The final episode of Breaking Bad aired on AMC nearly nine years ago, however, that doesn't stop fans still talking about the hit TV show to this very day.

One of the main characters in the show is Walter White's wife, Skyler White, played by Anna Gunn, and many fans were extremely critical of the character throughout the shows duration - most likely due to the fact she pretty much got in Walt's way as his drug empire took off.

The American actor even spoke of the difficulty she had playing Skyler after the show had concluded in 2013, saying to the New York Times there was often social media pages devoted to hating her character and her character "has become a flash point for many people’s feelings about strong, non-submissive, ill-treated women."

But now, a decade on, it seems as if fans have decided giving Skyler another chance and have been sharing some of her most iconic lines on TikTok.

Take a look below:

Right now, there is a particular scene from Breaking Bad that is doing the rounds from episode two of series one - titled 'Cat's In The Bag'.

This particular episode is considered a rather important one in the build up of the series as it sees Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) and Walter's (Bryan Cranston) criminal partnership in the world of methamphetamine start to blossom... much to the suspicion of Skyler, who thinks Jesse is simply selling her husband marijuana.

The audio that's doing the rounds is from an extended conversation between characters Jesse and Skyler, when she confronts Jesse for 'selling weed' to Walt.

The sound was originally posted in February by TikTok user @mineralsmarie, in a video showcasing the 'best moments' from Breaking Bad.

But the iconic conversation has started to appear on the social media platform again this month in a whole new context.

Influencers are now isolating the 'do not sell marijuana to my husband' line and applying it to awkward conversations about sex, identity and relationships.

That line is responded to by a simple 'ok', as is said by a sheepish Jesse in the show.

One viral TikTok video said: "2000's moms be like: you're ONLY allowed to shave your legs, NOT your thighs," the camera is then turned to a caption reading '5th grade girls'.

Someone has even edited the famous 'my name is Skyler White yo' scene into a Google Form in a very clever way.

However, the general consensus from fans in the comments on these TikTok videos is that Skyler's character was unfairly slammed throughout the duration of Breaking Bad and that in reality, she had it pretty tough while her husband became a drug lord.

One read: "Maturing is realizing that Skyler White solos your fav verse," while a second added: "Skyler is lowkey funny."

It looks like we've all have a bit of maturing to do around here...
