‘Better Call Saul’ fans are shocked by the mid-season cliffhanger

And that’s how you make a cliffhanger.

“Better Call Saul” fans who watched the shocking midseason finale, “Plan and Execution,” were horrified by a violent climax in Monday night’s episode. Unlike other rabid fan bases who tweet or intentionally shout out spoilers, followers of the Bob Odenkirk-led show were left speechless.

After the airing of Season 6 Episode 7, viewers took to Twitter just to express their disbelief at the life-and-death bombshell revealed on the show, a moment that will surely change the trajectory of the second half of the final season.

“And you want me to go to bed afterwards?!?!?!?!!??! I feel like I need therapy.” wrote a shocked fan the horrifying final scene while another complained of having to wait six weeks for the sequel to the Breaking Bad prequel in July.

Some fans even suggested that Better Call Saul cemented its place in TV history — alongside Breaking Bad, of course. (By the way, “BB” stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will be appearing in the final episodes of Season 6.)

“No spoilers, but this moment in tonight’s #BetterCallSaul rivals anything in Breaking Bad. This show really is next level.” they write.

“I feel like I just witnessed one of the greatest episodes of a series in television history.” added another. “Imagine writing a prequel to one of the most popular television series of all time – in which the fate of each main character is widely known – and still leave audiences speechless.” another satisfied fan reported.

A startled viewer joked that she now understands why 59-year-old Odenkirk, who plays the title character, suffered a heart attack during filming in July 2021.

“I totally understand why Bob Odenkirk had a heart attack while filming this season. Christ,” She wrote.

The actor promised ahead of Monday night’s episode that jaws would drop, too.

“Tonight…I promise you FIREWORKS, the stunning way…on #BetterCallSaul.” he tweeted.

Odenkirk wasn’t the only one to promise shock and awe, either.

“I bet a lot of people are going to yell at the TV,” Patrick Fabian, who plays Saul’s enemy and nemesis Howard Hamlin, told Vanity Fair.

If there’s any screams, fans might be waiting to see the cliffhanger resolved when the show resumes on July 11 on AMC for its final season.

“My heart can’t handle all these emotions” wrote a fan. “What a phenomenal episode and a masterful way to end the first half of the season. I can’t wait for July!”

Showrunner Peter Gould told Entertainment Weekly that the other shoe will indeed fall.

“A lot of this story is a story of unintended consequences,” he laughed. “The episodes are just beginning, let’s put it that way.
