What you need to know before the end of “Better Call Saul”

Saul Goodman’s first TV appearance was in the Breaking Bad The episode of second season is appropriately titled “Better Call Saul,”The series premiered on AMC on April 26, 2009 and was broadcast on AMC for the first time on April 26th, 2009. In other words, it has been just a minute since the first appearance of the title character in the prequel series. Better Call SaulThis is only a slight decrease since we met Mike Ehrmantraut and Gus Fring as well as several other key figures who have been on both shows.

As such, the final Saul season resumes on July 11 after a brief hiatus — with events still taking place roughly four years before Walter White walked into Saul’s strip-mall office — we thought it might be helpful to remind you of what everyone was up to when we first saw them on Breaking BadTo answer your questions Saul You may have to find the right answer to the question between these two points in time. Also, you might need to consider the fate of those remaining characters. Not You can appear at any time Breaking Bad.

Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk).

On Better Call Saul Right now: Jimmy has been practicing criminal defense law for a while now under the Saul Goodman name, but away from the strip mall, he seems very much like the slick but ultimately sweet Jimmy McGill he’s been for most of the series. Kim Wexler, his wife, has just pulled off the con against Howard Hamlin. This will result in Jimmy receiving a multimillion-dollar compensation for his participation in the Sandpiper lawsuit class-action suit. But the con has tragic consequences, resulting in Howard lying dead on the floor of Kim and Jimmy’s apartment while the spouses are being threatened by Howard’s killer, Lalo Salamanca.

On Breaking Bad: In Episode Eight of Season Two (“Better Call Saul”), where Walter White attempts to hire him to help his and Jesse Pinkman’s colleague Badger get out of jail without ratting them out. He is still working out of the strip mall (albeit with more garish decor), has by this point completely embraced the Saul Goodman identity and personality, and is plugged into all aspects of Albquerque’s criminal network. He claims not to directly know Gus Fring — “Let’s just say I know a guy who knows a guy who… knows another guy,” he later tells Walt — and seems to believe that Mike Ehrmantraut is simply his freelance investigator. He compares their dynamic to Magnum and Higgins. Magnum, P.I.) When Walt and Jesse take him into the desert at night to threaten him, Saul — oblivious at first as to their true identities — tries blaming Ignacio (presumably Nacho Varga, who died recently on Saul) for whatever they’re mad about, and is relieved to learn that Lalo did not send them.

Big questions: Jimmy, the one who saw Howard’s murder, can still feel guilt and shame in a way that would seem foreign for Saul Goodman. When and how does he spiritually transform from a mere professional to a Jimmy? What happens to Jimmy’s wife Kim, and what is Saul’s relationship to her? Saul obviously knows he is not Mike’s primary employer and is lying to Walt and Jesse about that, but what does he know about Mike’s actual boss and his operation? What do Saul actually know about Lalo, Nacho, and their whereabouts when Walt and Jesse take them into the desert?

Bonus questions:Jimmy is the only major Saul After the events of, we have seen character who we recognize as a character. Breaking BadHe is found in Omaha, managing a Cinnabon at a shopping mall. Gene Takovic is his fugitive identity. Gene was getting ready to face a shady taxibie when we last saw him, at the beginning Season Five. What’s his plan? Will it work? This will be a happy ending for Jimmy/Saul/Gene.

What you need to know before the end of "Better Call Saul"

AMC

On Better Call Saul Right now: Cop-turned-parking-attendant-turned-hitman Mike is coordinating security for his kingpin boss Gus Fring as Gus’ operation comes under siege from the unpredictable Lalo Salamanca. Mike has mistakenly moved most of his guys back to Gus’ house to protect him, thus leaving Jimmy and Kim unprotected for Lalo to approach them and murder Howard Hamlin.

On Breaking Bad:In Episode 13 of Season Two (“ABQ”), Mike appears to be a private investigator and general fixer working for Saul Goodman — in that episode, he’s sent to help Jesse Pinkman deal with the overdose death of his girlfriend Jane — but is revealed early in the following season to be the right-hand man to Gus.

Big questions: Given how their professional relationship has evolved over the course of the prequel series, why does Mike later pose as Saul’s employee? Is there a need for it? Any explanation as to why? Saul, Mike is treated at best as equivalent to fellow Gus henchmen Tyrus and Victor, but on Breaking Bad Is clearly the number two man in the org chart

Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito)

On Better Call Saul Right now: Lalo Salamanca interfered in Gus’s attempts to build an underground Super Lab, where he could make his own meth and cut out the Mexican cartel. Worse, Mike Ehrmantraut is keeping Gus under wraps while Lalo is still at large. He has hidden a gun in the Super Lab dig site out of suspicion that Lalo may appear there, but for the most part is hiding out in a safe house that’s a hidden tunnel away from his actual house.

On Breaking Bad:Season Two Episode 11 (introduced)“Mandala”), where he met with Walter White about the possibility of distributing some of Walt and Jesse’s meth through his thriving distribution network.

Big questions:It’s really just about how he defeats Lalo Salamanca’s plot against the cartel. Theories are that the remaining episodes will reveal more about Gus’s activities under Pinochet in Chile. This is a small mystery. Breaking Bad obsessives, but one that’s not really germane to where the story is now, nor to getting Gus from here to when he sits opposite Walt at a Los Pollos Hermanos franchise.

On Breaking Bad: Lalo Salamanca never appears on Breaking BadHowever, in Season Four Episode 11, “Crawl Space,” Gus Fring declares that with the rest of the family wiped out, the Salamanca name will die with Lalo’s uncle Hector.

Big questions: Why? does Lalo Salamanca never appear on Breaking Bad? Did Gus tell Hector the truth? If so, when is and how will Lalo die? If not, under what circumstance would Lalo possibly allow Gus to get away with… Anything Gus does on Breaking Bad? And why is Saul so scared of Lalo when Walt & Jesse take Saul into the desert

Bonus question: This isn’t so much about Lalo, but on Better Call Saul at the moment, Lalo’s uncle Hector is living in a very nice nursing home in Albuquerque; yet when we meet Hector on Breaking Bad, he is staying in the run-down desert hideout of Lalo’s cousin Tuco. Does it just seem like Tuco is trying to take over his uncle after he escapes the prison stretch that he started back in? Saul Season Two? What happens to Lalo when he isn’t there?

On Breaking Bad:Kim Wexler is never seen on Breaking Bad.

Big questions: Why? does Kim Wexler never appear on Breaking Bad? Is she dead? Has she fled Albuquerque and/or her marriage to Jimmy because of all the things she’s seen and done since they got involved? Are they still happily married in the Heisenberg era, but she’s not involved in his work? Is it possible that he would flee the town if this is true?

Bonus questions: Is it possible that Gene Takovic is from the same state where Kim grew up as Kim? Kim might appear in the Gene timeline in black-and white.

Bonus bonus question: What will the fans’ satisfaction be at the end of the series? Will it depend on Kim turning out okay?
