I don't know if you directed this towards me, but I actually like the Skyler character being on the show. Stories need to have a character balance in order to work. Let's say that they wrote Skyler out in the episode when she gave birth to their daughter, (death due to labor complications), the story line would be a mess.
They're playing up her character to be a secondary threat to Walt's success and life. Which is the exact opposite of how her character was portrayed in the last season. The writers are changing shit up and that's what keeps things interesting.
