'Breaking Bad' Season 5 Spoilers: Will Walt Kill Skylar For Telling Walt Jr. Everything In ‘Ozymandias’?

Breaking Bad Season 5 Episode 11

Last night we saw Hank get killed by Jack after the shoot out and Walt's life spiral out of control. Marie tells Skylar that Walt will be arrested and convinces her sister to take all the right steps before it is too late. Part of that involves telling Walt Jr. the truth about his father. When Walt comes home, alive and not arrested, Skylar confronts him with a knife and tells him to leave. Walt Jr. supports his mother and Walt grabs his daughter and leaves. This results in an Amber Alert for the baby and Walt calls home to say some terrible things to Skylar. 'Breaking Bad' Season 5 Episode 14 Live Stream Online: Watch What Will Happen In 'Ozymandias'

While it seems fairly obvious that Walt said all those things to make sure Skylar is kept away from his crimes and can get away free, it raises a theory that many fans have about Skylar's fate: Will Walt kill her? The logic behind the theory is simple: Walt has a habit of taking on traits of those he killed--he took off crusts after killing Crazy 8, drives a Volvo after killing Gus, drinks his alcohol on the rocks after killing Mike--and in the Denny's scene, he arranges his bacon into his age (as Skylar does) and uses her maiden name on his fake ID. This theory suggests that Walt is going to murder Skylar or at the very least, feel responsible for her death. 'Breaking Bad' Spinoff Confirmed: 4 Fast Facts About 'Better Call Saul' Prequel

Anna Gunn, the actress who plays Skylar, revealed in an interview with Salon

that she has a way she sees the show ending. "I have a romantic notion of how I'd like to see things end, because I care about these characters, that somehow they would be able to extricate themselves from this business, and the family could be a unit again," said Gunn. "But I think that's impossible, because they've turned a corner that can never be unturned. Certainly, Walt and Skyler can't reach back toward each and forge anything that could be remotely healthy and OK, but there's a part of me that wishes it could be OK."

The thing is, many people have seen Skylar morphing as a character and it is likely that she, being the powerful female character that she is, will be the one to murder Walt. Gunn has previously admitted that her character is Walter's equal and not one to back down. "As an actress, I realize that viewers are entitled to have whatever feelings they want about the characters they watch," said Gunn to the NY Times. "But as a human being, I'm concerned that so many people react to Skyler with such venom. Could it be that they can't stand a woman who won't suffer silently or 'stand by her man'? That they despise her because she won't back down or give up? Or because she is, in fact, Walter's equal?"
