Howard’s funeral

Nothing more terrible than a funeral without a body present. Thus was Howard Hamlin’s farewell at the HHM building, a law firm destroyed in every conceivable way. Jimmy and Kim, following their roles, attend the ceremony in tribute to who they believe committed suicide after suffering a crisis due to his addiction to cocaine.

This version is not credible for Cheryl Hamlin, Howard’s wife, who will rebuke the married couple that they were the last to see him and that there is something else behind this. And she will also reprimand Jimmy about the tricks and tricks he played on her. While Saul will open his heart to talk about Howard and his brother Chuck, Kim will continue with the addiction plan and convince the woman that her husband was a drug addict. There is the break between Jimmy and Kim: the fun is over, the end of the game.

Kim stops being a lawyer and Jimmy becomes Saul Goodman

Finally, Kim Wexler has decided to stop being a lawyer after attending Howard’s funeral. This, of course, reached the ears of Jimmy, who hurried back to his house at night to confront his wife. Exasperated and confused, he proposes that they move, that they rest from everything and that she can later return to the law, her life.

Nevertheless, Kim will have her final resolution, the one she was building when her romance with Jimmy began: she was just doing it for fun. Yes, she loves him, but there are no more games, especially after the damage they did to Howard. Kim assures that love is not enough for them to stay together and she leaves the house. She already had her bags packed before Jimmy arrived. It seems irreversible.

Thus, in a miraculous ellipsis, Jimmy McGill had his full transformation into Saul Goodman and “Better Call Saul” got its transition into “Breaking Bad.” The time jump has been made and, from here, you can only expect what really happened with the lawyer after the story of Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul).
