After six tremendous seasons (and a Breaking Bad run, of course), Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) is finally bidding adieu. We’ll find out how his story ends—miserably, let’s assume—in the Better Call Saul series finale. Hopefully, the episode also checks in one last time with Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) and how things turned out for her in Florida after the most recent trip to Albuquerque. The A.V. Club will recap the hour and run a roundtable breakdown of the finale.

The show also stars Jameela Jamil, Renée Elise Goldsberry, and Ginger Gonzaga, with featured appearances by Mark Ruffalo as Bruce (a.k.a. Hulk), Charlie Cox as Daredevil, and Tim Roth as Abomination. The A.V. Club will recap episodes weekly.
