Better Call Saul series 6 *Contains spoilers*
156

MargotMoon · 18/04/2022 20:19

Is anyone else really excited about the new series tomorrow? I'm not sure if it's going to be a weekly episode or available to binge, but the trailer looks brilliant.

I can't wait to see what happens next although I'm dreading it too, as it inevitably will be the end of Kim in one way or another.

Title edited by MNHQ to add a spoiler alert

Am plonking myself here! I’ve been watching the previous seasons recently. I’m just starting on Season 5. Am thinking of letting episodes stack up for season 6, not sure if I can do the “wait a week” thing!

I am loving it, maybe even more than BB. It’s great seeing his back story, plus that of other great characters. And seeing important locations etc.

I’m really looking forward to this. It’s one of the best series I have ever seen. I am very worried for Kim.

Maybe I’m in denial, but I’m hoping Kim moves to another city at some point, rather than being killed…

Nacho on the other hand….

Been waiting for weeks for this day. I assume it’s like previous seasons and it will drop one episode per week?

This is what I’ve found about how episodes will be released:

In the UK, the first two episodes of Better Call Saul season 6 will premiere on Tuesday 19th April 2022. The next five episodes will air weekly.

After a short break, the final six episodes will start on 12th July 2022.

I understand the first 2 episodes are available from 9am today in UK. After that, it will be one per week.

I think it’s being released at an odd time of day because of something to do with co-ordinating with the US release which is also happening weekly.

Can’t wait until this evening when I will sit down and watch it.

And looking forward to having to wait a week for each episode. Hoping to have people in real life to discuss it with and on here too. Poor old Kim….it’s not going to be good.

There's two episodes on Netflix now, although I like the idea of saving them up and bingeing, if they are only releasing the first 6 and keeping back the final 7 for summer there doesn't seem any point, so I'll be going in later today!

So I guess if you haven't watched all of S5 yet @Furries you should give this thread a swerve until you have!

@YetAnotherNam Nacho is in BB though so we know he must survive at least up to that point, although the flash forwards to Cinnabon Gene in Nebraska might reveal other outcomes for some of the characters, I guess. Lalo on the other hand...Wink

This article is brilliant for anyone wanting to work out whereabouts (or should that be whenabouts?) everything is before diving in!

@MargotMoon, is he? I had no idea. I have the worst memory!

It’s so annoying, I’m currently abroad and for some reason the new episodes are not showing when I’m using VPN.

@YetAnotherNam Ah, perhaps he isn't? Mine is terrible too, even though I've watched BB three times I can't remember most of it...Grin

Perhaps it's the time difference?? Although presumably with a VPN that shouldn't matter? I know nothing about these things.

I absolutely loved Breaking Bad (except Season 5) but I watched Episode 1 of Series 1 of Better Call Saul and really didn't like it. Does it get better? Should I persevere?

Such a big fan of Kim. So nice to have a strong female character on tv for once

Persevere, I started watching it when it first came out and didn't really like it and have just gone back to it as everyone seemed to be raving about it, I'm on episode 6 now of series 1, it does get better

Has anyone watched it yet? I watched the 1st episode. I found it a bit confusing but would have struggled more if I hadn’t looked at the timeline linked in a post above and also watched a video clip that did a speedy run through the last season.

As I say, I’ve only watched 1 of the 2 episodes, but I liked the start of the scam against Howard. Lalo is very scary again.

I watched both last night - episode 2 was brilliant, not that the first one wasn't good but it was more about establishing where everyone is and setting things up for what is to come. Nacho's shoot out with the twins had me hopping around the living room

I spend more of my time worrying about Nacho than is healthy.😁

I promised myself I was only going to watch one episode last night, but of course couldn’t resist…… now I have to wait for E3. So many amazing characters, Kim and “Saul”, Fring, the twins, Mike, Uncle Hector, it is a joy to watch, though I am having conniptions about Nacho, they wouldn’t would they? They haven’t have they? Though if they manage to stitch up Howard I will be a happy bunny.

Nacho is mentioned in BB but doesn’t actually appear in it. So not sure how safe that leaves him…

Watching the 2 episodes tonight. Can’t wait!

Poor Howard! 🤣 Half of me is laughing my arse off at it and the other half thinks it's terrible and he doesn't deserve it. Just one example of how genius this show is, nothing is black and white/cut and dried.

Loved it so much! I really hope Nacho survives but his chances are slim. Is it ok to post spoilers? Not that there are many so far.

Can we discuss? I’m posting SPOILERS FROM NOW SO DONT READ IF HAVENT SEEN EPISODE 2

I’m totally confused. So Mike planted the name of the motel they have holed Nacho up in Nacho’s safe so that the cartel/Salamanca’s will find it and then kill Nacho? But surely if the Salamanca’s get to Nacho they will torture him till he admits that he was working for Gus? So isn’t it in Gus interest to kill Nacho first before the cartel get to him? In which case why haven’t they done that rather than leading them straight to Nacho?!

Its too convoluted and I don’t understand why they’re doing what they’re doing!!!

SPOILERS too so don't read on if you haven't seen!

I'm not sure if Mike was trying to help Nacho in some kind of way, I agree it's very hard to keep up. Also I totally missed the fact that Lalo killed that guy, the one with the beard and moustache and then took his body to pass it off as his own! And finally do we think it was Lalo following Kim and Jimmy at the end in the car?
