Now that ‘Breaking Bad’s’ final eight episodes have begun airing, many fans are constructing their own theories on how the series will end. While some may seem cray-cray, one particular theory, however, has the hairs on the back of our necks standing straight up.
Following the mind-blowing season premiere on August 11, we began sifting through multiple theories on how Breaking Bad may come to close in September. And one particular theory really got our hearts racing. Is it possible that Walter White (Bryan Cranston) may end up killing his wife, Skyler (Anna Gunn), by the end of the series?
Walt Kills Skyler? — ‘Breaking Bad’ Final Season Spoilers & Finale Theories
Here is the frightening theory, which was posted on the Straight Dope message board:
In Breaking Bad, Walt has a habit of taking on some little traits of the people he has killed.
When Walt killed Crazy 8, he started cutting off the crusts of his sandwiches – just as Crazy 8 had done. Gus drives a Volvo. After Walt kills Gus, at the beginning of Season 5 (at the Denny’s), Walt is driving a Volvo (w/ NH plates). When Mike and Walt meet at a bar in an earlier season, Walt orders his drink neat while Mike has his on the rocks. After Mike is killed, and Hank offers Walt a drink in his office – he asks for it on the rocks.
At that same scene at Denny’s, Walt arranges his bacon into his new age. Someone else used to do that. On top of that, he’s using Skyler’s maiden name on his fake ID.
Based on his history of picking up traits from his victims – I believe Walt is going to murder Skyler before the series is over, and it probably had already happened before he showed up at the Denny’s in the Season 5 cold open.

We may have to wait a bit to find out if this theory comes to fruition, but if the pace of the season premiere is any indication, this potential scenario could go down as early as next week!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Could Walt really kill Skyler? Is this just another conspiracy theory? How do YOU think the series will come to an end? Let us know!
