Both.

Hank does not know that Walter and Sylar paid his medical bills but his wife knows and they used the car wash and the blackjack money to explain the money to her. Hank just knows about the car wash.

I think the third option. His ego is in play. Drop the hints, flaunt and still have Hank running in circles.

How ironic that they went with an extremely complex plan to avoid killing potential witnesses (train engineer and conductor), then "had" to kill an innocent boy who became an eyewitness...

They went to that much trouble to hide the fact that a crime had been committed, and keep the heat off completely. I think the kid could have been dealt with without killing him, and I think even Mike has qualms about killing kids.

But let us not forget, all three main characters are multiple murderers, distributor/manufacturers of methamphetamine, and generaly people you would be lucky never to meet. Walt was once a "good guy", but he may be the worst because he voluntarily decided to pursue meth manufacturing and is trying to manipulate the others.

Both Walt and Jesse were upset with Todd pulling the gun out and just shooting the kid. Maybe in the long run, Jesse and Mike would be more upset than Walt, who was okay with poisoning a little boy.

I thought it was a cover for paying Hank's medical bills. ??

I find it very hard to believe that Hank doesn't know that Walt and Skylar were paying his medical bills. Where does he think all that money came from? Insurance? He's a detective, he's smarter than that to just take Marie's word for it.

He thinks his insurance covered all the costs which it would have, just not to the level of good care that he got. I don't find that hard to believe at all.

I think the precise number was something like 906 and Walt rounded up to an even 920.

The gambling excuse came up in S2 and S3. The car wash purchase wasn't even contemplated until S4. I think the gambling excuse was still used to explain how they had the money to purchase the car wash, but the car wash was not the original reason for the gambling cover.

Hank had insurance through the DEA. He thought it covered everything.

Why wouldn't he think the insurance covered it? He had no idea it was a point of contention.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure Marie told him work was covering everything. And I'm sure Hank doesn't want to think about it. He definitely seems like the type to compartmentalize.

I don't even think it's him not wanting to think about it, it's just him not thinking about it. In my house I handle all the insurance and bill paying. My husband would have zero clue about something like this.

Surfing around Youtube, I found this 31 minute "Breaking Bad Behind the Scenes" video. It's from Season 2, so it's pretty dated, but it does have lots of interesting background info.

I don't like looking at the previews for the next show but
Spoiler:
I'm guessing the hand being buried in the dirt for next weeks show was Todds. He fits Mikes definition of a loose cannon and I don't even think Mike would have shot the kid.

Concerning next week...

Spoiler:
I think they keep Todd to replace Mike. Clearly he has some street smarts and has no qualms about killing people. Besides just being a helping hand, something tells me that Todd knows a lot more about the meth/drug market/scene than they think.

I'd guess the hand is Lydia's.

I unspoiled this excerpted quote because it isn't a spoiler.

I'm not getting that impression about Todd. He works for the fumigation company and is a thief. And now we have seen that he carries a concealed weapon and has no qualms about murdering a child without warning. I see him as a gangster/thug who wants to be part of a ruthless gang of criminals. But we haven't seen any foreknowledge of the drug business. Walt brought him in on this caper as a labourer in a train robbery. I was surprised at how much was revealed to him. It should have only been on a "need to know" basis.

Until Todd killed the boy, I was thinking he might be an undercover agent.

Some people get their panties in a bunch about talking about what might happen in future episodes. I don't, but I've been chastised at for not spoilerizing such talk in the past.
