Mrs. Pope is a counselor for group therapy sessions.
During a group session, Walter, Skyler, and Walter White, Jr. all attended. Both Skyler and Walt Jr. expressed their feelings about Walt constantly leaving and not telling either of them where he was going. Mrs. Pope then asked Walt if he was hiding anything from his family, and if so, then now was the time to share. Walt simply replied that he liked to be alone sometimes. She said that it was fine to be alone, but that maybe it would be best to tell his family what he did during alone time so they could accept it easier. Walt proceeded to describe what he enjoyed doing, which included going for walks and taking in the nature, which was in reality the desert scenes where he and Jesse Pinkman cooked.
