All the BCS episodes where he's Gene Takovic, Cinnabon manager occur after the events of Breaking Bad. He's in hiding in Nebraska because he's wanted by the law back in New Mexico.


I'ma quit tryna sequence the shows and just enjoy the now.

At the end of BB the vacuum shop guy disappeared both Walt and Saul. Saul made mention of becoming a Cinnabon manager in Omaha.

Also, during this episode Saul referred to Walt without naming him directly.

That show took place in October 2010 referenced by the football games being discussed with the security guards. Breaking Bad ends around September 2010.

I don't see a conclusion to BCS. What happened to KIM? I'm shallow, clue me.

She's working at a sprinkler supply store in Florida. He called her from that phone booth. We weren't privy to the conversation, only to his reaction to it -- he beat the handset on the receiver and then kicked in the side of the booth.

The conclusion to BCS will be "what happens to Jimmy/Saul/Gene?" The last two episodes saw him slip back into the con life, even though he was so careful earlier to avoid any attention -- remember in the season opener a few years ago he stayed the night in the mall's trash area when he locked himself in, rather than call for help? And remember he nearly disappeared himself again when he was first recognized by the cab driver? Now he's slipped right back into the groove.

Of course, this show (and BB) always finds new ways to twist things, but I'm guessing it's going to be his downfall. Remember, Carol Burnett got up to see what was going on when he went to admonish his crew for not finishing the job. The obvious idea is that she will alert authorities, but again, this show will be sure to twist it somehow.

^ Whoa that's Carol Burnett?! I haven't thought of her in 35+ years. Family used to watch the Carol Burnett Show as a kid all the time.

This show is so sad.

Jimmy is a more sympathetic character than Walter White. He is not able to deal with grief (death of Chuck, Howard, losing Kim, etc.) so he falls into these cons and playing these characters of Saul/Viktor to cope.

This will not end well for him.

It was already sad enough when we saw Jimmy fully transformed into Saul two episodes ago, and it is just going to kick me in the nuts again at the finale for sure.

Anyone that was hoping for a happy reunion with Kim in the end, there's just no way.

Yeah, I think Feds catch up to him courtesy of Carol. I can see her finding out the name Saul Goodman and googling it on her new laptop that Jimmy taught her to use.

The "inaudible” conversation in the phone booth is actually pretty audible in the German dub. Here is what is said (caution, heavy spoilers).
spoiler


German: „Du hast keine Ahnung was ich getan, oder nicht getan habe, okay? Wieso stellst DU dich nicht, auf mich musst du keine Rücksicht nehmen, ich kann nur EINMAL gehängt werden. Okay, hör zu, Kim, wieso reden wir überhaupt darüber. Wir beide sind zu clever…

English translation: (The beginning is inaudible…but it’s mid-sentence and he is already upset about what Kim must have said): “(…) you have no idea what I did or didn't do, okay? Why don't YOU turn yourself in, you don't have to be considerate of me, I can only be hanged ONCE. Okay, look, Kim, why are we even talking about this. We're both too smart...“

Vince Gilligan was on the after show for BCS talking about this. The line in BB about Ignacio and Lalo was a throw away line that was never meant to lead to anything. It was the writers who convinced him to build on it in BCS.

Of all the cartel guys in BB and BCS I think it's only one of the Salamanca twins who survived everything (albeit without legs), right?

Nope. Both died in BB.

Hank killed one when they tried to assassinate him. The one who was crushed by the car and lost his legs was killed by Mike while in the hospital.

When Kim left Jimmy at Howard's memorial I thought she was done with the lifestyle she was living with Jimmy. Her morals kicked in. She's moved on. yep yep yep.

The inaudible telephone conversation was heard in its entirety. Jimmy said well why don't you turn yourself in? I was kinda surprised when she did. I don't think she was in BB.

Carole Burnette put Jimmy on the scoot. Good-bye, Jimmy, hello Saul. Can't wait for the finale.
