Rhea Seehorn Addresses Kim’s Confession
When Kim confessed to the whole lot she’d performed to defame Howard Hamlin (Patrick Fabian) in a sworn affidavit, she was sincere with the whole lot aside from one essential element. She had been in touch with Jimmy, however didn’t reveal this data, truly telling Hamlin’s widow that she does not know if her Saul is alive. Seehorn defined why Kim selected to omit that one element from her confession, feeling that the selection was as much as Jimmy to show himself in.
“We see the tragedy of it because we know what she could’ve been — she was normally a lively and passionate person — and I think she decided she can actually be active in atoning for her actions … partially on a dare from Jimmy but also realizing that he’s right, she could do more about it other than living under a rock. So she goes and atones and makes her peace. The only lie she still tells at the end of the day is ‘if in fact, Saul Goodman is alive’ — she never gives him up or lets the feds tap her phone. I thought that was telling — it’s the one line she won’t cross, as far as she just can’t bear to be the person who’s going to seal his fate. That’s up to him.”
At the top of the day, Seehorn is happy with Kim’s ending. While Kim is clearly not thrilled about Jimmy getting locked up, she’s pleased with him, and on the identical time, she’s able to “face the music” herself.
“I don’t think she’s happy that he’s in prison for this many years but she’s happy he had a chance to save his soul and that he chose to. And she chose that for herself as well …. but I think she’s ready to face all the music … to give herself any chance to have an authentic life again.”
Maybe, simply possibly, Kim Wexler will return in her own Better Call Saul spinoff series.
