A scene that was rarely completed will be featured on tomorrow's episode of Better Call Saul on Netflix. According to The Hollywood Reporter, star Bob Odenkirk suffered a heart attack while recording a key scene for Tuesday's episode on July 28, 2021.

In a recent interview with the publication, Odenkirk told the publication, "I feel very good. I am in great shape."My heart attack occurred five weeks after I returned to work with a five-week break to recover.

When I returned, my shooting was limited to 12-hour days, so they took care of me. Hopefully, you can't tell when I had a heart attack and when I didn't.

A collapse occurred during filming when Odenkirk collapsed in Albuquerque, where the series was filmed at the time. He was 58 years old at the time.

Despite having had a "small heart attack", he took to Twitter two days afterward to tell people that he'd "be back soon".

It will be interesting to see how the editor's magic plays out in next week's episode. Odenkirk said that approximately three-quarters of the scene was shot before the heart attack, and the other quarter was shot afterward. I don't recall that day." "The strangest thing is that I don't remember it."

It's really weird to watch something that you can't recall acting in. Usually, when you watch something, you can recall some of it even if it was shot months ago. But this one is blank. That's weird. It's weird to have lost a week and a half like that."

A heart attack forced Odenkirk to stop filming Better Call Saul, but production resumed in September 2021. As the show is currently in the middle of its sixth and final season (read our review here), it's receiving extremely positive reviews.

This episode follows Jimmy McGill, who progresses from a good lawyer into the infamous lawyer for criminals and the desperate, Saul Goodman (first seen in Breaking Bad). Series executives have not revealed how Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and sidekick Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) will return.
