Better Call Saul Season 6 Recap
Have trouble keeping up with what’s going on in Better Call Saul season 6? There is no need to worry about anything!
Jimmy and Kim’s Plot for Howard
As Jimmy and Kim prepare to carry out their plan to frame their rival Howard Hamlin for “something unforgivable,” the bulk of season 6 of Better Call Saul has dealt with. It’s not clear what this plan entails. But no one has yet informed us. Here’s an abbreviated version of what Jimmy and Kim have done so far in the finale, based on our best guesses.
Jimmy and Kim begin the season’s first two episodes by smearing Howard’s name with the help of Cliff Main, a colleague of Howard’s. Jimmy has the unwitting Kettlemans believe Jimmy has a drug problem, and when Cliff finds a baggie of fake cocaine in Howard’s locker, the unwitting Kettlemans immediately tell Jimmy about it.
However, it takes a major event in episode four to persuade Cliff that Howard is a cocaine abuser. Jimmy gets a spray tan, steals Howard’s car, and then throws a sex worker out of the car in front of Cliff while making a show of it.
Jimmy and Kim’s plan, however, is just getting started. They’ve dubbed it “D-Day,” and it’s set to take place in the midseason finale. This will entail Sandpiper litigation mediation, judge impersonation, and who knows what else.
Gus and Mike Batten Down the Hatches
When it comes to Better Call Saul, the story has been divided between Jimmy’s legal and criminal worlds for the vast majority of the show’s runtime. In season 6, apart from one notable exception, Kim and Mike remain estranged. So, what’s going on with Gus and Mike this time around?? There isn’t a whole lot here! That was the intention all along.
Gus discovers that his plan to have Lalo killed in his home in Mexico was a success, except for Lalo, in the season opener. Gus and Mike have conclusive proof that Lalo is still alive and planning his vengeance thanks to Hector Salamanca’s bizarre behaviour. That’s why Gus and his team have gone into lockdown mode.
There isn’t much else Gus does but work at Los Pollos Hermanos or stay at his heavily fortified home. Every property associated with Mike, Gus, and anyone else in their sphere is under constant surveillance by Mike’s “guys.”
Lalo, the Salamanca family’s most powerful member, has decided to take a more methodical approach to deal with Gus’s death. His uncle Hector convinced Lalo that Gus’s treachery needs to be proven before moving forward, so he decided to wait until the end of the Better Call Saul premiere to cross the border.
Lalo travels to Germany to meet Werner Ziegler’s wife, Margarethe, and one of his employees in the hope of finding proof of the meth superlab contractor’s involvement. We say our goodbyes to Lalo before the midseason finale with him enslaved by a German farm worker in a remote barn in the countryside.
R.I.P. Nacho Varga
Nacho Varga is one of the characters we know will not appear in “Plan and Execution.” Nacho finally succumbs to death in season 6 episode 3 after a long struggle to stay alive. For both the Salamancas and Gus Fring, his death is necessary. It’s possible to outlast and outrun a single cartel family, but two? Don’t bother.
A cartel member who will give Nacho a more humane death and ensure the safety of his father is chosen by Nacho. He goes out on his feet, blaming Gus for the murder of Lalo, and spitting in the Salamanca’s faces.
