|They made Skyler's motivations too complicated to understand for her storyline. 1) Nobody understands why Skyler does the things she's done in Season 3 |
Skyler resents Walt on an unimaginable scale. It doesn't come across to viewers because the actress playing Skyler is playing the part as if she's constantly trying to keep her emotions in check. Walt was trying to live in a fantasy world where he could still have his picture-perfect life back (him cooking pot roast for the neighbor's kid) so Skyler had to show him exactly what the consequences of his criminal activity was (since calling the cops didn't work).
you started out on track with why people hate skylar but then your justification is totally wrong. this isnt as present tense as her finding out it goes back to ep1 of season 1 to events that were only hinted at.
first of all lets think how walter lived before, he had 2 jobs. one of which he was exposing himself to hazardous chemicals because of unsafe working condition which is probably why he got cancer.
why was he working 2 jobs, it wasnt because skylar was pregnant its because skylar never wanted to work she wanted to be a author and pottery maker living off her husband who she was literally working to death and taking him for granted.
it is in fact skylar who is in a fantasy land, shes not above having walter degrade himself and beg for money, but when it comes to work she wont do it until the family is in full on debt.
to me shes always put herself first before walt, before she ever knew and this IFT BS is just that BS it has nothing to do with loathing ted its just an excuse to do what she always wanted. it makes no sense especially after walter pleeded his case.
1. she never had a better alternative that wouldnt leave all the debt on walter. after all hes borrowing money from his friends or working 2 jobs
2. IFTing accompishes nothing but making herself look like a vapid ungrateful selfish, ignorant whore
3. she could have said no to taking the money accomplishing the same thing without being a whore
this loathing of walter is complete and utter none sense she has no reason to loath, sure she can be shocked and dissapprove but the wrong that walter did was only to himself, its not like she ever put her pride or honor on the line for walter. she just forced him down a line of incurring debt and debasing his own free will and pride
