Hold the line for the next Better Call Saul episode, as AMC is keeping us hanging on for the season 6 episode 8 release date. And after last week's episode, we both despise them for this, and understand completely. Because after the look on Kim Wexler's face in the final moments, she's finally having a taste of the hell that Jimmy McGill has seen this season.

A warning to those who haven't seen Better Call Saul season 6 episode 7 yet: Major spoilers to follow.

Better Call Saul season 6 episode 8 start time, channel

Better Call Saul season 6 episode 8 release date: 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)

We've heard all the opinions on whether or not the plot to ruin Howard Hamlin's life made sense or was justified, but between Jimmy and Kim's childhoods and how much of a rush they get out of a con, it made sense to us. 

But the moment it was all building to — Lalo Salamanca shooting Howard in cold blood? It all kinda made sense, in a sick and twisted way. Now, Kim actually has someone else's blood on her hands, as her connection to Jimmy brought her too close to the cartel business.

Meanwhile, Lalo's been a busy bad guy, spying on Gus' laundry business and seeing Mike come out of it with the gang. But because everyone knows he's gotten too close to Gus' new project, Mike rearranged the security team to keep Gus alive. And that is what brought Lalo to the Goodman/Wexler abode, either en route to kill Gus or having changed his mind and needing more help.

Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch Better Call Saul season 6 episode 8. Just note that episode availability is going to depend on where you are in the world, and what services are available to you. And now, for a brief moment for the memory of Howard Hamlin:

How to watch Better Call Saul season 6 episode 8 in the UK

Our friends across the Atlantic don’t get to watch Better Call Saul season 6 live with the rest of us, and have to wait a day due to Netflix having international rights, as with the previous five seasons — new episodes will debut weekly on Netflix, the day after they premiere on AMC.

Better Call Saul season 6 cast

Better Call Saul season 6's back half will feature some, but not all of the same returning cast as previous seasons. Bob Odenkirk leads as Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman, while Rhea Seehorn plays Jimmy's long-time partner and now wife Kim Wexler — whose fate is one of the biggest questions of the series. Tony Dalton plays Lalo Salamanca, the de-facto leader of the Salamanca criminal family.

Jonathan Banks and Giancarlo Espositio reprise their Breaking Bad roles as Mike Ehrmantraut and Gus Fring. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are due to return as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman - though the true extent of their roles are unknown.

Michael Mando played cartel lieutenant Nacho Vega, and he killed himself after claiming it was he who killed Lalo for the Alvarez family. Patrick Fabian is now likely out, as Howard Hamlin has been shot dead, but a return is possible with flashbacks.

Henry is a senior editor at Tom’s Guide covering streaming media, laptops and all things Apple, reviewing devices and services for the past seven years. Prior to joining Tom's Guide, he reviewed software and hardware for TechRadar Pro, and interviewed artists for Patek Philippe International Magazine. He's also covered the wild world of professional wrestling for Cageside Seats, interviewing athletes and other industry veterans.
