El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie – it also showed rain once, which meant something like, escaping fate and leaving the old life behind, when the leading character Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) secures his parents by leaving the life of crime.

At that time, the exact meaning of that rain was rebirth and freedom. Rain was meant to wash away sins of the past life and step into a new life as a different person.

One can even say that Nacho has been the “Jesse” of Better Call Saul i.e. good-hearted criminal who somehow gets into a bigger and more dangerous crime world, and keeps trying to get out of it. 

While Jesse somehow tried and escaped his fate, Nacho couldn’t. Although Nacho got to live the life he wanted to, on his terms, and also he saved his father.
