This week’s episode of Better Call Saul, “Inflatable,” inched us ever closer to Saul Goodman as Jimmy McGill had his first taste of the loud Saul Goodman suits in the episode. The episode may have also gotten us closer to a Saul Goodman connection to Kim Wexler after the events of Breaking Bad.
Let’s take a look at some of this week’s better Easter Eggs and other cool details.
Omaha, Somewhere in Middle America
Last week, a reader suggested that the Kansas City Royals T-shirt Kim Wexler was wearing tied her to Omaha because Omaha was the Triple-A team of the Royals, and that’s why Saul Goodman went to Omaha after the events of Breaking Bad. That reader, Steve P., may have been on the right track, actually, because this week we learned that Kim Wexler is from somewhere on the Kansas/Nebraska border, which potentially puts her within 100 miles of Omaha. Moreover, Kim said she thought she’d one day end up as a cashier at the Hinky Dinky grocery store in her hometown. Hinky Dinky was an actual grocery-store chain (that has since gone out of business), and wouldn’t you know it, the chain was originally started in Omaha.
What I’m saying is: It’s looking more and more likely that Saul Goodman ended up in Omaha for a reason very much associated with Kim Wexler, and there may be a happy ending for those two yet. Maybe they’ll shack up in that small Kansas/Nebraska border town, practice small-town law and adopt Jesse Pinkman.
And yes, I know that Ed selected Saul’s whereabouts for him after the events of Breaking Bad, but that doesn’t mean that Kim’s potential proximity to Jimmy doesn’t bring them back together.
