The creators of Better Call Saul, AMC’s Breaking Bad spin-off prequel series, didn’t expect fans to figure out so quickly that the first letter of each Season 2 episode title form an anagram for “Fring’s Back.” Fans of Breaking Bad will recognize that as Giancarlo Esposito’s character Gus Fring, but will the actor be making an appearance on the new season of Saul?
A new viral ad seems to hint at the fact that Fring will be seen again, and they are using Los Pollos Hermanos as a front to get your interest. Check out the ad here below.
Producers are currently holding panels for the Television Critics Association summer tour. These panels are held annually before the fall season starts, and for many highly anticipated shows, comes all sorts of exciting news. Better Call Saul fans are surely anxious to see what Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) next move is after what happened at the season finale. The first series has earned some major acolytes, scoring seven Emmy nominations including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, and Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series.
Now AMC has released two brand new photos from season two, one from an episode, the other is a behind the scenes look.
Last night saw the Season 1 finale of AMC’s Better Call Saul, Episode 1.10 “Marco,” which tied up all the loose ends of this debut season. We saw more of Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) past and the type of man he was when he was “Slippin’ Jimmy” the con man; we learned more about his best friend and con partner Marco, who he goes to see again in Illinois after the devastating reveal from Episode 1.9; and we get a glimpse of the direction that Jimmy is going in for Season 2.
Now that Season 1 has come to a close, the cast and creators are taking a look at what’s to come in Season 2 with a new 4-minute video, which you can watch here below.
The Season 1 finale of AMC’s Better Call Saul, Episode 1.10 “Marco,” aired Monday night and it served mostly as an epilogue of sorts to the previous episode, which revealed what has been standing in Jimmy’s (Bob Odenkirk) way all these years.
The network has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which sees Jimmy talking to Mike in his parking clerk booth about what they could have done different in the Kettlemans situation. AMC has also released a behind-the-scenes featurette that’s a 5-minute “Inside Look” at the episode that brings us from the HMM law offices to Cicero, IL where Jimmy meets up with his old pal, Marco, and back.
Better Call Saul Episode 1.10 “Marco”

It’s been 10 episodes of Better Call Saul and all season long, we’ve been wondering how Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) went from Slippin’ Jimmy the con man to Jimmy McGill, Esq., graduate of online law school University of American Samoa, to criminal lawyer Saul Goodman on AMC’s Breaking Bad. In tonight’s season finale, Episode 1.10 “Marco,” all the details have been revealed and all the dots have been connected.
More so than ever, we see that Jimmy is a criminal at heart — but it’s a good heart. If you think of Mike Ehrmantraut’s (Jonathan Banks) speech in Episode 1.9 after the drug deal about “good criminals and bad cops, bad priests and honorable thieves,” we see the analogy to Jimmy. This is a man who’s smart and quick on his feet; people like him and are drawn to him; he’s a good talker; he can convince people to do things — but what to do with those powers? According to Jimmy’s brother Chuck (Michael McKean), Slippin’ Jimmy with a law degree is dangerous. And he’s right, a Slippin’ Jimmy who knows the law is someone to watch out for.
