Anyone who's watched Vince Gilligan's "Better Call Saul" would know that the out of luck character, Saul Goodman, or as he is known in the spin off series, Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), is always fighting battles. And the newly released poster for "Better Call Saul" season 2 hints at a continuing agony tale that befits the protagonist of this show.
In the poster, Jimmy is seen walking up the road and "Better Call Saul's" Twitter post is simply captioned: "The new Season 2 poster hints at an uphill battle for Jimmy, but at least Mike has his back!"
The phrase is used quite literally because Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) stands in one corner of the road and walks in a different direction. Could this perhaps indicate a rift in Mike and Jimmy's relationship in season 2?

A recent article on AV Club argues that the poster is a metaphor or it could even mean that the two are in the city of Albuquerque. Fans of "Breaking Bad" spin off show would remember that almost all of the action in "Better Call Saul's" predecessor show took place in Albuquerque.
If Jimmy and Mike are indeed in the New Mexico region, it would provide the plot with characters from "Breaking Bad." After all, this has been a plot development fans have been waiting to see. In an interview with Cinema Blend, show runner Vince Gilligan said that one of the early characters from season 1 of "Breaking Bad" will be introduced in the latest season of "Better Call Saul."
The website predicted that the show runner could in fact rope in Domingo "Krazy-8" Molina, the methamphetamine distributor and a DEA informant. He is the first person Walter White (Bran Cranston) holds hostage and he is the chemistry teacher's first victim.
If Jimmy does acquaint himself with Krazy-8 in season 2, it signals the beginning of his transition from Jimmy to Saul. After all, he has nothing going for him when he identifies himself as Jimmy, as the season 2 trailer rightly indicates.
"Better Call Saul" season 2 premieres on 15 February, 2016 on AMC.
