“Better Call Saul” Season 3’s final episode left its fans on the edge of their seat with a major cliffhanger. As its last scene featured a fire inside Chuck McGill’s (Michael McKean) home, a lot of people assume that he is already dead.

With that, fans expect Better call saulSeason 4 to start where its previous chapter left off confirming his demise. But in an interview with Indie Wire, Bob Odenkirk, who plays the titular role Jimmy McGill, revealed that he is also not sure of his on-screen brother’s fate.

Jimmy’s guilt and responsibility

Although Bob Odenkirk didn’t confirm the death of Chuck, he strongly believes that Michael McKean’s character should be killed off.

“If Chuck is dead, and I believe he is, I don't think it's possible to not think you had something to do with that,” he told Indie Wire. To recall, the 69-year-old star’s role had been kicked out of his own company. The firm was everything to him, and he was very upset about what happened.

His position as a lawyer, which was also the integral part of him, was also ruined. “His pride and self-image were completely wrapped up in that,” the original “Breaking Bad” star explained. So, as Jimmy has a lot to do with what happened to Chuck, from being booted to destroying his reputation, he now feels guilty and responsible for his brother’s death.

With that, this might be a clear indication that Chuck’s death will greatly affect Jimmy.

Thus, his much-awaited transformation to become the criminal lawyer Saul Goodman, may finally be seen in “Better Call Saul” Season 4.

Another reason that may cause Jimmy’s transformation

Moreover, aside from Chuck’s alleged death, Kim Wexler’s (Rhea Seehorn) life was also put in jeopardy in “Better Call Saul” Season 3's finale.

Jimmy’s love interest had been in a car crash, which could have been the cause of her death. However, she survived the accident and will definitely be back in “Better Call Saul” Season 4. Cinema Blend reported that this, too, might ignite Bob Odenkirk’s role’s transformation to become Saul Goodman.

Fans are now looking forward to the coming of the “Breaking Bad” spinoff series’ fourth chapter as this might feature their much-awaited transformation and appearance of the criminal lawyer.

Although some mock its slow transition, which took three seasons before the original “BrBa” character emerged, it has tackled the complete narrative of Jimmy’s past that caused him to become the evil lawyer.
