Better Call Saul is gearing up for a sixth and final season, wrapping up the now 11 season (and a movie) run that started with Breaking Bad. The present has numerous questions left to wrap up about its characters that do not seem in Breaking Bad, together with Lalo, Nacho, and Rhea Seehorn’s Kim Wexler (whose Emmy snub is a shame, by the best way). But one large query pertains to the flash forwards we have seen at first of every season–what occurs to Jimmy?
Peter Gould, the present’s government producer, has talked to Entertainment Weekly concerning the last season, and what is going to occur with Jimmy McGill (hiding out in his new id as Cinnabon supervisor Gene Takovic). The Season 5 opener instructed that Jimmy is likely to be in some bother, however Gould needs viewers to ask themselves a bigger query all through the ultimate season.
“Anybody who watches the show carefully and is thinking about where this is all going, one of the questions you have to ask yourself is: ‘What does this man deserve?,'” Gould instructed Entertainment Weekly. “What would be a deserving end to this? Does Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman/Gene Takovic deserve death? Does he deserve love? What would be the most fitting end for this guy–for the show?”
Gould needs viewers to contemplate whether or not there’s any room for Jimmy’s redemption. Throughout Better Call Saul, the character slides additional into his darkish facet, however by no means goes so far as Walter did in Breaking Bad–in a memorable Season three plotline, Jimmy briefly ruins the lifetime of an aged consumer, Irene, for certainly one of his schemes, earlier than discovering a means to assist her that dramatically blows up his potential profession in elder legislation.
Gould additionally touches on Kim, and the truth that why she is not in Breaking Bad is the present’s “other big question.” Gould solutions cryptically, saying that followers ought to “keep (their) eye on the bottle stopper”–a reference to a momento Kim has held onto from a rip-off she and Jimmy ran on an funding banker again in Season 2, which straight led to the 2 characters changing into a pair.
These will not be essentially the most direct answers–but then, we do not need the present spoiled for us.
