Today, the last episode in the final season of Better Call Saul aired, bringing to a close an era of storytelling spanning 14 years and two shows. In the last few hours, social media’s been exploding with posts from happy fans, who are absolutely thrilled at how well showrunners Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould drew curtains on the show. The overwhelming sentiment now is that even though it was called Better Call Saul and was meant to give audiences a closer look at who Walter White’s (Bryan Cranston) money-laundering lawyer really is, this show, at its core, was a love story.

It was all about Jimmy/Saul (Bob Odenkirk) and Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) really, going by one of those last scenes. Awwwww!

Here’s a look at what fans have been saying while bidding adieu to their favourite show…

“14 years, 125 episodes over 2 shows, 1 movie & a once in a generation achievement in storytelling. Thank you to all involved for everything. What a ride, huh? #BetterCallSaul #BreakingBad #ElCamino”

"Imagine creating Breaking Bad, the show many people say is the greatest ever, and when that ends creating a spin-off that you could say is even better. That’s what Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould did with #BetterCallSaul."

"Walt caused the death of so many people, Death is his price. Jesse suffered so much pain, Freedom is what he deserved. Saul broke the law he has sworn to uphold, imprisonment is his eternity. It's really all about consequences. #BetterCallSaul #BreakingBad #saulgoodman."

"Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould gave us fourteen years of unparalleled television and stuck the landing twice. Incredible. Pretty sure we'll never see this again. #BetterCallSaul"

"Better Call Saul is one of the best shows of all time. Plain and simple. The amount of talent in front and especially behind the camera - is unmatched. It’s been a pleasure. Believe me when I tell you, watch every season - it’s Saul Goodman. #BetterCallSaul #BetterCallSaulFinale"

"The wrap up to #BetterCallSaul and by extension #BreakingBad is the way to thank fans and honor the spirt of the show, the fans, the writers. Thank you to the teams that kept the passion lit. We're all richer for your labors."
