Bob Odenkirk on the Final Transformation of Jimmy to Saul in 'Better Call Saul'

“Better Call Saul” is a notoriously slow-paced show, but series lead Bob Odenkirk assured the more impatient fans that the upcoming Season 4 will finally reveal the transition from the idealistic underdog Jimmy McGill to the skeezy hustling Saul Goodman.

“Everything else is in place at the end of Season 4,” Odenkirk told Variety. “So if you’re waiting for him to become Saul, this is it. We’re doing it.”

Odenkirk also revealed that fan-favorite hitman Mike Ehrmantraut, played by Jonathan Banks, will finally cross paths once again after running separate, parallel story lines over the course of the show’s previous seasons, though not as much as Odenkrik said he would like.

“We’re together this season a bit, not enough for my taste, but there’s more to come after this,” Odenkirk said. “I would like to do a big scheme with Mike, and I know it’ll happen. We’re on the verge of it.”

The show is also famous for its intentionally placed Easter eggs, something the cast also enjoys, and the “Better Call Saul” cast assured fans to expect more to come in Season 4.

“There are some Easter eggs this season that I went to set to see myself that I just wanted to witness,” said Rhea Seehorn.

“Better Call Saul” Season 4 premieres on Aug. 6 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
