Better Call Saul Season 6 paused its production and filming earlier in summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This has left many fans in a darker place as questions about the show continue to rise.
Cheat Sheet recalled, however, that the showrunner previously gave subtle hints about some of the characters. Following the latest season finale, it only makes total sense to tease the fandom a little bit more.
One of the most shocking events of Season 5 is Kim Wexler's sudden resignation from her job at Schweikart and Cokely, where she worked as a partner and head of the banking division. She left her office without taking anything, not even her plaques and awards.
Kim, however, returned to her desk drawer to grab the bottle stopper of the Zafiro Anejo tequila that she shared with Jimmy back in Season 3. She kept it as a souvenir from a con they pulled together.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Peter Gould said that the fans should keep an eye on the bottle stopper. While he did not specify anything about it, this seemingly gave the fandom a clue as to what will happen to Kim Wexler in Better Call Saul Season 6.
Fans would recall that in the Season 5 finale, she is concocting a plan to pull an ultimate con toward Howard. Reports said that the bottle stopper appears to be a "representative" of Kim's future plans and motivations.
Kim Wexler is one of the characters that are not present in Breaking Bad. But, a character's absence in the show does not necessarily mean death in the prequel. Despite this, many fans are seemingly concluding that Kim may see her demise in Better Call Saul Season 6.
Looper previously released an in-depth analysis of Kim's movements in the latter episodes of Season 5. It claims that the appearances of the Zafiro Anejo tequila in the Breaking Bad universe "signal a bad omen."
Every time the tequila entered a scene in the show, death came after a character. In the end, though, the showrunner, reportedly, promised that every character will get what they "deserve."
There is very little information about Better Call Saul Season 6. But, series star Giancarlo Esposito, who plays the role of Gus, previously revealed that the production and filming will likely resume in March 2021. He added that they were supposed to do it in September. But, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, they all had to postpone it to next year.
