Fans may see a fully-transformed Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) in “Better Call Saul” Season 5. As the previous season finale showed how the criminal lawyer prepared for his much-awaited transformation, it might put his relationship with Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) at risk.

In an interview with Goldderby, Odenkirk talked about Kim, her relationship with Jimmy, and what is about to come in the new season.

“I wonder what’s gonna happen to Rhea’s character, Kim Wexler because I don’t feel like they could be together when Jimmy has become Saul,” Odenkirk said.

Kim, Saul can’t be together

Odenkirk can’t see how is it possible for Kim and Saul to live together, now that he is determined to scam people and work with bad persons to be the criminal lawyer that he wants to be.

Jimmy now feels strong for getting his law license back. However, Kim feels a little “distanced from him.”

As he tries to break the gap and make Kim see that he is doing great again, he will question her trust on him.

“In this case, she doesn’t wanna live her life, I don’t think, on the wrong side of the law. So I don’t know how they stay together. I think he’s gonna try to win her over,” the 56-year-old star said.

Jimmy's transformation as Saul Goodman

Odenkirk admitted Jimmy is getting closer to showing Saul’s dark side in “Better Call Saul” Season 5.

He is now burying the good side of himself and avoiding the desire to please everybody.

Now, Saul neither needs anyone’s approval nor appreciation. He is starting kicking back and pushing way any societal norms.

But despite Saul’s wrongdoing, Odenkirk commended the show’s writers, Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, for making Jimmy be a “likable guy,” who is still yearning for respect and be rewarded for what he is doing.

Saul is not asking for anything. He wants to be accepted, although he has yet to figure out how to use his natural skills to do so.

The only one who gives Jimmy acceptance is Kim. She has faith in him, and she is looking at his choice. Odenkirk knows Kim thinks what Jimmy is doing is not right, but it is understandable. So, she may end up thinking that they have no future together.

New season's release

It will take a little while before fans see “Better Call Saul” Season 5 on the small screen. The show has been pushed further and further on its every release.

In an interview with the AMC president of entertainment networks Sarah Barnett, she said the new season would be on hold due to “talent needs.”

“We said on our most recent earnings call that the series would come back for season five next year. It’s driven by talent needs, which we would not override if it would result in a worse show,” she said.

So, fans may expect to see “Better Call Saul” Season 5 in 2020.
