Breaking Bad viewers have been following Saul Goodman's journey from former conman to a sleazy attorney since 2015. It's been incredible and intriguing to watch him develop into such a terrible and morally damaged character. Co-creator Peter Gould, however, warns that Better Call Saul Season 6 will be "upsetting."
Better Call Saul Season 6 is 'upsetting,' according to Peter Gould
When Entertainment Weekly asked Peter Gould to describe Better Call Saul Season 6, he used a variety of terms to construct a picture of the season:
“Whipsaw, rug-pulling, there’s even some gaslighting,” he said. “It’s also devastating. Upsetting.”
Viewers will also learn "how far [Kim] is willing to go" in her plot against Howard, according to Gould.
“You find out how determined she is, how far she’s willing to go. You find out how perceptive she is about the world, but also how perceptive she is about herself…. There’s infinite potential inside Kim Wexler, both for good and for evil,” Gould explained.
“She’s such a remarkable person. She’s someone who is so giving of herself, who cares so much about the world around her, who’s trying to do good in the world. But she also has this willingness to disregard the means that she’s going to to get the ends that she wants.”
What awaits Saul and Kim in Better Call Saul Season 6?
The internet has been inundated with ideas about what will happen to the characters in Better Call Saul Season 6, particularly Saul and Kim. Predictions range from Kim duping Saul and fleeing with the Sandpiper Crossing funds to their arrests and even deaths.
Gould, of course, couldn't say if Kim and Saul would survive. He did, however, state that whatever occurs will be "well-earned."
Better Call Saul Season 6 airs on AMC on Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.
