Or—Urgh!—an eventual remake/reboot.

I love how Dalton just swept in with Lalo and became such a natural element of the show in just a few episodes - but he mainly works because he's such a good foil for the rest of the characters. A spinoff of his own would not have that value.

My immediate response to this was to think that someone could have said the same about Saul Goodman based on his Breaking Bad appearances.  Then that made me think about how much Lalo is like Saul Goodman.  Flashy, glib, a glad-hander....which is a comparison that hadn't occurred to me before.

I thought of the comparison as well - but the question of "How did a regular guy become Saul Goodman?" sounds more compelling than "How did Lalo become a heavy-hitter of the Salamanca family?"

And yeah, that's one thing I liked - Lalo actually LIKED Saul! He saw him as a kindred spirit, in a way.

I'll be curious to know if Lalo will still have that feeling in Season 6. He knows that he's been betrayed, but he may not even bother messing with Saul over it - because the root problem was higher up the chain.

Technically a foreign adaptation instead of a remake, though!

That would be cool, wouldn't it?
