Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad crossover will finally happen with Jesse Pinkman and Walter White debuting in the next episode.
Episode 4 of Better Call Saul revolves around events that confirm Bryan Lee Cranston (Walter White) and Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman) sooner than you think. Once the Meth Lords debut in the show and Lalo Salamanca is back, it might result in the probable crossover of the show and Breaking Bad.
Bryan Lee Cranston and Aaron Paul will debut soon
Rhea Seehorn directed Better Call Saul’s latest episode, “Hit and Run”, which brought several more familiar faces from Breaking Bad. The catch here is not just the arrival of some familiar faces, but the faces that can connect the show with Breaking Bad.
Better Call Saul has introduced almost all the Breaking Bad prominent faces from the time it was released in 2015, except the two central leads, Bryan Lee Cranston’s Walter White and Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman.
It was confirmed that the two of them will appear in the season finale, and keeping in mind the events of the latest episode, it seems it is just around the corner. The things, characters, and places have started signalling in the direction that the Meth Lords will be back on the screen sooner than we know.
El-Camino and Wendy are the first two hints
The biggest reason that suggests that Walter White and Jesse Pinkman will appear in no time was certainly the name of the diner where Kim Wexler met her client, El-Camino. El Camino was Jesse’s sequel movie after the amazing run of Breaking Bad.
Not just this place signals in the direction that the Breaking Bad stars are about to debut, but some character introductions too. There was a scene before El-Camino came on the screen, that introduced Pinkman’s girlfriend from the first 3 Breaking Bad seasons, Wendy (Julia Minesci).
She debuts in Better Call Saul as the sex worker who is here to help Kim and Jimmy to pull off their con show. Saul picks up Wendy after stealing Howard’s car and pushes him out of the vehicle just at the right place for Clifford Main to notice the incident, and most importantly, the car’s number plate.
Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad will cross-paths
Another character that debuted in Hit and Run is Spooge (David Ury). He debuted in the second season of Breaking Bad where he was a meth addict who threatened Skinny Pete. Spooge along with his wife stole meth from Jesse’s friend and when this happened Jesse visited the couple at their house with a gun. Pinkman asked them to either give back what they stole or pay for that stuff.
He appears at the Nail Salon to have some legal advice from Saul Goodman. This scene also shows the amazing character development of Bob Odenkirk’s Jimmy McGill to Saul Goodman. It shows how the state’s criminals have started walking to him seeking legal representations after the news of him helping Lalo Salamanca has come out.
The debuts of Wendy and Spooge show how close we are to having a possible crossover between the two shows and it is not too far for Pinkman and White to make their debut in Better Call Saul. Both the characters are directly connected to Aaron Paul’s character.
Lalo Salamanca will return
Better Call Saul seems to be becoming better and better with every passing episode. Apart from the two characters coming from Breaking Bad, there is one more thing that is keeping the fans awake, the absence of Lalo Salamanca.
It is yet to be seen how he appears for revenge and if Mike Ehrmantraut and Gus Fring will be able to find him or if he will find them before they do.
There’s no need to be said that the next episode will be a bigger explosion than this one. Better Call Saul’s next episode will premiere on 9th May 2022.
