One Of Better
Call Saul's Final
Scenes Was A
Callback To The
First Episode
Now that the final episode of "Better Call Saul" has aired, aficionados of the series may have noticed a certain amount of symmetry between the first and last episodes of the show. One of the first scenes shared between Kim and Jimmy involves sharing a cigarette, and oddly enough, one of their last scenes together echo this early moment.
Speaking with Variety, it was brought up to series co-creator Peter Gould that the interactions between Jimmy and Kim form almost a perfect plot circle. Gould answered, "Having the two of them against the wall, smoking, passing that cigarette back and forth, felt very much like a way to say that they've reached an agreement.”
The scene in question involves Kim using her non-expiring lawyer license to see Jimmy in prison. Most of their conversation in the scene relates to Jimmy finally accepting responsibility for his actions, which turns his rather cozy seven-year sentence into one that spanned multiple decades.
