Did Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 1 Confirm A Major Kim Wexler Theory?

The “Better Call Saul” Season 6 premiere, “Wine and Roses,” breaks an ongoing tradition by not opening with a flash-forward to Jimmy’s life in Omaha, Nebraska, as Gene Takovic. Instead, the show pivots to a different moment in his life. We’re taken to the luxurious home he lives in at the end of “Breaking Bad” as it’s combed through by the police. Presumably, law enforcement has seized Jimmy’s possessions as part of a larger investigation into the laundry list of crimes he helps Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) commit while working as Saul Goodman. Jimmy’s home does not appear to be occupied by just one person. When the camera swoops through his bathroom, it briefly shows two bathroom sinks — a notable feature of Jimmy and Kim’s bathroom at their apartment on “Better Call Saul.”

Shared sinks don’t seem like too much of a smoking gun when it comes to proving Kim is still with Jimmy post-“Breaking Bad.” But, as an investigator loads a box of items from the house into a truck, another small item “Better Call Saul” fans should recognize falls out: the tequila bottle cap Kim keeps from her first scam with Jimmy back at a hotel bar in Season 2’s “Switch.” Audiences last saw this fancy bottle cap in Season 5’s penultimate episode, “Bad Choice Road.” In that episode, Kim makes sure to take it with her when she quits her job at Schweikart and Cokely. So, we know that’s Kim’s bottle cap, not Jimmy’s, which means if that item was at the house, then she was, too. This whole time.
