‘Better Call Saul’ Raises the Stakes in AMC’s First Season 6 Trailer (VIDEO)
The first look raises the stakes for Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) who continues his transformation into everyone’s favorite criminal lawyer, Saul Goodman. Along for the journey is Jimmy’s now-wife, and fellow lawyer, Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) who is going through an existential crisis of her own.
“You ever feel like you’re being followed?” Kim asks Jimmy while sitting in bed in the trailer, below. “Well, you know what they say, the wicked flee when no man pursueth,” Jimmy responds, hinting at their recent shady dealings, whether that’s within their lawyering or Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton) connection is unclear.
“You think we’re wicked?” Kim asks, wondering if they’re really wrong for the way they’ve handled things. It’s certainly a question and conundrum that they’ll be forced to ask themselves in this dramatic final chapter. And if things didn’t seem alarming enough, Howard (Patrick Fabian) appears to be working on building a legal case against Jimmy.
In the meantime, Nacho (Michael Mando) is on the run after coordinating with Gus (Giancarlo Esposito) to allow gunmen into Lalo’s compound last season, where almost everyone was massacred. All three of the men as well as Mike (Jonathan Banks) will find themselves locked into a game of cat and mouse with mortal stakes.
From the cartel to the courthouse, from Albuquerque to Omaha, Season 6 tracks Jimmy, Saul, and his post-Breaking Bad alias, Gene. Some additional highlights in the trailer include Saul’s signature statue of liberty roof ornament, hinting at his quickly approaching gig as Albuquerque’s most recognizable lawyer.
