**Probably. After all, gambling is usually considered a far less offensive/morally reprehensible sin than the production and distribution of crystal meth, and I think Hank would have seen it that way too, even if he had to swallow his pride for the time being. It seemed Marie had little doubt Hank would take it as well. She just didn't want the drama at the moment.

[[folder:Would Hank have accepted the therapy money?]]
* Considering that Marie kept (what she perceived as) the truth a secret from Hank, I wonder if Hank would have resisted taking Walt's "gambling" money from Walt if Skyler had asked him instead of Marie. It's unclear whether Hank would have caved or not, given this out-of-network therapy was what got him walking again.
**Furthermore, when Walt asked why the gambling story had to be kept secret from Hank, Skyler reminded Walt about turning down Gretchen and Elliott's "charity" for his cancer bills due to ego issues. So would Hank's ego have him similarly at fault, in comparison to Walt, if he were told and turned down the money? And as disgusted and angry as Hank was at finding out Walt was Heisenberg, and that he received Walt's money for therapy, is there a part of him that realizes he probably wouldn't be walking if it weren't for that drug money (it probably wouldn't change his new views of Walt, but still)?

** Because that would have killed the tension if Jesse goes "no shit" before he says Jane died. He already knows Walt killed Mike he just doesn't care at this point since he wants out and they were at each other's throat all the time. If Walt is alive and call hit on every Poolos Hermanos then Mike is dead in Jesse's perspective.

[[folder:"I watched Jane die, and I killed Mike."]]
*Telling Jesse that he watched Jane die, could have saved her, but didn't, was the worst thing Walt could say to him. But why didn't he twist the knife further, and start off by telling Jesse that he killed Mike, ''then'' admit to not doing anything while Jane choked to death?

** Marie did know all of that because Hank told her [[spoiler: everything he had figured out, and brought up in his confrontation with Walt in "Blood Money".]]

*** B.) When the cops got a copy of Walter's faux confession speech (which Skyler would've doubtlessly confirmed was bullshit), they would have an almost complete map of the Gus Fring/Walter fiasco. Remember, the video that was stolen from Hank's house by the Aryans was Jesse's confession video, not Walt's faux "confession" that was intended to implicate Hank as Heisenberg. So the cops do have that entire faux-confession in their hands. Not only that, but he confesses to killing Gus in the video.

*** E.) At some point in time, Badger, Skinny Pete, and Jesse's other friends would've been hauled in and questioned by both local police and the Feds. Badger knew Walt was Heisenberg, considering his being questioned by police when he got arrested in Saul's introductory episode.

** He is a septuagenarian who had to abandon his granddaughter to escape the police, they don't need a wire mole since they know he is behind it and won't meet Dan for no reason (Dan probably told them that Mike and him were done and wouldn't have believe he needs to meet him a week later) just a few cop to arrest him since he won't open fire in a park. Mike is still an old man not a supreme commando if he wasn't lucky and willing to go outside his character he would have been arrested.

[[folder:Catching Mike at the park]]
* I keep thinking, Hank could've done better with trying to grab Mike at the park, couldn't he? I mean, why did he have the local police stake out the park, when as ASAC he has the authority to send a few DEA agents there who know what Mike looks like? Furthermore, why not do something similar to what Hank does with Jesse later, and have Dan Waschberger meet with Mike while wearing a wire?

* So when Hank is staking out Jesse's house, waiting for Jesse to lead him to the RV, he calls Walt to ask if he remember Jesse had a RV. Walt has the RV moved to the junkyard, and shortly after Jesse, hearing what's happened, sprints out to his car and drives off in a hurry. And this causes Hank to follow Jesse right to the RV. Walt then uses his diversion with the phone call from Saul's secretary to send Hank away on a wild goose chase while the RV is destroyed. From the dialogue while he's beating Jesse senseless, it's pretty clear Hank realized right away that Jesse had an accomplice make the phone call, and this accomplice knows Hank's cell phone number. Even though Walt technically did not speak to Jesse, wouldn't Hank (had his anger not clouded his judgment) have been at least a little suspicious of Walt due to the timing of the events, and the fact this accomplice knew Marie's name and Hank's phone number? I mean, yes, at this stage, Hank still sees Walt as the last guy he could possibly conceive as a meth cook, but still....

** Easy to disprove or the best fake alibi ever? "Oh look, guy who just recovered and spent most of his days off spying on Fring (he even had his brother in-law helping with the stake out as the car accident prove) suddenly get a threat call so he must be under surveillance and get the visit of Hector Salamanca who apparently just wanted to insult him and not just signal that he received his package. Good thing we were watching on him while his coward brother in-law was away not following his bidding I hope otherwise we might think he was linked to this".
