Walt & Jesse’s Better Call Saul Returns Are Very Satisfying, Says Composer

Walt & Jesse's Better Call Saul Returns Are Very Satisfying, Says Composer

The return of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in Better Call Saul season 6 will be “very satisfying” and “organic,” according to composer Dave Porter.

The return of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in Better Call Saul season 6 will be “very satisfying” and “organic,” according to composer Dave Porter. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul starred in 5 seasons of AMC’s prestige crime drama Breaking Bad as the mismatched duo. At the start of the series, Walt is a dispirited high school chemistry teacher recently diagnosed with stage-three lung cancer who decides to team up with his former student, Jesse, to manufacture and sell crystal meth in order to secure his family’s financial future.

In Breaking Bad season 2, Walt and Jesse procure the services of the sleazy strip-mall attorney Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) who advises the pair in the drug trade, helps them launder money, and introduces them to his connections in the Cartel. Even before Breaking Bad ended, writers Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould began developing a spinoff series for the fan-favorite criminal lawyer. Now, over five and a half seasons, Better Call Saul has chronicled Jimmy McGill’s slow descent from an earnest public defender to the unscrupulous lawyer introduced in the preceding series. Meanwhile, fans have patiently awaited the inevitable return of the beloved Breaking Bad protagonists.

During a recent interview with Forbes, Porter opened up about the return of Walt and Jesse in the remaining episodes of Better Call Saul season 6. Though he wasn’t able to reveal too much, Porter did promise that their returns will feel “very organic” and be “very satisfying” for audiences, as he believes Gould and Gilligan are “very good at doing this.” Read Porter’s full comment below:

I can only point to what Mr. Gould has said. I wouldn’t want to say more than that, other than to say that in the fashion with which they are very good at doing this, it feels very organic and very satisfying.

As Porter mentions in his comment, Gould made the surprise announcement that Walt and Jesse will return in Better Call Saul season 6 prior to the premiere. The first half of the season has come and gone on AMC without any sight of Walt or Jesse, meaning their eventual returns will have to be in the final batch of six episodes that won’t premiere until July 11. Much about the circumstances surrounding their returns remains a mystery, but if Porter’s comment is any indication, it will absolutely be worth the intense secrecy and long wait.

Porter is a veteran composer of the Breaking Bad universe, scoring the original series, its prequel, and Netflix’s El Camino movie. He has likely already seen Better Call Saul’s scenes featuring Walt and Jesse in order to score them, which is why he’s able to speak about them firsthand. Porter has also watched as Gilligan and Gould have successfully reincorporated various characters from Breaking Bad into Better Call Saul, mainly Mike Ehrmantraut, Gus Fring, and Hank Schrader. Therefore, there’s no reason to believe Walt and Jesse’s returns won’t be equally as satisfying.
