Kim's future hinges upon a single decision in Better Call Saul season 6, episode 6 - can her light-fingered flashback explain that shocking u-turn?

Since viewers are already keenly aware of Jimmy McGill's Breaking Bad future, Rhea Seehorn's Kim Wexler becomes a more focal figure in Better Call Saul's final season.

She and Jimmy have co-concocted a plan to disgrace Howard Hamlin and pocket big money from the Sandpiper case, but Kim is very clearly the operation's driving force.

Jimmy serendipitously bumps into the real Casimiro at a liquor store and spots a broken left arm that completely discredits their falsified photos.

Kim faces a choice - attend the meeting and abort the scam, or forsake legitimacy and ensure the scam goes ahead.

Kim's u-turn isn't just shocking because she spurns a golden career opportunity, but because Jimmy - hardly a man known for exercising caution

Kim is absolutely hellbent on making the scam work, however, and Better Call Saul season 6's flashback provides the context necessary to understand why.

Better Call Saul's big u-turn doesn't just represent Kim Wexler turning away from a legitimate life, but denotes a return to her earring-nabbing days as Slippin' Kimmy.
