The Ending Of Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 2 - Latest Updates on Release Date, Cast, and Plot in 2022

The first episode of Season 6 of “Better Call Saul” is like a slow-burning wick slowly approaching dynamite. We haven’t seen much of the fallout from the Season 5 finale yet, but it’s evident that fireworks are on the way, with Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) and Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) laying the groundwork for their retribution on Howard Hamlin (Patrick Fabian) by concealing narcotics in his country club locker.

Nacho (Michael Mando) is also on the run from the cartel, with Lalo (Tony Dalton) pursuing him down while making everyone assume he’s dead following the events of the Season 5 finale. In “Carrot and Stick,” everyone’s lives and livelihoods are on the line, and the show’s last season is already heating up. It’s a good thing AMC decided to show the opening two hours of the season back to back.

Revenge has been a recurring motif in “Better Call Saul,” and Season 6, Episode 1 is no exception. Saul and Kim seek vengeance on Howard, while Lalo wants vengeance on those who attempted to murder him.

Where will their quests for vengeance lead them? After all, we don’t know what will happen to Kim, Nacho, or Lalo, so they could end up paying the ultimate price to avenge those who have mistreated them.

Now let’s see where Season 6, Episode 2 of “Better Call Saul” leaves our band of antiheroes and villains.

Saul and Kim lay the framework for the assassination of Howard.

“Carrot and Stick” is a throwback for lovers of “Better Call Saul.” Saul pays a visit to Craig (Jeremy Shamos) and Betsy Kettleman (Julie Ann Emery), who hasn’t been seen since they were accused of embezzlement in the first season of the show. Craig took the fall and went to jail at the end of the story. He’s apparently out now, and he and his wife are running a tax preparation business.

Saul takes advantage of the Kettlemans and a false promise that they will clear Craig’s name by giving them a story about how Howard Hamlin was under the influence of narcotics when he was representing Craig.

They go around town spreading the rumor that Howard is on drugs, but no lawyer will take the case because there is no proof. Regardless, Saul has completed his mission. “Facts may be so deceiving, where rumors, real or untrue, are often revealing,” a great character once said.

By the end of the episode, Saul and Kim have returned to the Kettlemans, and they’re furious. Saul offers them money to induce them to withdraw the case, but they refuse. This is when Kim contacts an accomplice who has the ability to prosecute the Kettlemans for tax fraud once more. They give up because they don’t want to walk down that path again.

Surprisingly, the episode hints that Kim has gone evil even more than Saul. Saul was willing to provide them with hush money, but Kim puts their lives in jeopardy. Even Saul is taken aback by the maneuver, but he nevertheless hands over the money. How far would Kim go to exact revenge on Howard if she was willing to threaten the Kettlemans?

Nacho has been brought in alive.

When Nacho checks into the motel in the opening episode of Season 6, he thinks he’s safe. All he has to do now is hide and wait, but in a world where everyone is looking for him, he will undoubtedly be discovered. It doesn’t take long for the Salamanca cousins and their gang to come across him, resulting in a full-fledged shootout in the area.

At first glance, it looks like many of the crew members are unconcerned about whether they bring him in alive or dead. One of the cousins, on the other hand, is ready to shoot one of their own collaborators, informing another crew member, “Vivo,” which means “alive.” Why would they want him back alive after his perceived disrespect to the Salamanca family?

It all starts with the Season 6 opener. Hector Salamanca (Mark Margolis) warned Lalo that if he wanted to revenge on his dignity by attacking Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), he needed proof that Gus was the one who did it. Nacho is the only person they have who may potentially flip on Gus, therefore they need him alive… at least for now.

Who knows what Nacho’s fate will be after that? He doesn’t appear in any episodes of “Breaking Bad,” so things don’t appear to be looking up.

A threatening phone call

After we witness Nacho being captured by the Salamancas, we see Gus, Tyrus (Ray Campbell), and Mike meeting. Gus has discovered that Lalo is still alive, therefore they must go on the defense in order to survive. Mike is cool, calm, and collected as always; he knows the game better than anyone, and he explains that Lalo will only pursue him if he has a legitimate cause.

If Nacho squeals, Lalo has all the information he needs to blame Gus for the assassination attempt and pursue him. It might spark a full-fledged turf war between the cartels, or “Tuesday,” as Mike calls it.
