With every fan favourite face from Breaking Bad already in Better Call Saul, it’s time Jesse Pinkman and Walter White appear too. Almost all the faces from Breaking Bad have appeared in Better Call Saul, except the two leads themselves, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. So, it’s about time and, finally, Walter White and Jesse Pinkman will debut in Better Call Saul’s season 6.
Breaking Bad was a complete rollercoaster
Breaking Bad was undoubtedly one of the best roller coaster TV shows that have ever existed and its exemplary 9.5 IMDb rating proves the same. Everyone who has watched the show knows how tables can turn and anything can happen anytime, the show is full of emotions and the character-building is just perfect.
Keeping in mind the sinusoidal motion that Breaking Bad maintains right from its first episode, we expect no less from its prequel, Better Call Saul. Breaking Bad fans, especially the fanatics who had some connection with Bryan Cranston’s Walter White and Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman wanted to see their favourites right at the beginning of the show.
But, it didn’t really happen, though the prequel brought back the famous lawyer, Bob Odenkirk’s Saul Goodman, who actually advised the drug trade back to the screen, it failed to bring back the meth kings.
Jesse Pinkman and Walter White will be back in Better Call Saul
The fans haven’t lost hope in 5 seasons and they believe it will finally happen in this new season. The silver lining is, that Peter Gould, Better Call Saul’s co-creator has said that Walter White and Jesse Pinkman will be returning in some capacity.
Gould announced the news on Variety television saying that he doesn’t want to spoil viewers’ experience but the Breaking Bad leads will return. He said he won’t comment anything on how they will return and leave that to the audience to discover.
“I don’t want to spoil things for the audience, but I will say the first question we had when we started the show was, ‘Are we gonna see Walt and Jesse on the show?’ Instead of evading, I’ll just say yeah. How or the circumstances or anything, you’ll just have to discover that for yourself, but I have to say that’s one of many things that I think you’ll discover this season.”
Aaron Paul was shocked too
The unexpected announcement from the show’s co-writer was not just unexpected for the audience but also for Aaron Paul. In an interview with THR, the actor shared how unexpected yet happening this announcement was.
Paul said he was heading for the Better Call Saul Premiere party when he was told that he will also be there in the show’s sixth season. He was shocked, yet extremely happy that he can openly talk about his presence in Better Call Saul.
“Shocked! I was heading to the [final season] premiere party of Better Call Saul, and they go, “There’s a flag on the play. Just so you know, Vince and Peter let everyone know that you and Bryan are going to be in the final season.” And I was like, “What?!” So I didn’t see that coming. But to be honest, I’m happy to be able to finally talk about it and not be squirrelly. It’s nice to be able to be open about it.”
Furthermore, Aaron said that fans of both the shows would have been expecting it, especially after how they have seen the Breaking Bad family appear in Better Call Saul. So, he thinks that it would have been odd if they wouldn’t have made it to the show along with others.
“So I’m excited. I think fans of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul might have been expecting it. They’ve been seeing the Breaking Bad family slowly appear within the walls of Better Call Saul, so I think it would be odd if Walt and Jesse didn’t make an appearance. So I’m excited that we did and how we did. I think people are going to be thrilled about it.”
Both the shows will connect
There are several other remarkable faces in the show which include Mark Margolis (Hector Salamanca), Luis and Daniel Moncada (the Salamanca twins), Steven Bauer (Don Eladio), and Steven Michael Quezada (Steven Gomez), and Dean Norris (Hank Schrader).
The show is also expected to connect with Breaking Bad in some way and keeping in mind the widespread popularity of the show and how it connects every shred, there should be a bridge between the two shows.
Now, when Jesse Pinkman and Walter White will return in some way on the show, there’s, even more, to be seen or rather experienced in Better Call Saul season 6.
