Can someone explain to me why Skyler can never tell Walt Jr. that his father never killed his uncle? I don't understood this.
Edit: I didn't read this page before replying. I don't know that I buy the explanations, though. I guess we're just assuming that Walt Jr. told Skyler all about his conversation with Walt and what he told Walt? I don't really think it would be a terrible thing if Skyler just told Walt Jr. the truth as she knows it.
ah but it does feel weird writing it that way doesn't it.
Walt killed Hank and that's that, no reason for believing otherwise.
I think Hank's obsessiveness in wanting to catch Heisenberg at any cost is what led to his death.
I'm still planning to smack Anna Gunn in the mouth with dipping sticks.
Even though it will be a prequel, I expect there will be cameos in the BETTER CALL SAUL show.
If it goes on long enough, maybe they'll flash forward to post BB finale.
I still think they should leave it alone and abandon this "Better Call Saul" idea. Imagine if the Sopranos had a spin off series called "Crackin' Nuts" about Paulie Walnuts. Just let the sleeping dogs lie.

Todd's ringtone was the hardest I've ever laughed at this show
Killing implies intended someone's death. Walt never necessarily wanted Hank to die. I think it's completely clear that Walt wanted precisely the opposite of that. Hank was his best friend. If Walt wanted to kill Hank he'd have done it when he was on Gus' trail. He'd have done it when he knew he was on his own trail.
Creating a situation which eventually leads to someone's unintended death is not "killing".
EDIT: actual xanman brings up another point about Hank choosing to be out there all alone. If he had done his job properly he'd be alive whether Walt was caught or not.

But do you think that would be a comfort to Walter Jr. at all? "Uncle Hank died while trying to arrest your dad, but hey, guess what? Your dad didn't pull the trigger, he just made it out of the situation alive due to a bunch of people who killed Hank and stole your dad's money. Oh, and your dad was working with them. But your dad didn't kill them."
My condom broke and now you're pregnant. Oh hey it wasn't me, I didn't intend for that to happen.
Walt killed Hank when he decided to make that call, even if he didn't realize Hank was with Jesse in the car.
I wonder how much Skyler really knows anyway, Walt always kept everything close to the chest even when she started to seem like part of the team.
What's sad about how Walt Jr. reacted to everything is that he never really learned how to deal with these liars and manipulators. When Walt is yelling at Skyler on the phone she reads in his words what he is truly doing because she has adapted so much to this whirlpool of lies and has become a good liar herself. It goes to show how much they really were not a part of Walt Jr.'s life for the past two years, so wrapped up in their own problems and goals that he just became an afterthought. This is all amplified when compared to how much Walt has shown and taught Jesse over those two years.
Anyway, that kind of goes around the question but brings me to another point. Skyler could just keep most of the bad to herself and tell Walter Jr. enough for him to not hate his father anymore. When that 9 million comes, Walt Jr. may not be prepared to understand that it came from Walt but Skyler will certainly have her suspicions.
So what was the deal with scene where Jesse is making the wood box?
