"We have the money," Skyler tells Marie, then turns to Walt and says, "No more gambling." Does she really believe it when Walt nods? Does it matter when you can just tell a story in which he does? Marie, ever my hero, gets to the point and asks how much money. Walt, gobsmacked, can only say it's in the seven figures. Even Skyler takes a moment to process that. "What can I say? I did very well." says Walt, finally able to --if only mildly -- take some pride in his accomplishments with his family. "You will take our money," Skyler insists. "Use it to take care of Hank."
After Marie agrees, Skyler asks her not to tell Flynn about it. Or Hank. Marie says she needs to process it all and takes off. When she's gone, Walt asks how Skyler came up with all that. Skyler turns and shrugs, "I learned from the best." I like that. She's not letting him entirely off the hook. She goes further: "Something tells me Hank is here because of you. And I'm not forgetting that."
In Walt's defense, neither is he.
