‘Better Call Saul’ has a cliffhanger to resolve
In the latest episode, Nacho Varga joined Lalo for a trip to Lalo’s family home in Mexico. Unbeknownst to Lalo, Nacho had been ordered by Gus Fring to assist in a hit on him.
One night, Nacho snuck out and unlocked a gate to allow Gus’ assassins inside. Lalo managed to survive, but many of his relatives were killed in the brutal ambush. In one of the last scenes of Better Call Saul Season 5, Lalo was seen walking away from the compound with Nacho and revenge on his mind.

In the new teaser trailer for Better Call Saul Season 6, shared on the show’s Twitter page, police and forensic experts appear to be on the scene of the attack. The menacing Leonel and Marco Salamanca arrive in their signature suits and boots, cutting through the scene without incident to make their way inside the home. “Mark your calendar,” the caption reads in part.
While the release date for Better Call Saul Season 6 is still uncertain, Bob Odenkirk, who plays Saul Goodman, promised the show would return “soon.”
“Someday…SOON,” he wrote in a tweet in response to the trailer. “It’s a helluva great season. Our best…”
The could be ‘a fair amount of violence’ in season 6
In a past interview with Collider, Odenkirk opened up about the final season. At the time, he wasn’t aware of all of the details. (As a fan of the show himself, he held off on reading the full script as long as he could to avoid spoiling it.) But he believed there would be “a fair amount of violence” in it.
“I’m finding out script by script [how the season goes],” he shared. “I’m told that the wheels come off in Season 6 and it explodes in a million directions. That sounds to me like there’s a fair amount of violence, but I don’t know for a fact.”
Meanwhile, Tony Dalton (Lalo) told Collider the season would be “out of control.” Though he didn’t elaborate, he noted when asked what he thought would happen to Nacho that he should be really “scared” of what Lalo might do to him. “I think he’s dead! He should be really scared,” he told Entertainment Weekly.
We’ll see what happens when Better Call Saul returns. In the meantime, stream the first few seasons now on Netflix.
