On Episode 20 of The TV Obsessive Podcast, Caemeron and Ryan discuss Better Call Saul S6E7, “Plan and Execution,” which Caemeron holds up as one of the best episodes of television of all time (Ryan agrees). But first, in the news:

We’re excited for a number of shows coming in November: Fargo, The Curse, A Murder at the End of the World, Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, the Doctor Who anniversary specials. Ryan is intrigued to see how Season 2 of Loki ends.

On Better Call Saul S6E7, “Plan and Execution”

On the day of the Sandpiper settlement conference, Jimmy and Kim hastily reshoot their photos with the actor impersonating Casimiro, then pass them to Howard’s private investigator, who is actually working for them. Howard ingests Caldera’s drug upon contact with the photos and embarrasses himself at the conference by appearing manic and accusing Casimiro of accepting a bribe. Howard and Cliff are forced to settle the Sandpiper case for less than they wanted. Lalo surveils Gus’s laundry, realizing he has built a hidden meth lab there. Calling Hector, he tells him he will attack Gus that night after realizing Gus’s men monitored his call. Mike alerts Gus and redirects his security teams to protect Gus, leaving Kim and Jimmy’s apartment unprotected. Howard deduces that Jimmy and Kim plotted his character assassination and confronts them at their apartment. Lalo arrives soon afterward, intending to “talk” to Jimmy and Kim. Kim urges Howard to leave, but Lalo kills him with a gunshot to his head.
