Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 5 Recap: Let’s Punch It Out!


Better Call Saul’s Season 6 is tying up all the loose ends from previous seasons as Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) finally commits to becoming the crooked lawyer Saul Goodman. In Episode 5, “Black and Blue,” we see the return of characters who were central to previous seasons’ development. Also, the pieces keep moving on two dangerous games that are still disconnected but very close to becoming irreversibly intertwined.

In one corner of Better Call Saul’s Season 6, Saul and Kim (Rhea Seehorn) keep working to destroy Howard Hamlin’s (Patrick Fabian) reputation. On the other side, Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) fights for survival as Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton) gets ready to strike. While Episode 5 slows down the season’s pace, we finally get to see how Howard will get back at Jimmy/Saul. More importantly, we finally learn what Lalo has been doing since Season 6’s second episode. So, as we get closer to the explosive confrontations that this season teases, let’s recap the main events of Episode 5.
