I've watched the super hit TV series Breaking Bad and I have a question regarding one of the important characters in this series, Saul Goodman.

How did this lawyer die in the series? Did they show the death of this character in the Breaking Bad series? Which episode was this guy last seen?

    You might want to watch the TV series called Better Call Saul and see him after the Breaking Bad events. Apr 24, 2017 at 6:39

    "How did this solicitor die in the series?" Why do you think he died? Did you watch Breaking Bad? Have you not heard of Better Call Saul? I don't understand!

    I don't remember anything from breaking Bad that suggest Saul is dead. What scene makes you think that he died? Apr 24, 2017 at 20:07

He didn't die. As we see in the prequel series Better Call Saul, Saul left Albuquerque at the end of Breaking Bad, and is a fast food manager under the name "Gene".

    Better yet, we see him leaving in pre-last episode, when he used that "clean slate" service about a week after Walter White did. He met Walter last time in a hideout below vacuum cleaner shop and left, said he don't want to do any business with Walter any more. Then Better Call Saul happens. Apr 24, 2017 at 7:12

    Another nod to the penultimate episode is the fact that he works at a Cinnabon. In the penultimate episode, Saul says words to the effect of "Now, the best I can hope for is to be a Manager of a Cinnabon"

    @cde: I like to think of it as a sequel that just happens to include one fairly long an extensive prequel-period flashback per season. Apr 24, 2017 at 13:57


In the final season of Breaking Bad, when Walter is about to embark on his mission to free Jesse, Saul Says:

"If I'm lucky, in a month from now, best-case scenario, I'm managing a
Cinnabon in Omaha."

Then at the beginning of the spin-off series Better Call Saul, you see Saul working in a Cinnabon, exactly as he described...

Every season in Better Call Saul opens with an eerie scene of Saul in his current state; miserable, hiding, but alive as of Season 3 which was recently released.
