    This article contains spoilers for Better Call Saul Season 6.

    Fans of Breaking Bad have been waiting for Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) to appear in the final season of Better Call Saul, but with only a handful of episodes remaining, when will the duo reprise their roles?

    Although it has yet to be officially confirmed, the IMDb pages for both Cranston and Paul state that they will appear in the July 25 episode, titled "Nippy."

    The episode is the tenth in Better Call Saul's final season and its description reads, "A new player gets in the game." Could this new player be Walter White?

    As viewers saw in the July 18 episode, "Fun and Games," Better Call Saul jumps forward in time after Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) decides to stop being a lawyer and leaves Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk). The final scenes of the episode reveal that Jimmy has made his full transition into Saul Goodman — complete with his lavish house, wild clothes, and commitment to his criminal clients. Saul's office even looks as it did during Breaking Bad's timeline, down to the Greco-Roman columns behind his desk.

    One eagle-eyed fan commented on a YouTube video of the teaser for next week, writing, "Looks like Walt and Jesse will appear next episode. At the end of this episode Saul gets a call about a case of public masturbation. In the episode where Walt and Saul first talked, Saul mistakes Walt's appointment for Badger about being a case of public masturbation."

    Other fans also noticed details that set the current Better Call Saul timeline alongside those of early seasons of Breaking Bad.

    All things considered, it seems likely that Walt and Jesse will be showing up in next week's episode. Yeah, b*tch!

    Better Call Saul airs Mondays at 9:00 PM ET on AMC. Seasons 1-5 are currently streaming on Netflix.
