Better Call Saul Season 6: What Is Kim Wexler’s Fate?
In the fifth season of Better Call Saul, we saw Jimmy marrying Kim while he transformed into Saul Good Man. However, Kim also embraced her dark side in the season when the couple devised a sinister plan to take down Howard Hamlin. Jimmy also gets entangled in the world of drug cartels with Nacho and Lalo. Meanwhile, Nacho tries to kill Lalo, but the latter kill all the assassins.
So now, Better Call Saul Season 6 will likely pick up after Lalo’s failed assassination. He’ll probably come for Nacho after finding his part in the plan to kill him. In addition, fans may find out more about the flashes of Jimmy as Gene Takovic. And it will be interesting to find out what is next for Gus Fring after the drug war.
Moreover, this time, viewers witness more of Kim Wexler, who is working on the Sandpiper case and its consequence for her. Meanwhile, fans are concerned for Kim’s future due to her absence in Breaking Bad. While talking to THR, Bob Odenkirk said, “There’s some version of life where Kim and Jimmy stay married and live a Mary Matalin and James Carville-type situation,”. He further added, “It’s probably easy to think that Kim dies, or that anyone who’s not visible passes away. But there’s still a lot of people who die on these shows.”
Better Call Saul Episode Almost ‘Killed’ Bob Odenkirk
A few months back, actor Bob Odenkirk got hospitalized after collapsing on the set of Better Call Saul Season 6. However, according to the actor, this wasn’t the only time he found himself in a dangerous situation, working on Better Call Saul.
In March 2020, Variety interviewed Bob Odenkirk after season 5’s production finished.
