FIND THE SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION OF THE END OF EPISODE 12 OF SEASON 6 OF BETTER CALL SAUL! SPOILERS!
Better Call Saul is now on Netflix! Continue reading for an explanation of the ending of Season 6 Episode 12!
Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul’s guiding principle is pessimism about redemption: once characters like Walter White and Jimmy McGill go wrong, they are lost forever, sliding so far down the slippery slope that their old self is a distant memory.
They take on the role. Walter transformed into Heisenberg, and Jimmy transformed into Saul Goodman. Part of what makes these shows so compelling is when they rediscover pieces of their humanity and take noble action, but that isn’t the same as fully admitting their wrongs. Read this to find out how many episodes there will be.
That is far from the case. As a result, they find themselves in an extremely lonely situation, with no allies, no conscience, and imprisoned by the roles they have chosen to play. Kim Wexler is the exception in tonight’s riveting episode, though her redemption is fascinating.
All parties involved in her and Jimmy’s situation have vanished in the six years since she divorced Jimmy and moved to the Florida coast to work on catalogs and brochures for a sprinkler company.
Despite their relationship, we’re far more interested in finding “Saul Goodman” than Lalo, Mike, and Gus. This week, however, we finally get to hear the phone conversation that so upset Jimmy in the previous episode. Here is a summary and explanation of the end of Episode 12 of Better Call Saul Season 6!
SUMMARY OF BETTER CALL SAUL SEASON 6 EPISODE 12!
We find Saul Goodman in his office, the monument of justice designed by the woman waiting for him in his lobby. He relies on Saul more than ever now that she has returned to file for divorce.
He’s rude, obnoxious, and cruel on purpose, so Kim takes matters into her own hands and leaves.
Kim and Jesse’s interaction this week was far superior. Not only do we see Jesse Pinkman again, but we also get this interesting scene with two characters who are at very different points in their journeys with the Albuquerque underworld. Read on to learn everything there is to know about the release of Episode 13.
Kim has been living a quiet, boring domestic life in Florida since she left with the divorce papers. Every night, I sign office birthday cards, talk about the similarities between mayonnaise as well as Miracle Whip, and do a puzzle. When a familiar voice calls, the facade crumbles.
Kim is shocked and terrified to hear the voice on the other end of the conversation from last week’s episode. Jimmy masks his true feelings once more by being aggressive and pushy with Kim, and then when she suggests he turn himself in, he immediately becomes defensive and questions why she never did the same. Rhea Seehorn has always been this series’ secret weapon, but she is transcendent in this episode.

She returns to Albuquerque to confess, of course. She walks past a young defense attorney who appears to be a looming threat to the person she once was as she delivers her confession in court. She then departs to inform Howard’s widow of the truth.
The scene between Kim and Cheryl at the end of Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 12 is difficult to watch but brilliantly acted. Kim retains her lawyer’s stone face and steely demeanor.
In Florida, the truth gnawed at her, forcing her to live the smallest, hollowest version of her life. When she finally manages to get everything off her chest, she emotionally unloads on a public bus, sobbing as if she’s been waiting years to do so.
Meanwhile, in Omaha, Gene lingers too long in Mark’s house at the end of Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 12. Gene nearly resorts to violence to flee but is saved when his target falls asleep again before he can alert the authorities.
This suspenseful sequence is only topped by the scene in which Jeff looks nervously at the cops parked behind him and discovers that they are innocently eating takeout.
That’s why Marian’s capture of Jimmy/Saul/Gene is so satisfying. Jimmy is cocky and believes he is unbeatable.
It’s just a long-winded reaction to his phone call with Kim. He hasn’t even considered Marian’s ability to bring him down. He forgets that making someone like Marian the target is never a good idea.
