The worlds of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul are slowly emerging. Saul’s world is closer to that of Walter White than ever before. Better Call Saul season 5 incorporated some prognosticated of the scene that introduces Jimmy McGill aka Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) in Breaking Bad season 2.
Jimmy McGill is now a practising lawyer under the name of Saul Goodman
Mike and Gus join forces to help Gus with his drug trade and battling the Mexican drug cartel, and Hank Schrader is now a part of the show too.
Better Call Saul is one kind of a show, just because it’s a prequel and a spin off series of Breaking Bad doesn’t mean it does not have content of its own. It is telling a great story around the life of Saul Goodman AKA Jummy McGill before he works with Walter White and Jesse Pinkman (Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, respectively)
With that being said, a big part of the joy for the audience are the Easter eggs and references to Breaking Bad. Since while Better Call Saul we know know exactly where its main character has to end up, and who he might meet along the way, it has a lot of room for Easter eggs and it also paves way to the story of Saul Goodman.
We get to see such an instance in the latest episode of Better Call Saul Episode 5 called Dedicado a Max. Saul’s story in the episode revolved around his and Kim’s Trick against Mesa Verde, with Saul Goodman serving as the lawyer for Mr. Acker played by Barry Corbin. In futile attempt to teach Mesa Verde a lesson Saul gets help from Steven Ogg’s Sobchak, a criminal cum private investigator. Even though there is absolutely no link between Sobchak and Walt & Jesse, his line does show this is fairly standard practice in the Albuquerque criminal underworld,
