“We typically get our scripts one at a time with some overlap so you can learn the next thing you’re going to do,” Seehorn said. “I know I can speak for Bob too and pretty much all of my cast members have spoken about it, that’s all your RAM can handle to act out the present moment you’re asked to act out. But since this required quite a bit of wig adjustments and a whole different look, I was conceptually aware of it a bit early, but I didn’t have the actual script.”
Gould added that Kim will forever deal with the aftermath of her crimes.
“I think it’s a different show in the sense that a lot of this show is about living with what you’ve done and living with life rather than ending it,” Gould said.

Gould said the trick was to stop Kim from doing it Better call Saul just long enough for her return to have the greatest impact.
“I remember calling Rhea and saying, ‘We don’t know how many episodes, but we think we’re going to take you offstage for a little bit,'” Gould said. “It’s the word we always use, we thought it was good showmanship, as Vince America’s Sweetheart says, but Jimmy and Kim’s relationship is also central to the show. Taking that off the board for a while was dramatically the right decision in my opinion. I think we called you Rhea and said, ‘Hey, you’re going to be out for a while, but don’t worry, we love your character. We love you and you will come back.’ I think that was pretty early.”
