GET TO KNOW ME MEME: 1/5 female characters » Skyler White
"As an actress, I realize that viewers are entitled to have whatever feelings they want about the characters they watch. 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? But I finally realized that most people’s hatred of Skyler had little to do with me and a lot to do with their own perception of women and wives. Because Skyler didn’t conform to a comfortable ideal of the archetypical female, she had become a kind of Rorschach test for society, a measure of our attitudes toward gender.” -Anna Gunn
“In “Heart,” passion for work—a case against an insurance company that is trying to deny an expectant mother a surgery—translates into the other kind of passion, as Will finally kisses Alicia, after months of seeming just about to. Alicia’s attack of conscience plays out beautifully and bittersweetly, and the two spend the rest of the episode searching for each other and never quite syncing up. The next day, Will says to her: “We’ve always had bad timing.*” It is a pronouncement that rings true for the rest of the series.” (x)

That’s all. This is, as they say, the darkest timeline. Everywhere else, nay, “everywhen” else — us in the Civil War, us in Ancient Egypt, us in the swinging ’60s — we are happy.
If this theory holds, well, by the law of averages, there had to be one universe — just this one — where we don’t end up together. Here and now just happens to be it. If you think of it this way, nothing is our fault.
Because you could have loved me forever. And maybe in another universe, I let you. (x)
Too great oppression for a tender thing.
