Rhea Seehorn: ‘Better Call Saul’ finale gave ‘hope, love, redemption’
WARNING: Spoilers ahead for the series finale of “Better Call Saul.”“Better Call Saul” ended its six-season odyssey with Jimmy/Saul/Gene (Bob Odenkirk) sentenced to 86 years in federal prison, where he bid an emotional goodbye to ex-wife Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) — but not before exonerating her, in a final colorful courtroom flourish, of any wrongdoing in covering up Howard Hamlin’s execution-style death several years earlier.“I saw the [finale] for the first time Monday night,” Seehorn told The Post Tuesday. “I watched it with a couple of people from the show and loved ones and significant partners and it was very moving.”Monday night’s finale, “Saul Gone,” included scenes from all three timelines in the “Better Call Saul” universe and featured surprise appearances from Marie Schrader (Betsy Brandt) — the widowed wife of “Breaking Bad” DEA agent Hank Schrader (Dean Norris) — and, in a flashback, Chuck McGill (Michael McKean), Jimmy’s brilliant-yet-troubled older brother who killed himself in the Season 3 finale of “Better Call Saul.” Walter White (Bryan Cranston) also materialized in a “Breaking Bad” flashback.The episode turned its main focus on Saul’s shattered relationship with Kim, now living a drab, boring life in central Florida designing brochures for a sprinkler company and sporting shorter (and dark) hair.

‘Better Call Saul’s real finale: Bob Odenkirk’s emotional message to fans
Netflix.Fans of the hit “Breaking Bad” spinoff were hit with the final episode, titled “Saul Gone,” on Monday.Odenkirk, 59, helmed the spinoff as Saul Goodman for a total of six seasons, which followed his initial four seasons on “Breaking Bad.” And to mark the end of an era for Goodman, initially known to fans as James Morgan “Jimmy” McGill, and later by the alias Gene Takavic, actor Odenkirk shared a two-minute clip on social media.“Everybody’s been asking me how I feel about saying goodbye to Saul Goodman and ‘Better Call Saul,’ and I’m not good at answering the question because it’s frankly hard for me to look at that experience, and even at that character, too closely,” the unabashedly emotional actor told fans in the video.Finale thank you from Bob Odenkirk pic.twitter.com/IFODl4bcLDOdenkirk thanked the show’s co-creators for letting him front the spinoff and for “giving me the chance.”“I did nothing to deserve this part but I hope I earned it after six seasons,” he said.He said the cast, consisting of Rhea Seehorn, Michael McKean, Jonathan Banks, Tony Dalton, Michael Mando, Patrick Fabian and Giancarlo Esposito, “made me a better actor than I am, just working with them.”“Watching them work has been an unbelievable experience,” added Odenkirk, who famously survived an on-set heart attack in July 2021 that nearly killed him.“Thanks for giving us a chance, because we came out of maybe a lot of people’s favorite show ever — and we could have been hated for simply trying to do a show,” Odenkirk went on.“But we weren’t; we were given a chance, and hopefully, we made the most of it.

Bob Odenkirk has “great sympathy” for James Gandolfini wanting his Tony Soprano role to end
The Sopranos, citing exhaustion from inhabiting a character’s emotions for so long.The Better Call Saul star, who reprises his role as Saul Goodman for the Breaking Bad spinoff’s sixth and final series this year, made the remarks in a new interview.He told The New York Times that he’s ready to part ways his character, admitting that it’s “challenging” to let go of a role he’s portrayed over a decade.“I always used to scoff and roll my eyes at actors who say, ‘It’s so hard.’ Really? It can’t be,” Odenkirk told the publication of taking on a dramatic role.“[But] the truth is that you use your emotions, and you use your memories, you use your hurt feelings and losses, and you manipulate them, dig into them, dwell on them. A normal adult doesn’t walk around doing that, going, ‘What was the worst feeling of abandonment I’ve had in my life? Let me just gaze at that for the next week and a half, because that’s going to fuel me.'”Odenkirk added: “It gave me great sympathy for someone like James Gandolfini, who talked about how he couldn’t wait to be done with that character, and I think Bryan [Cranston] said similar things: ‘I can’t wait to leave this guy behind.’ I finally related to that attitude.”Despite his wishes to move on, Odenkirk said that Better Call Saul has “been the biggest thing” in his life.“It’s emotional to say goodbye to it, and to all these people I’ve been working with for so many years,” he said.
