Fraser will enter the fray in the second episode of the new season, entitled “Madrigal“.
Per EW.com, Fraser will play an “important” character called Lydia who is a former associate of the departed Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito). She’s described as a vital cog in the developments of season 5, as well as someone who is “nervous about her place in the world.”
With Walter having defeated Gus, I think everyone in his vacinity is nervous about their place in the world — Saul and Mike included. It sounds like Walt will make her an offer she dare not refuse? Or will she end up being a threat to Walt’s empire?
Fraser isn’t the only new character to hold court with Walt; Friday Night Lights‘ Jesse Plemons has been cast as Todd, a “working class” guy who’s not quite what he seems.
