Re: Breaking Bad - Season 5

Skylar has a few antagonist functions and a little antihero too. Breaking Bad hasn't written her too badly by comparison to most TV shows writing women characters but that's an incredibly low bar.
Personally I could never quite work out if we were supposed to like Skylar or not. She is absolutely a believable character, but Walt seems to mostly be attached to her because she is -his- and not out of any love he holds for her anymore. The writers certainly haven't given us any reason to empathize with Walt's affection for her.
