‘Better Call Saul’ Fans Think These 3 Characters Could Die in Season 6

The weirdest thing about Better Call Saul and prequels in general is that fans already know what’s going to happen.

However, even though Breaking Bad addicts are aware of how Saul Goodman will turn out, they were clueless on his backstory. And now going into season 6 they’re terrified of some answers that will soon be revealed.

Better Call Saul is the story of how Jimmy McGill becomes Saul Goodman, the reviled criminal lawyer from Breaking Bad. But a few of the secondary characters have become just as beloved and popular, including some who aren’t part of the original series.

This all leads fans to speculate that some of their favorite Better Call Saul players could be killed off in season 6.

Missing characters from ‘Breaking Bad’ aren’t necessarily dead

First, it’s important to point out the obvious: just because a character isn’t part of Breaking Bad, it doesn’t mean they’re dead. Breaking Bad focuses on Walter White becoming a drug dealer along with his former student partner, Jesse Pinkman. Saul Goodman doesn’t even become part of that story until the second season.

So it makes logical sense that some of Saul’s former associates aren’t part of the narrative in Breaking Bad. There is one important reference to Lalo and Nacho. No one mentions Kim. Still, these omissions are not necessarily bad news for beloved characters.

Even though the missing characters on Breaking Bad aren’t definitely dead, there’s a good chance they are based on their most recent lifestyle decisions.

First up is Lalo Salamanca. During the season 5 finale, Nacho Varga secretly tried to have Lalo killed in his home but failed. When Lalo found out who set him up, it made Lalo furious and hellbent on revenge. At this point, the showdown between Lalo and Nacho will almost certainly result in one or both of their deaths.

Saul indicates that Lalo could be alive after Walt and Jesse kidnap him in Breaking Bad. He says, “No, it wasn’t me. It was Ignacio [Nacho]. He’s the one,” and then starts speaking Spanish. Jesse tells Saul to speak English and he asks, “Lalo didn’t send you?” He’s relieved when Jesse says no and says, “Oh, thank God.”

Clearly, Saul believes Lalo is alive and out to get him. But is he?

Fans are really worried about Kim Wexler

Probably the most popular character on Better Call Saul is Jimmy’s wife, Kim Wexler. Throughout most of the series, Kim serves as a moral compass for Jimmy, which helped endear her to fans. But then in season 5 things took a turn and now it seems Kim will be going to the dark side and pulling Jimmy along with her.

For a while fans feared Jimmy’s actions would get Kim killed. But now with her seemingly committed to taking down her former boss and Jimmy’s rival Howard Hamlin, even with treacherous actions, it could be that Kim finds a tragic fate of her own making.

Breaking Bad viewers already know that Mike and Gus will make it until the days of Heisenberg. But will Lalo stay in Mexico? Will Nacho finally flee with his father? Will Kim become Jimmy’s shadow partner?

Better Call Saul Season 6 is slated to premiere in late 2021 or early 2022. For eager fans, that day can’t come soon enough.
