@fallanassi tweeted: “I’m convinced that that phone call in tonight’s #bettercallsaul ended with his tantrum because he heard Kim was dead.
“That’s why he throws caution to the wind on his scam. We will see next week.”
And @bridgettefgray speculated: “For some reason I feel like Kim is dead or something tragic happened.
“I don’t believe he spoke with her. Just my gut but I hope my gut is wrong.”
Kim has been one of the biggest stand-outs and favourite additions to the Breaking Bad universe, so her fate in the next two episodes could determine how favourably the spin-off is remembered in years ahead.
Better Call Saul season 6 continues Mondays on AMC in the USA and the following Tuesday on Netflix in the UK.
