Alright folks, it's time to watch Better Call Saul season 6 episode 9 online — which means we're hitting play on the fifth to last episode of the series. After the events of last week's breakneck-fast return of one of the best shows on TV (and one of our picks for the TV to watch in July), we need to see Jimmy and Kim in the same room — and alone.

Last week saw the end of the line for Lalo Salamanca, as Gus Fring managed to get the better of him by taking out the lights in their confrontation. But before that could happen, Lalo gave Jimmy a murderous mission that he deferred to Kim: go to a building and shoot one of Fring's men. 

Jimmy, then said Kim should be the person to deliver the hit. Those following at home were mightily shocked by this option. Was Jimmy being a coward? Did he think Lalo would kill whomever stayed back? We assume Jimmy and Kim will talk about this at least for a little bit this week.

Better Call Saul is also gaining three guest stars this half-season, who we haven't seen yet. 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."

Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch Better Call Saul season 6 episode 9, and check out this video where Giancarlo Esposito talks about the big confrontation between Lalo and Mr. Fring.
