Better Call Saul Season 6 only has three episodes left before it officially concludes. As fans seem to be left hanging over Kim (Rhea Seehorn) and Jimmy’s (Bob Odenkirk) storyline, the two lead stars react to a fan theory suggesting they will be reunited.
Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 9, Fun and Games, seems to wrap up Jimmy and Kim’s story when the latter left her husband and resigned from the bar. However, it looks like fans aren’t satisfied with this ending for the two and want them to be together again when the series ends.
Better Call Saul Season 6’s Kim, Jimmy’s Relationship Theory
According to Screen Rant, a fan theory suggests that Kim and Kimmy will get the “happy ending” they deserve despite everything they have been through in the sixth and final season.
So, what can the lead actors say about this?
In a recent video segment for Vanity Fair, Odenkirk and Seehorn addressed the claim and gave what seemed to be a puzzling response.
Seehorn read the theory as,
“Kim Wexler survives this series, and we will see her awkwardly reunited with Jimmy during the series finale. Both of them transformed and unsure of where to go from there.”
The 50-year-old star had a rather unsure reaction to it, simply saying, “Interesting.”
Odenkirk, alternatively, had a lengthy explanation.
“Because it suggests that the depth of character is there of, like, maybe they have, I guess, places inside internally to go still. They're not just cornered by their personality type. … Most TV shows wouldn't go that deep, I think. They really need their characters to behave in the same way over and over. I think we're on a show where they could. Grow and evolve in surprising ways.”
So, does this hint at the possibility that fans will not see Kim and Jimmy in Better Call Saul Season 6 again?
Rhea Seehorn on Kim’s Possible Return in Better Call Saul Season 6's Remaining Episodes
Seehorn talked about her character’s possible return in the remaining episodes of Better Call Saul Season 6.
Though she didn’t exactly reveal if fans would see her again or not, she said her departure from Jimmy’s life in Episode 9 felt “very much like an ending in its own right.”
She told Entertainment Weekly,
"I can't say if we see her again. And even the fans that were savvy enough to figure out when I was in Albuquerque and when I was not — we shot a lot of stuff out of sequence, whether it was locations or weather or COVID[-19] or whatever. So there was no telling when somebody wrapped, or what that meant in the story sequentially. So I'm not going to speak to whether or not we will see her again and in what capacity. I will say that it's devastating the decision she makes and the end of the relationship — the Jim and Kimmy that we knew — and her practicing law is its own ending, no matter what. It's painful. And it was a terrible punch to the gut when I had to play it. [Laughs]"
With three episodes left before Better Call Saul Season 6 officially bid its goodbye, it remains to be seen if fans will see Kim in the series again.
