In the new footage from El Camino, Joe is shown watching news coverage of the manhunt for Jesse, with the reporter confirming that authorities are looking for Pinkman and that they know of his teacher-student relationship with Walter White and that he had a "falling out" with White before continuing to manufacture meth while in captivity.
As the report continues, Joe receives a phone call, and while we don't get to hear who's on the other end, it seems rather obvious by the way he responds: "Yeah, I know who this is. At this point, who doesn't?" he says. Sounds like Jesse might be calling in favors from more than just Skinny Pete (Charles Baker) and Badger (Matt Jones).
Fans might recall that it was Old Joe's deep knowledge of motor home-related nuances in Fourth Amendment jurisprudence which bought Jesse and Walt enough time to come up with another plan to avoid their old RV-turned-travelling lab being searched. He also helped them rig enough magnets to destroy just about everything inside of the police evidence room, including a computer containing the security footage from the laundromat lab. Considering what he can do to make vehicles of all sizes disappear in a snap, it's not hard to imagine what Old Joe might be useful for in a film that's literally named after the recognizable getaway vehicle Jesse's undoubtedly going to have to ditch.
Old Joe is just the latest character to be confirmed for a return in Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad movie. Previously, Jonathan Banks revealed that he'll also be making an appearance in the film, and considering the fate of his character Mike Ehrmantraut, that will likely entail some flashbacks, making it all the more likely that Walter White aka Heisenberg himself might make it into a scene or two somehow.
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie premieres on Netflix on Friday, Oct. 11. The film will also be screened at 68 movie theaters across the country, including locations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Albuquerque. El Camino will air on AMC sometime in 2020.
