Review: Better Call Saul (Season 4)

  • Written by Destructoid

The path to redemption is not necessarily a straight line—rather, it can be sinusoidal instead. With Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) in Better Call Saul, his journey as a con-man trying to turn into a genuinely good person is full of twists and turns, with opposition coming from forces who believe he will never change. And it's perhaps because of these forces that Jimmy will be reduced into the very monster these people think him to be.

Season 4 of Better Call Saul does not skyrocket us into the Saul Goodman we know from Breaking Bad, but there are indeed shades of Saul throughout. Perhaps it is because of this slow burn that the transformation we witnessed before our eyes was all the more terrifying and tragic.
