Michael Mando Explains The Plot Twist In Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 3


THIS STORY CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR "Better Call Saul" Season 6 Episode 3


Nacho Varga (Michael Mando) dies in "Rock and Hard Place," the third episode of the final season of “Better Call Saul.” Nacho's final moments are brutal, but based on what actor Michael Mando is saying about his last episode, he does not view it as a death worth crying over.
In a recent interview, Michael Mando said he felt Nacho's death served as both the character's highest and lowest moment."It was a celebration of life, it was Nacho telling himself and the world not to cry for him. This was something he believed in and he was doing it with all his heart."
Mando noted that Nacho being surrounded by all the characters that meet violent ends in “Breaking Bad” gave his death scene an ominous feeling. Mando also said it helps establish Nacho's death as an act of sacrifice, bravery, and love for his father, not an act of revenge against the Salamancas or Gus.
