Who you gonna call? No, not Ghostbusters, Better Call Saul!
The spinoff/prequel to AMC’s award-winning drama, Breaking Bad, returns this Monday, April 10 at 10 p.m. ET. Bob Odenkirk and cast return following their sophomore season, with a lot of questions to be answered from last season’s events.
Is Chuck going to sue his own brother? Jimmy admitted to “breaking into” his brother’s house and falsifying documents at the climax of the finale. Unbeknownst to him though, Chuck recording the confession. Being that Chuck is a by the books lawyer, we know he won’t blackmail Jimmy, so suing him seems to be the logical route.
Who left the note on Mike Ehrmantraut’s car? In the midst of attempting to assassinate Hector Salamanca, the former cop is interrupted by a car horn – with a log jammed to keep it going constantly – so who could have left the note? Reason would state it was Ignacio “Nacho” Varga, but Mike’s (somewhat) former associate was with Salamanca the whole time.
Alongside these featured storylines come even more speculation as to when, where and which familiar faces from Breaking Bad will be showing up this Season.
Two months ago, AMC released a rather realistic looking commercial online for Better Call Saul season 3 titled “Los Pollos Hermanos: Taste the Family.” The commercial revealed the return of Breaking Bad antagonist Gustavo “Gus” Fring, a fan favorite.
While the episode date hasn’t been confirmed, Fring will definitely be in the third season, which isn’t entirely surprising considering his role in the previous series. It will be interesting to see his interactions with Jimmy and/or Mike, and how they compare to their interactions in Breaking Bad.
Questions aside, if the first two seasons are any indication of it’s third, Better Call Saul is bound to find the same success as it’s predecessor. I look forward to more character progression, complicated relationship, and morally ambiguous situations to come this season, and I hope you do too.
