The Walter White freight train continues to damage everything in its path, though it had a serious run-in with another locomotive (Skyler) in 'Fifty-One.' Skyler made it pretty clear that, in sending the kids away to Hank's house, she's only buying time, waiting for Walt's eventual demise. Something tells me that struck a chord with Walt; not being able to control Skyler (or anyone for that matter) is something that will drive him crazy. This will only feed into his delusional state and he'll go to even greater lengths to keep such inferior souls in check.
Walt truly is operating on borrowed time - we know that he'll survive another year thanks to that flash forward in the Season 5 premiere (breaking ... bacon into a '52'), but how much longer after that? Looking back at that intro scene, it ominously excluded both Skyler and Walt Junior, so one has to wonder if they'll be offered up at collateral damage at some point in the near future.
