Gene Takavic calls Francesca for information in a post-Heisenberg world
Saul Goodman has always loved a good scoop. That personality trait didn’t go away when he became Gene Takavic, Cinnabon manager in Omaha, Nebraska.
In “Breaking Bad,”Gene connects with his former secretary Francesca Liddy (Tina Parker) via payphone. Gene seeks information because, after all, that’s how he made his money as a criminal lawyer — finding the right angle to play.
Francesca is less than willing to gossip about the people impacted by Saul’s work with Heisenberg. As his former associate, the heat is still on her back in Albuquerque. However, she does give up a few nuggets of information.
Walter White’s (Bryan Cranston) wife Skyler (Anna Gunn) got a deal. Meanwhile, authorities found Jesse Pinkman’s (Aaron Paul) car somewhere near the border. Moreover, the feds seized the money Saul made before becoming Gene Takavic, leaving him with nothing.
Francesca also reveals Huell Babineaux (Lavell Crawford) went home to New Orleans and Saul’s former colleague Bill Oakley “switched sides.” He’s now a Saul Goodman-inspired defense attorney. She concludes with a tidbit about Saul’s ex-wife Kim.
Kim Wexler called Francesca to see if Saul was alive after the events in ‘Breaking Bad’

He dials the operator and asks to be connected to Palm Coast Sprinklers, a business in Florida where he believes Kim works.
Kim ends up in Florida, not Nebraska
Some Better Call Saul fans thought Saul ended up in Nebraska on the hunt for Kim. However, Kim’s fate after she ends her relationship with Jimmy McGill lands her in Florida, as revealed in “Breaking Bad.”
