Here's how perfect casting brings a whole new meaning to Better Call Saul season 6's Kim Wexler flashback.

Her name may not be written above the door, but Rhea Seehorn's Kim has become every bit as important to Better Call Saul as Saul Goodman himself.

The Breaking Bad prequel has gradually peeled back Kim's layers, but only delved into her past on one occasion - Better Call Saul season 5

Better Call Saul season 6 revisits Kim's past with "Axe & Grind." Set sometime around her season 5 flashback, a young Kim is caught shoplifting by a store detective.

Kim's mom actually displays pride in her daughter's audacious theft, then reveals she swiped the earrings her daughter was caught stealing in the first place.

Better Call Saul season 6's flashback sequence shockingly proves Kim's criminal streak began way before she encountered Jimmy McGill, and by pulling scams in the present day

The purpose of season 6's 1980s visit is to flip the script and reveal Kim actually followed in her mom's footsteps.

That groundbreaking twist is made all the more effective by the physical resemblance between characters, with Beth Hoyt's ability to pass for Rhea Seehorn
