This new theory about Breaking Bad universe suggests that Better Call Saul Season 6 might skip the entire Timeline of Breaking Bad and jump straight to the post Breaking Bad era.
While watching Season 5 of Better Call Saul, fans kept wondering one thing i.e. How Better Call Saul Season 6 is going to connect to Breaking Bad? Though almost all the elements of Breaking Bad had been infused in the Better Call Saul storyline, it’s still a question of how it all will smoothly connect to Breaking Bad storyline while delivering a mind-blowing finale at the same time.
- Better Call Saul Season 6 is going to skip the entire Breaking Bad Timeline.
- Saul’s conflict remains unsolved in Breaking Bad.
- Better Call Saul Season 6 will be split into two parts.
- Skipping Breaking Bad timeline can set everything straight in Better Call Saul season 6.
Except for Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), all other key characters like Hank (Dean Norris), Mike (Jonathan Banks), Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) etcetera, including Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) have already joined the Baby Blue hustle.
Still, the fans are not sure if Vince Gilligan will be able to give Better Call Saul a deserving finale and connect it to Breaking Bad, all in Season 6 alone.
Better Call Saul Season 6 is going to skip the entire Breaking Bad Timeline.
What will happen to Kim? How Saul will deal with Lalo? Where Lalo and Nacho went during the Breaking Bad timeline? Why Howard Hamlin (Patrick Fabian) wasn’t anywhere in Breaking Bad?
There are a dozen questions that fans are curious about. Everyone knows what happens in post-Better Call Saul timeline, as everyone has seen Breaking Bad, and Better Call Saul is a prequel to it.
Fans are concerned about how Vince Gilligan will be able to tie all these loose ends in Better Call Season 6 to give the show a deserving finale, and at the same time prepare the story for Breaking Bad?
A new theory suggests one possible way Vince Gilligan could pull this off, i.e. by skipping the entire timeline of Breaking Bad.
Saul’s conflict remains unsolved in Breaking Bad.
As shown in Breaking Bad Season 2 Episode 8, named “Better Call Saul”, the debut episode of Saul, that the conflict of Nacho Varga (Michael Mando) and Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton), still existed in Breaking Bad timeline.
In the episode, when Jesse and Walter threaten Saul in the middle of the desert, Saul screams “It wasn’t me, it was Nacho…… Lalo didn’t send you?” And with no doubt, he was referring to our beloved Nacho and Lalo from Better Call Saul.
That means not all the conflicts of Saul’s storyline as of Better Call Saul Season 6 will be resolved in the pre-Breaking Bad timeline.
Better Call Saul Season 6 will be split into two parts.
Recent reports suggested that similar to Breaking Bad Season 5, which was divided into Season 5-A and Season 5-B, Better call Saul Season 6 might also have two parts of Eight episodes each.
The first part of Season 6 might be set in the pre-Breaking Bad timeline and the Second part in the post-Breaking Bad timeline.
This way Vince Gilligan and AMC will be able to connect Better Call Saul to Breaking Bad and will also be able to give the storyline a thrilling finale.
Skipping Breaking Bad timeline can set everything straight in Better Call Saul season 6.
Better Call Saul Season 6 might skip Breaking Bad timeline entirely, and it can prove to be just the very thing Better Call Saul needs.
The part A of Season 6 might deal with the subplots of Kim Wexler and Howard, telling us why both of them were absent from Breaking Bad. And then while Saul lived in the fear of Lalo and Nacho during the entire timeline of Breaking Bad, part B might bring all of them face to face in post-Breaking Bad timeline.
There is a reason why Better Call Saul has been constantly giving us sneak-peaks of Saul’s post-Breaking Bad life, and the fears he is facing.
Possibly, Gus was the reason Lalo didn’t follow Saul during Breaking Bad, and now as Gus and Mike are gone, Saul might face Lalo again after Breaking Bad.
