Season two of Better Call Saul wrapped with the finale, “Klick,” and the hardest part about predicting what will happen in season three is that it hasn’t been written yet. Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould treat each season as a separate entity, and even they will admit — and have — that they’re as excited about the next season as anyone because they don’t know what’s going to happen until they figure it out themselves. No show, however, writes themselves out of a corner better than Saul, and that has a lot to do with the fact that they spend six months in the writer’s room to write 10 episodes.
At the end of season three, they have both written themselves into a corner and opened up a number of possibilities. With Mike in particular, the possibilities are endless with Tio and the arrival of Gus Fring. The only problem is, they can’t kill off Tio, although they can somehow induce a stroke. With Jimmy, they haven’t left a lot of wiggle room. Chuck has him dead to rights with the tape-recorded confession, but we also know that Chuck probably doesn’t turn him in because Jimmy did not get disbarred. The biggest fear I have is that Chuck somehow uses it to take down Kim, and the saddest thing that could happen to Better Call Saul would be the loss of season two breakout star, Rhea Seehorn.
What we can almost be certain of, however, is that Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould will crack some great storylines and that season three will be every bit as good as this season, because Gould and Gilligan don’t fail. They don’t allow it.
Here, however, are a few things from the finale you may have missed, and a couple of hints at what we will see in season three.
In fact, Gilligan and Gould also confirmed that the note left on Mike’s car at the end of the episode was from Gus Fring; if not the man himself, then at least someone under his direction (like Victor).
