In this summary, we’ll talk about the most crucial plot points and character changes from the fifth season of “Better Call Saul.”
Better Call Saul Season 5 Recap
AMC premieres Better Call Saul’s sixth and final season on April 18. Better Call Saul’s last season will be broken into two sub-seasons, starting on July 11 and ending on August 15. Better Call Saul is one of the few TV spin-offs that matches or exceeds the original, making it one of the year’s most anticipated shows.
Some fans prefer Better Call Saul’s sophisticated, systematic approach to Breaking Bad, frequently considered the best TV program ever. Better Call Saul follows Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) before and after Breaking Bad. Saul was a talented young lawyer, Jimmy McGill, before meeting Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul).
Jimmy, who has always been lured to risk and duplicity, surprises his successful brother Chuck (Michael McKean), co-founder of the respected law firm Hamlin Hamlin McGill. Jimmy becomes an unconventional but brilliant lawyer, yet he is drawn to the same moral grayness that would turn him into Saul Goodman.

”Better Call Saul also shows glimpses of Saul’s time in witness protection after Breaking Bad. In the last season of Better Call Saul, we may see more of the post-Breaking Bad reality, but the prequel storyline has raised enough doubts. Kim Wexler’s (Rhea Seehorn) fate is the most important. As the timelines converge, Better Call Saul must explain Kim’s destiny.
Season 5 was Better Call Saul’s best since it brought Jimmy’s fate closer. Saul corrupts Kim, reunites with Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks), and becomes Lalo Salamanca’s target in the ten episodes. After failing to kill Lalo, Nacho Varga (Michael Mando) is in danger as Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) expands his enterprise.
Mike grudgingly works for Gus, who is fighting Lalo. After Gus forces him to kill German scientist Werner Ziegler (Rainer Bock), Mike withdraws from Kaylee. Mike gathers evidence to help the police find Lalo, which Jimmy uses to accuse the DEA of manufacturing evidence.
Jimmy and Howard Hamlin (Patrick Fabian) grow apart throughout the season. Even after being hired at Hamlin Hamlin McGill, Jimmy blames Howard for his brother’s death. Howard worries that Jimmy has corrupted Kim. Jimmy and Kim disrupt Howard’s case against Sandpiper Crossing to get settlement money after their lives are threatened.
Howard is right about Kim. She uses Jimmy’s schemes to win the Mesa Verde case and win over reluctant clients. She still loves Jimmy. “JMM” marries them. They love each other, even though they married to get Jimmy spousal benefits when questioned about his past misdeeds.
Cranston and Paul’s return in the sixth season is intriguing. Better Call Saul has had several Breaking Bad alumni. Jimmy defends Lalo’s henchman Domingo Molina (Max Arciniega) in “The Guy For This,” where Hank Schrader (Dean Norris) intervenes. Nacho helps Gus assassinate Lalo, bringing him closer to Breaking Bad legend status.
In the Season 5 finale “Something Unforgivable,” Jimmy must inform Kim about how gunmen nearly killed him and Mike in the desert. When Jimmy returned home, clearly traumatized, Kim felt he was hiding something. In “Bad Choice Road,” Lalo stays in Albuquerque instead of returning to Mexico with The Cousins after brutally questioning them. He escapes his assassins but tells one survivor to tell Gus they succeeded.
Lalo and Gus go to war in Season 6, with Nacho in the middle. Mike is protecting Jimmy and Kim while helping Nacho with Gus. Kim prepares to attack Howard. Kim has 20 pro bono felony cases after leaving Hamlin Hamlin McGill. Jimmy is astonished by her obsession with avenging Howard. Will she follow his dark path?
