In the last episode of Better Call Saul, Episode 1.5 “Alpine Shepherd Boy,” we finally got to see Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) out from behind his parking lot clerk booth. While we saw him week after week on Breaking Bad, but we never learned very much about the henchman’s personal life except that he had been in law enforcement and that he was a devoted grandfather who just wanted to leave his little granddaughter a legacy. In his prequel series, Mike is a main character and it’s about time we learned more about what’s happened in his life and what motivates him.
Check out the preview photos and sneak peek video here below for Episode 1.6 “Five-O.”
When a tragic past comes back to haunt Mike, he seeks help from an unlikely source.
