Better Call Saul creator Peter Gould has teased some of the big questions of the final season, including what kind of fate does Jimmy actually deserve.
After five tense seasons of Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad prequel only has one more season to go. Season six is currently in the works with a lot of very exciting plot threads to tie up.
Speaking to EW, creator of the show Peter Gould has posed a series of questions that will be key to season six. Speaking about the intriguing post-Breaking Bad sequences with Jimmy living in constant fear as Gene, Gould said:
“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? Not just: ‘What’s going to happen to him?,’ but ‘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?’ Obviously the end for everybody is death, but that may not be where we leave this guy. Is there any way for him to win any redemption after everything that he’s done?
“The other big question is: ‘Where is Kim Wexler when Saul Goodman is Saul Goodman dealing with Walt [Bryan Cranston] and Jesse [Aaron Paul]? Where’s Kim Wexler?”
The question of Kim’s fate or whereabouts during Breaking Bad has been an intriguing one from the get-go, it’s going to be fascinating to see what the writers come up with and how all the pieces will fall into place.
Better Call Saul season six is currently expected next year but with the Hollywood shutdown, don’t be surprised to see it pushed a little.
