If you like women so much, SuperPippen, why don't you just marry them?

At this point in the series, Walter has:

-Manufactured vast amounts of meth, an incredibly dangerous and damaging drug
- Directly killed at least 8 people
- indirectly killed an entire airplane of people
- poisoned a child
- lied to and manipulated his Skylar, Hank, Walt Jr., and Jesse, and others
- attempted to seduce his principal in retribution for his wife's infidelity (I don't blame him for this one, though)
- attempted to rape his wife
- generally acted like an arrogant, egotistical piece of shit



Obviously, I'm only focusing on the negatives, but you should get my point.
In that case, then sure, walt is
wful, but hes the main character. I do see your point though, were blaming skylar when shea done a fraction of what walt has done. Him becoming evil triumphs infidelity.

I don't see what the big deal is. I mean no matter how objectively you try to look at it it's only natural to feel hatred towards characters like Skylar (not Marie though, personally I like her). Remember this is a show that focuses on one main character who's view is often contrary to other characters who are on his side. We're not exactly looking at this from a neutral standpoint.

They need food that looks light food even after it's been out under hot lights for a while. They adjust for actors and for lighting, but unless the person has to consume the food in the scene, they are not going to wait on the eggs.

Also, that bacon is actually veggie bacon.

Let's all overlook the fact that, in spite of Walt's insistent claims that he "did it for the family," an opportunity had very clearly presented itself for him to to easily and legally pay for all of his cancer treatment, as well as get himself a better job and access a better life for him and his family. Let's forget about how Walt's ego is the sole reason that his family couldn't have had a better life.

And while we're at it, let's overlook the fact that Walt has had several chances to leave the drug game, and has only succeeded in dragging himself and his family deeper into his mess.

And why get angry at Walt for trying to force himself onto his clearly repulsed and frustrated wife. Who cares that Skylar's anger over her husband's double life as a criminal is a completely logical way for her act?

Hell, let's get angry at Skylar for not even letting Walt rape her that one time!


I love women, they've been good to me. I hate Skylar. Is it that hard to see?

Obviously, I'm only focusing on the negatives, but you should get my point.
I don't remember that, what episode was it again? And how do you rape your own wife lol?

I don't understand why you are getting so defensive over Sky. Obviously nobody hates her, it's just that her part of the plot isn't as.... intriguing, it's just plain boring imo.

The show's name is Breaking Bad. What else do you expect from Walt? The goal of the show is to gradually turn Walt from a Protagonist into more of an Antagonist.

And just for the hell of it, let's try to count how many people Walt has directly or indirectly killed.

Let's see

Krazy-8 and Another Guy in Season One (The other dealer died in the RV while Walt choked Krazy-8 to death with that bike lock)

Tuco (indirectly, technically Hank killed him)

Jeese's girlfriend in Season 2 (Technically he didn't attempt to kill her, he just chose not to save her while she was choking on her own vomit)

2 of Gus's Employees(Half Measures, ran over one and shot the other)

Gale (Full Measures,indirectly, but Walt asked Jeese to kill him at the last second)

Tyrus

Gus

Tio (The old guy who rings a bell)

That's all I remember for now. Tell me if someone's missing.

GTFO. She could have left him, gone to hank/police or anything else but FCK Ted and go along with Walt while being a fcking C@NT.

I think the point isn't that she is innocent, but she is certainly more of a victim and less of an asshole than Walt.

As far as TV goes though, I like Walt's character more.

People seriously don't know how you rape your wife? Same way you rape anybody. By forcing them to have sex when they don't want to.

What I hate about Skylar is her self righteous bullshit that she keeps reiterating considering the fact that she is walking the same path Walt took in keeping his family together and sound. They are both cooks, one cooks Ice the other books.

I don't remember that scene as well but your question is dumb, imagine a wife does not feel like having sex and refuses her husband, the husband then forces himself on her and ****s her clearly against her will which makes it a rape case.
