At the end of tonight’s episode, Gene Takovic was found out by Saul Goodman, and it was all courtesy of Carol Burnett’s character of Marion! It is ironic that early on in the series, Jimmy made a name for himself by exploiting the elderly. Meanwhile, it is an elderly woman who ends up being his downfall. He underestimated Marion’s ability to figure out the truth and after she used her Life Alert to call the police, Gene now has to run. There is no other option for him.

Based on the promo below, Gene is going to try and contact Ed the Disappearer a.k.a. the Vacuum Repair Guy to get out of this situation. The problem? There is no guarantee he is still there. We know that Robert Forster is tragically no longer with us, and Gene could be met with a dead end.
In the end, this is not a universe where happy endings are often granted. As entertaining as Jimmy / Saul was at times, this is still a guy who did terrible things. Kim has worked to find some measure of accountability now, but there is no guarantee that he will ever do the same. Even if he gets arrested in the series finale, is he really going to have a worthwhile future?
What do you think is going to be coming on Better Call Saul and the series finale?
