A glass homage to Werner Ziegler is featured in Better Call Saul, etched with the German "In Liebe Deine Jungs." What exactly does this mean in English?
What does "In Liebe Deine Jungs" mean in English from Better Call Saul season 6, episode 5? "Black & Blue" from Better Call Saul starts off in intriguing fashion, with a pristine glass block built from scratch and a measuring ruler laying dead centre. "In Liebe... Deine Jungs," a German word is inscribed on the front. Though the meaning of the ornament is first vague, "Black & Blue" eventually leads to Werner Ziegler, the German architect in charge of Gus Fring's super-lab in Better Call Saul season 4. As a punishment for breaking procedure and making plans to meet his wife, Margarethe, Werner was murdered by a reluctant Mike.
Werner's wife, Andrea Sooch, makes a surprise appearance in Season 6 of Better Call Saul. She's schmoozed by a fellow bar patron named Ben, but she has no idea that "Ben" is actually Lalo Salamanca in full seduction mode, yearning for information about the project Werner Ziegler was working on for Gus. While lying low within Margarethe's home, Lalo notices the "In Liebe Deine Jungs" dedication on a nearby shelf, analyses it, and then exits through the nearest window.
Jimmy Is To Blame For A Bad Death, According To Better Call Saul
"Liebe" translates to "love" in English, therefore "In Liebe... Deine Jungs" would mean "With Love... Your Boys" in the context of Better Call Saul. The men who flew to New Mexico with Werner and were part in Gus' super-lab project commissioned this glass plaque. They couldn't tell Margarethe the truth about her husband's death since they were sworn to secrecy, and they couldn't even attend their beloved boss' burial, so modest tokens like engraving "In Liebe Deine Jungs" were all they could do.Their only outlet for grieving is onto a glass block. Werner Ziegler referred to his staff as "Seine Jungs," which translates to "his lads," as Margarethe confesses to Lalo Salamanca during the bar sequence in Better Call Saul season 6, episode 5. Werner's Better Call Saul plaque reads somewhat differently since "Deine" is the informal German word for "your.
The camaraderie between Werner and his crew was visible throughout Better Call Saul season 4's super-lab construction sequences. He treated them as if they were his sons, and they coexisted as a close-knit family cut off from the outer world. The glass plaque's statement "In Liebe Deine Jungs" conveys this stronger-than-blood link, but the phrase also has an unintended darker meaning. Thanks to a touching tribute poem written by the tragically departed Gale, Hank ultimately understood Walter White was Heisenberg in Breaking Bad. Just as sentimentality tangled Walt, it might tangle Gus as well...
Something is clearly wrong when a bunch of construction workers buys their late employer a lovely glass memorial inscribed with a deeply personal statement like "In Liebe Deine Jungs," but then fails to show up for his burial. Lalo agrees, and upon inspecting the plaque's backside, he discovers a sticker from the firm that created it. This fateful sticker will almost certainly bring Lalo to Werner's old crew and, eventually, Gus Fring's super-lab. It's achingly ironic that by paying tribute to a man they all loved, the crew may have condemned themselves by providing an enraged Salamanca a trail to follow on his Better Call Saul season 6 Germany field trip as Lalo hunts down Werner's "Jungs."
