Straitshooter June 14, 2017 Share June 14, 2017 Don't answer too quickly. I get the feeling there are still things we don’t know. The big question is what exactly has Jimmy/Saul done that keeps him laying low, looking over his shoulder and staying clear of police as Cinnabon manager in Omaha? In “Granite State,” the penultimate episode Breaking Bad, Saul high-tails it out of Albuquerque because the DEA was about to move in on Walter’s operation. He didn’t want to be around for that. But consider this: in “Felina,” Walter White, Todd, Uncle Jack and Lydia all die. Gus Fring, Eladio, the Salamancas and Mike were already taken care of, too. There’s nobody left from the criminal side to take revenge. And as far as the DEA is concerned, the entire Heisenberg case is closed because there’s no one to prosecute. The only remaining player is Jesse, who did not go on the run (as far as we know). And Jesse may not even be worth prosecuting at this point because he was not involved in Hank’s murder. The fact that he was kidnapped and coerced into cooking complicates the case against him. Even if the authorities know that Saul Goodman was Walter’s attorney, that does not necessarily make him party to his crimes (and he can invoke client-attorney privilege). So why, from the start of the series, is “Gene” doing his best to avoid attention? Is there something we don’t yet know? 2 Link to comment
