Better Call Saul Stars' Reactions to a Convincing Ending Theory Are Very Interesting

Bob Odenkirk and Rhea Seehorn’s reactions to a happy fan theory about the end of Better Call Saul are exciting. The popular Breaking Bad spinoff on AMC still has three episodes left. But one of the most important plots of the show seems to be over now that Jimmy McGill’s wife and partner in crime, Kim Wexler, seems to have left.

When Better Call Saul premiered in 2015, Wexler, played by Seehorn, was a relatively minor character. But as time passed, Kim became more critical, and as the episodes continued, she showed more layers of her personality. Show fans started to worry more about what would happen to Kim than Jimmy (who they knew would live to become Saul Goodman on Breaking Bad). However, Kim’s story seemed to end in the ninth episode of season 6 of Better Call Saul, when she quit her job at the bar, packed up her things, and left Jimmy and her whole life behind.

Three episodes of season 6 remain, so it’s unclear if Kim is genuinely gone or will return. There are fan theories that Kim and Jimmy end up happy despite all the darkness in season 6. In a recent Vanity Fair video, Jimmy actor Odenkirk and Kim actor Seehorn addressed a fan theory. According to Seehorn, Kim Wexler will be reunited with Jimmy in the series finale. The scenario was “interesting” to Seehorn. Odenkirk added:

Better Call Saul is about character development. The series has been about Jimmy McGill becoming Saul Goodman (and thence into Gene Takovic). Jimmy becomes more immersed in Saul Goodman’s fiction, becoming the beloved Breaking Bad character. Kim went from seemingly straight-laced lawyer to occasional con artist to grifter. Kim’s and Jimmy’s schemes became too much to bear, and she quit her life.

Jimmy and Kim’s reunion in Better Call Saul’s finale would be a feel-good ending. Perhaps that reunion could happen in Gene Takovic’s unresolved timeline after season 6, episode 10. Kim’s break with Jimmy (and her life) in episode 9 is a fitting place to leave the character, so she shouldn’t return to Better Call Saul. A second chance and opening the door to this possibility. Maybe Kim and Jimmy’s reunion is wishful thinking. Maybe things will turn out well for Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould planned for Better Call Saul.
