The final season of Better Call Saul has arrived in all its grimy, morally ambiguous glory. Through its first two episodes, Saul focuses on the moral and societal identity of its main characters, using parallel storylines to both blur the lines between good and bad and highlight their subtle differences. Already at the end of a second hit AMC series, this premiere is a ballet by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, gracefully tiptoeing towards an explosive finish line (while also leaving room for possible spinoffs set in the same universe). The producer duo has, again, masterfully towed their characters along an empathetic but ethically questionable line that seems to be stretched further and further as we learn more about them. Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul’s characters are vivid introspections of survival tactics used in American Society; the shows themselves represent two sides of the same coin polished and embellished to keep the Nielsen ratings high.
