Not in the sense that she was [[Put On A Bus]]. My theory is that after she lied about having sex with Malcom, the news of the false rumor spreads to Julie's attention. Whom may or may not still hold a grudge against Malcolm from that trash incident. Julie at first believes the rumor considering that kids normally do this. But as the clues begin to debunk it as a fluke, she begins to contemplate revenge against both. This goes horribly wrong when Julie fails to attract the attention of Malcolm while accidentally sending Cynthia away. Right now, the very last area investigators searched in was the local dump. To which is a dead end for the rest of the series.

[[WMG: Lois' obsession with being right stems from her upbringing.]]
We've seen in other episodes (the one with the burnt dress springs to mind first, but many others exist) where she was completely wrong but refused to accept (in some episodes, even when confronted with proof otherwise, such as the one where the cop stops her for blocking another car) that her first assumption was correct. When she was a child, Ida almost definitely tormented her any time Lois spoke back or even contradicted what her mother said. Lois held it back, convinced that she was right, and never intentionally told a lie to keep from ever being wrong. Eventually, this changed to a believe that she was incapable of being wrong, especially when she got married to a guy who always agreed with her and had four kids that she attempted to rule with absolute authority.



Laugh if you must at this absurd theory's title, but if you really think about it, nearly everything Lois says, acts, and thinks throughout the entire series is nearly similar to what nearly every African-American motherly character in the entirety of American television history (From ''LifeWithBeula'' an actual early 1950s SitCom starring HattieMcDaniel, to Rochelle of ''Series/EverybodyHatesChris''). She does this so her sons will have a better life and not end up as criminals. However when you really start looking at Lois's behavior and thought process this get a little... wonky.

[[WMG: Malcolm and possibly Dewey (but he has fewer problems communicating) have [[HollywoodAutism Asperger's syndrome]], and it comes from Lois' side of the family. Reese and Dewey and Jamie have some sort of hyperactivity.]]
May sound like something that just popped into a boring fan's mind, but, even though I can't go into detail (it would be too personal...) I'm speaking from experience...
* Also in the episode where Dewey's friend from the emotionally disturbed class spent the night, Hal said he went and looked for any mistake at all in the dictionary so Reese, Dewey & Jamie might have gotten it from him.
** Actually, Hal filled in all the holes in the letters of the encyclopedia (colouring in the one hole in the P's, the two holes in the B's, etc.) When Dewey asks him how crazy he really is, he tells him he's on his third set of encyclopedias. It kind of gives you some creepy insight into what Hal's really like on the inside...

[[WMG:Jamie is autistic.]]
We know he takes a long time to start talking, which is a common sign of autism. Furthermore, Lois was over 40 when she had him, and at that age, the probability of a child being autistic is rather high.
* Sometimes, kids just don't want to talk. This troper knew a girl that didn't have autism or anything, but didn't talk until she was seven years old.



[[WMG: Malcolm will end up creating ComicBook/TheJoker in Film/TheDarkKnight.]]
Or, rather, ComicBook/TheJoker will come into being out of various aspects of the Wilkerson brothers' psyches. The brothers tried a magick ritual one Halloween night to play the mother of all pranks on Lois and Hal, and, being the short-sighted idiots they were, accidently pissed off some force on the other side that killed them and used their souls to build a monster. Reese's sadism, Malcolm's intelligence, Francis' determination to rebel, and Dewey's artistic tendencies, all rolled into the most evil motherfucker on God's green earth, determined to do what the boys did best: Upset the natural order and create chaos.

In Season 2 of ''Breaking Bad'', Walt pretends to visit his mother, after some convincing from Skylar. Walt is unsure at first, as he has an estranged relationship with his mother. If you watch [=MitM=], it's pretty clear that Malcolm and Lois have an estranged relationship, and perhaps this carried on as Malcolm / Walt entered adulthood. The main 'debunker' is obviously the name. Why would Malcolm change his name? Well, firstly, we never find out Malcolm and his family's surname in [=MitM=], so for all we know it could well be White, which would then only mean he would have to change his first name.

