‘Better Call Saul’: What Happens to Kim Wexler and Howard Hamlin – Grim Endings for Both on BCS?

Better Call Saul’s Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) and Howard Hamlin‘s (Patrick Fabian) fates on BCS are a hot topic among BCS fans. Many fans think they have figured out what will become of these popular characters based on the show’s love of foreshadowing.

Better Call Saul: Kim Wexler and Howard Hamlin

Kim and Howard are likely doomed to horrible outcomes because everyone Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) comes into contact with has a terrible destiny.

If Breaking Bad is any indication. No one has a future after dealing with Saul Goodman (aka Jimmy McGill).

The Fate of Kim Wexler on Better Call Saul

Kim Wexler probably won’t die. Better Call Saul’s creator, Vince Gilligan, said that if the show ever had a spinoff, it would be based around Kim.

But that doesn’t mean Kim’s future life will be all roses.  Her involvement with Jimmy McGill will come with dire consequences, as it does for everyone in his life.  Kim seems to be turning to the dark side, and many fans think she will cross a line from which she can’t come back. It’s the proverbial point of no return.

Since Kim Wexler’s nowhere to be seen in Saul Goodman’s future life on Breaking Bad, most fans think she disappears either because of legal problems or to save her life.  The most common theory is that Kim will use the services of the vacuum cleaner repairman (Robert Forster) to change her identity and disappear forever. As reported earlier, the two show’s timelines probably will not overlap.

On the last episode of Better Call Saul, viewers saw Saul Goodman in a flash forward scene. He was calling the vacuum cleaner man to arrange his new identity. This foreshadowing leads fans to think we’ll soon see Robert Forster on BCS.  Will he show up to make Kim disappear in a future episode? Fans think so.

The Fate of Howard Hamlin on BCS

Howard Hamlin has been in a downward spiral ever since his friend and mentor Chuck McGill (Michael McKean) died. Howard thinks Chuck killed himself and he’s to blame. Jimmy didn’t help matters when he told Howard it’s his cross to bear. Watch it in the video below:

Fans have been waiting to for a character to kill themselves because of hints given on Breaking Bad. In one scene, Saul Goodman said to Walter White (Bryan Cranston), “I’m not gonna find you hanging in the closet, am I?”

Saul’s words were oddly specific and typical of the type of Easter eggs the show likes to use.  It’s obvious that Saul was speaking from personal experience and someone close to him at one point hung themselves. Probably in a closet.

Howard Hamlin is extremely depressed and appears almost suicidal. Is Howard the person Jimmy will find hanging in some closet?
