Better Call Saul finale might change everything you ever loved about Breaking Bad.
Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad prequel and spin-off, is waiting for its season 6, aka the final season. The first 5 seasons have been immensely successful and were loved by the viewers even after having high expectations from a Breaking Bad-related show.
Now, as we all know that season 6 is going to be the final season, it’s pretty obvious that a lot is going to happen. Season 5 left us in an extremely vulnerable point for the show and. Things can either go extremely flat and faulty or can drive you to a never-experienced-before thrill.
However, we know the show’s creator Vince Gilligan enough to trust that it’s not going to go flat. But in any case, you will never have the same view of Breaking Bad and its characters, including Walter White (Bryan Cranston), and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) after BCS’ finale.
Better Call Saul’s end to mark the beginning of Breaking Bad.
With several key Breaking Bad characters joining the Better Call Saul storyline, the coming shift in the story with the finale is obvious. Saul Goodman, aka Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), is the lead of Better Call Saul, and as we already know from Breaking Bad, he will be the lawyer of Walt and Jesse.
Other characters from BB, like Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), Mike (Jonathan Banks), Tuco Salamanca, and Hector Salamanca, have already been a part of BCS from the first seasons. Now, even Hank Schrader (Dean Norris), Walter’s brother in law and a DEA agent has joined the BCS will join. The shift isn’t only limited to the characters, but even the tone and theme has noticeably changed in season 5.
While the first 3 seasons of Better Call Saul focused on Jimmy, his struggle to be recognized as a lawyer, and his relationship with his brother, Chuck McGill, in season 4 we saw him becoming Saul Goodman, and the show slowly shifting from a law drama to a drug cartel one.
It won’t be wrong to say that season 5 was almost Breaking Bad, minus Heisenberg and Jesse.
What will change for Breaking Bad?
The finale of Better Call Saul is not going to be any ordinary one.
A lot is at stake for AMC, Netflix, and Vince Gilligan. The conclusion of several conflicts, like that of Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn), Howard Hamlin (Patrick Fabian), Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton), and Nacho Varga (Michael Mando) may end in unexpected ways.
All these characters, directly and indirectly, affect how we see the characters that are going to enter Breaking Bad.
Better Call Saul co-creator Peter Gould revealed to The Hollywood Reproter:
“I think by the time you finish watching Better Call Saul, you’re going to see Breaking Bad in a very different light.”
“I think we’re going to learn things about the characters in Breaking Bad that we didn’t know. We’re going to learn things about the events of Breaking Bad that we didn’t know.”
We’re going to learn things about the fates of a lot of these characters that may surprise people or certainly throw them into a different light — Gould explained.
For Breaking Bad, we previously had totally distinct inception for the storylines of various characters. We have now seen the past of those characters in BCS. Thus, we will now know them for who they actually are.
We only knew Saul for a con-man crime lawyer, we had no idea of the Jimmy under it. And this goes for several key characters. This could change our entire understanding of Breaking Bad.
