With so much happening in the first two episodes itself, Better Call Saul is turning out to be better than unexpected.
The first two episodes were sheer proof that Better Call Saul is a show that will keep you on your toes till it ends. The way things are shaping out and how they are connecting with the previous seasons is just incredible. The show is turning out to be better than we could have expected and it gets better with every next episode.
Better Call Saul is chaos like Breaking Bad
Better Call Saul is among those few TV shows that are ageing like fine wine. The way the story moves and characters develop is just beyond expression. Better Call Saul is supposed to be a TV series that is firmly packed in all aspects, after all, it is Breaking Bad’s prequel.
The story is an extraordinary blend of lots of character building, peaks of action, and several adrenaline rushes. Ageing like fine wine, the biggest transition that will show its colours now is Bob Odenkirk’s transition from Jimmy McGill to Saul Goodman.
The first two episodes bring all the legendary characters on the screen with a lot of things cooking around. It could be a sigh of relief, that things are about to fall in place. But if we know Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, with these sighs comes the real chaos.
Nacho Varga will be hunted
The first episode, Wine and Roses, opens from the exact same spot it left two years ago. The show opened with Nacho Varga (Michael Mando) desperately escaping to Mexico after ratting out Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton) to Gus Fring’s (Giancarlo Esposito) men. Along with this happening, Lalo is still alive preparing his twin, while Nacho thinks he is dead.
There’s so much chaos in the story, Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) is trying to convince Fring to bring the kid (Varga) back as a reward for his honesty and hard work while Los Pollos Hermanos’ owner is trying to do the opposite.
The troubles of Nacho Varga do not here, he is hunted down at his hiding motel and attacked by the Salamanca Twins and their men. Though he escapes somehow and this is where the third episode opens.
The Kettleman appear after the first season
Better Call Saul is known to have parallel stories and connect them most unexpectedly later on. So, with this happening on the cartel side, Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) and Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) are trying to embarrass Howard Hamlin (Patrick Fabian).
As a part of their plot, Saul and Kim bring back the characters who were last seen in the show’s first season, the Kettlemans. This is probably the biggest interconnection that has happened yet in Season 6.
While Saul tried to lure them with a deal to get back what was theirs by defaming Howard Hamlin which they denied at the moment and went to all the law firms before finally returning to Jimmy.
Now, when the second episode is named “Carrot and Stick” it is for a reason. The carrot part happened when Goodman tried to lure them with a profit-profit deal. The stick part happened when Kim showed her threatening side and called the CID for some action on the Kettlemans’ for stealing money from the old-aged.
Walter White and Jesse Pinkman will be back
With so much already happening in Better Call Saul, we must know this is just the start. The show creators have confirmed that Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) will enter the franchise. Also, when they enter there are chances that the shows will interconnect in the most unexpected way possible.
With the way, Kim’s character is developing and how things are shaping out for Mike Ehrmantraut, there are chances that these characters will go beyond the expected plot and do something unusual. We must also not forget Lalo Salamanca’s twin and keep an eye on how his character would develop.
The third episode of Better Call Saul’s sixth season is now streaming on Netflix.
