Lalo Salamanca's return to Jimmy and Kim's home in Better Call Saul is a shocking twist, but the reason for Lalo's actions creeps across the scene just moments earlier.

Lalo makes sure that Better Call Saul's mid-season finale ends with a bang, as he arrives unannounced and kills Howard Hamlin, who is just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The nail-biting scene mirrors a terrifying moment in season 5 when Lalo waltzes into Jimmy's home demanding to hear his version of what happened in the desert.

Lalo is embroiled in a game of cat and mouse with Gus Fring in Better Call Saul season 6, and Fring and his superlab remain Lalo's main target

This revelation could cause friction in Jimmy and Kim's relationship, as she was informed by Mike that Lalo is very much alive.

Jimmy and Kim may no longer seem like born survivors now that they're at the mercy of Lalo. However, they're not Lalo's main targets.

Lalo could plan to use Jimmy and Kim to his advantage. After all, Jimmy is "Salamanca's guy" in Better Call Saul now.

Lalo will suspect that Jimmy has ties to Gus or Mike, and he could therefore try to use him as leverage. But such a plan seems too simple for a mind as dastardly as Lalo.
