The midway cliffhanger of Better Call Saul season 6 is a force to be reckoned with - here's our full breakdown of how "Plan & Execution" is planned and executed.

When AMC first announced Better Call Saul's final season would arrive in two chunks, comparisons to Breaking Bad were immediate.

A doozy of a cliffhanger was promised, but could the spinoff match Hank Schrader's bathroom epiphany that Walter White is Heisenberg?

Better Call Saul season 6's "Plan & Execution" marks the grand finale of Jimmy McGill and Kim Wexler's attempt to frame Howard Hamlin as a struggling drug addict unfit to practice law,

forcing a swift resolution to the long-running Sandpiper case, and taking the $2 million they're owed from the common fund. The scam has gone perfectly so far (more or less)

The final phase takes place during a Sandpiper mediation meeting, and Jimmy and Kim are ready to make their influence felt.

"Plan & Execution" is an intricate, hard-hitting midpoint finale to Better Call Saul season 6, and drops a hell of an exclamation point for audiences to freak out over before the last episodes

continues to set the stage for Gus vs. Lalo, and promises a darker ending than even Breaking Bad. Here's how and why everything goes down the way it does.
