Better Call SaulEnds have never been so stressful for fans. Will Jimmy and Kim survive this ordeal? Will their past return and haunt them? And most excitingly, there will be more cameos fromBreaking Bad.
Of course, we have no clear insight into what happens next. But we do have some wild fan theories, and from our saddest take to our most hopeful dreams, here are his Decider's favorite theories aboutBetter Call Saul's ending .
Jimmy is arrested.
This seems like the most likely option. As Decider's Alex Zalben pointed out, Walt is dead. Jesse ran away. That only leaves Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) to serve an actual jail term.
He has two ways of doing this. Jimmy may get arrested by the police for trying to escape. But we know he's too smart. A more narratively satisfying possibility is for Jimmy to turn himself in. Kim (Rhea Seehorn), in her final phone call to Jimmy, asked him to do the same. And after that phone call, it turns out her word got to him: When Jimmy confronted Marion (Carol her Burnett) in "Waterworks," he either took her life away from her alert, or They may have tried to intimidate you into silence. Instead, he had her call the police before her escape. Clearly, Jimmy feels guilty. But will he actually repent?
Jimmy escapes , will have to live the rest of his life in fear.
Better Call Saul Completed Did. Marion and Ask Jeeves discover that Jimmy is Saul Goodman. So it's perfectly plausible that Jimmy would use the vacuum man to start his life over one last time. Doomed to live life alone.
This fate would prove devastating for the outgoing Jimmy McGill. El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie ended with Jesse (Aaron Paul) evading the authorities, abandoning everyone he ever knew and loved, and fleeing to Alaska. It just sounds too good for another character to run for his life without legal consequences. Nor does it feel taken for granted in Jimmy's case. Jesse was really a pawn in Walt's (Bryan Cranston) breakdown and Jimmy's criminal gambling. As the episode "Breaking Bad" proved, Jimmy was never a pawn in the Heisenberg era, just another mastermind.
Of all possible fan theories, this the darkest. At this point in the series, Marion knows that she has discovered that "Gene" is actually wanted attorney Saul Goodman. "Waterworks" ends with Jimmy fleeing Marion's house and she uses LifeAlert to call the police. Considering how difficult it is to truly go off the radar in modern America, and all the shady characters it requires, it's absolutely possible that Jimmy won't survive this second attempt to escape his past sins.
Kim falls in love with Jimmy.
Speaking of depressing endings, this is Decider. from Nicole Gallucci ofNobody looks out for each other like Jimmy and Kim. He manipulated Mesa's documents to get her to get her job. She married him so she could help without legal threats, and volunteering herself as her tribute is something Kim does.
Depressingly enough, Kim has already taken steps to move in this direction. In "Waterworks" we saw Kim confessing to Howard her Hamlin widow Cheryl (Sandrine Holt) all the terrible things she did to her former boss. Kim even admitted that Howard (Patrick Fabian) was murdered by cartel members.If Cheryl wants to prosecute, she probably can. not. I apologize in advance to Kim's new and very boring boyfriend for the loss of this smoke show.
Jimmy and Kim make them happy.
If Jimmy's death was the worst possible outcome, this is the best If Jimmy manages to escape and Cheryl doesn't file a lawsuit, maybe our dreams can come true and Jimmy and Kim can be together again. It brought out the absolute worst. But no one understands Jimmy the way Kim does. If they can find a replacement for their criminal hobby, they can lead a wonderful life.
