Going On During
Better Call Saul's
Convict Scene?

THIS STORY CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR "Better Call Saul" Season 6, episode 13.


"Better Call Saul” came to a poetic end on August 15 with its series finale, "Saul Gone," and in one of the memorable scenes from the episode, Jimmy is recognized as Saul Goodman by one of his fellow inmates, who then leads the others in chanting his old slogan: "Better Call Saul." Here's what series co-creator Peter Gould had to say about what that moment means for Jimmy.
In an interview with Variety, Gould explained that there are two meanings behind the scene — firstly, there's the fact that, as much as Jimmy wants to leave that persona behind him, he'll always be Saul Goodman in the public's eye. The only person that still sees him as Jimmy is Kim, who greets him as such when she comes to visit him in prison.
Secondly, Gould wanted to showcase the reality of Jimmy's life in prison. He explained, "We wanted to give a feel for what he's actually going to experience and the suffering he's in for is pretty much the suffering he deserves."
