With only two episodes left, fans are looking forward to seeing how Better Call Saul Season 6 will end in the post-Breaking Bad timeline of Gene Takovic (Bob Odenkirk). As teased by Odenkirk himself, there will be changes happening in the penultimate and final episodes.
Fans saw how Gene broke bad in the previous episode after presumably talking to Kim (Rhea Seeehorn). So, will he continuously turns bad or will someone stop him in Better Call Saul Season 6?
Fighting the Demons Inside Him
In an interview with Deadline, Odenkirk touched on Better Call Saul Season 6 finale.
Though he mostly talked about the difference between Jimmy and Saul, carefully not giving anything away, he mentioned how his character would come through in the end.
“He’s actually very much confronting the demons inside him in the last four episodes of the season,” he hinted about the series’ ending.
He then went on to talk about playing the two characters of Jimmy and Saul.
“I discovered that Saul is a much easier character to play than Jimmy. The last couple episodes, he becomes a much richer character again,” he continued. “He’s no longer hiding behind that facade, and he’s actually very much confronting the demons inside him in the last four episodes of the season.”
Will Gene Change in Better Call Saul Season 6 Finale?
As Odenkirk reveals Gene is still facing the demons inside him, it just means that he’s not yet done doing it.
Episode 11 saw how he broke bad after running “elaborate schemes” to earn more money. According to Screen Rant, this major change may affect the last two episodes of the series.

If Gene wins over the demons inside him, he may change and have a happy ending. But if not, knowing his conscience carries the death of Howard (Patrick Fabian), his bad side may triumph and he’ll lose.
If it happens, will he suffer the same fate as Walter White (Bryan Cranston), who broke bad himself? Anyhow, there are also theories that someone may save him from his own self, not Kim but Marion (Carol Burnett).
Marion May Save Gene from His Demons
Despite his intention to just use Marion to get to Jeff (Pat Healy), it can’t be denied that Gene has respect for her.
In fact, they have already developed a sweet relationship. However, Marion is a smart woman and can’t easily be fooled.
So when she saw Gene in the garage with Jeff and the latter’s friend, Ricky (Max Bickelhaup), she knew something wasn’t right.
This might hint that Marion would learn of Gene’s real intention and personality and a possible confrontation between the two might bring Gene back to his senses.
Whatever the case is, fans should wait and see what will happen in the last two episodes of Better Call Saul Season 6 when it drops on Monday on AMC and Tuesday on Netflix.
