Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler

I don’t like spoilers, so there are no spoilers in this post.

Two of the best shows on television in recent years have been Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. Since the second one is a prequel to the first, in one sense they can be viewed as one doubly long series.

If you haven’t watched them, I can’t recommend them highly enough. I think either one can be viewed first, but I’d suggest going with Breaking Bad first because then when the characters appear as their earlier selves in Better Call Saul, you’ll have a much richer experience.

Which brings me to Kim Wexler, the role played superbly by Rhea Seehorn (her first name is pronounced Ray).

Kim doesn’t appear in the Breaking Bad series, so there’s been a lot of speculation as to what will become of her.

You won’t find out from me, but I believe the show answered that question in its latest episode, and while I had envisioned several different fates for her, I didn’t predict that one.

All I’ll say is that after the searing developments in the previous two episodes, I found myself having incredibly mixed emotions for her in this one. And Rhea Seehorn was wonderful.

I’ll say it again, if you haven’t watched them, do so, right now.

You’ll find them both on Netflix, although the final season of Saul probably won’t appear there for a few months as it is still playing out on AMC.
