Better Call Saul’s Rhea Seehorn Comments on Kim Wexler’s Future

Warning: There are SPOILERS in this story for Better Call Saul leading up to episode 609, “Fun and Games.”With just a handful of episodes left to go until the end, Better Call Saul has been wrapping up the story arcs for many of its main characters. Notably, those who do not appear in Breaking Bad especially needed to have their stories concluded, as learning the fates of these characters has kept fans hooked from one riveting episode to the next. Perhaps what becomes of Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) has been most of all what fans have been most anxious to find out.

In episode 609, “Fun and Games,” we finally learned why Kim was absent in the Breaking Bad timeline. Because of her part in inadvertently getting Howard (Patrick Fabian) murdered by Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton), along with the subsequent cover-up, Kim no longer felt like she was worthy to be an officer of the court. After submitting her resignation to the New Mexico Bar, Kim breaks up with Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), arguing that the two are “poison” when they’re together.

From there, the show jumped forward in time a bit, showing how Jimmy has since fully embraced his Saul Goodman persona as we proceed closer to the start of the events of Breaking Bad. But for many Better Call Saul fans, Kim’s exit feels a bit sudden. There is both hope and speculation from fans that she will appear again in some way before the show’s series finale.

Will Kim Wexler Return in the Final Episodes of Better Call Saul?

Rhea Seehorn addressed Kim Wexler’s future in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly. Seehorn could obviously not divulge any specific information, so as not to reveal spoilers about the upcoming final episodes. This means she could not say definitively that Kim will be seen again while also noting that the breaking up scene the character had with Bob Odenkirk’s Jimmy still should be considered an ending of a story in its own right, as it was the end of the Jimmy/Kim partnership that was the driving force of the show.

“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]”
