Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 10 Recap: Gene takes out the trash

This post contains spoilers from The best of Saul on demand Episode 610 “Nebe”

The phrase that kept running in my mind while watching tonight’s episode of The best of Saul on demand It is a “bottle ring”. However, when I researched the term, I discovered that it meant something a little different than what I had in mind. According to Merriam-Webster, a bottle ring A “cheaply produced episode of a television series usually limited to one location.” Too bad Produce one of the most acclaimed Bottle Episodes in history with season three “He flies,” Which unfolds almost entirely inside Gus’ underground lab where Walter and Jesse work on a batch of blue methamphetamine.

Tonight’s episode, “Nebe,” wasn’t cheap, and it wasn’t limited to one location. Far from it – there’s even a cornfield, for heaven’s sake. But it’s kind of self-sufficient in a way that looks like a ring from the bottle. It picks up on events from previous seasons, which, quite frankly, many of us might have a hard time remembering, given the way they’ve been laid out in the form of cool, secluded slots. (This is a video Summarizing the complete schedule of Jane Takovich, In case your memory is as choppy as mine.) But the episode also has its beginning, middle, and end, in a way that leads us to wonder: Why are we watching this? What do you tell us about the bigger story?

We will return to those questions. First, let’s examine what happens. As we know from previous episodes, Gene Takovich is Jimmy McGill’s character after Saul. It’s an identity created, for a very large sum of money, by vacuum repairman Ed Galbraith (whose card Jimmy and Kim appeared earlier this season in The Quirky Vet’s Little Black Book). Gene runs Cinnabon at Cottonwood Mall in Omaha, Nebraska. His life seems incredibly bleak, but at least he’s safe—that is, until his lunch break was interrupted by a taxi driver and former Albuquerque resident, who identified him as Saul Goodman. This discovery prompts Jane to contact Ed Galbraith and ask for it re-disappeared, But then he thinks better: “I changed my mind. I will fix it myself.”

This brings us to the beginning of this episode, where we find ourselves in the company of… a comedy legend Carol Burnett! You play Marion, a somewhat fierce and fiercely independent elderly woman who talks through a very cute co-worker named Jane Takovich on her way home from the supermarket when, mysteriously, a gap in the ice prevents her from going up the sidewalk. Jane posts signs announcing he’s lost his dog, Nippy, when he “helps” Marion – by completely deactivating her chair. If we thought the shock of his Albuquerque ordeal left old Sleepy Jimmy without his signature skill set, well, we were wrong. Jamie/Saul/Jane is more charming than ever, and before long Marion is sitting with him at her kitchen table, tossing her over a bottle of schnapps peaches.

That’s when her son, Jeffy, comes home. We can infer from Jeff’s expression – and his jacket, in theory – that he knows Jane from somewhere. What we can’t do is recognize his face, because… the actor who played the cab driver who spotted Saul at the mall It had to be reformulated. So for a few moments, this was more confusing than it should have been, but anyway – new actor, same character. This is the man Jane has to deal with to protect his cover.

Once Jeff gets to get Jane on his own while taking out trash (Jen does a lot of trash taking out in this episode), he confronts him: “Dude, what the fuck is that?!” That’s when Jane set out on one of the con artist’s most time-honored maneuvers: Neutralization by Embedding. In other words, your target implicates a crime so you can use it against them if you have to, thus ensuring their silence. “Mutually Assured Destruction,” Jane later said.

You don’t need to go through every turn and figure out how this happens. Suffice to say, it’s as elaborate and fanatically planned as any Jimmy/Saul scam we’ve seen before. The suspense comes from (a) finding out what he plans to do, and (b) knowing when and how he plans to burn Jeff.

The plan itself is silly, but wonderful. In short, Jeff will have three minutes to steal a bunch of expensive items from a department store in the same mall as Jane Cinnabon. To practice, Gene built a life-size floor plan in the middle of a frozen cornfield and had him run the drill. (“There’s nothing to see here, officer!”) There’s a complicated trick that involves a wooden shipping crate, and strict rules about portion control to avoid detection by inventory managers.

The biggest challenge is getting the security guard on duty to look away from the cameras for those crucial three minutes. To achieve this, Jane begins bribing the guards with candy cookies and then spends a significant amount of time – weeks at least – building a relationship with Frank the night watchman. Frank loves to talk about college football, so Gene becomes an expert on the traditions and disobedience of the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Finally, the important day comes. And the approx Everything goes according to plan – until, with only a few seconds left in the three minutes allotted to him, Jeff slips and hits his head on the floor. For once, Jimmy/Saul/Jane doesn’t know what to do. Until he does: he starts crying. Moaning about being alone in the world. Frank, who was so far a leaked Gene fan, she’s clearly averse to this snow show, but what’s the difference? This is the end of the process. Surprisingly enough, he works long enough for Jeffy to recover and finally escape.
