Breaking Bad / Better Call Saul Actor Mark Margolis Dies @ 83

Mark Margolis, Actor on ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Better Call Saul,’ Dies at 83

As the headline shows, Mark Margolis was best-known for work late in his career when he starred on the television series Breaking Bad and its spin-off Better Call Saul, where he played aging drug lord Hector Salamanca.

I personally can’t really stand to watch scripted television or streaming series, but I am proud to have made an exception for these two, as they’re really the only ones I’ve seen every episode of to the very end. If you’re looking for something to binge and still haven’t seen either show, these are probably the only ones I’d recommend. Better Call Saul may even be the better of the two.

Face Off

Hector Salamanca was killed in the finale of Season 4 in an episode called Face Off. Archvillain Gus Fring goes to Hector’s retirement home in order to do the deed himself, when unexpectedly, Hector sets off a bomb strapped to his wheelchair, killing both characters off.

In the aftermath of the explosion, Gus Fring steps out of the blown-out doorway. In one of the most iconic scenes of the show, he casually adjusts his tie in a close-up before succumbing to his mortal wounds. Click the photo to enlarge it or watch the scene yourself.
