% Skyler in Breaking Bad is such a bitch % Leah Rowe % 19 July 2019

I've recently re-watched Breaking Bad

I don't normally use the word bitch to describe someone. It is the ultimate slur, and it is extremely hurtful. It is a word that should only be used to describe either the worst psychopath or someone who otherwise does extremely morally contemptuous things.

Let's move straight to the subject matter:

Skyler White in Breaking Bad is the most contempuous, most sanctimonious and most hypocritical bitch I've ever seen. The fact that she's a fictional character does not matter, because the actress (who herself in real life is actually a very nice person, quite unlike Skyler White) is a very good actor so when I watch the show she feels natural and real.

Skyler reminds me of the person I lost my virginity to. The first person whom I ever loved.

I feel so passionately about this that this article is focussed entirely on that character. I am a huge fan of Breaking Bad. In my opinion, it's one of the best TV shows of all time!

I don't want to spoil the show, for people who haven't watched it, so I'll just say the following things about Skyler White:

(to be clear, I also despise Walter White, her husband and the main character. I will write a separate article about him at a later date)

  • She is weak. She completely (in every way) lacks the courage to stand on her own convictions. She's a little privileged bitch who has always had it good and whom has never suffered discomfort. Her morality is what was prescribed to her during childhood. At no point has she ever been forced to question her world. When push comes to shove, she folds and simply does the easiest most convenient thing, whilst only ever thinking about herself.

  • She despises Walter's actions but bends herself to his every whim. She does this because she likes all the money she's getting. She could have turned Walt in on day one and she would have been absolutely fine. She had Hank and Marie to take care of her (her weakness later leads to Hank being killed. She let Walt get away with his heinous crimes)

  • She is a coward

I don't really need to go on. All of this (and more) will be self-evident when you watch the show.

Walter White is pure evil and I'm glad he get caught. However, Skyler is worse. Her weakness and her willingess to capitulate to her husband is why she is worse.

I am surrounded by people like Mrs. White, on a daily basis. They are nice to me right now, but they'd stab me in the back in a heartbeat if it were convenient.
