Now that I've finally watched the final two episodes, some comments:
We don't know what Nacho put in Hector's pills. But we do know that Nacho told his papa that "this will all be over in a few weeks". That tells me he wasn't simply hoping that what was essentially a placebo in Hector's pills would kill him quickly. Seems like Nacho expected a more certain, quick demise from Hector. Meaning, there was something in the pills that would have triggered a heart attack.
Hector's future symptoms are more emblematic of a stroke. His heart condition could have brought one on, including probably, the incident he just had. I'm guessing this is how he ends up in the chair.
And I agree with Brother Tack from couple of pages ago about Gus wanting to keep Hector alive until he was ready to kill Hector himself. Probably because even back then he was hoping to kill both Hector and Don Elardio simultaneously at some point down the road. After all, both of them were present when Gus's partner (and possible/probable lover) was killed at Elardio's hacienda, in front of Gus. Remember the scene from BB where Gus fell down on the ground sobbing immediately afterward, the camera turning on it's side to capture his face in full? That shot was later repeated with Walt after Hank was killed in front of Walt out in the desert in one of the final BB episodes ("Ozymandias"?). Walt got his revenge. Gus intends to get his.
As to Chuck's electrical meter continuing to run, it would not have been had Chuck flipped all the breakers off. So that leaves two possibilities: 1) There was some kind of electrical device between the incoming service at the meter and the breaker boxes. Can't imagine what that would be (and Mike didn't plant anything; he was only there to take pictures of the house interior for Jimmy). Or, 2) Chuck was simply imagining the meter wheel turning in his disoriented, near suicidal state.
Finally, loved the comment from Lydia when she was talking to Mike in her office. She said something along the lines of: "If you think Gustavio Fring is just a drug dealer, you don't know him." It's always been my theory that Gus was formerly one of Pinochet's Chilean strongmen, perhaps one of his generals, who had fled to the U.S. and adopted this new identity. I really hope someday Vince will fill out his backstory. 'Cause that would be freaking awesome.
