If you’re watching the Better Call Saul Season 5 finale tonight, then you might notice that the episode lasts significantly longer than expected. AMC sometimes has longer episodes for the show and tonight’s finale is one of those. Read on to learn what time Season 5 Episode 10 starts tonight and what time it ends.
The New Episode Starts at 9 PM Eastern & Ends at 10:25 PM Eastern
Tonight’s episode starts at its regular time of 9 p.m. Eastern (8 p.m. Central.) But the show is lasting an extra long time tonight and it’s ending later than you might expect. The episode ends at 10:25 p.m. Eastern (9:25 p.m. Central.) This also means that if you watch Dispatches from Elsewhere on AMC, it’s going to start later tonight than you might expect, at 10:25 p.m. Eastern and ending at 11:30 p.m. Eastern.
So this means the Better Call Saul finale is 85 minutes long (including commercials), a full 25 minutes longer than a typical hour-long episode. This is pretty long for a Better Call Saul episode. It’s even longer than the Season 5 premiere, which was 76 minutes long. But it’s about the same length as the Season 4 finale, which was also 85 minutes long.
Here are some sneak peeks for tonight. There will be spoilers for previous episodes below this section of the story too.
Here’s another video.
And here’s the trailer.
Tonight’s episode is called “Something Unforgivable.” The description reads: “Kim and Jimmy make a sideways move that takes a rather serious turn. Nacho gets closer to the cartel.”
Last week had one of the most intense endings of Better Call Saul so far. Lalo, whom we know is alive and well in the Breaking Bad timeline, discovers that Jimmy lied about his car breaking down. He doesn’t know the rest of the story, but he does know that he found Jimmy’s car in a ditch with bullet holes.
He goes to confront Saul and finds him at home with Kim. Mike is outside with a gun trained on him, but we know that he’s not going to kill Lalo. In Breaking Bad, we never see Lalo but Saul is scared of him and thinks Lalo is the mastermind behind his kidnapping in one scene in the series. So we know that Saul and Lalo will survive the scene, and that leaves everyone fearing for Kim. But Kim — despite speaking her mind to Lalo — ends up surviving the scene too.
During the episode, it’s also revealed that the assassins who fired on Jimmy are from a Colombian gang that Mike knows from Philly. Gus also seems pretty familiar with the tattoo symbol that represents the gang.
At the end of the episode, Lalo leaves again to cross the Mexico border with Nacho driving the car. Despite Mike’s attempts to speak up on Nacho’s behalf to Gus, Nacho will never be free of the “game” that he’s in. And now it seems that Kim is all caught up in that game too. It’s still a mystery why we never hear about Kim in Breaking Bad. Did she and Jimmy divorce after having a big fight over something? Is she killed by the cartel or someone else? Does she run off with the cartel? Really, there are a lot of unanswered questions. Maybe some will be answered tonight.
