“Breaking Bad” has just a few episodes to go until it walks off into the sunset for good, while it's still considered one of the greats to ever grace the TV screen. It didn't burn out, it bowed out and that worked well for many shows that came before “Breaking Bad,” such as “Sex and the City, “Sopranos” and “Sienfeld” to name a few.
According to the Huffington Post on Aug. 25, it is during these last few episodes that Walter's wife, Skyler, is taking shape to become much more than just an anchor and responsibility at home to accent her husband's character. Through the first few seasons "Breaking Bad" had Skyler as the symbol for one-half of Walt's double life, the ordinary half. Other than providing that foundation at home, her character was fairly mundane.
Now she's stepping up to the plate taking back her family from Walt's secret meth manufacturing life. Viewers got to see this when she confronted the neurotic Lydia when she came to the car wash. You also saw her stand up to Hank as he tried to bulldoze her into an interview putting the finger on Walt and his meth dealing business. She even took a slap in the face from her sister for the good of the family.
The Huffington Post suggest that Skyler may actually be the key to the show's denouement after all this time of having a stagnant existence on the sidelines of Walt. Is it Skyler that will make sense of the ending and pull together the plot in a way no one saw coming? Is she about to become the Bonnie to Walt's Clyde side?
