'Better Call Saul' Season 5 Episode 7: Jimmy and Kim get married but fans are torn over 'saddest wedding ever'
After getting a Jimmy and Kim courtroom scene in the promo trailer for the episode, fans are left torn and gushing over the imperfectly perfect union
Spoilers for Season 5 Episode 7: 'JMM'
The teaser for the latest episode of 'Better Call Saul' showed Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) and Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) in the courtroom, which led to multiple speculations among fans of the show.
Our safe bets were on Kim and Jimmy joining forces once again, either to front Kevin a second time or to brave whatever Lalo Salamanca is about to shove their way. But there was a faint, teeny tiny bit of hope in everybody's hearts that maybe the couple ends up getting married in a courthouse. And for those of you who guessed so, you are a hundred percent right. Yep, this just in — Jimmy and Kim are officially Mr and Mrs now and while we continue to debate over whether the last name changes were made to McGill or Goodman, the rest of the fandom has come in unison to announce just how sad this wedding was. Very Jimmy and Kim, but sad nevertheless.
The official synopsis had teased that Jimmy and Kim would reach out to his old bodyguard Huelle, whom we saw in 'Breaking Bad' for some new development, and while most of us speculated it would be a new case, turns out Huelle was called in to serve as a witness at their courthouse wedding. Kim propositioned to Jimmy that no matter what happens, both of them can't be asked to testify for the same thing because of spousal privilege and so they decided to take their love for the courtroom to a whole other level by marching in hand in hand as if soldiers in a battle.
For some fans, it was the most Jimmy and Kim thing — to have a simple, minimalistic, straight to the point courthouse wedding. "The wedding was very Jimmy and Kim ugh I love them," shared a fan on Twitter. "I was actually going 'aww' at the McGill-Wexler wedding. Is that okay?" asked another, while a third one certified it the "MOST ROMANTIC WEDDING EVER! Well done, Better Call Saul."
Noting the simplicity and no-flashy factor of it all, a fan even remarked: "Perfect #norice #noglitter #nobubbles #nolitter and we have ourselves a wedding."
For other fans, however, the entire process was a little too much to handle. "This is the saddest wedding I've ever seen," a fan lamented on Twitter. Other users also chimed in with remarks such as "This is the weirdest wedding" and "That was the most awkward and joyless wedding I’ve ever seen." Noting Huelle's reaction to the task he was summoned for, a fan wrote: "Huell is so disappointed by why this wedding is happening. Same brah."
Among many tweets calling the wedding "more somber than forced soap opera weddings" and others labeling the "Jimmy and Kim wedding > Jim and Pam wedding from The Office," it is, however, one reaction that stands out the most. A fan tweeted: "I know this #BetterCallSaul ep was filmed months ago; still, amazing how this wedding captures the sterile, social-distancing time we’re in!" How cool is that!?'
'Better Call Saul' Season 5 airs on Mondays at 9 pm only on AMC.
