Breaking Bad is back!
You can pour over all the scheming and darkness with EW’s recap — and Ken Tucker’s review — but there’s another matter we want to discuss here in PopWatch: Are the wives on AMC shows just the worst people ever? Skyler got us thinking so last night.
Sure, you can argue Skyler is doing the best she can (her husband did just murder someone, after all). But her dealings with Ted last season were not the best.
You’ve also got Lori on The Walking Dead, and her affair with Shane. Of course, Betty Draper on Mad Men is certainly no dream. Although Don was less than an ideal husband (understatement of the year), Betty is a child with little interest in her own children. For argument’s sake, let’s also throw Sarah Linden from The Killing into the mix. Yes, yes, she’s not technically married, but she’s got to be in this poll for being the world’s most MIA fiancé last season — Rosie killer on the loose or not.
Mirror, mirror on the wall: Who’s the worst wife of them all?
