'Better Call Saul' Season 6 Episode 12: Did Kim turn herself in? Former lawyer spills out truth about HOWARD's death
Kim Wexler is now living in Florida and she is leading a new life, but she does something that's gonna put everything in jeopardy
Ever since Kim Wexler took the decision of getting away from Saul Goodman, everyone has been thinking if she’ll ever show up on ‘Better Call Saul’. Last week, we did get to see Saul and Francesca talking about the phone call she received from Kim (Rhea Seehorn). At the time, Saul did call Kim where she’s working right now, but the call didn’t go as we would have wanted to. However, the makers decided to give viewers what they wanted and focus the penultimate episode of ‘Better Call Saul’ Season 6 on Kim Wexler.
Kim has changed and when I say changed, you better believe it. She has gone brunette and has a new potential lover. Her life has turned upside down and after quitting law practice, she is now working with a company named Palm Coast Sprinklers. Kim manages the website and writes the intros for their products. So, now you can see how her new life is. But the most devastating moments arrived when we finally got to see what happened during the last week’s phone call between Saul (Bob Odenkirk) and Kim and what happened afterward. During the call, Kim told Saul to “turn himself in” which triggered Saul and he told Kim that she shouldn’t be telling him what to do when she was part of the plan as well.
He told her to turn herself in as well. The devastating phone call ended with Kim saying, “I’m glad you (Saul) are still alive”.
A few moments later we see Kim returning to Albuquerque and going to the same court that she used to work at. However, it is revealed that Kim is here to see Howard Hamlin’s wife Cheryl and talk to her. Shockingly, Kim has told the TRUTH to Cheryl. Yes, Kim told her everything that she and Saul did to Howard or to anyone else. In the affidavit, she said that they planted heroine at the club to let everyone know that he was an addict. The affidavit also stated that Lalo shot dead Howard in their living room and showed it as a suicide. When Cheryl asked why he was shot, Kim said that Howard was at the wrong place at the wrong time.
She gave the same affidavit to the court as well and now, it’s up to the court if they want to prosecute her. In reality, they can’t because there is no physical evidence. Kim leaves from there and cries uncontrollably. Nevertheless, the era of Kim and Saul is finally as they have finally signed the divorce papers and Kim now lives in Florida.
It feels like a satisfying end for Kim and Saul because whatever they were doing together, could have taken them to a brutal end. Thank god, they didn’t end up inside the ground like Lalo and Howard.
