In the Breaking Bad episode “Granite Slate,” Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) predicted his own fate of managing a Cinnabon somewhere in Nebraska after the collapse of Walter White’s meth empire. The series premiere of Better Call Saul opened with the titular character changing his name from Saul to Gene, and managing a Cinnabon in Omaha, Nebraska. “I just wrote that scene and it sounded funny, but it never occurred to me in a million years that we’d actually show what we show at the beginning of episode 1,” says Bad writer and Saul co-creator Peter Gould.

Cinnabon spokeswoman Loryn Franc was just as shocked as everyone else to hear the once slick lawyer make such a specific prediction.
