Originally Recorded 2022/09/22
Sometimes, when I create these descriptions, I experience a little deja vu (have I written this already?). All of us are aware that #TalesOfTheWalkingDead is an opportunity to break out of the box of what people think is #TWDUniverse. With mixed fan perception, we (along with Diana from Screens in Focus) attempt to highlight what makes this episode so good. Sometimes, even when I create these descriptions, I feel like I'm saying the same thing over and over, again, so it's great to see the mundaneness of what we do in our waking life reflected back at us by way of #TWDU.
And here we are again with some technical difficulties, which I think we've since solved with our latter recordings (available for streaming, for all supporters). Please don't miss out on the wackadoo things we say that we can't possibly publish, or the inane things that go on behind the scenes! And let's not forget to mention that attending a recording session is absolutely free, but you have to make sure to create a @Ko-fi account and follow us, here:

Bridget Mason-Gray:

  •  Joining us for our coverage of this episode is Diana from Screens in Focus!
    Website Screens in Focus Banner (1).png
  • First off, of course we have to get Diana's general thoughts on this anthology series, thus far. She loves comedy, but wasn't sure how it would mesh with the world of The Walking Dead. While watching this episode, she found herself laughing out loud, especially on a second viewing!
    Tales of the Walking Dead Episode 2 Recap and Ending, Explained
  • Bridget loved the episode, possibly because she is a massive fan of dark comedies such as Heathers. She found it difficult to wait for Sherrandy Rachael to watch the episode because she wanted to talk about it so badly!
    Tales of the Walking Dead Episode 2 Introduces a Shocking Sci-Fi Element |  Den of Geek
  • Rachael said she can only like the episode if Sherrandy's theory is correct (more on that shortly). She cannot get behind these characters seemingly re-spawning to relive the day. It's just not how real life or The Walking Dead Universe works (as we know/knew it).
    Tales of the Walking Dead Episode 2 Is a Modern Classic - Horror Obsessive
  • Is Rachael just mad because other characters like Glenn Rhee and a particular character from Better Call Saul couldn't "respawn"? Diana also mentions a Stranger Things character that she would like to see return.

  • Sherrandy really enjoyed the episode, especially on second watch. She appreciates that the universe is branching out to take chances and explore new ideas!
    Tales Of The Walking Dead' Episode 2 Is The Weirdest TWD Has Ever Been, By  Far
  • Even though we aren't discussing the flagship series, we find ourselves still wondering where certain characters are, like Heath, Cyndie, Scott, Kal, and Eduardo.

  • How did you feel about Fear the Walking Dead's beer bottle balloon? It's another example of a spin-off series taking chances the flagship series wouldn't dare to (namely, Fear The Walking Dead).
    Fear the Walking Dead - Season 5 OST - 5.06 - 11: Hot Air Balloon - YouTube
  • Dave: Loves to see the show unapologetically explore mechanics and ideas we could never experience on the main show. He compares it to how, if you love a band's freshman album, would you want their sophomore album to sound exactly the same? Some folks might prefer it, but you usually want to see a band progress/evolve in both style and sound.
    The Walking Dead 1014: Beta's past features some cool callbacks
  • Were people too harsh on The Walking Dead: World Beyond solely because they wanted it to give us more information on Rick Grimes? Similarly, do you think folks watching Tales of The Walking Dead were hoping for more direct connections to other TWDU series?
    Dont Care Wheres Rick GIF - Dont Care Wheres Rick Rick Grimes - Discover &  Share GIFs
  • Could we see all the Tales of TWD characters return in Season 2 and perhaps crossover in future episodes? If a second season is in the cards, will it be just a continuation of these stories? For example, the premiere for Season 2 could follow the events of Evie & Joe just after their episode, while the second episode would pick up where Gina & Blair Crafword left off.

