Better Call Saul Finally Resolves One Of Breaking Bad's Greatest Cliffhangers
By RAFAEL MOTAMAYOR
"Better Call Saul" quickly redefined what we thought we knew about the world of "Breaking Bad." Although the show didn't set off to answer many questions from its predecessor, it still provided some unexpected closures, including the answer to one of the biggest cliffhangers revolving around Huell Babineaux (Lavell Crawford).
While Huell first appears in "Better Call Saul" as Jimmy’s hire, the first time we actually met Huell was on "Breaking Bad," where he got hired by Saul Goodman to be his bodyguard and professional pickpocketer. Huell’s last appearance on “Breaking Bad” was when he was left at a DEA safe house after being manipulated into accepting witness protection.
When Gene/Saul/Jimmy speaks to Francesca (Tina Parker) to get a recap of where things stand in Albuquerque, Gene asks about probably one of the few genuine friends he had over the course of both shows: Huell. Francesca then reveals that he went back home to Louisiana, free of any legal problems since the DEA held him illegally.
