she cheated on her husband, she had a huge problem with a dying cancer patient smoking a little weed to ease the pain (fuckin' bitch), and she was just an overall, snippy, nosy, bitch. I hope she dies in the end. and Walt is left with his children and his cancer goes away.

Her smug self-righteous face makes me want to slap the television about 98% percent of screentime. Those remaining two% could be considered her 'strong and complicated woman' redeeming qualities, but they often co-exist with the remaining 98% of PURE SEETHING BITCH.

I don't wish her death, but I prefer they would take her down a notch or two on the 'overly self righteous' scale.

yeah she pretends to be sooo self-righteous but she's involved in illegal activity of her own. she's been helping to cover up Ted's fraud basically since she started working there again. i mean if she left him just cuz he made some meth during a bad time in his life then she's a real bitch. however, if she knew about all the people he'd killed then i could see that as a real reason to want him to stay away. i swear, she's so high and mighty about the drugs simply because her brother-in-law is DEA and doesn't want to look bad in front of him and her sister.

EDIT: i just remembered the specific reason she left him was because she thought he was dealing pot. i mean that is an even WORSE reason to end a 17 year relationship especially considering he was just doing it to help her out.

I like her. Put yourself in that women's position. She was being lied too and to worry about her husband's cancer, she was PREGNANT, so the stress of that enhanced everything else.

She was very very supportive of Walt. And I wouldn't want any drug dealer around my kids either. Walt almost got them killed.

And yes she did some bad things also but nothing as near as bad as Walt.

I do find myself extremely annoyed with her at times, and she does bitchy things (the end of I.F.T. made me want to punch her), but I don't despise her. Walt does many things that also shouldn't be done in a healthy relationship, and he lies to her more than she does to him. She has the right to be depressed and angry, because her whole previously calm lifestyle is falling apart, and she doesn't want her or her husband or her children to die.

People on here are total hypocrites. Loving Walter who's a controlling, lying, evil guy. You're saying him poisoning children to get his own way is ok with you guys but a woman who is forced to stay in a relationship she doesn't want to be in and rebels by sleeping with another man makes her a total bitch? How does that make sense. I swear women are so critical and bitchy of other women, you girls look seriously pathetic.
Skylar is extremely smart, the stuff she pulled off in season 4 was amazing! (I wasn't too keen on her character in season 1 but as the show went on I started liking her character more). She was lied to by Walt, and he FORCED her to be put in a situation she wanted no part of, not to mention how he put HER and their family in danger. Skylar's the one who's out to protect their family in season 4, she's FORCED to practice illegal activities in order for her family to be kept safe while for most of the time Walt only concerns himself with protecting his ego (i.e. Telling Hank that he "might not have the right guy") which could have ruined everything! She has a RIGHT to be angry or depressed, she didn't want anything to do with this. She wanted a healthy husband and a happy family, and you guys are calling her out because she's upset for being brought into a dangerous drug environment? Seriously?! She never wanted the money that Walter provided, so stop acting like she asked for it. WALTER could have swallowed his pride and rather allowed family friends to pay for it (which they would have) or allowed for Walt Jr. to raise money for him (which could have raised quite a bit), but no he had to be arrogant and get the money himself, he had to endanger his entire family and force his wife into illegal activities to protect his ego.
Skylar had a RIGHT to sleep with Ted. She was being forced to stay in a relationship she wanted no part in. Walter was a horrible person for forcing himself on her, it was borderline abusive and you could see how upset she was. I cheered when she told Walter she fucked Ted, good on her! She won't be some submissive housewife that does as she's told!

Honestly, I find her realistic. I mean, imagine being in her place and having your spouse involved in the kinds of things that Walter got involved in. Wouldn't you be hurt by all the lies and his sudden strange behavior, all the time he slipped off by himself with no explanation? She comes off as something of an antagonist because Walt is constantly having to tiptoe around her and deal with problems involving her, but I don't think this reflects her personality as much as it's just a plot device. Most people would act the same way that she did, at least if they loved their spouse/family as much as she does and were as intelligent and perceptive as her.

