It’s often called TV’s best. We finally get the conclusion after seven years. Better Call Saul Season 6, the final season of AMC’s premium legal drama, premieres this week. Don’t miss it.
Saul Goodman’s arrival in Breaking Bad’s second season modified the show’s concept. A dazzling cartoon lawyer appeared in this tale of warring cartels, ruthless criminals, desperate cancer patients, and impetuous burnouts. Breaking Bad required Saul’s humor. Better Call Saul has tirelessly revealed the various tragedies beneath this clown’s smile.
The legal thriller’s last season aired over two years ago. In this TV-crammed age, that’s forever. Before returning to Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould’s world, we have a refresher. In Season 5, Better Call Saul happened.
How Did Better Call Saul Season 5 End for Nacho?
Nacho (Michael Mando), once upon a time, wanted to run his own drug gang. But when the meanest people in Albuquerque started picking on Nacho’s family, he decided he had enough. When Gus (Giancarlo Esposito) found out that Nacho had become Lalo Slaamanca’s (Tony Dalton) right-hand man, he warned Nacho’s father to turn Nacho into his own mole. And that’s how Nacho started working for not just one but two important people in the drug gang.
But Mike (Jonathan Banks) gave them a little bit of hope. Gus’s right-hand man agreed to get Nacho and his father out of the game and protect them both if Nacho “handled” the unstable Lalo Salamanca. Putting Lalo in j@il did not work. That left de@th.
Gus made his move when he found out that Lalo and Nacho were going to Lalo’s Chihuahua home. Nacho only had to open Lalo’s gate at 3 a.m. and then run away. Nacho did everything he was told to do, but he hasn’t seen his prize yet. At the end of Season 5, Nacho was running for his life and hoping that Gus would keep his end of a dangerous deal.
Is Lalo Salamanca Still Alive?
Lalo wouldn’t be up late if he went to bed at a normal time. Lalo was still awake at 3 a.m., so Nacho started a fire in the kitchen to keep him busy while he opened the gate. Maybe that fire so early in the morning gave him a rush of energy. No matter what, Lalo was ready when the people who wanted to kill him showed up. In the chaos that followed, most of Lalo’s family and guards were killed by Gus’s killers, and Lalo killed all but one of these men.

By the way, that was planned. Lalo told the last hired killer to call the person who set up the attack and say to him that Lalo was dead. Gus probably thinks that Lalo is finished at the start of Season 5. Even scarier? Lalo noticed that Nacho had gone missing, which showed that Nacho was the mole. Run, Nacho, run.
What’s Going On With Mike And Gus Fring?
Breaking Bad fans know Gus Fring dislikes impulsive business partners. That led to his feud with Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and his Lalo assassination attempts.
Gus seemed content with his competition with Lalo under Don Eladio (Steven Bauer). That changed when things became messy. Gus had to burn down one of his Los Pollos Hermanos businesses to cover Nacho’s mole status because Lalo and Hector (Mark Margolis) hated him. Lalo killed TravelWire clerk Fred Whalen. A mysterious trial and exorbitant bail followed that horrible murder of a U.S. citizen. That was too much heat for Gus, possibly traceable to him. Gus assassinated Lalo for financial reasons and self-preservation.
Mike felt conflicted about Lalo despite arranging this de@th attempt. Mike and Gus generally agree. Mike has worked with cartels long enough to know that Lalo must die to preserve a low profile. Nacho divides them.
As noted, Mike promised Nacho he would protect him and his father if he killed Lalo. Nacho has kept his promise thus far. Gus may not share Mike’s loyalty to the young man.
Many people have shown their reactions to Better Call Saul Season 5. Some of them are given below.

Saul Goodman represented Lalo after his arrest for murdering the TravelWire clerk. Jimmy took Lalo’s $7 million bail for a price. Jimmy drove to the desert and exchanged as arranged. Until the Salamanca cartel shot him. Mike rescued Jimmy, but dehydration nearly killed them both. Jimmy’s orange socks were shaken by de@th. After bail, Lalo visited Jimmy and Kim (Rhea Seehorn). Nothing happened. The couple booked a hotel because the experience was scary.
Kim knows more than the desert mystery. Jimmy told Kim about the Lalo hit after Mike told him. Season 5 ended with Jimmy contemplating the unsolved Sandpiper case with Kim, burdened by his mortality and moral decline. It was a funhouse mirror this time. Kim wanted to progress while Jimmy was on Let the Case Go. To conclude…
What’s Going on with Kim?
Nacho’s finale ruled last season. Kim o’clock emotionally. Kim was shocked when Jimmy introduced Saul Goodman in Season 4. Kim’s arc included realizing her boyfriend-turned-husband may not be who she thought he was. However, the desert triggered that existential crisis. It! Nowadays, many fans are waiting for the Joker movie 2 and what could be its storyline be.
Kim completely changed after Jimmy almost died. She quit Schweikart & Cokely and dropped Mesa Verde as a client to focus on pro bono work. Kim’s major mic drop came late in the episode. Kim discussed the Sandpiper case payout after uncovering Jimmy’s Lalo payment and his b*llet-holed coffee mug. They can be paid faster by smearing Howard (Patrick Fabian). Kim was willing to risk career ruin.
Jimmy told Kim she wouldn’t do this because she’s too moral. “Wouldn’t I?” Kim replied. Kim imitated Saul Goodman’s finger g*ns when Jimmy asked if this was a joke. Kim, our honorable lawyer, is gone. Her successor is unknown.
