How excited are you? Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad are going to unite for a smashing finale, and fans can’t keep calm.
For the last five seasons, we’ve been witnessing Better Call Saul gradually riding towards the Breaking Bad storyline. Though Better Call Saul is still exploring a different storyline, both shows might finally reunite for a smashing finale. Not only fans, even we can’t keep calm on what we are going to witness.
- Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul to reunite for a finale.
- BCS’s end to mark Breaking Bad’s beginning.
- Better Call Saul to have a final showdown after Breaking Bad.
Better Call Saul is a spin-off to Breaking Bad and a prequel in the trilogy that consists of a sequel movie El Camino.
The show explores the personal and professional life of Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk). He’s a criminal lawyer we met as Saul Goodman, a supporting character in Breaking Bad. The show explores how Jimmy becomes Saul Goodman in Better Call Saul, and how he later becomes a brushing point for all the conflicts revolving around Walt and Jesse in Breaking Bad.
Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul to reunite for a finale.
For the first three seasons, we experienced how Jimmy becomes a lawyer, and the struggles for recognition. We also witness how his luck and his brother constantly work against him, motivated by which, he transforms to his past con-man avatar, “Slippin’ Jimmy”, every now and then.
In the finale of season 3, his brother, Chuck, supposedly kills himself in the house fire. Following which, in season 4, Jimmy shrugs off all the guilt and bondages he had assumed on himself to satisfy his brother over years.
He transforms into his alter ego Saul Goodman, which is basically Slippin Jimmy who knows the law and can use it.
Later, as the show moves into season 4 and 5, we witness the shift in tone from a law drama. One of the key characters from Breaking Bad, Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks), was already part of BCS storyline from the beginning. We get introduced to Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), Salamancas, and Hank Schrader (Dean Norris), giving us the whole Breaking Bad’s Baby Blue cartel.
Considering the speed at which Better Call Saul is moving towards the Breaking Bad storyline, we are pretty confident that they will merge to give us a smashing finale.
BCS’s end to mark Breaking Bad’s beginning.
There is no confirmation on how Vince Gilligan and the team will achieve this, but our theory suggests that Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad can unite for a finale in two possible ways.
Our first theory suggests that Better Call Saul’s storyline will merge into Breaking Bad, later leading to the finale of BCS. We know Saul was introduced in Breaking Bad in season 2 episode 8 named “Better Call Saul”.
The introduction wasn’t very cheerful as he was abducted by Walter White and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). When threatened, Saul pleaded for mercy by trying to clarify that he didn’t do anything.
He said to Jesse and Walt, “I didn’t do anything, it wasn’t me it was Nacho”. After noticing their disinterest, he asked: “Lalo didn’t send you?”.
This clearly defines two things: first, storylines of both the shows will be entirely united by that moment; second, the existing conflict of BCS, Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton), remains unsolved till that moment.
This means the main conflict of BCS from season 5 will be resolved in the finale taking place in the storyline united with Breaking Bad.
Better Call Saul to have a final showdown after Breaking Bad.
We know iended as Walter White, aka Heisenberg, lay dead in the final scenes. However, Saul Goodman flew away from the story well in advance. As shown frequently in the Better Call Saul’s opening scenes, we see Saul working in disguise as a service guy at a restaurant somewhere on the earth. He’s hiding from someone.
The scenes we see are set in the post-Breaking Bad times. It’s possible that Saul managed to dodge Lalo throughout the Breaking Bad storyline as the territory was under Gus’ protection. Now, as Gus is gone, Mike is gone, and Heisenberg is dead, Lalo might return for Saul.
So, we might see the Better Call Saul storyline skipping through the entire Breaking Bad one, and then giving us a finale blow post Breaking Bad. What are your thoughts on it?
