a></strong></p> <p>However, Gilligan said he’s not going to make a special edition of <em>Breaking Bad</em> with worse teeth. </p> <p>“I’m not going to do that George Lucas stuff,” Gilligan said.</p> <h2 id="h-the-x-files-contains-a-major-regret-too">‘The X-Files’ contains a major regret too</h2> <p>Gilligan got his start writing for <em>The X-Files</em>. There’s one episode he looks back on with regret. </p> <p>“The thing that bugs me from <em>The X-Files</em> tops those other two,” Gilligan said. “I wrote an episode called ‘Folie a Deux’ and I had Mulder, who’s a really smart guy, say, ‘It’s not Helsinki Syndrome.’ It’s Stockholm Syndrome and I realized I was quoting <em><a href="https://ift.tt/UWgnaRv Hard</a></em> where the idiot reporter says Helsinki syndrome. That one bugs me.”</p> <p>In <em>Die Hard</em>, news anchor Harvey Johnson (David Ursin) tries to look smart on TV discussing the Nakatomi hostage crisis. An author describes the Helsinki Syndrome and Johnson mistakenly says Helsinki is in Sweden. </p> <p>“Later, David Duchovny who is a really smart guy said, ‘Was that a riff on <em>Die Hard</em>?’” Gilligan said. “I said, ‘What do you mean?’ He said, ‘Helsinki Syndrome. It’s Stockholm Syndrome’. I’m like oh sh**. Still, every time I see that episode, which is not often, but it makes me just cringe.”</p> <p><strong>RELATED: <a href="https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/better-call-saul-season-6-saul-planned-call-francesca.html/">‘Better Call Saul’ Season 6: How Saul Planned the Call With Francesca</a></strong></p>
