Hmmm, maybe - but mainly speculation, isn't it?
Speculation aside, the post reveals several details from that episode which are part of the plot.Spoiler:
If I hadn't seen the episode yet, I'd be really upset at knowing that they do the big confrontation so soon. Part of what made the end of that episode so good was they teased you into thinking they would drag that aspect out like so many other shows would have. But instead they get it out of the way with one of the best acted scenes of the show to date.
