As we approach the endgame of Better Call Saul, there’s no knowing what surprises are stored right around the corner. What we do know is that the cameos are becoming increasingly exciting.

Created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, the prequel and spin-off series to the universally adored Breaking Bad is nothing short of a total triumph. Leaning heavily into the legal drama sub-genre while still, like its predecessor, operating as a compelling crime thriller, it branches off from what came before while still respecting the franchise wholeheartedly.

Nevertheless, all good things must come to an end.

It was announced ahead of the premiere that this will be the sixth and final season of the series, bringing Jimmy’s arc to a close.

Before we wrap up, on the other hand, Bob Odenkirk is joined by some familiar faces that are newcomers to the series. Season 6 episode 10 offers a highlight we simply have to acknowledge, so who is Marion in Better Call Saul?

Who is Marion in Better Call Saul?

Marion is a stranger that Gene (Jimmy’s alias) happens to encounter in the street… with a twist.

The instalment begins with Marion on the way home from the supermarket but is unable to mount the curb in the icy weather. Here, she meets Gene, who is posting lost dog signs for his pet Nippy, which is where the name of the episode comes from.

Gene helps push her mobility chair and sneakily deactivates the machine so that when he goes to walk away she needs his help again. We cut to him pushing her forward and he’s invited into her home to share some drinks as they get on merrily.

However, the past presents itself to Gene when he meets her son Jeff. He knows Gene as Saul Goodman and we realise that he is the cab driver who recognised Saul from the legal adverts when he lived in Albuquerque. He questioned him earlier in the season and there was also a confrontation in the mall in season 5.

You may not recognise him as Jeff because actor Don Harvey has been recast with Pat Healy.

Carol Burnett joins Better Call Saul

Marion is played by none other than the legendary Carol Burnett.

The 89-year-old actress and comedian is arguably best known for the iconic variety show The Carol Burnett Show but will be known to audiences for a wealth of other reasons.

She has previously appeared on such shows as Mad About You (she played Theresa Stemple), Hawaii Five-0 (Deb McGarrett), Glee (Doris Sylvester), and more.

On the other hand, beyond her comedy, she’s perhaps familiar to majority audiences for her performance as Miss Hannigan in the classic 1982 film Annie.
