‘Better Call Saul’ Season 6 Part 2 opens with a bang

Better Call Saul Season 6 Part 2 kicked off with a bang, bringing Lalo Salamanca’s character arc to a tragic — but not wholly unexpected — end. The final season spends much of its run building to a showdown between Lalo and Gus. And those who have seen Breaking Bad knew Gus would come out on top. However, they may not have predicted just how quickly Lalo would perish during the second half of the season.

That means the remaining episodes of the Breaking Bad prequel will focus on Jimmy and Kim’s reactions to Howard’s (Patrick Fabian) and Lalo’s deaths. And given Kim’s absence in the original series, we can probably expect some serious drama. So, what’s the airtime for Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 9?
