Like Breaking Bad, the “Better Call Saul” ending is presented in two parts: “Plan and Execute” and “Point and Shoot”. We see not only that Jimmy and Kim’s plot against Howard has finally come to fruition, but also the finale of the Lalo saga. After his defeat at Sandpiper’s moderation, Howard goes to confront Jimmy and Kim at their apartment. After Howard’s magnificently venomous (but still eloquent) tirade, the tone immediately changes with the arrival of Lalo Salamanca. Lalo, feeling no remorse or thinking about this complete stranger, shoots Howard dead.

Using Kim and Jimmy as a bait/distraction, Lalo then goes to confront Gus Fring in the laundry room, ie. to a secret methamphetamine lab (which is still ongoing). Always a sadistic showman, Lalo takes Gus at gunpoint and forces him to give a tour of his secret pet project on camera. This leads to Gus taking a page from Nacho’s playbook and speaking his true thoughts to the camera. In a vicious tirade, brilliantly executed by Giancarlo Esposito, Gus tears apart the entire cartel system, directing additional anger at the Salamancas. He gives his opinion, but he’s also a distraction: when he gets the chance, Gus turns off the lights and unloads the bullets from a full magazine, finally killing Lalo. In a cliffhanger, it is revealed that both Lalo and Howard are buried in the same grave under Gus’ meth lab.
