With Better Call Saul’s third season behind us, we decide to look forward. Specifically, 10 months forward, to season four!
Yes, Better Call Saul just completed its third season. No, it hasn’t yet been renewed for a fourth one yet. Still, we’re taking some time to think about the plot lines we’re most excited for next season.
Jimmy and Kim on sabbatical
The third season of Better Call Saul saw both Jimmy and Kim’s law careers hit unexpected bumps. Due to Chuck’s (perhaps justified) meddling, Jimmy ended up having his law license suspended for 12 months. As for Kim, burning the candle at both ends resulted in her falling asleep at the wheel and crashing her car. After escaping with a broken arm and some scratches, she ultimately decided it was time to take a break from her busy life. Assuming season 4 picks up where the third left off, what will Jimmy and Kim be up to next year? Personally, I could see them pulling some similar cons to the one they pulled in the season 2 premiere. Kim objected to taking part in one this past season, but perhaps her new laid back attitude will change her opinion on cons. Gisele and Viktor forever!
Where does Nacho go from here?
Season three saw Nacho become fed up with his life working for the cartel as it became more and more dangerous for himself and his family. This led to Nacho crafting and enacting a semi-successful plan to remove Hector Salamanca from the equation. Now, when season 4 debuts, what will his next steps be? As we know, Hector Salamanca’s heart attack/stroke doesn’t kill him, but does leave him incapable of walking and verbal communication. But what does that mean for the future of Nacho’s cartel career or his father’s business? Additionally, with Gus Fring aware of Nacho’s true intentions, what will he do with that information? Unfortunately, we’ll be waiting quite a while to find out.
Chuck McGill: The fallout
Better Call Saul’s third season concluded with the emotional scene of Chuck McGill (most likely) killing himself. Chuck’s suicide is sure to impact the plot lines of many characters in season 4, most notably Howard, Kim and Jimmy. It’s anyone’s guess how Jimmy will take the death of his brother, especially considering Chuck’s last words to him were “the truth is…you never mattered all that much to me.” My guess is that Jimmy’s initial reaction will be devastation, but I wonder how quickly he’ll move on from it.