CptKwirk picked yes!!!! What a BITCH!!!!!!!:
Simple Walt is our anti hero protagonist and Skyler is a jumped up bitch there is many times where she is all high and mighty for all the small things that had previously happened. For example giving Walt a hard time if he lied or he was out the house for extended periods, she is pulling away from a man who is dying of cancer for fuck sake! She has been with the guyy 17 years and she cant take this strange erratic behaviour with a pinch of salt! Who the fuck does she think she is! He has a shit tonne of crap on his plate. Lets also add the fact that Skyler questions Ted as to why he is doing illegal fraud and about if the kids found out he answered you do what you can for the family to survive you dont think that far ahead. She would not give him a chance. She forgave her sister just like that! Whats worse is you can see Walt is so desperate he needs support so she comes home as Walt is being so nice to her and she says right in his face in the most vindictive and spitefull way to a husband and father of 17 years "I fucked Ted" all smug like it was her right and Walt go fuck your self I dont care you were doing anything you could with what skills you have to stop the family from going under and cover all the medical bills. I could understand if she broke down crying and said what have you done promise me you will never do that again. She isnt even a morally good character anyhow. She smokes with the baby and helps Ted with illegal fraud, allows her sister to get away with all the stealing and even before sh knew about the drugs was flirting with Ted i.e knocking the pens on the floor on purpose. All in all she sat there while walt put himself through misery to help his family with his burden so the the verdict in my eyes she is an unnecessary evil in Walts life lets enjoy the fun stuff of this entertainment and let Walt become a drug king pin. Its good entertainment. Only in TV life I do not condone the manufacturing and supplying of Meth whatsoever

FreeBeans picked No.:
When I first watched the show, I didn't like her at all. Now that I'm rewatching the show I'm beginning to understand her behavior and actions and I must say that she's perfectly in line most of the time. Skylar does a lot of drastic things to protect her family (as Walt once had) but Walt's intentions took a darker turn and now he only has ego in mind. He became a straight up sociopath who only cares for himself and it's surprising to me that there are people who still have sympathy for Walt. He's cold blooded, manipulative, and maniacal whereas Skylar never was, or will be. She's the human half of the relationship.

Even in the start of the show he always lying to her and never telling the truth. Not really an ideal partner. And one more thing, there's only so far that the cancer excuse can really take you. What about Hugo the Janitor? You think he appreciates being sold down the river so that Walt can cook more meth. Walt is a completely self serving scumbag with almost no regard for others, even at the start of the show.

Early on I found her a pretty frustrating character. If there's one thing I can't stand it's a nosy bitch. Ever notice how despite everything Walt isn't nosy in her business. He also loves her dearly. They've been married for sixteen years so obviously there was once something there. They say it was Walt's transition into a criminal that drove her away but from the very beginning I could see she was already losing her feelings for Walt. She still cared about him but not in a romantic way.
Every time he treated Walt crossly I would feel frustrated because I was seeing things through his eyes but I would always try to rationalize. I tried to understand her, feel sorry for her, take her side... but then she turns around and pisses me off. She smoked cigarettes while pregnant just because of an argument with Walt. Even after the baby was born she smoked while still in the same room as the baby just because she was too stubborn to leave Walt with the baby. It is already annoying since I hate seeing people smoke in the first place. Then there's her affair with Ted, a guy that sexually harassed her years ago. Yes, he was sorry and she forgave him because they are old friends but still. Everytime Ted came into a scene I felt like their "attraction" was being forced down our throats. He was blatantly flirting with her and she did it right back. When she discovers he's breaking the law to make money she claims that she will not be a part of it and leaves... which actually made me respect her... until the next day where she returns to work and continues to cover up for Ted and flirt. To add on to her shallowness, she chews Walt up for breaking the law to make money even though she knows well enough that he was doing it to provide for her and the kids, which was the exact same reason Ted was breaking the law as well. Walt BEGS her to forgive him. He never begs for anything but she still walks all over him.
But all that I can forgive. I could forgive all that if she would just turn Walt and Ted in to the authorities. Because at least then she's just an annoying character that still stood by what she thinks is right. Both Walt and Ted are not good influences on her and yet she just can't bring herself to turn them in despite scolding them on their behavior. But of course that might be understandable since she "loves" them but wait no that's not it.... She covers up for Ted because she desperately wanted to sleep with him as well as there's the fact that he's her boss. Selfish. She covers up for Walt because she thinks Walter will end up dead soon anyway. Heartless and selfish.

