Better Call Saul Season 4: Bob Odenkirk Thinks Aaron Paul’s Jesse Show Up Eventually | SDCC 2018

AMC’s Better Call Saul Season 4 is due to hit screen beginning August 6, and many of the shows main players were in attendance this week at San Diego Comic-Con. Better Call Saul follows the adventures of Jimmy McGill a lawyer and ex con-man who will eventually develop into the infamous Saul Goodman, shady and very criminal lawyer from the classic Breaking Bad show, also from AMC.

Whilst to begin with the show focussed on a completely different set of characters to Breaking Bad (apart from Jimmy and Mike Ehrmantraut), as the show progresses and moves closer towards the timeline of Breaking Bad Season 1, it is inevitable that more and more character from Breaking Bad could make an appearance. Many have done so already including the deadly and cold Gus Frings (Giancarlo Esposito). However, the two lead characters from Breaking Bad have not yet shown up, Jesse Pinkman and Walter White.  Speaking at the SDCC press conference, Bob Odenkirk, who plays Jimmy/Saul, doesn’t think it will be long before Aaron Paul’s Jesse shows up in the prequel show.

“I do. I’m speaking as a fan. I don’t see how we don’t. Here’s what I know. I know that Dean — Hank Schrader — knows Saul, because when they meet in the hallway, they give each other s**t. They know each other, if you’ll remember the first time. So Hank knows Saul, and I think because of what Jesse says for Saul — “you don’t need a criminal lawyer, you need a CRIMINAL lawyer” — obviously Jesse saw Saul’s commercial on TV. But I don’t think that’s enough for Jesse to recommend they to go to Saul. It’s just a commercial. I think he knew Saul and knew Saul’s reputation, so I think those two characters should meet.”

This was always an inevitability as far as I am concerned, and I have always expected Jesse to show up for the exact reasons that Odenkirk gives. In fact, about the only character I would not want to show up in Better Call Saul is Walter White himself Bryan Cranston, simply because prior to Breaking Bad‘s opening Season, Walter was a character who would have nothing to do with this side of society.

Not long to go now folks, are you excited for Season 4 of Better Call Saul like me, and which Breaking Bad characters would you like to see show up? Let us know in the usual place below.
