You know, seeing the Cinnabon scene again today made me realize what Breaking Bad and the X-Files had in common, which was this ability to see the darker, twisted side in the mundane, that seemingly ordinary stuff hides dark, horrible secrets.  In the X-files, it's town with monsters, vampires, etc.  In BB, it's that seemingly normal people on the street are criminal masterminds, murders and brutal killers right beneath the surface.

There was something great about seeing Saul as a balding, pudgy dude working as a manager at Cinnabon, this sense of dread and defeat, that he's got nothing else left but to trudge through this existence... and you feel like no one who works with him has any clue of who he is or the dark things that he's hiding from.  And I love how he has to close his blinds and get drunk to even remember who Saul Goodman was, the way he hid the tape and passport under the sink just gives me the impression that he's a fugitive waiting for the heat to die down, but it never will.  He's gone from hiding to... I dunno, living purgatory.  It kind of evokes Walter in that cabin.

I wonder how many people think that's going to be the end of the series... I feel like it's going to be the end of the first or second season.  His sins might catch up to him earlier than we think.
