I really thought at the time, and I still do, that she was seeing a ghost. She thinks he's dead, for whatever reason. New identity from Saul's guy, faked death, all plausible. The fake identity keeps eating at me though...why use Skylar's maiden name? I'm not buying that whole take-on-personality-traits-of-the-people-you-kill conspiracy theory, but it is intriguing.
