Better Call Saul Cast Watching Finale "And Then We're Going To Cry"

On Monday night, fans of Vince Gilligan & Peter Gould's Bob Odenkirk & Rhea Seehorn-starring Better Call Saul will be in one of two places. Either glued to the front of their screens, absorbing every second of the Gould-written & directed "Saul Gone," or trying to avoid social media to stay spoiler-free. But how will the cast be spending the night that the "Breaking Bad" spinoff wraps up its six-season run? Speaking with PEOPLE at the Hollywood Critics Association TV Awards this weekend (where the show won for Best Cable Series, Drama; Best Supporting Actor in a Broadcast Network or Cable Series, Drama; Best Supporting Actress in a Broadcast Network or Cable Series, Drama; and Best Actor in a Broadcast Network or Cable Series, Drama), Odenkirk revealed that they'll be spending it together. "We're going to get together as a cast at somebody's house and watch the episode. And then we're going to cry," the actor explained. "Rhea Seehorn, Michael McKean, Patrick Fabian, Michael Mando: This core group of actors are the best friends. We're going to miss each other awfully."

Series co-creator Gould spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the "tremendous challenge" it's been when it comes to Jimmy & Kim's relationship and the moment during the series that "the whole show really turns on" regarding Jimmy & Kim's dynamic.

On Charting Jimmy & Kim's Relationship: "It's all a tremendous challenge. Jimmy and Kim's relationship is so deep and fascinating to all of us who work on the show that it's tough to figure them out, but it's really an interesting pursuit. All of us — Bob [Odenkirk]and Rhea [Seehorn], me, and all the writers — brought a lot of our own experiences and relationships to these two, thinking about what it's like when two people love each other, but they also have pursuits that ignite them. And some of those pursuits are not good for them and not good for the world."

On "The Moment That the Whole Show Really Turns On" Between Jimmy & Kim: "The great moments, for me, are when the character does something that I'm not expecting, but it seems completely logical once I've seen it. We've had a few of those inspiring moments through the series. The moment that the whole show really turns on is the moment that Kim discovers from Mike [Jonathan Banks] that Lalo Salamanca [Tony Dalton] is actually alive, and she makes a choice not to tell Jimmy that she knows this. In the moment, you wonder why she didn't tell Jimmy, but it's understandable, and we soon find out her logic and it's painful."

Earlier this week, we shared a look at the promo for the series finale that previewed a pretty messed up car, as we hear Gene/Jimmy/Saul (Odenkirk) repeating his "vacuum store extraction" mantra. Following that, we had the release of only two preview images, though it's only appropriate that our final pair of looks at the series wrap-up focuses on the duo that the show's entire universe revolved around: Jimmy and Kim. But it also begs a question. Are these moments still in different parts of the country, or are "Gene's" and Kim's universes inching closer together?
