Go away a Remark
In opposition to all odds, AMC’s acclaimed drama Better Call Saul has not solely stood tall within the shadow of its flagship successor Breaking Bad, however it should additionally shut out its run with extra seasons and extra episodes. (Okay, only one extra season and yet another episode, however nonetheless.) The crime drama spinoff had positively embraced its roots throughout its first 5 seasons, placing Bob Odenkirk’s Jimmy McGill-turned-Saul Goodman in touch with loads of people who audiences first met in Breaking Bad. However there are nonetheless many O.G. characters that would nonetheless seem within the ultimate BCS season.
Let’s check out the noteworthy Breaking Bad character who should return to the franchise for a enjoyable cameo in Better Call Saul‘s ultimate season. Or, extra probably, a “hectic and aggravating as shit” cameo in Better Call Saul‘s ultimate season. Let’s go forward and begin off with the golden goose himself, since he may very well be the lone entry on this checklist and it could nonetheless be related.
Walter White (Bryan Cranston)
We all know the way Walter White’s story ends inside the Breaking Bad universe. And positive, we assume we all know the way it began, however Better Call Saul has yet another season to throw an fascinating wrinkle into the combination that permits followers to revisit and reinterpret Heisenberg’s arc in new contexts. And if that is asking an excessive amount of, then maybe only a easy physician’s workplace scene the place Walt is seen previous to his most cancers analysis. Nevertheless it goes, followers want yet another scene with Walt, even when Bryan Cranston could be okay if it did not occur. I’d not be okay. The world wouldn’t be okay.
Patrick Kuby (Invoice Burr)
It is virtually laborious to imagine that comic and F Is for Household star Invoice Burr solely appeared in 5 episodes of Breaking Bad, since Kuby and Lavell Crawford’s Huell felt like they have been hovering across the outskirts of Saul’s interactions with Walt and Jesse. In any case, whereas Huell’s relationship with Jimmy/Saul has been addressed in a number of episodes, audiences have but to see how Saul comes into contact with Kuby, and the way the duo find yourself on Saul’s payroll. This ultimate season is asking for you, Kuby, after which we are able to hopefully get a Kuby and Huell animated spinoff within the aftermath.
Jane Margolis (Krysten Ritter)
Krysten Ritter’s drug-loving Jane supplied certainly one of Breaking Bad‘s largest and ever-present tragedies, with Walt purposefully failing to intervene upon seeing her choking to demise on her personal vomit. And whereas it was high quality sufficient to see her in that flashback later within the season, after which once more throughout Jesse’s recollections in Netflix’s El Camino: A Breaking Bad Film, these cases solely provided conditions from the previous. Better Call Saul might give viewers an in-the-present Jane, so to talk, and present audiences what she was like earlier than Jesse tumultuously entered her life.
Badger and Skinny Pete (Matt Jones and Charles Baker)
Like Krysten Ritter, Matt Jones and Charles Baker returned to the franchise for El Camino and helped Jesse out after he’d escaped the neo-Nazis. It was fairly nice, however that was a really darkish and emotionally harrowing scenario throughout, so Badger and Skinny Pete did not get fairly as many levity-building comedic moments as I’d have preferred. Not that they don’t seem to be efficient in additional dramatic moments, however there isn’t any one else on this TV universe fairly like Badger and Skinny Pete, so I hope they’re in a position to return for one thing 100% absurd and ridiculous in Better Call Saul Season 6.
Tortuga (Danny Trejo)
Maybe the least important entry on this checklist, the drug-running DEA informant generally known as Tortuga solely appeared in a pair of Breaking Bad episodes. Nevertheless, he obtained one of many franchise’s most memorable deaths – explosive disembodied head atop the again of a tortoise – and was performed by Danny Trejo. Contemplating all TV exhibits ought to at all times try to get Danny Trejo concerned, Better Call Saul would rating some massive thumbs-up indicators if Tortuga’s involvement with the cartel was launched in Season 6. Or even when Danny Trejo simply got here in to play a totally totally different character…
Elliott And Gretchen Schwartz (Adam Godley and Jessica Hecht)
The 2 individuals who unwittingly impressed Walter White’s flip to the Darkish Facet, Elliott and Gretchen Schwartz typically appear to be good individuals who did not actually deserve the fear that Walt ended up placing them via. In order that they most likely do not want to indicate up for any potential terror in Better Call Saul, however it could nonetheless be superior if Grey Matter entered the story in Season 6 ultimately, maybe if Kim (or somebody from one of many corporations she’s labored with) took the tech firm on as a consumer. Hell, which may even be a delicate strategy to make a Walt look occur.
Andrea Cantillo (Emily Rios)
Many followers have been hoping that Brock Cantillo would present up in El Camino, however it did not occur exterior of a photograph being seen. Whereas this is not an entire one-to-one scenario, bringing Emily Rios again as a youthful (and clearly nonetheless alive) Andrea in Better Call Saul could be a good way to pay respect to a pair of characters that turned extraordinarily essential to Jesse proper as his life was heading for an entire upheaval. I doubt the timing would work out to indicate her pregnant with Brock, however one thing might occur.
Todd (Jesse Plemons)
Yeah, I do know Jesse Plemons was utilized loads for El Camino. Yeah, I do know that Todd is a bigoted murder-monster. Yeah, I do know that Todd was partially accountable for ruining Jesse’s existence. You already know what else I do know, although? Todd is a hilariously weird treasure. Carry him again! Carry him again!
Wendy (Julia Minesci)
In hindsight, it is virtually bizarre to assume that Julia Minesci’s meth-loving intercourse employee Wendy was launched through Hank and Gomez in Season 1, versus her being somebody in Saul Goodman’s bag of tips, because it have been. Nevertheless, Better Call Saul might simply carry this recurring character again in Season 6 for one motive or one other (that most likely includes somebody being paid for sexual acts that will or could not really happen).
Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul)
Now that El Camino confirmed everybody that Jesse Pinkman ultimately will get to flee a lot of his harmful previous, nobody has to fret about him anymore. So Better Call Saul might present the right alternative for Aaron Paul’s ultimate scene on this universe to be one thing utterly light-hearted that has nothing to do with overdoses, Nazis, medication or ground-shaking betrayals. I am unsure if Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould might work out a strategy to have Jesse nonchalantly testing out a large magnet (bitch), however that is at the least one choice. A second choice could be to have him displaying up at Gene’s Cinnabon, which might be superb.
In an ideal world, Better Call Saul would carry each single certainly one of these characters again for its sixth and ultimate season. However in an ideal world, Better Call Saul would last more than simply six seasons, so there is a conundrum.
In any case, keep tuned to CinemaBlend for extra updates as they develop into out there, and relive the primary 4 seasons of Better Call Saul on Netflix, with Season 5 probably not getting added to the service till shortly earlier than Season 6 premieres. In the meantime, head to our Fall 2020 TV premiere schedule to see what new and returning exhibits are on the best way.
