In the scene where Cobb gets freaked out and runs into the bathroom to wash his face, there's a window a few feet further away with drapes blowing in the wind. I might be wrong, but before Saito comes into the room to see if he's alright, I can see the outline of Mal sitting on the windowsill behind the drapes.

Did anyone else catch this, or am I just imagining it? If she really is there, would that explain that Dom is in a dream the entire time?

I saw her too, maybe he was remembering his dream, but then again when he was spinning his totem we never see the outcome since Saito interrupts. good observation

After rewatching this I think that Cobb was only visualizing a memory because you never see both Cobb and the window with the drapes in the same shot. I am on the side of the ending being real, but it is interesting rewatching it again thinking that he could still be one dream down in the end.

Cobb tends to have memory flashbacks even while awake so I don't think that's meant to indicate he's still in a dream at that point. He does screw up the spinning top at that point, but I think he uses it again in a later scene.

If you look at his hand (right) whenever he's dreaming (Cobb) he's wearing his wedding ring. Whenever he's awake, it isn't there.
