Better Call Saul’s Breaking Bad crossover lastly arrived, but it surely might have performed out otherwise with an alternate scene being thought-about.
Warning: This article incorporates spoilers for the newest episode of Better Call Saul.
In a mirroring of the previous, Better Call Saul’s episode titled “Breaking Bad” noticed the long-awaited arrival of Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul to the sequence. The motion returned to the “Krystal Ship” RV and the second Saul Goodman turned the lawyer of Walter White and Jessie Pinkman within the Breaking Bad episode known as “Better Call Saul.” In a brand new interview, the episode’s author Thomas Schnauz defined that the episode nearly performed out otherwise. He informed AMC Blog:
“We were looking for a spot — where [in the timeline] do we show Walter White return? For the longest time we talked about the moment where Brandon Mayhew’s uncle walks through the door and tries to hire him, but that didn’t seem quite right or dramatic enough. Looking back at all the different scenes, we realized it was the space between the kidnapping and when they’re planning how they’re going to save Badger and that just seemed like a real sweet spot to fill in, ‘What do these guys say to each other after the attempted kidnapping during that awkward ride back?’ And in this case the ride back is filled with an awkward RV stall and they have to sit uncomfortably together in the dark looking at each other.”
Now Was The Right Time to Bring Walter White and Jessie Pinkman Back to Screens
Schnauz additionally went on to elucidate why it appeared like there was cause to deliver the Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul exhibits collectively proper now with the return of Walt and Jessie. He continued:
“In the episode, Gene reverts back to his Saul Goodman ways and we wanted to draw a parallel between who Saul was in the past and who Gene is and the reasons he became Saul. In episode 609 we do the 2001 [A Space Odyssey] moment with the bone turning into the spaceship, where Kim breaks up with him and tells him about how she kept the truth from him about Mike and Lalo being alive, and then he goes full Saul Goodman. He needs to do something to numb the pain of the past and being Gene isn’t going to do it. So we wanted to see Saul in the past and see Gene now and see the steps that made him go towards Walter White, where Mike advises him to ‘let it go’ but he can’t because he’s got something inside him nagging at him that he needs to do something bigger and badder to numb the pain of what’s happened in the past. So this just seemed like the right episode to flash back and forth between the Saul Goodman times, the Walter White times, and comparing it to what’s going on in Gene’s world.”
Better Call Saul is now heading into its closing episodes, with the penultimate episode airing on Aug 8, with the final ever episode, “Saul Gone,” set to premiere on Aug 15, bringing the newest addition to the Breaking Bad universe to an in depth. Where the franchise heads subsequent is presently unknown, however it’s seemingly that we haven’t seen the final of those characters simply but.
