Following the trailer released earlier this month, AMC has debuted the first clip from Better Call Saul. This scene shows that, while they had a solid working relationship in Breaking Bad, Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) and Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) first met in a not so amicable way. Unfortunately for Saul, he gets a glimpse at Mike's special skill set while confronting him at a parking garage.
Better Call Saul is the prequel to the award-winning series Breaking Bad, set six years before Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) became Walter White's lawyer. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and often against, Jimmy is "fixer" Mike Erhmantraut (Jonathan Banks), a beloved character introduced in Breaking Bad. The series will track Jimmy's transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts "criminal" in "criminal lawyer."
Check out the first clip from the first episode of the Breaking Bad prequel, which sets up one of the great relationships in modern day television. What exactly happens between these two that makes Mike such a loyal helper in the future? Be sure to tune in February 8, as a whole other side of Breaking Bad is revealed.
