ATTENTION: Minor spoiler alert to follow. Here’s your last chance to stop reading if you’re a fan of Better Call Saul and haven’t watched last night’s premiere yet. Ready?

(UPDATED with additional photos and comment from Cinnabon operator) In the chaos of the endgame of the AMC program “Breaking Bad,” one character decides to start over with a new identity. “If I’m lucky, in a month from now, best-case scenario, I’m managing a Cinnabon in Omaha,” this person tells another character. It wasn’t long before references appeared in the real world. (To state the obvious, if you’re saving the show for later, please skip the rest of this post.) [More]
