Better Call Saul Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) in Episode 101

Last night saw the Season 1 finale of AMC’s Better Call Saul, Episode 1.10 “Marco,” which tied up all the loose ends of this debut season. We saw more of Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) past and the type of man he was when he was “Slippin’ Jimmy” the con man; we learned more about his best friend and con partner Marco, who he goes to see again in Illinois after the devastating reveal from Episode 1.9; and we get a glimpse of the direction that Jimmy is going in for Season 2.

Now that Season 1 has come to a close, the cast and creators are taking a look at what’s to come in Season 2 with a new 4-minute video, which you can watch here below.

Better Call Saul Episode 110 Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) and Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut

The Season 1 finale of AMC’s Better Call Saul, Episode 1.10 “Marco,” aired Monday night and it served mostly as an epilogue of sorts to the previous episode, which revealed what has been standing in Jimmy’s (Bob Odenkirk) way all these years.

The network has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which sees Jimmy talking to Mike in his parking clerk booth about what they could have done different in the Kettlemans situation. AMC has also released a behind-the-scenes featurette that’s a 5-minute “Inside Look” at the episode that brings us from the HMM law offices to Cicero, IL where Jimmy meets up with his old pal, Marco, and back.

Better Call Saul Episode 105

We’ve seen four of the ten episodes of Season 1 of the AMC original series Better Call Saul, which sees Bob Odenkirk reprising his role from Breaking Bad in a prequel storyline. And so far, we’ve learned a lot about Jimmy McGill, the man Saul Goodman was before he became a strip-mall lawyer.

The latest episode, Episode 4 “Hero”, brings the end of the first natural arc of the series. When we first met Jimmy in the series premiere, he was downtrodden, struggling as a Public Defender in the Albuquerque, NM, courts, not making enough to even pay the meager $5 to get out of the court’s parking lot. He’s been trying to make a name for himself and build up his clientele, but he’s had a string of bad luck and can’t seem to get ahead. But everything changed in “Hero,” where Jimmy’s luck takes a turn for the better.

Episode 1.5 “Alpine Shepherd Boy” seems like it will be the start of something new for Jimmy, but after he gets alarming news, he’s forced him to make yet another choice.

Check out the preview photos and sneak peek video here below for Episode 1.5 “Alpine Shepherd Boy.”

Better Call Saul Episode 1.4 Hero Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) AMC

Better Call Saul
Episode 1.4 “Hero”
Directed by Colin Bucksey
Written by Gennifer Hutchison
Starring Bob Odenkirk, Michael McKean, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, Michael Mando, Patrick Fabian
AMC
Air Date: Monday, February 23, 2015, 10pm

Every day is a struggle for Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk). His adversities aren’t narrowed down to just one facet of his life, but instead encompass ALL aspects of the lawyer’s being. Along with struggling to build his clientele, pay his bills, and make a name for himself, there’s his constant inner conflict as he continues to teeter between acting in good conscience and relying on his old swindling ways. Back in Better Call Saul Episode 2, we heard Jimmy promise his older brother, Chuck (Michael McKean), that he wasn’t slipping back into his old ways, which, as we see from flashbacks, was being a hustler and a schemer. He’s trying to make his way in the world as a public defender for the Albuquerque, NM, courts, but it pays very little and is getting him nowhere. In Episode 1.4 “Hero,” Jimmy once again walks that fine line between good and bad, but this time around, his moral ambiguity becomes his defining characteristic.

Better Call Saul Production Image

Though some delays have pushed Better Call Saul back to a 2015 debut, our interest in the show is still quite high. So every bit of news is something we should savor until we get to see a trailer. We weren’t quite sure what the show would be; all we knew was that Bob Odenkirk would reprise his role as Saul Goodman, with Jonathan Banks returning to reprise Mike Ehrmantraut. The two roles tell us that this would at least be a prequel of sorts. But we also heard that it could be a sequel. Can’t be sure how compelling one would be if audiences were to watch Goodman managing a Cinnabon, but I’m sure Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould can figure it out.

Now it is confirmed that the comedy drama will indeed be a prequel and a sequel, but it will also be a series that takes place during the vents of Breaking Bad. Hit the jump to see Gould’s comments, and the possibility of original Breaking Bad characters returning to the series.

Better Call Saul

Breaking Bad was on the brink of being cancelled before the show found new life when people started to watch it on Netflix. So thanks in part to that, AMC extended the series for a few more seasons and turned it into the critically acclaimed show that it is today. And now, the two are going to make their relationship more public.

Netflix has just announced that it will stream Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad prequel/sequel, days after each episode airs. Deadline reports Netflix and Breaking Bad producer Sony Pictures Television have all signed a deal that will allow the spinoff series to be available for all of the streaming service’s territories.

Better Call Saul Cameos

News of a Breaking Bad spinoff, Better Call Saul, broke before it was determined what could happen to Bob Odenkirk‘s character Saul Goodman. For the sake of spoilers I will leave out what happens to ABQ’s favorite lawyer, but just know that Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and showrunner Peter Gould will be back to work on the prequel spinoff.

The two have confirmed that the show’s setting will stay in New Mexico to maintain its Breaking Bad presence. Gilligan also confirmed that the show will geared more towards comedy, but that there will also be dramatic elements. According to them it would be about 75% comedy and 25% drama. Now in a new interview, Gilligan talks about what we would see in Better Call Saul, and if Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, or other stars of the show might show up in the spinoff.

Breaking Bad Season 5.14 Granite State

Breaking Bad
Season 5, Episode 15 – “Granite State”
Directed and written by Peter Gould
Starring: Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, Laura Fraser, and Jesse Plemons
AMC
Air date: September 22, 2013

After all the predicting and guessing I’ve made, turns out the most simple reason of all is the reason behind Walter White’s (Bryan Cranston) return to ABQ. Massive spoilers follow.

It’s not Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) or Skyler (Anna Gunn) or Walter Jr (RJ Mitte) that brings Walter White’s newly minted Mr. Lambert back to ABQ. In fact, it’s so much simpler than that. It’s the reason that Breaking Bad has explored for so long.

Saul Goodman Header

Breaking Bad fans would agree that the world would be a much better place with little more Saul Goodman in their lives. And it looks like AMC and Sony Pictures TV agrees. Today, the two parties have reached an agreement on the sniff off that would serve as a prequel to the the Vince Gilligan hit series, which is coming to an end.

According to Deadline, the series, tentatively titled Better Call Saul, would be an hour-long prequel that would center on Goodman (played by Bob Odenkirk) before he became the slippery sleazy silver-tongued lawyer for Walter White. The status of the project is unknown, but word is Better Call Saul, based on the lawyer’s catchy slogan, has already been approved for a full-series order pending the agreements of the complication of Sony TV’s deals with Gilligan, writer Peter Gould, and Odenkirk.