[[WMG: Malcolm grows up to become Walt from Breaking Bad]]
Walter White is clearly a genius, both in the subject of science and in many other areas. Malcolm, with an IQ of 165, is too something of a genius. When we meet Walt in the first episode of Breaking Bad, he is a high school chemistry teacher. Malcolm obviously had an interest in chemistry, as we see in a flashback scene where Malcolm causes the house to fill with smoke whilst playing with a chemistry set, as a young child. In season two of Breaking Bad, Walt pretends to visit his mother, after some convincing from Skylar. Walt is unsure at first, as he has an estranged relationship with his mother. If you watch MitM, it's pretty clear that Malcolm and Lois have an estranged relationship, and perhaps this carried on as Malcolm / Walt entered adulthood. The main 'debunker' is obviously the name. Why would Malcolm change his name? Well, firstly, we never find out Malcolm and his family's surname in MitM, so for all we know it could well be White, which would then only mean he would have to change his first name. The only possible explanation I can think of is that this stems from his rebellious behaviour as a child. With grown up Malcolm and Lois no longer speaking, and Malcolm somewhat bitter, he may well have changed his first name as an act of defiance against his mother. Why would Malcolm choose Walt? Well, what's interesting is that in the MitM episode Family Reunion, we are introduced to Hal's family, and his father, whose name happens to be... Walter! So Malcolm renamed himself after his deceased Grandfather. Next, Walt enjoys making his millions from the meth business, and will stop at nothing to carry on his empire. Lois' plans for Malcolm to become president had obviously fallen through, and Malcolm / Walt had ended up in a crappy job with a crappy house, which made him bitter, and gave him the ruthless nature needed to do what he does. Of course there's the issue with the underpants - grown up Malcolm has clearly inherited Hal's love of walking around in his whites. Plus, it's only natural that Malcolm would grow up looking somewhat like Hal.

Lois is obsessed with having a child be the closest thing that Earth has to the Iron Throne, after all. Also, let's be honest: Christopher Kennedy Masterson in the 2000s was a dead ringer for Jack Gleeson in the 2010's.

[[WMG: Francis is mildly schizophrenic.]]
Even early in the series, he generally acts like a pretty decent guy who just happens to be a bit of a slacker, especially when it comes to following orders. Usually when he is acting out, he's got a real "crazy conspiracy theorist hobo character" vibe, which provides distinct contrast when compared to his normal self, considering he was originally the most responsible of all four kids and ''any'' of the people with which he was associated in their hometown and was the OnlySaneMan through a lot of the Alaska episodes. It could fit with the appearance of his actions in the flashbacks to when he was a small child and drove Lois to dumping him with her mom.



[[WMG: Most of Malcolm's family is schizophrenic.]]
See above for Francis. For Dewey and Reese, they openly admitted to each other that they hear voices when nobody is around. Hal hallucinates ''all the time'' - both visual and auditory. Malcolm could go either way - one wonders if the self-narration might be to some entity he's hallucinating - either way he often acts unjustly paranoid. The severity of the symptoms vary (they all confirm to Type I/paranoid schizophrenia, though), but judging from the behavior Hal and Reese have the worst of it, while Malcolm, Dewey, and Francis have more mild symptoms. The latter three seem to have mostly moved into the third phase, while Hal and Reese remain fairly acute.

Laugh if you must at this theory's title but really think about it, nearly everything Lois says, acts, and thinks throughout the entire series is nearly similar to what nearly every African-American motherly character in the entirety of American television history (From Life With Beula an actual early 1950s SitCom starring Hattie [=McDaniel=] to EverybodyHatesChris). She does this so her sons will have a better life and not end up as criminals. However when you really start looking at Lois's behavior and thought process this get a little..wonky.
