This detail was noted by the fans who noticed that the duration of the episode is also shown on the AMC website next to the broadcast date.

Vince Gilligan: "They should give us a Nobel for Better Call Saul"
The screenwriter said: "We have high hopes for how television critics will welcome the episode.
If we don't win the Nobel Prize for it, I will be very disappointed. It is the result of many sweaty hands and many sleepless nights. Because we are not satisfied, but above all because who we wanted to satisfy, first of all, it was us.
I think everyone on the show is very happy with how it ended. I hope, I hope, I hope everyone else agrees because I think the thing I'm most proud of is that the show has stayed true to itself. And we're playing on the same pitch we started on.
And I think it's a very good result. But if people find all their dreams and hopes fulfilled in it, all we can do is hope: a Nobel Prize would be great!" Gilligan also wanted to have her say on the long-awaited finale of the series and the fate of Saul Goodman.
He said: "Gene's world is collapsing on him." Gilligan advised viewers to get ready for some real drama: "It's going to be really great. Buckle up your seat belts." He was also asked to describe the series finale in one word, and what he replied was: "Earned. Well earned."
