I'm gonna copy and paste a great comment I saw on the avclub review for this episode that highlights Kim this season.
"It really felt like the development of Jimmy and Kim’s relationship this ENTIRE season was “a textbook example of somehow blindsiding us with what the character would obviously do.”
From maybe the third episode onward (after the cold open with the ants devouring the ice cream), I can think of each episode having a moment where Kim did something that completely subverted our expectations. Driving back to Acker’s home in the evening, asking Jimmy to pull the con against Mesa Verde, proposing marriage after the fiasco meeting, standing up to Lalo, not allowing Jimmy to end their relationship right then and there.
The episode titles like Wexler V. Goodman and Something Unforgivable were misleading. BCS always finds a way to go in unexpected directions, but this particular season really felt like a lesson in how to bring depth to your story by constantly subverting cliches.
Interestingly enough, Jimmy’s disbelief to Kim’s “pew-pew” in this finale mirrors perfectly with her being stunned by Jimmy’s “S’all good, man” in the season 4 finale. They are truly in this together."
