    I thought he did buy the bottle? Was in queue with it when he saw judge in sling. I assumed that the cap he kept was from that bottle?



  • Registered Users Posts: 29,907 ✭✭✭✭ Penn


    There was a shot of the bottle in the box left on the shelf where Saul was standing, showing that Saul left the bottle and ran out to call Kim (or also avoid being seen by the guy).

    Presumably the bottle will be purchased again later.



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,370 ✭✭✭✭ gormdubhgorm


    That is a good theory on Kim’s motivation. I was just thinking she enjoys the thrill. Was even disappointed on missing D day as it was.



  • Registered Users Posts: 29,907 ✭✭✭✭ Penn


    I still care about the Lalo V Gus story even just to see how it ends, how Mike and Gus beat Lalo and how Lalo ties in with Saul like you say. The only thing dragging it down at the minute is that Lalo is too far separated from Gus/Mike at the moment to the point where Gus/Mike are just left waiting, and we're spending so much time watching Lalo trying to get evidence about something we already know, and that Lalo already suspects enough that it feels pointless going to these lengths.

    Hopefully next week being the mid-season finale means it'll properly kick into gear.

    It was last seen that Kim took the bottle cap from her previous office (there is a drawer scene, forgot what season now, or i remember wrong lol). Thats why I am saying that presumably if the cap we saw in the flashforward at the mansion is the same one Kim took from office - that means no new bottle was bought.



  • Registered Users Posts: 29,907 ✭✭✭✭ Penn


    Yeah that's a fair point too, I'd forgotten that one.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,032 ✭✭✭ mcburns07


    Can't believe we're already at the mid season break next week. Feels like a lot of setting up is being done and all hell will break loose from Ep8 on.

    Such a good show.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,773 ✭✭✭ EltonJohn69


    Watching the episode lsat night I was thinking this show could almost be a graphic novel wth the way the shots are framed. There were so many interesting framing choices in just the first scene with Howard. I assume only now with such small cameras available can shows now look like this.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,490 ✭✭✭ DeepBlue


    I assume with the first half of the final season devoted to Jimmy & Kim vs Howard that we're not really going to see much of Saul in his post Breaking Bad life? I'm not invested in their scam on Howard and tbh it doesn't make a lot of sense to me either in motivation or execution.

    They have teased a lot of "Gene" in previous seasons and now it seems that they've dropped the Gene version of Saul completely. That's a disappointment.

    They certainly haven't dropped Gene. They used to have small Gene scenes at the start and maybe end of each season to give hints about Saul's future. Given that this is the final season, they're spending more time now completing the story of his past and setting things up and providing the info we will now need for the rest of Gene's story.

    The show is about how he became Saul. Whatever happens to him post-Breaking Bad is more a bookend of his story as a whole, so it'll probably only be an episode or so at most. But the show has always been more about his pre-Breaking Bad life as well as the other characters like Kim, Mike, Gus etc. I think things like how they're going after Howard are still just yet to play out fully so it's hard to properly determine their motivations for it.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,789 ✭✭✭ SimonTemplar


    I think Gus or Mike will kill Lalo in the underground lab and Gus's story in BCS will end with him visiting Hector to gloat about Lalo's death.



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,155 ✭✭✭ JeffKenna


    I presumed that's why Gus hid the gun in the lab the previous episode. Lalo will meet his end there and was more than likely buried there during the whole of Breaking Bad.



  • Registered Users Posts: 332 ✭✭ RickBlaine


    For the second half of the season, I'm very curious to see how much of it is spent in the pre-Breaking Bad timeline, how much is spent during the BB timeline, and how much is spent in the post-BB (Gene) timeline. I'm even more curious to know if Kim is still part of Saul / Jimmy's life during the BB timeline.



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,556 ✭✭✭ Snake Plisken


    So I'll post this preview . Again for those who don't watch trailers for the next episode PLEASE DON'T WATCH

    Some interesting theories going on here




  • Registered Users Posts: 1,708 ✭✭✭ NickNickleby


    Don't know how to selectively quote your post, but sure its just a little bit of typing, so:

    "PLEASE DON'T WATCH"

    Duly noted!!! 🤣🤣🤣.



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,556 ✭✭✭ Snake Plisken


    Glad you got the message 🤣

    Also this will be directed by Thomas Schnauz who directed episode 9 from Season 5 (Bad Choice Road) which had the tense meeting between Lalo at Kim and Jimmy's apartment. He directs some of the important episodes.



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,556 ✭✭✭ Snake Plisken


    Why post it you just let out a major spoiler for the next episode it's. up there in the thumbnail😲

  • Registered Users Posts: 29,907 ✭✭✭✭ Penn


    There's no spoiler in the thumbnail. Even if the name in the book is that person, there's no indication that that person will or might appear in BCS, let alone in the next episode. It's just showing how Saul got most of his contacts that he used in Breaking Bad (like the vacuum repair guy).



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,370 ✭✭✭✭ gormdubhgorm


    Exactly it is only speculation and lists a number of characters/contacts. We don't know which will or will not appear and when. But we do know the little black book will play a part at some stage. All it was a translation of a list and speculation as to who would appear from the list and when. We already know many of those on the list already from BB.

    The speculation could be correct or incorrect, or partly true, but as of now it is only fan theory speculation.

    Still think that YouTube thumbnail should be removed from your post as if he does appear then it ruins it for those who don't want to know anything.



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,370 ✭✭✭✭ gormdubhgorm


    Fair enough done - I just left the youtube link instead now.

    But I still fail to see how it ruins anything. It is speculation and some of these characters are bound to make an appearance anyway! It is a prequel afterall. I found it gas that someone went to the trouble of translating it. The BCS writers just love leaving bits of info to invite speculation in the show. Regardless of how obscure. What fans or writers would go to so much trouble for any other series?



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,155 ✭✭✭ JeffKenna


    If you click on the YouTube link then it's your own fault. No spoilers in their post.



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,556 ✭✭✭ Snake Plisken


    Thanks for doing that and yes he could appear in it but the actor hasn't confirmed if he is or not. I'm also staying well away from Reddit for the next week to avoid someone leaking whats going to happen.

    You are right it could just be a red herring thrown in to troll the fans



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,370 ✭✭✭✭ gormdubhgorm


    No bother, as I said myself before I avoid previews unless I have seen the episode.

    Speculation though, is fair game though as far as I am concerned. As it big part of the craic of the programme.

    There are all sorts of angles to consider. Hints, red herrings, lighting, colour choices camera shots etc. No doubt some will be miles off, some close, and some few will have considered. I still expect the writers to come up with a subtle plot twist.

    I am starting to think their continuity is so good because they work backwards from the ending. Plus have copious amounts of notes on potential angles from BB.



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,556 ✭✭✭ Snake Plisken


    Maybe for the second half of the series we should open a small speculation thread that way we can speak freely about what theories are floating about there is a photo in the video I posted that could be a major spoiler for next week's episode I hope it doesn't come to pass what it looks like but then again it could be the crew and actors trolling us



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,370 ✭✭✭✭ gormdubhgorm


    It is a fan speculating. It is NOT a spoiler. It is only a spoiler if someone says what WILL happen. NOT what COULD happen. Big difference.

    If there was a speculation thread this thread would be very quiet. This show is all about speculation which is incredible in itself - given how we know how most of the characters turn out. I think that is testament to the way it is written.
