Which burning mysteries are set to be solved in the third season?

AMC

The metamorphosis and moral decline of Jimmy McGill, from budding young lawyer with a heart of gold and a few tricks up his sleeve into the ambulance chasing criminal lawyer we know and love, continues into its third year.

With the conclusion of the second season leaving Jimmy apparently caught dead to rights by his older brother Chuck, and Mike foiled in his attempted assassination of Hector Salamanca by a cryptic warning from a certain chicken-slinging kingpin, viewers are on tenterhooks in their anticipation of the deft twists, witty comic stylings, and poignant moments ahead in Season 3 of this meticulous character study.

Owing to the show's status as the prequel to Vince Gilligan's crime saga, the future that awaits Jimmy is largely known. What's less clear is just how he'll arrive there, and which further trials and tribulations will shape his destiny as Saul Goodman.

Season 3 looks to provide some answers on that front, as the world of the show is set to expand both in scope and in its connections to Breaking Bad. By promising to incorporate more and more vital pieces of its father show, Better Call Saul continues to bridge the gaps between the past, present, and future.

With the promise of even juicier stories and the long awaited introduction of an iconic character ahead, there are a lot of questions that the upcoming third season must answer. Here are eight such mysteries that fans need addressed.
