How much do you love Breaking Bad ? If you’re anything like us, then you’re a huge fan of the show and its cast of characters, most notably the relationship between Walter White and his brother-in-law, Hank Schrader. Breaking Bad Star to Play Alma’s Ex-Husband in New Netflix Series
Table of Contents
The two were married for 30 years
During their time together, Jorge Poza (The Art of More) starred as Judge Leonardo Solares, a highly respected former judge and Alma’s ex-husband. Though they separated when Alma moved to Mexico with Esteban, they have remained close friends throughout their separation and shared custody of their daughter Zoe. Jorge has also guest starred on Blue Bloods, The Good Wife and Manhattan.
The two were separated when she was fired from her position at the law firm they had established together
Poza accused his ex-wife of falsifying documents, following which she left their marriage and cut all ties with him. He was later imprisoned for fraud by one of his former clients whom he had convinced to invest his money into a nonexistent business project.
She started working in a law firm with Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito)
After becoming close with Gus and his henchman Victor (Jeremiah Bitsui), Esteban was eventually made a partner at Madrigal Electromotive. Although he didn’t know about all of Gus’ dealings, Esteban was very loyal to him and helped him launder money from Mexico into Walt’s bank account.
She works on several cases while fighting breast cancer
First, it was revealed that she and Mike (Jonathan Banks) will work on a case together. After running into something of a brick wall with their research on a woman whose daughter was killed by an Uber driver, they decide to revisit their old client Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), who may have some information about someone high up at Los Pollos Hermanos — i.e., somebody Gus Fring would have dealt with only through intermediaries.
She seeks assistance from an unlikely ally – Nacho Varga (Michael Mando)
Nacho is a key player for Gus. He was tasked with killing Tuco Salamanca, but he and Mike ended up saving him from Jesse Pinkman. In exchange for his loyalty, Gus gave Nacho a job at Los Pollos Hermanos, which has helped him build up quite an empire of his own. While Nacho may not have been seen much on Breaking Bad, that will change very soon.
Her past catches up with her before she can leave witness protection
A man claiming to be her ex-husband from years earlier, now a judge with a powerful client, seeks her out and threatens her life and that of her family if she doesn’t get him off. Now on trial for murder and under threat of being sent back into protection for good, Alma must fight through a broken legal system as it is controlled by drug cartels. Her only hope is to reveal what really happened all those years ago.
