'Better Call Saul' Season 6 Episode 3: Good deaths or bad, Nacho makes ultimate sacrifice
For more than six years, ‘Better Call Saul’ has been treating viewers with some of the most thrilling content on television and now that the series is currently airing its sixth and final season, it’s no different. The first two episodes of the ongoing season showed us why it’s not a little brother to ‘Breaking Bad’ now and is an institution in itself. However, it’s Episode 3 that takes the series to a whole new level with intense long shots and suspenseful sequences.
The episode starts with Nacho (Michael Mando) running for his life and finding an oil tanker to hide. The twins are after him and they were about to find him when Nacho got the idea of holding his breath and getting beneath the oil that was present inside the tanker. The Twins were not able to find him and they go back. On the other hand, one of the lawyers Suzanne has found out about the real identity of Lalo Salamanca and feels that Saul knew about his real identity while representing him in the court. Kim (Rhea Seehorn) asks her if she is going to file a case against him. To which, she replies, “Not at the moment”.
Things are looking a little bleak for Saul now because if people find out that he knew who Lalo was, then he might have to forget about becoming a force to be reckoned with in the field of law. The conversation between Kim and Suzanne can be a game-changer while moving forward because now Kim knows that they are going after Saul as well.
Meanwhile, at the law firm, Saul is executing his audacious plan and effectively steals Howard’s car key and makes a copy of it. When Huell asks why is he doing this? Saul says that he is missing the bigger picture and they are doing “lord’s work here”. At home, Kim breaks the news of Lalo’s death to Saul and asks what should he do? Kim says that either he can be a “friend of the cartel” or a “rat”.
On the other hand, Nacho has finally made it out of Mexico. Yes, he is back and we have only one man to thank and it's Mike (Jonathan Banks). Mike and Gus talk to Nacho and rehearse Nacho’s story with him. In the story, he has to say that he was hired by Peruvian soldiers and has been working for them for over a year now. They reach the place with Mike ready in distance with his sniper. The Twins and Hector are there and it was time for something drastic to happen. When Don Bolsa asked Nacho who was behind the assassination, he told the same story. He doesn’t take Gus’s name and calls him a joke. Hector knew something was wrong, but Nacho lost his mind and said that he is the wheelchair because of him (Nacho).
In the end, Nacho manages to free himself with a small piece of glass and puts his gun on Bolsa's head. When it looked like, he would once again get out of here, he did the unthinkable and shot himself. The episode ended with a twist and now, one of the most extraordinary characters on the show had died.
'Better Call Saul' Season 6 returns to AMC with a new episode every Mondy at 9 pm EST.
