    Which One Had A Better Ending, ‘Breaking Bad’ Or ‘Better Call Saul’?

    AMC’s ‘Better Call Saul‘ finally came to an end. The beloved crime drama show reached its finale on Monday, August 15. It’s a spin-off of the highly successful ‘Breaking Bad‘ and tells the story of Saul Goodman/Jimmy McGill. Titled ‘Saul Gone‘, the final episode has received universal acclaim and is considered to be one of the best on television.

    This forces us to think about the ending of ‘Breaking Bad‘ which premiered around nine years ago. There are significant differences between both the show’s ending in terms of pace, character development, etc. It also comes from the treatment of the two shows that are thematically the same but different in other terms. But which ending was better?

    The series finale of ‘Better Call Saul‘ titled ‘Saul Gone‘ premiered on August 15. After a successful six-season and 63-episode run, the show came to a conclusion.

    (Spoiler Alert!) In the episode, Saul is caught by the cops and is charged with multiple cases related to the ‘Breaking Bad‘ events. He realizes that Kim confessed to Hamlin’s death. Saul discusses his charges with government officials but at the court, backs out and confesses his involvement with Walter White.

    Saul also admits his involvement in Chuck’s suicide and says that he is Jimmy McGill. He is sentenced to 86 years in a maximum-security federal prison. The show ends with Kim meeting him in prison.

    The final shot of the entire show has Jimmy and Kim on opposite sides with a fence in between. The poetic and tragic ending has met with critical acclaim. It is unlike the ending of ‘Breaking Bad.’

    Unlike its prequel ‘Better Call Saul’, ‘Breaking Bad‘ was more fast-paced and tense. With every episode filled with jaw-dropping twists and turns.

    Its final episode titled ‘Felina‘ was very different but equally tragic like ‘Saul Gone.’ The episode shows Walter White returning to New Mexico to fix all the loose ends.

    He comes back and threatens the Schwartzes family to place his remaining $9.72 million in a trust for Walter Jr. Walt then creates a moving machine gun with ricin and goes to meet his wife Skyler for one last time.

    Walt then meets Jack and the gun kills everyone. He and Jesse Pinkman are saved, Walt quickly realizes that he is shot. Jesse escapes as the cops arrive. Walt dies admiring Jack’s lab. So we can conclude that both the final episodes are powerful, emotional sad and satisfying in their own way.