Skyler you have managed to be one of the biggest bitches in fiction.

To the last poster, did you conveniently ignore the fact that Skyler explicitly stated her reasons for keeping Walt's meth trade a secret was to ensure that their kids wouldn't have that stigma of having a criminal for a dad?

Frankly, her behavior makes me question the whole institution of marriage.

Walt doesn't 'break bad' for fun. He doesn't like what he does (at least at first). He does it for his wife and kids. It must shatter the poor guy to see the wife react like that. To see her accuse him of being bad for the kids. It's outrageous.

@negativehippie - Personally, I don't buy that reason you said she stated. I think that's just what she tells herself. I think the real reason is that she wants to hurt Walt.

"Skylar had a RIGHT to sleep with Ted." That is a comment that someone typed up there... are you kidding me after 17 years of marriage your husband never even looks at another woman and yes his actions were wrong i mean drugs are problems but he still was willing to die for his family but to cheat on him and i have to point out she cheated on him before she knew about the drugs which had nothing to do with it how can you say you have the right to sleep.. with another man after that many years of marriage, you probably like sleeping around a lot and you just agreed with another person that does the same by subconsciously agreeing with that cheating wife lol..i mean Walt yes he did do a lot of shit but in the end he truly loved his wife never cheated on her and by the way cheating after 17 years of marriage i don't know how it feels like but only after 4 i got cheated on wasn't even married yet and it actually felt worst than someone stabbing you in the chest over and over again

Makes me sick everytime she comes into frame. What person would not love the fact that a love one would take such great risks to insure there families financial survival. Risking life, incarceration and there own moral sanity so that you have no worries. Who doesn't get behind that 100%??? Instead he gets a piece of crap wife that cheats, does illegal shit with another man ( before she even knew what Walt was doing mind you) kicks him out of house, using kids as leverage, wishes his cancer on him, call police on him to be thrown out of his own house, never happy always annoyed or bitching about something. Yes I truly believe she is and in total agreement with you.

@justflo
Skylar wanted to leave Walt, you moron. She wanted nothing to do with him, he manipulated her and lied so that he could stay in the house. When you no longer want to be with someone and tell them that you want the relationship to end but the other person refuses and tries to force you to stay together then, yeah, you do have a right to sleep with other people.
Also, I'm a virgin, you utter knobhead, so trying to imply that I sleep around a lot is just you being a massive prick, congrats.
"walt would die for his family", oh blah, blah, blah. Walt's the reasons his family is in danger in the first place, he put his ego and lust for money before his families safety.
The fact that you think a person sleeping with another person after they've told their spouse that they want to end things is worse than: raising a drug empire, murdering a number of people, getting your family involved in drug cartels, risking your brother in laws entire career, poisoning a child in order to get what you want, letting a girl choke to death to get what you want, sending hitmen to kill off numerous people, lying/manipulating your entire family to get what you want, etc. Only says something about your morals, mate.
P.S. Go fuck yourself you utter twat :)

I think a lot of people were bad in this show... and everyone just found it annoying that she was in the way of Walt and Jesse's meth making. While that is kind of true, there's not really a reason to hate her... even though she cheated on her husband and gave away some of the money to Ted.

Walt and Jesse are murderers and whatnot, so they're actually worse y'know. Skyler seemed kind of snide and controlling from the beginning, though, before Walt started making drugs. Not worth hating, but definitely annoying.

So, anyway, I'm gonna change my 3 month ago answer. It's not going to be 'yes' or 'no'.

I agree almost word for word with some of the above comments! Skylar was sooo Unlikable! I really wish she had been Likable, it would have made it more conflicting, but Skylar was such a Self Righteous Hypocritical Smug Controlling Bitch that I often would side with Walt! Seeing how Walt was a Murdering Criminal that says a lot about Skylar's Horrible Personality, that he was the more Sympathetic of the two! I am not sure if it was the Writing or Anna Gunn's acting but I never liked Skylar although I did sympathize with her and thought she was Interesting at times!
