Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould's Breaking Bad prequel-sequel-parallel series Better Call Saul is set to return to AMC on Sunday, February 23, and Monday, February 24, for the show's two-night premiere return – something pretty much any self-respecting Saul fan already has etched into their brains by now.
But with two weeks to go, you might be worried that you won't have enough time to binge-watch the fourth season before Bob Odenkirk's Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman hangs up his shingle for season 5.
Totally understandable – we feel your pain.
Thankfully, the fine folks from Saul and AMC have relesed a recap video that gets you up-to-speed on the names, faces, and crimes you need to know before the show's return:
Here's a look back at the fifth season trailer (along with some preview images), offering viewers their first look at Hank's (Dean Norris) return (along with Steven Quezada, though not in the trailer) – as Jimmy's world begins taking on some very obvious Breaking Bad vibes. Viewers should also be on the lookout for the late Robert Forster's Ed Galbraith aka The Extractor, making an "appearance" via footage shot during El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.
