Many fates are hanging in the balance as the new season starts
The first half of Better Call Saul season 6 is out, and we are slowly reaching the big end. The finale was too big to be contained within a single season, or the creators did the two-part plan – similar to its predecessor Breaking Bad. Here is a review on the first two episodes that was given to critics.
The story moves forward by firing off all cylinders, the cast is brilliant, and the creators know what they’re doing. Similar to its predecessor, Saul manages to stay consistent, and we do not feel like certain bits were unnecessary. The characters continue to grow more and more complex, and we get to understand very clearly how and why they ended up the way they were.
Season 6 picks up right after the previous season’s finale, and there is no chance for anything calm to happen. The pulse-pounding happens from the get-go, and you are snatched along for the ride.
The Secret Gem in Better Call Saul
One of the true standouts of these two seasons is Rhea Seehorn’s performance as Kim. Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman is one charismatic man, and he can easily overshadow his co-stars. But Seehorn manages to own the scene just as well as he does, and is now looking to outperform him. We get to see Kim’s morals being stretched thin, and we cannot say if she is with Jimmy throughout the end, or becomes his worst nightmare. The true questions of why she didn’t appear in Breaking Bad arise from here.
Speaking of Breaking Bad, we can also expect cameos from lead stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul by the end. But there is time for that, and until then, just absorb the goodness that Saul and his contacts have to offer.
