I think Skyler is a sympathetic character as well ..
Walt in Season One was faced with extreme stress due to the cancer diagnosis and the job loss, not to mention Skyler was pregnant and Walt just turned 50 .. during that time, I think many of us related to his situation, especially with his age and the scenario around Walter Jr cerebral palsy ..
Even though at that time Walt was offered help from Hank and Elliot, he turned it down ..
Thus began one of the most riveting transformations in TV history and a classic fork in the road / good / evil yarn ..
As we the fans wait for the final episodes, it's always good to take a moment and think back to where things started .. I'll surely miss the show, but like I said in an earlier post, I'm hoping Walt goes down in flames, not in a hospital bed with a morphine drip
He should pay the ultimate price for that choice he made ..
