Walt made that clear from the jump... As the show progressed and he beat cancer and already caught up in the drug game he started to become his alter ego... Heisenberg which is a more self oriented prideful person... Heisenberg is selfish... Not Walt... Walt does anything for his family... Heisenberg didn't show up until season 3... The shows transformation completely went over head... Walt could have k!lled Gus at any time... It wasn't until Gus threatened his family that he knew Gus couldn't live anymore...
Skylar was a !! for the first few seasons... She didn't care how Walt felt about dealing with cancer she only cared about how she felt and how she would miss him... She wasn't thinking about how they could pay for treatment that may not even work when their family is already in debt... When Walt would explain his feelings Skylar didn't care she wanted him to do what she wanted... Like asking his ex friends for money when she knows Walt doesn't like handouts or to be given anything like charity... Forcing him to take treatments when he does not want to spend his last days in a bed slowly dying as his family looks at him in pity... She didn't care how Walt felt... And Walt was living his life as if there was no tomorrow since he was dying... He wanted to make sure when he was gone his family had money to live on... He couldn't tell his wife as u see how she acted when he did tell her how he was getting the money... So he did the right thing in not telling her cuz telling her made her go !! her boss and want to break up their family... How can u be so naive to blaming Walt for hiding his activities when u saw the outcome when he finally told the truth?
homie i fully understand the concept of the show, thats why your post is funny to me. he basically called himself a !! when he was talking to the therapist when he went nak3d in the store. he decided NOT to get treatment because he felt as though he FINALLY had control of something...those are his words. he was 50 years old and felt like an underachieving mundane pushover...FACT if you cant get that then we can agree to disagree.
you saw the outcome of skylar FINDING OUT THE TRUTH. the lies and everything that led up to that moment were just as damaging to the relationship then what he was actually doing. as you can see she doesnt really have a problem with it now does she? however she had a problem with him lying at every chance he got (even when he didnt need to.) and miss me with the "heisenberg is selfish, walt isnt" talk, he is selfish and if you want to go that route i could say "walt is a !!, heisenberg isnt", see how that works? he's been selfish pretty much throughout the whole show.
skylar didnt care about walt felt? to me its the other way around. and once again him wanting to make sure his family was set was SECONDARY, he has proven that time and time again. he saw this as an opportunity to finally live (his words) and "break bad". he had a chance to get out the game when his family was set, if thats what it was all about his family why didnt he get out? because he didnt want to...because he was selfish and it wasnt about his family to begin with, its clear as day
