Better Call Saul: 8 Breaking Bad Characters Who Never Appeared In The Show

Better Call Saul has finally come to an end, and it was a wild ride that both tied into the events of Breaking Bad and broke down the aftermath of Heisenberg, too. The spin-off prequel series couldn’t have done that without some amazing cameos from original Breaking Bad characters, whether it was Hank, Steve Gomez, or even Marie unexpectedly appearing in the finale.

However, there were also some glaring omissions. Whether it’s Patrick Kuby, any other member of the White family, or the best hitmen west of the Mississippi, these characters could have featured in some capacity. And while not all of them had any reason to appear, it would have been nice to see them one last time before the franchise seemingly ended for good.

Patrick Kuby

Patrick Kuby (Bill Burr) was one of the best recurring characters on Breaking Bad, as he always remained professional despite not always being the best guy for the job. Being one half of Saul’s “A-team,” it was always expected that Kuby would show up at some point, especially as Huell – the other half of the A-team – has appeared frequently throughout the prequel series.

However, it was actually planned for Kuby to return, with Burr set to reprise the role in season 5. Unfortunately, Burr could not film these scenes due to a death in his family, and the character was replaced by Sobchak. Unless there’s another series, Kuby will always be one of those characters whose history (and fate) will remain unknown.

Badger And Skinny Pete

Few characters have made fans laugh more than Badger or Skinny Pete, especially when they’re together arguing about Star Trek or some other TV show. Given their sketchy backgrounds and having always stayed put in Albuquerque, it’s a little surprising that none of the Better Call Saul lawyers or other characters ever crossed paths with the dynamic duo.

And strangely enough, fans wanted to see the duo interact with Marie, and while viewers saw the widow in Better Call Saul’s final episode, the two stoners were sadly absent. Though they didn’t appear in the series, they did return in 2019 in El Camino, and their scenes were a great send-off for the characters.

Skyler White And Walt Jr.

Realistically, there isn’t any logical way Skyler could have been included in the series. Even the clear bits of fan service in Better Call Saul still have a purpose and, at the very least, hint at character development. Skyler’s character arc was all wrapped up at the end of Breaking Bad, and there was nothing more to expand on.

Similarly, while it would have been fun to see Walt Jr. in the background, hanging around with his friends, there wasn’t any way for it to make sense in the show’s context. However, there is still one question fans still have after the Breaking Bad finale, which is whether Gretchen and Elliot did give Jr. the money on his 18th birthday as ordered by Walt. And that could have at least been answered in the post-Breaking Bad scene in Better Call Saul, even if it was in passing.


Bogdan was a despicable character and, ironically, though he wasn’t a meth dealer or any other kind of criminal, he was still the most hated character on the show. The character owned the A1A car wash, which is seemingly the most popular car wash in Albuquerque. If somebody has unfinished business with anyone, they can simply wait it out at the car wash, and their enemy arrives eventually.

Some fans even speculated that Saul and Walter might have unknowingly crossed paths when Saul went to get his car washed one time. If that was the case, fans could have gotten to see Bogdan one more time, too. But while that was a great theory, it’s one that ultimately proved to be false.

Todd Alquist

Though Todd wasn’t introduced in Breaking Bad until season 5, he was still certainly committing crimes up to that point. And as fans saw Ira, the proprietor of Vamonos Pest in the spin-off’s season 4, a Todd cameo could have been very possible, given that he worked at the pest control company.

As Todd is the most unsettling villain in the franchise, even more than Gustavo Fring, it would have been fun to see the two share a scene in Better Call Saul, though it might have seemed forced. Though his death in the Breaking Bad finale was more than a satisfying enough end for viewers, fans still enjoyed seeing him as the psychotic enforcer in El Camino.

Jack Welker

Along with Todd, Jack Welker is another big bad of Breaking Bad season 5, and the neo-Nazi’s history and backstory are hinted at so much in the iconic series that it should have been detailed at least a little in Better Call Saul. The character has an entire compound full of hidden areas, and there must be other things in the compound beside the Quonset hut meth lab, the clubhouse, and Jesse’s pit.

However, just like Todd, Jack had such a satisfying final scene, as he was shot dead mid-sentence just like he did to Hank. And given that his setup isn’t quite as meticulous and thought out as Gustavo’s, it might not have been quite as engaging.

Ted Beneke

While the universe is full of meth heads and two-bit criminals, Ted, a business owner, might be the dumbest person in the entire franchise. Not only did he believe that a great aunt left him the exact amount of money he had to pay the IRS, but he spent that money on a new car, and that was after already being in tax trouble in the past.

The character never learns, but there was always a chance that fans could have seen his first lesson in Better Call Saul in a courtroom. Or, as Skyler working in Beneke Fabricators was the most important thing to happen before the show’s start, their (working) relationship could have been delved into at some point, too.

Old Joe

It’s hilarious that Old Joe doesn’t have a last name in the series and that his official name is a nickname, especially given that Breaking Bad characters are so well-written and three-dimensional. And in that respect, the character is more of an enigma than anything, and he is in no way underwritten.

Old Joe knows a surprising amount about law, which was showcased when Hank tried breaking into the RV without a warrant. That makes it more surprising than anything that he didn’t appear in the procedural law show. However, once again, he did get one last scene in El Camino, which was satisfying enough, even if it didn’t explain how he came to have such a vast knowledge of criminal law.
