Did Walter kill Phyllis?

Did Walter kill Phyllis?

When Walter arrived to Phyllis' residence, she shot him. He shot her to death and then drove to the insurance company to record his confession. The police later found evidence that proved that he killed Phyllis.

He was put on trial for her murder and was found guilty. During the sentencing phase of the trial, the jury heard testimony from several witnesses who expressed their opinions that Walter was not responsible for Phyllis' death. The jury rejected these arguments and sentenced him to die in the electric chair.

After the trial, many people claimed that Walter killed Phyllis because she was going to leave him for another man. However, this allegation could not be proven true as such things are simply unknown now that he is dead.

How did Phyllis’s husband die?

Phyllis told Walter about her violent husband at his flat, so Walter agreed to kill Dietrichson. Walter duped Dietrichson into signing the accident insurance policy, which guaranteed Dietrichson's life for $50,000--a sum that would be quadrupled if he was killed in a railway accident. When Dietrichson failed to appear at the accident site, Phyllis filed for divorce.

Phyllis then married Mr. Dainsen to avoid having to pay alimony. But she soon realized that she had made a mistake and wanted out of the marriage. She asked Walter to help her end it but he refused because he needed her money. Filled with revenge, he arranged for her husband to fall off the roof and into the path of a oncoming train.

When Phyllis found out what had happened, she was heartbroken. However, she had no choice but to file for divorce again. This time she went to court and won custody of her daughter. A few months later, she met and fell in love with Charles Gittes and moved away with her child. Walter followed them and tried to shoot Gittes several times, but all his attempts were thwarted by Gittes' friends. Frustrated, Walter shot himself in the foot instead. Later on, when Phyllis learned that her former husband had been killed, she returned home victorious.

Why does Phyllis kill her husband in "Double Indemnity"?

Phyllis contemplates murdering her husband in order to collect the money of an accident insurance policy, and Walter devises a plan to collect twice the amount due to a double indemnity provision. When Mr. Dietrichson was discovered dead on a railroad track, the police regarded the cause of death as accidental. Therefore, he did not qualify for a large life insurance policy that Mrs. Dietrichson had taken out shortly before his death.

Under California law at the time, if your spouse was the owner of a life insurance company, you could collect the entire amount of the policy without paying any taxes on it. Tax laws have changed since then, but under current law, if Phyllis were to collect today she would have to pay income tax on the money.

The story takes place in Los Angeles in December 1939. Phyllis and Walter move into a new house that she has just bought. She is happy with this new start in her life but soon realizes that something is wrong with her husband. He spends all their money on bad investments and disappears one night after another big game of poker. When he fails to return home, Phyllis calls the police who think that he has probably gone back to his old ways and let him go.

Why did Walter kill Jane?

Jane began vomiting and choking, and Walter murdered her by doing nothing to aid (he could have easily saved her). According to the Breaking Bad wiki, in the original screenplay, Walter was going to break into Jesse's apartment and intentionally kill Jane by injecting her with an additional amount of heroin. This would have made her overdose and save Hank at a very low chance of survival.

However, this scene was cut from the final episode, so apparently it was not important for the story that he killed her. But since he did kill her, we can assume that it was because she knew about his drug business and wanted him out of her life.

Also, according to the creator of Walter White, Vince Gilligan, in an interview with Rolling Stone, Walter killed Jane because she was becoming a liability to him. He said that even though they were divorced, she still had access to his house and would find out what he was up to which would hurt his image as a good father.

So, there you have it: Walter killed Jane because she was becoming a problem for him and because she might have told others about his activities. He did not do it out of malice or revenge; instead, he did it to protect himself.