  • Had you ever heard of Folie a Deux prior to this episode? I had heard of it, but only because it is the title of the upcoming sequel to 2019's Joker, starring Joaquin Phoenix. Lady Gaga has been cast as Harley Quinn, so it seems likely that these two characters might exhibit the same behaviors as Blair & Gina.
    Joker: Folie Γ  Deux (2024) - IMDb
  • Prior to the first respawn, Blair is reading an article by Chase Helzer (possible fictional author), which talks about The Spreading Depression (the dark wave of brain activity that occurs at the time of death). The quote Blair reads out loud is directly lifted from the real-life scientist, Aristides LeΓ£o, "At the edge of life and death is a spreading dark wave." In his study, Aristides mentions that neurons use their remaining charge in a final blast, depleting their stores, which is similar to the description Blair's husband, Brian, uses to explain what dΓ©jΓ  vu really is.
    Tales of the Walking Dead episode 2 Blair/Gina new photos
  • Sherrandy's theory on Blair & Gina's Groundhog Day-esque respawns: Gina and Blair are just video game characters (possibly Telltale's The Walking Dead). Every time they "lose" they start over at their last "checkpoint".

  • Do you think it's possible that Gina and Blair were already dead, before this episode even began?

  • Have you ever felt trapped at your job, wondering if you will ever make it to 5 o' clock?
    Tales Of The Walking Dead Time Loop Episode Explained By Showrunner
  • Dave has observed that this episode might be a commentary on how many TWD Family members wish for a zombie apocalypse: do you often find yourself praying for one to avoid the numbing day-to-day malaise or seemingly implacable life hurdles?

  • In the film The Return of the Living Dead, the living characters were able to communicate with the zombies. Could we see something like this in this series?

  • Have you ever wished for a zombie to rip the face off of your crappy ex like Bridget has? No? Just Bridget?

  • This episode is directed by Michael Satrazemis, who has done a lot of work on The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, and now Tales of the Walking Dead.
    Fear the Walking Dead interview: 20 questions with Michael E. Satrazemis
  • The younger boy in this episode is named Wendell, which is most likely a nod to the similarly named character on Fear the Walking Dead due to the fact that he climbs into the tanker's cab and is carrying a mini-figurine of a semi-truck.
    Tales of the Walking Dead episode 2 Blair/Gina new photosSarah's Backstory Solves A Fear The Walking Dead Season 4 Mystery
  • Blair and Brian were escaping to Jekyll Island which is the real-life filming location for The Oceanside community's beach (on The Walking Dead)

  • This episode did a great job of taking us back to Season 2 of The Walking Dead, where our characters discover that one, particular walker mechanic: namely, the discovery that everyone is already infected and reanimate when we die.

  • This episode also refers to the CDC being in close proximity to Blair's office. At the time of this episode, Dr. Jenner was most likely just starting his research.

  • Bridget says the article in the episode reminded her of Jenner's TS-19, from TWD's first season.

  • Bridget brings up that despite Blair's father dying from lung cancer, Blair continues to smoke, which is a form of self-sabotage and could be why she has a psychological disorder.

  • Sherrandy points out that these ladies work at Circle of Trust: they had to loop back to the beginning, indefinitely, and could only break out of the loop until they could finally trust themselves and one another.
    Tales of the Walking Dead Episode 2 Review: Blair/Gina Recap
  • It also appears as though we're looking at the herd on the highway setting from Season 2 of The Walking Dead, at the end of this episode!
  • Sherrandy wonders if the underlying thread that moves through these episodes, thus far, is the concept of our perception of reality. Evie & Joe are worried about the way they will be perceived by people (formerly) closest to them (Evie's separated husband & Joe's online connection to Sandra/USHLDBSCRD). This episode focuses on our perception of time, as we see Gina and Blair struggling to make it past the respawn point to make it to the end of their day. The next episode, titled Dee, it's our perception of... You didn't really think I would spoil it here, did you?
    Tales of the Walking Dead: Dee - spoiler free review of Alpha's episode
  • Sherrandy's eagle-eyes spot, near the end of the episode, Blair sitting at Gina's desk with a clock above her that has a bent minute hand. The thought is that this represents Gina & Blair bending time.
    [Editor's note: What everyone failed to notice is that the second hand does not move throughout the entire scene, indicating that time has stopped and, perhaps, won't resume until Gina & Blair resolve both their personal and interpersonal issues]
  • As we end our coverage on this episode, I want to give a big round of applause to Parker Posey and Jillian Bell for their amazing portrayals of Blair Crawford and Gina, respectively. I also want to give a major shoutout to director, Mikey Satrazemis, and, of course, everyone else who worked on this episode. Hopefully, we will see Blair and Gina return to TWDU!Tales of the Walking Dead Season 1 Episode 2 Recap: Blair/Gina

