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.
I wasn't directing it towards you. There are a lot of people around the internet that direct general misogyny towards Skylar, though.
