But what does going all-in with him mean? She's gonna become a two-
bit shyster like he's becoming?
Hard to say. Turning a blind eye to his schemes, maybe. Using spousal privilege to avoid incriminating each other, probably.
Kim’s moral compass has been slipping for quite some time. Her attempt to abort the commercial plan (especially in light of Schweikart getting wise to the collusion) was clearly a panicked attempt to cut her losses and right the ship. But that last conversation with Jimmy clearly laid out her emotional conflict, which she usually keeps tightly under wraps. Walking the line between saint and sinner is ripping her apart. Jimmy does it with ease, but his own descent has accelerated with the random attacks on Howard and being hired by Lalo and Nacho. He’s stopped caring about people and consequences. She hasn’t.
Jimmy is a conman who tried and failed to straighten up and fly right, and Kim is a straight arrow who likes getting the occasional taste of the con. They’re both addicts of the con. That’s the middleground where they spark off of each other, but neither can go fully in the direction of the other. This is not going to end well.
