It’s almost been two years since the last “Better Call Saul” season, and fans are getting antsy. Tony Dalton, who stars on the show as cartel boss Eduardo “Lalo” Salamanca, answered some queries about “Better Call Saul” while promoting “Hawkeye,” his new show on Disney+.
According to Dalton, the new season is going to be “out of control.” He told Collider, “You have no idea what’s going to happen. It’s out of control what these guys wrote. Out of control.” That’s all he said about “Better Call Saul,” but it’s enough to get the gears turning in fans’ heads.
Could this final season be similar to the final season of “Breaking Bad,” where multiple main characters died and something strange and crazy was happening every moment of nearly every episode? ScreenRant poses the idea that the unsuccessful assassination attempt on Lalo from last season could be setting up a deadly and violent final season. Will Lalo kill Nacho Varga, who betrayed him in the previous season, in retaliation? Only time, and the new season, will tell.

Along with Tony Dalton giving vague, unhelpful hints, Rhea Seehorn, who plays Kim Wexler, is doing it as well. Back in November, she teased a bit of what was to come in the 6th and final season. Speaking with Variety, she said, “whether I’m in scripts or not, I get to read them, and I can tell you that this season is insane. It’s going to blow people’s minds. I can’t wait for it to come out.”
The finale of season 5 saw a betrayal, an attempted assassination, and a possible turning point for Kim Wexler. First, Nacho Varga betrayed Lalo, and let the assassins into Lalo’s home on Gus’ orders. Nacho escapes the house in the firefight, but Lalo knows it was him who stabbed him in the back.
Second, a possible transformation could be in the cards for Kim; she plans to force a resolution of the Sandpiper case that will ruin Howard Hamlin. There’s a bit of repeating imagery in the scene when Kim tells Jimmy of her plan; she uses a similar finger-gun gesture that Jimmy used when he decided to go under the name Saul Goodman. Could this mean a big change for Kim? She’s shown that she’s willing to fight for the little guy, but is she doing it for the right reasons? Or just to spite Howard?
Whatever season 6 brings, the stars of “Better Call Saul” are sure that things are going to be off the wall crazy from start to finish. Our fingers are crossed that the show really delivers on its promises.
