First, Kim is going to work for the firm that represents Sandpiper Crossing just as Jimmy is mourning the death of one of his Sandpiper clients and the star of his commercial.
Secondly, after working to become the kind of lawyer that he thinks Chuck and Kim would respect, Jimmy finds out that Kim has fallen in love with the indigent defense work that he was doing at the start of the show.
Those are are both nice, subtle payoffs to seeds planted in the first two seasons.
Theyíre like ships in the night. Season one Jimmy and season four Kim might have been able to work. Now, though, Kim is slowly finding herself in a way Jimmy couldnít by doing PD work, whereas Jimmy is backsliding into crime as a coping mechanism.
It also appears that the Sandpiper plotline may yet pay off (literally, in Jimmyís case, since heís still due his share of the eventual settlement). There are a lot of foundational elements from the early seasons which are slowly and subtly coming into play, now.
I wouldnít be surprised if Jimmyís share of the eventual Sandpiper settlement gets rolled into his new practice, to be based in a strip mall which can be easily accessed by the sort of clients he wants to attract. And maybe itíll allow him to buy a Cadillac.
