One of Breaking Bad's most violent scenes came in the 2012 episode "Gliding Over All," the final installment in the first part of the show's two-part final season. In it, Walter White had previously murdered longtime associate Mike Ehrmantraut, angry that Mike refused to provide him names of ten operatives in his crew, all in prison, who Mike had been paying for their silence to the authorities. By then Mike and the ten were on the radar of Walt's brother-in-law Hank Schrader (Dean Norris), DEA Albuquerque ASAC (Assistant Special Agent in Charge).
SPOILER ALERT: Do not read unless you've seen the latest episode of Better Call Saul.
The buzz is on about Better Call Saul, AMC's new prequel to Breaking Bad, stars Bob Odenkirk in a show that details what he was before becoming cocky, connected and brilliantly slithery Saul Goodman. The short answer: struggling Albuquerque lawyer Jimmy McGill. And the new series shows how and why he evolved. The series begins in the year 2002, when Walter White was healthy and Jesse Pinkman still (probably) a reluctant high school kid. Jonathan Banks, reprising his BB role as hitman/cleanup wizard, ex-cop Mike Ehrmantraut, is part of the new series.