  • How did you watch Better Call Saul? Did you end up bingeing it on Netflix, between seasons, or have you been a fan since day one, watching it as it aired on AMC? We found that these episodes hit differently when doing one over the other.
    Better Call Saul Season 1: Everything You Missed | Den of Geek
  • Since it was the highlight of Kim's day (her riskiest behavior throughout Waterworks using Miracle Whip over Duke's), we have to ask: Duke's or Hellmann's/Best Food's (nobody likes Miracle Whip... absolutely nobody)?
  • Sherrandy felt happy to see some Winn Dixie representation, since they are based out of her hometown of Jacksonville, Florida.

  • Who has a sadder story in Better Call Saul: Kim Wexler or Mike Ehrmantraut?

  • Out of the many undoubtedly colorful windshield sun shades present in everyone else's cars, in the Palm Coast Sprinkler parking lot, Kim is the only one to use a plain, silver one, demonstrating the bland, color-free lifestyle she chooses to live.
  • Sherrandy: Kim is Miracle Whip, pretending to be mayonnaise. Call her "Kimberly M. Wexler" (the 'M' stands for Mayonnaise).

  • Though much of what we love about Kim is lost, she is still as detail oriented as she was during her lawyer days, but she cranks the volume down on it like everything else in her life.
    Dell Computer Monitor Used By Rhea Seehorn As Kim Wexler In Better Call  Saul S06E12 "Waterworks" (2022)
  • Would Kim have kept living her boring life in limbo had Gene Takovic not egged her on to confess, all the while informing her that Gustavo Fring, Mike Ehrmantraut, and Eduardo "Lalo" Salamanca were all "in the ground"?

  • Right after her gut-wrenching call with Saul, Kim immediately proceeds to sing Happy Birthday to one of her coworkers (fully aware that it's also Jimmy's birthday, as well).
    A few notes I noticed while watching Waterworks : r/betterCallSaul
  • The pickup area at the airport says Alaska. Having watched El Camino (chronicling the events that immediately follow the conclusion of Breaking Bad), did you briefly think (even for a second) she might run into Jesse Pinkman?

  • Would Kim's colleagues have even recognized this version of Kim Wexler on first glance?

  • Does Cheryl Hamlin feel responsible for Howard's "suicide"? She, too, looks somewhat worse for wear after all these years.

  • Given that Cheryl still has a photo of Howard on her mantle, might she and Howard have mended their relationship had he not been killed?
    Better Call Saul: Who Is Cheryl Hamlin?
  • During plea negotiations, right before Jimmy commits his final master-stroke meant to shed light on Howard's funky demise (which might've further reduced his already remarkably reduced sentence of 7 years to basically nothing), he finds out that Kim did what he had bullied her into doing over the phone and already submitted her written affidavit to the court detailing the events of Howards murder. The real question is whether Jimmy - in that moment of shock - was also visibly proud of her?
    Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 13 Review: Saul Gone | Den of Geek
  • Upon hearing that Kim confessed, knowing Cheryl could file a civil suit against her at any time, does Jimmy feel like she opened herself up to throwing her entire life away for nothing?
  • Rhea Seehorn deserves an Emmy for her performance on the airport tram, in which she divulges how this was the first time Kim finally allowed herself to break down after everything that's happened.

  • When Gene is photographing the paperwork and passwords of his final identity theft mark (played by Kevin Sussman), there appears to be $737,000 in his bank account, which is the exact amount Walter White said he needed to leave behind for his family (credit to Pete Peppers).

  • How did you feel as Jimmy performed one final persona/name change - by way of explaining to the judge, after finishing his statement, "I'm James McGill"?
    Why Did Jimmy Confess in Better Call Saul?
  • When Jesse talks to Kim, he references Chris "Combo" Ortega who was also in Breaking Bad.

