AMC’s critically acclaimed TV show, “Better Call Saul,” is being sorely missed. The cast is currently shooting Season 3 which doesn’t air before February 2017.
Last season’s shocking finale ended with Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) brother Chuck (Michael McKean) recording him while he confessed to committing a crime. Jimmy, who would later be known as Saul Goodman, admitted to messing up the Mesa Verde paperwork so that his girlfriend Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) would get the client.
Elsewhere, cartel boss Hector Salamanca (Mark Margolis) continued threatening Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) to cut a deal with the police so that he could get his nephew Tuco (Raymond Cruz) out of a lengthy prison sentence.
Here’s our wish list for “Better Call Saul” Season 3:
1. Gus Fring
Although seeing a vicious and scheming Hector was a nice surprise last season, we’re dying to see the supremely talented Giancarlo Esposito reprise his role as businessman and drug smuggler Gustavo “Gus” Fring. The series may actually bring him back since the first letter of each episode’s title in Season 2 spells out “Fring’s Back.”
2. Jimmy vs. Chuck Showdown
Chuck plays by the rules. Jimmy doesn’t. But for once, Chuck discarded his rule-abiding personality and did what his brother would do: Record a felon confessing to his crime without his knowledge. We would love to finally see the brothers battle it out in “Better Call Saul” and something tells us this is certainly going to happen in Season 3.
3. How Hector Becomes A Paraplegic
We know from watching “Breaking Bad” that Hector will eventually become a mute paraplegic. However, it isn’t known how he becomes like that. Does Mike take a shot at him and paralyzes him from the waist down? Or does he become a paraplegic when a drug deal goes bad?
4. More Kim Wexler
Rhea Seehorn expertly portrays the hardworking former Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill attorney who finally became her own boss and landed a large client. It will also be interesting to see her relationship with Jimmy/Saul Goodman develop in Season 3.
5. At Least A Fleeting Glimpse Of Walter White Or Jesse Pinkman
Yes, the timeline doesn’t add up – “Better Call Saul” kicks off six years before the events of “Breaking Bad.” Still, it would be nice to see at least a glimpse of Pinkman (Aaron Paul) or White (Bryan Cranston) before they partnered up and cooked blue meth.
“Better Call Saul” returns with Season 3 in 2017.
