The Most Difficult Moment For Jimmy And Kim In Better Call Saul Season 5

Created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, "Better Call Saul" focuses on how Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), a well-meaning new lawyer looking to move on from his con artist past, transforms into Saul Goodman, the seedy criminal defense lawyer who aids Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). The series now approaches its sixth and final season, which is slated to premiere sometime in the first quarter of this year (via The Wrap).

Throughout the five seasons we've seen so far, Jimmy has already begun his slow evolution into becoming more like Saul — and so has Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn), a fellow lawyer and Jimmy's romantic partner. In earlier seasons, as the two become romantically involved, Kim struggles with Jimmy's tendency to con his way into winning his cases. But, as the series goes on, Kim starts to enjoy Jimmy's cons, and by the end of Season 5, she is now eager to use cons to help win cases as well. The season ends with Jimmy questioning if Kim is serious about her suggestion to derail Howard Hamlin's (Patrick Fabian) career to benefit the two of them, to which she adamantly responds that she is. 

There are definitely a lot of questions involving Jimmy and Kim going into the final season that fans can't wait to have answers to. In the meantime, looking back at what we've already seen, what do Odenkirk and Seehorn think has been the most difficult moment for Jimmy and Kim?

Odenkirk names Kim's decision to get married the hardest moment so far

In a recent interview for TV Guide, the main cast and the creators of "Better Call Saul" discussed where the show left off with each of the storylines and how the characters have evolved as we look toward the sixth and final season. During the discussion, Bob Odenkirk brought up how he thinks the mystery at the core of the show is no longer who Jimmy is, but rather, "Who is Kim Wexler?"

Odenkirk also addressed which moment he thinks is the most difficult in Season 5 between the characters, pointing to a pivotal turning point for the couple. Odenkirk said, "I think the hardest moment in the season between the characters was played by Rhea Seehorn, who suggests that maybe they should get married." In the scene, which happens in the sixth episode of the season, Kim is fed up with Jimmy for going behind her back to scheme a way into Kim winning one of her cases. Kim, beginning to tear up, suggests that maybe they need to separate. Then, surprising Jimmy (and the audience), she suggests one more option: they could get married (implying that, this way, they could benefit from spousal privilege).

Seehorn described the scene, saying that "Kim is actually not very good at emotional stuff. And when presented with emotional circumstances, she does try to force them over into a pragmatic, problem-solving situation. Clearly it's ludicrous, but it's born of an emotion that became so tight in her throat, she can't keep speaking. So, she switches." This specific scene is definitely one of the tenser moments in Season 5, and we can't wait to see where Jimmy and Kim's storyline goes in Season 6.
