BB is on Sunday nights around the time I'm preparing dinner. So while I've heard
probably 3 1/2 season's worth of the show, I've only ever seen perhaps 3 1/2 minutes of it.
Just from a story perspective, there has to be some permanent corruption of Walt. There really isn't anything he's done so far that can't be walked away from (not morally, of course.... which I think is the whole point in having the cancer relapse). This corruption can be accomplished in a number of ways, but the one that I think is perhaps most interesting - given the way the character arcs have played out - would be for Skylar to end up 'breaking bad' herself. Yes, she's pretty well vested in The Business at this stage, but she hasn't really shown herself to be anything worse than a petty money grubber. What would really exhibit debasement - and therefore underscore the extent of Walt's evil - is if she did something not even Walt would do. Like...... kill a family member to protect the goods.
Ultimately, I think Walt meets his end at Jesse's hand. I just don't see how the character can pay off without dying.

Don't forget, Jesse was supposed to be offed at the end of Season 1. He's definitely still around for a reason. (see above for my guess)
