Here's What Happens After The Better Call Saul Finale, According To Rhea Seehorn
In the series finale of “Better Call Saul,” Kim and Jimmy finally get to share a private moment in a visiting cell after Jimmy has been sentenced to 86 years in prison for his crimes. While the status of their relationship is up in the air at the conclusion of the episode, Rhea Seehorn believes that Kim still loves Jimmy and that moment won’t be the last time she sees him.
In the post-finale interview with AMC Talk, Seehorn admitted that she is a “hopeless romantic” and thinks that Kim is “absolutely going to try to figure out how to reduce [Jimmy’s] sentence!” However, she also said that she was still processing the meaning of the ending and didn’t “know if they're ever going to live happily ever after.”
While Seehorn’s ending may not be canon, she explained that the finale had purposefully been written in a vague way so that it could be open to such interpretations. She praised Peter Gould for “masterfully” writing an ending that “when the screen goes black, [...] people will continue the story in their head, that it's a story that is still on a trajectory that is going.”
