WALLPAPER: Giselle (Better Call Saul)

better-call-saul-wallpaper-6-500

I don’t think it’s any secret that I didn’t really love any of the female characters on Breaking Bad. It’s the only major criticism (besides that one extremely obvious continuity error with Jane and her popsicle, which bugs me every time I watch that scene) I can find for a show that was perfect in so many ways. That’s why I’m so glad that Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould created Kim Wexler for Better Call Saul, because she is my favorite character on the series. In some part, this wallpaper is about Kim’s relationship to Jimmy. But on a deeper level, it’s just about the inner conflict within Kim herself. We don’t know as much about her childhood as we do Jimmy’s. We only know that she grew up in a small town in the Midwest and pursued law in New Mexico because she didn’t want to end up cashiering at the local Hinky Dinky for the rest of her life. Now she’s grown into a pragmatic person who has a specific future planned out and is trying to get there the right way. And yet, Jimmy brings out the con artist in her. She is intrigued and seduced by that lifestyle, despite her misgivings. During the season, Kim asks Jimmy what kind of lawyer he’s going to be, but she might as well be asking herself. And even though she ultimately decides she doesn’t want to be partners with him, I’m willing to bet we haven’t seen the last of Giselle St. Clair.

Next: I know I said I was working on new wallpapers for Nashville and Lemony Snicket but those didn’t get completed in time. Still coming though.
