In the fifth season of Better Call Saul Episode number five ‘Dedicado a Max’, a plan starts to form against Mesa Verde and Trust, which may explain how the company secretly appears in Breaking Bad and reveals a connection to Walter White.
Although Mesa never appears or gets mentioned in Breaking Bad, it has been an increasingly key part of Better Call Saul since being introduced in the second season. It was then initially represented by law firm Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill (HHM), but stuck with Kim Wexler after she left the company, and again when she started working for Schweikart and Cokely.
While Mesa has been there something of a plot device for the story arcs of Kim, Jimmy, and Chuck, the bank has a more active role in Better Call Saul season 5. They are insistent on building a new call center on a lot where one home occupier is refusing to move, leading to a standoff that now features Jimmy and Kim working against Mesa together.
Based on what Kim saw in the photos in the fifth season, episode five, it is likely that she has the plot to make a case of copyright infringement against Mesa Verde. In pictures of Kevin’s office, the logo of Mesa Verde looks almost identical to one in another photograph, and the way Kim smiles after seeing it strongly suggests that Mesa Verde never sought permission to use the image.
Now, fast forward to Breaking Bad, meanwhile, and although there is no Mesa Verde, there is a Mesa Credit Union. This appears in Breaking Bad’s pilot its Walter White’s credit union, and from where he withdraws the money so Jesse can buy the RV.
Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould have shown a great deal of interest in connecting dots that previously didn’t even exist.
