By the end of season 3, a near-fatal car crash forced Jimmy and Kim to re-evaluate what’s truly important to them - and how far they’re willing to go to pursue their ambitions.

While Kim chooses to take a step back from her fledgling solo practice to recuperate, Jimmy tries to make amends with his brother. Chuck rejects Jimmy’s attempt to reconcile and soon relapses, tearing apart his house to remove any last pulse of electricity and then finally setting a deadly fire.
