“Better Call Saul” started with the events just a few years before “Breaking Bad.” With the spin-off catching up to the time line of the main series quickly, the end appears to be near. According to a new theory, the show will end with a connection to the main show.

According to Screen Rant, the highly successful “Better Call Saul” series may be coming to an end with Season 6. The show has aired four seasons, with  the fifth one scheduled to premiere in 2020, which means there is still a lot of the story to tell before the TV series comes to an end.

How will the spin-off series end? According to the theory, the show may end with the first meeting between Saul (Bob Odenkirk) and Walter White (Bryan Cranston), as seen in “Breaking Bad.” The scene could be the lawyer entering the building to take on his new client Badger (Matt Jones) or the scene where Walter White enters Saul’s office.

With this ending, there will still be scope for the future of the lawyer because “Better Call Saul” has been exploring the events that happen after “Breaking Bad” ended. It remains to be seen if this future will be explored further in the first film of the franchise that is currently being developed.

According to Screen Rant, Saul’s journey in the spin-off series mirrors the journey of Walter White in some ways. Each morally questionable decision the lawyer has taken in each season has taken him one-step closer to becoming someone “despicable,” even though at the core he is a good man. Walter White’s journey ended with his death, but it remains to be seen where life will take the lawyer.

Another big character from the “Braking Bad” series who is expected to return in the next season of “Better Call Saul” is Hector Salamanca (Mark Margolis), Screen Rant reported. The businessman Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) is also expected to return in Season 5.
