SPOILER WARNING!

Season 6 proved to be a fitting final season for “Better Call Saul,” and just like previous seasons, it provided revelatory moments, tragedy, and shocking surprises. With these and other twists from throughout the season in mind, Chuck McGill actor Michael McKean discusses how one particular Season 6 scene took him completely by surprise.
McKean shared his thoughts with Variety about Howard Hamlin's staggering and abrupt death in Season 6, Episode 7. He said, “First of all, Patrick Fabian is a great friggin' actor. And it was like his character came so much into focus, and then of course, it's blown off the face of the earth. It was just devastating."
McKean added, “When he became a victim it was devastating, but it was also like, life is that. Life is the guy who walks in at the wrong moment, you know?" Viewers likewise shocked by Howard's death are not alone, and they are in fact in good company alongside some of the stars of "Better Call Saul.”
