Really? Not Bilquis? Anansi? Ibis? Anubis? Salim? The Jinn? The characters whose individual short scenes have been hailed as being signature scenes of the entire show, impactful and revolutionary?
But nope, its Fucking Laura.
I could never love anyone as I love you, Anne. Thou. Wait. You love me? Of course I do. Why don’t you know that? Oh, I thought you liked me, of course, but I never hoped you loved me. I love you devotedly, Anne. And I will always love thee, Diana. In the years to come, your memory will shine like a star over my lonely life.
This is a more rewarding part than that. So, yes, I would miss the part that I’m playing now. I don’t think there is an extended period of time that we’ll be enjoying Saul’s ridiculousness. I think there will be a story to tell there, though. We’re not quite there yet. With Chuck gone, that is one of the two big things that are connecting him to humanity, and the other being Kim. When those pillars fall away, he’s in freefall. We’re fairly close to that. And then there’s some story to tell as Saul. Peter and Vince and I talked, and as a viewer myself and a fan of their storytelling, I want to understand what happened with Saul and Mike, and Nacho and Lalo, who I’ve never met, none of us have met, that leads to all the stuff that goes on in Breaking Bad.
Also, frankly, I would like to see what happens to Gene, the character Saul is post-Breaking Bad. I hope they’ll give some story to him. I think they will. They’re talking about it. So I don’t know how much time is left, but I will and do already feel bad about saying goodbye to the very likable and, I think, good-hearted Jimmy McGill.
Contrast and Comparison: Blue Velvet x Twin Peaks: The Return. I always assumed when Jeffrey Beaumont concluded his time in Lumberton he joined the FBI as Dale Cooper. Laura Dern can never stop Kyle’s characters from walking down those dark roads.
