'Better Call Saul' Season 5 Finale: Will Kim go to prison in Season 6? Fans think she will 'break bad' or die
Last week Kim had fans convinced she should be the boss lady running the cartels. However, as the finale closed, fans are worried her menacing turnover might lead to something worse
Spoilers for Season 5 finale Episode 10 'Something Unforgivable'
On the giant Season 5 finale of 'Better Call Saul', a total of 90 minutes gives us insights into what's next for Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) and his wife, Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn), as she proves she has bigger balls than anyone else on the show. Well, bigger than most of them except Lalo Salamanca, maybe.
But that's the thing — Kim finally found her match by standing her ground when she told off Lalo in the previous episode of this season.
And now with her going full hand in hand with Saul Goodman's agenda — think payback and grand con schemes — fans are convinced the reason we don't see her next to Saul in 'Breaking Bad' is because Kim goes to prison as the series comes to an end in Season 6.
Kicking off right where we last saw them, Jimmy suggests a change of accommodation purely for security purposes as he and Kim spend the night at a fancy hotel, with fancy separate beds, and the two of them are back to enjoying their separate toothbrush time.
From asserting how Jimmy "won't do it again" — meaning the desert misadventure — to asserting she is every bit the person Jimmy could ask for to be by his side as he becomes Saul Goodman not only to the rest of the world but to himself — Kim comes a long way on tonight's episode.
The recent confrontations in prison and dressing Lalo down at their own home might have given her the blazing courage she needed.
And even though she is going to continue to do her bit of good from her career, with finger guns and subtle smirks — a glint in those eyes — Kim has pretty much earned a spot in the leagues of Gus, Lalo and Mike.
Last week Kim had fans convinced she should be the boss lady running the cartels, but as the finale closed and she made it out alive and still in a relationship with Jimmy — quashing two of our biggest fears — fans are now claiming this 'Breaking Bad' of Kim's character is worse than either of those two arcs.
And it's highly likely that after Lalo's shootout, with him escaping effortlessly and possibly being on the prowl for those who took him down — even if Kim doesn't die, there's a high chance she's landing in prison. If not for Lalo, surely for cleaning up Jimmy's mess behind him.
Taking it to Twitter a fan simply wrote: "I'm finally ready to guess what happens to Kim. Kim goes to prison." Another raised the alarm: "I'm more worried about the fate of Kim Wexler than I am about coronavirus."
But for those who aren't exactly worried about her fate, fear arrives from a different aspect. "I was worried that Kim was going to die or break up with Jimmy, but what happened was much worse. She broke bad," tweeted a fan.
Another reflected: "I was worried that Kim was going to die. Now I have to worry that she's going to break bad?!" Fans notice everything — from a slightly looser ponytail to how they don't brush together anymore, and according to a particular fan, Kim will grow tired of clearing up after Jimmy.
In fact, explaining the character's sudden turnover, the fan cited how Kim is already sick of cleaning Jimmy's mess. "As we’ve seen throughout the entire series. Kim is always picking up Jimmy's messes. The trash can. The beer bottles. Defending him in court. Maybe she realized this was too big to fix....so she became a part of it."
Makes, sense right? Add to it a dash of Lalo's vengeance, and voila: answers! 'Better Call Saul' Season 5 wrapped up on Monday, April 20, at 9 pm on AMC.
