Finally, the plan is put into motion. After the department store manager, Kathy, is forced to deal with a delivery from Jeff's friend, she calls the number on the invoice. Naturally, she is immediately connected to Gene, who manages to scheme his way through the situation. He gets her to agree to keep the crate on her loading dock overnight. After their call finishes, he gives a quick "it's showtime, folks" to himself.
Gene moves onto phase two, bringing some Cinnabon to Frank and Nick. We then see that the delivered crate had Jeff inside of it. He climbs out with his bag in tow after getting the go-ahead from Gene. Jeff races through the department store as planned, grabbing everything in sight.
Everything is going smoothly until Jeff slips and falls in the store, crash landing on the floor. He seems to be knocked out, and Gene is forced to pivot as time continues to run down. He fakes having a bit of a mental breakdown and cries to Frank to keep him distracted and try to give Jeff time to get up.
It works, and Jeff is able to get up, place the clothes in the crate and run to the bathroom, where he will wait things out until the next day. Minus that minor hiccup, the plan goes off without a hitch. Jeff escapes the morning after the robbery, and they bring the goods back to Jeff and Marion's garage.
Now Gene comes full circle and reveals his true intentions for this plan: Mutually Assured Destruction. Jeff and his friend are now criminals, committing crimes that would result in many years in prison.
It's a classic Saul Goodman-esque sequence, where he lambasts two criminals for being stupid, and he's the only one who can help them out of their trouble. Jeff knows Gene is really Saul Goodman, and now Gene has dirt on Jeff and his buddy. If they rat on him, he rats on them, and they all go to prison for many years. He makes them both say that they're done, this is the only job they will work on, and that's that.
Marion rolls up outside of the garage, saying she saw Gene's car outside. She opens the garage and finds the three men standing over Jeff's car, working under the hood. Gene heads inside to wash up, where he tells him that Jeff fell in with a bad crowd back in Albuquerque, with Gene saying, "he's never been." Marion asks about Nippy, and Gene lies, saying that the dog had been found safe and sound, and the plan is now complete.
"After all that, a happy ending."
We cut back to Gene at the mall, where he takes his lunch break and heads to the department store. He browses the suit section, admiring the different shirts and ties available, each more flamboyant than the last. He holds one against his chest, looking like the Saul Goodman of old. He sighs, places them back on the rack, and the episode ends.