  • Could Kim have effectively halted the events of Breaking Bad before they started by telling Jesse Pinkman to avoid Saul at all costs (when he asks her if he's "the real deal")?
    Better Call Saul' Kim-Jesse Meeting Transcends Fan Service
  • There have been only three occasions where color has been shown during the Gene timeline. Two of those times, the color was a reflection of a TV's/Monitor's screen in Gene's glasses, showing one of his Saul Goodman television commercials (both the very first and very last episodes). The third is the cherry of the cigarette James & Kim share during the very last scene.

  • How will James spend his days in prison? Will he be teaching law courses or will he completely suppress his past?

  • As Jimmy calls Bill Oakley for the first time in many years, we see Oakley exit what appears to be an AMC (American Motors Corp) Eagle (Dave) or Concord (Sherrandy... and the actor who plays Oakley, Peter Diseth). This reminds us of Jimmy's Suzuki Esteem and Bill even answers the phone with his own slogan, much in the way Jimmy used to. Here's a picture Dave made that probably means nothing now:
  • This series finale features many many callbacks to episode 3x05 Chicanery. For example, both the (ex) wives were present and sitting at the back of the courthouse (Chuck's in Chicanery and Jimmy's in Saul Gone): Kim & Rebecca Bois.
  • They also reuse the exit sign in the same manner in both episodes. This indicates that Saul Goodman is exiting, just as Chicanery saw the exit of Chuck McGill, only James reenters.
    Better Call Saul Recap: 'Saul Gone' - On Tap Sports Net
  • During the flashback with Mike (which takes place sometime during the events of episode 5x08, Bagman), Saul tries to tell him that they should split the money and run, which is a callback to the Season 1 storyline with The Kettleman's, wherein Jimmy proposes Mike steal the money they embezzled.

  • Dave: Believes Jimmy would have gone back to prevent the death of Chuck McGill.

  • Walter White's answer to the question actually ends up playing out during the final season of Breaking Bad, as he ends up confronting and shaking down the owners of Grey MatterGretchen and Elliot Schwartz. To think that Saul Goodman was responsible for both Walter White's rise and confronting one of his biggest regrets.

  • Confronting the wives of their victims: Kim is compelled to confront Howard's wife, Cheryl, much in the way Jimmy is forced to confront Hank Schrader's wife, Marie.
    The Best Line That Hank Ever Dropped On Breaking Bad
  • Even though it's not explicitly stated, do you believe Saul revealed to the lawyers (during plea negotiations) that Mike was murdered by Walter White, giving his family the closure they deserved? After all, Mike spent so much of his time in The Breaking Bad Universe giving closure to the families of victims, like he did with Manuel Varga after the death of Ignacio "Nacho" Varga.

A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

It has been an absolute honor to be able to author these podcasts for team SQUAWKING DEAD. To Dave, Bridget, Sherrandy, Rachael, and everyone else who participated in any way: thank you! I loved being able to guest host during our coverage of Episode 6x07, Plan and Execution. I caught up on the series during the airing of the first half of season 6 and jumped into authoring the blogs for SQUAWKING DEAD as soon as I finished. There are a lot of things I know I missed - due to having binged 5½ seasons in the span of about two months - and this team did such an outstanding job covering the show and its many complexities. I would also like to thank every single person involved in creating Better Call Saul, both in front of and behind the camera, as well as everyone responsible for conceiving Breaking Bad because, after all, we would not have received Better Call Saul without it. I believe the content within the Breaking Bad Universe is some of the best in entertainment and although I am sad at the prospect of having to say goodbye to Saul Goodman, Walter White, Mike Ehrmantraut, Kim Wexler, and the rest of the gang for good, I am so thankful for the memories we created as a result. I also want to thank anyone who took the time to listen to SQUAWKING DEAD's coverage of Better Call Saul and, additionally, anyone who took the time to read these blogs. A special shout-out to Dave for having my back, editing my work, and making sure everything looks correct and polished for all of you glorious readers to consume. My heart is immensely full as I write this. I wish you all the best. Since Sherrandy ended the show with "S'all Good Man!" I guess I only have one thing left to say: That's Saul Folks!
