This article contains predictions for Better Call Saul season 6, episode 12.
Past and present merge in episode 12 as we see finally see more of the Breaking Bad timeline that we have all craved. Here is a summary of what happened in the last episode:
- Episode 11 opens with Jimmy (as Saul) getting kidnapped and put before a ditch in the Breaking Bad timeline.
- In Gene’s timeline, Saul gets in touch with old colleague Francesca and learns about the downfall of Walter and what happened to Jesse and Skyler.
- Saul tries to get in touch with Kim by ringing the place she works — the camera pans out, and Saul is frustrated as he shouts down the phone. We never hear this conversation.
- In Gene’s timeline, Saul speaks to Jeff. He wants him to get some barbituates. They scam wealthy men. Saul befriends morally corrupted rich men at bars and gets them drunk. Jeff then takes these wealthy men back home in his cab and gives them water spiked with barbituates. Buddy then heads inside their home and takes photos of their IDs and financial information. Afterward, they sell this information to criminals.
- Back to the Breaking Bad timeline; Saul is with Walter White and Jesse Pinkman; they are trying to hire him in their motorhome (that’s also their meth lab). Saul is impressed with their small set-up to make the trendy blue meth, but Walter wants to get down to business. As they wait for the fuel pump to cool down so the motorhome engine can get going, Jesse asks Saul who Lalo is because he mentioned that name when he was spooked out. Saul brushes it off.
- As we reach nearer to the end of episode 11, Saul meets another wealthy man at a bar as part of the Gene timeline. The man seems reasonable and morally balanced — he reveals he has cancer, which throws Saul off slightly; however, he still leads the man to the cab as part of the plan.
- In the Breaking Bad timeline — Saul is enjoying his lawyer life, and Mike visits him for a meeting. Mike breaks down all of Saul’s clients, including Walter White. He reveals that Walter has lung cancer. Mike tells Saul to stay away from him because he’s “an amateur.” Saul has an intuition about Walter, but Mike dismisses his idea about him, revealing how much they underestimated the chemistry teacher.
- In the Gene timeline, Saul meets his men; they backed out of scamming the wealthy man with cancer. Buddy is not comfortable with it. Saul fires Buddy for not agreeing to go ahead with the plan. Saul tells Jeff they need to finish the plan, so they head back to the rich man’s house.
- As the episode closes, it returns to the Breaking Bad timeline as the chapter starts mirroring Saul from the past and present. Saul visits the school Walter teaches at. There’s a science fair. Episode 11 then flits back to the Gene timeline, and Saul breaks into the wealthy man’s house.
