Better Call Saul Season 6 Part 2 Plot
Better Call Saul showrunner Peter Gould talked to TV Insider, quoting, It’s one of the most nail-biting hours of TV I’ve ever seen in my life… What exactly is he doing at their apartment? Lalo’s got definite intentions, let’s put it that way.
But the hope is that you’ll see these left turns and also think, “There’s no other way that could have gone.” By the time we’re done, you’re not going to see Breaking Bad the same way. Take a look at a quick recap of the Better Call Saul Season 6 below:
The upcoming season is expected to pick up from the finale episode of the first part, Plan and Execution, released on May 23, 2022. The episode was directed and written by Thomas Schnauz. The episode was estimated to ve viewed by 1.19 million US viewers. The official synopsis of the episode states, “A last-minute snag threatens to derail Jimmy and Kim’s meticulously laid plans; Mike and Gus prepare for a confrontation; Howard’s investigation finally yields results; Lalo seizes an opportunity.”
In the episode, the viewers got to see that, Jimmy and Kim rush to reenact their photos with the actor playing Casimiro on the day of the Sandpiper settlement conference and then give them to Howard’s private investigator, who is actually working for them. On seeing the pictures, Howard takes Caldera’s medicine and humiliates himself in front of the conference by being irrational and accusing Casimiro falsely of taking a bribe.
Cliff and Howard are compelled to accept a less-than-desirable settlement in the Sandpiper lawsuit. Gus watches over Gus’ washing. Hector warns Hector that he will attack Gus that evening after learning that Gus listens in on Hector’s phone calls. Gus plays a recording of the conversation for Mike before diverting his security personnel from less important targets to guard Gus.
After putting the whole scam together, Howard confronts Jimmy and Kim at their apartment. Soon later, Lalo shows up with the intention of questioning Jimmy and Kim. Howard is shot in the head by Lalo while Kim begs him to go right away.
So, it is expected that this already established premise will lead to the seventh episode of Better Call Saul Season 6 classified as Part 2. It’s also speculated to pick up any potential cliffhangers and subplots in the first episode of the following season and dive right into this world with more new themes. By giving fans something different and unique to look at instead of the same old plotlines. In order to create the best story while prioritizing these cherished characters, the network must entice viewers to stream the series for a satisfactory conclusion.

Better Call Saul Official Synopsis
Better Call Saul is the prequel to the award-winning series Breaking Bad, set six years before Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) became Walter White’s lawyer. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and often against, Jimmy is “fixer” Mike Erhmantraut (Jonathan Banks), a beloved character introduced in Breaking Bad. The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts “criminal” in “criminal lawyer.”
