Did Hank find Lalo and Howard’s corpses in Breaking Bad?
There is one scene in particular from the original drama that fans are now linking with the two shocking deaths recently seen in season six of Better Call Saul.
In the series six mid-season finale, Lalo Salamanca (played by Tony Dalton) stormed into Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) and Kim Wexler’s (Rhea Seehorn) flat, demanding they help him with his plan to assassinate Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito).
Unfortunately, this was very bad timing for Howard Hamlin (Patrick Fabian) who joined them shortly after as Lalo pointed a gun at the couple.
Not willing to leave behind any witnesses, Lalo shot Howard in the head, killing him instantly, much to Jimmy’s shock.
But it wasn’t a happy ending for Lalo either as he met his bloody end at the hand of his rival.
Lalo and Gus were shooting at one another in the latter’s superlab when he turned the lights off.
They both started shooting randomly, desperately hoping not to get shot themselves but when the lights came back on, it was shown Lalo had been shot in the neck.
Better Call Saul’s eighth episode ended with Mike (Jonathan Banks) burying both Lalo and Howard’s bodies in a shared grave in Gus’ bunker meth lab.
Looking back at a specific moment in Breaking Bad, fans believe it was Hank Schrader (Dean Norris) and his team who discovered their grave.
Better Call Saul: Hank Schrader discovered the superlab in season five, episode 1.
He asks his colleague about the identity of the two bodies that were discovered.
They respond: “No, not much left. Apparently, the teeth do this popcorn thing when they get too hot, so they tell me.
“Whoever torched it, did it up right.”
