“Better Call Saul” returns to the small screen in about a month’s time, and US network AMC has just released what could be a very telling piece of key art. There are a lot of possibilities about why Jimmy McGill painted himself with stripes, but one theory is arguably stronger than the rest.

The new art, which is shown above, seems to indicate Bob Odenkirk’s Jimmy is getting ready to put on some prison wear for “Better Call Saul” season 3. This is in line with footage that was previously released, in which Jimmy looked like he was getting ready for a mug shot.

There have been no official statements released regarding the details of the plot, but Screen Rant has pointed out one likely situation. In the previous season of the show, audiences watched as Chuck (Michael McKean) secretly recorded Jimmy admitting to a felony. There are a handful of possible outcomes, but it does not seem likely that Chuck will forgive and forget how Jimmy tricked him into making a fool out of himself in front of a judge.

But because Jimmy is still Jimmy and has not fully transformed into Saul Goodman, the publication argued that it is possible that he will face time for his admission. However, going to jail for a felony begs to ask what will happen to his law career. Another point of discussion is whether or not Kim (Rhea Seehorn) will stay loyal to Jimmy.

On the other hand, the stripes that Odenkirk’s character is wearing on the art are not exactly prison stripes. It could be that the situation is finally is what brings Saul out. Afterall, the actor did tell The Hollywood Reporter that “Better Call Saul” season 3 will provide audiences their first glimpse of the criminal lawyer that was first introduced in “Breaking Bad.”

This is arguably the most exciting part of the upcoming season. As the spinoff prequel to the well beloved “Breaking Bad,” Jimmy’s transformation into Saul in “Better Call Saul” is pivotal for fans of the franchise. At this point, however, the trigger has not yet been confirmed.

“Better Call Saul” officially returns to the small screen on April 10 via AMC. Australian audiences can stream the episodes within the same day on Stan.
