Alright folks, it's time to watch Better Call Saul season 6 episode 8 online. Tonight we are seeing the beginning of the end, but there's still that question of whose end are we seeing. The series? Lalo Salamanca? Kim Wexler? Only time will tell. The last we saw the attorneys (back in May, what feels like a lifetime ago), they just witnessed bloodshed on their own doorstep.

Better Call Saul season 6 episode 8 start time, channel

Better Call Saul season 6 episode 8 release date: Today (Monday, July 11)
Time: 9 p.m. ET / PT on AMC and AMC Plus.
Watch on: Sling TV (opens in new tab) and fubo TV (opens in new tab) (AMC) and AMC Plus via Amazon Channels (opens in new tab)

Yes, Jimmy and Kim's ill-thought out plan to ruin Howard Hamlin's life ended in a way they did not expect. As the official episode description says "An unexpected visitor forces Jimmy and Kim to face the consequences of their actions." 

But to be more literal: Lalo Salamanca returned to the McGill/Wexlers and shot Howard dead. Jimmy's cartel work, something that the two had tried to keep out of their personal lives, is now front and center. So, of course, this episode is titled "Point and Shoot."

Lalo is here for revenge against Gus Fring, but he's zigged when Gus and Mike expected him to zag. Who knows if he will continue to outsmart them now that he's manipulating Jimmy and Kim, but the lack of Lalo in Breaking Bad suggests he doesn't survive. Of course, this is a reminder that we don't know if Kim lives past these next six episodes.

Better Call Saul is also gaining three guest stars this season. As previously announced, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will reprise their Breaking Bad roles of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. Carol Burnett is also joining the series, as a new guest star character named Marion. Burnett is quoted in the press release announcement as saying "I'm thrilled to be a part of my favorite show."
