The popular Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul, has ended after six seasons.
In Season 6, Episode 12, ‘Waterworks,’ A flashback scene from 2004 shows Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) going to Saul’s office to get her husband to sign the divorce papers. When she steps outside, a cloud forces her to stand beneath a pergola, where she speaks briefly with Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul ) a character from the world of Breaking Bad.
The show’s creator, Vince Gilligan, discussed his motivations for entering this scenario.
The reasoning behind the sequence between Kim and Jesse in Better Call Saul was discussed by Vince Gilligan.
It was amusing. We all wanted to see a scene with the two partners of the two series. We thought it would be delightful to see Kim Wexler and Jesse Pinkman together. What would it be like? How the hell would they be together? How would their paths cross? And we came up with the idea of having him share a cigarette while it was raining.
As the discussion continued, Gilligan discussed what it was like to work with Aaron Paul once more on Better Call Saul.
It was terrific to work with Aaron again. We shot in cold weather and artificial rain. And anyway, artificial rain is as bad as real rain when you have to stand there for nine, 10 hours straight. It was a tough scene, but I loved it so much. There is no more important purpose to the story than why we needed these two characters together. I think the idea delighted us. We wanted to see those two worlds meet.
