Here's a quote on the Indoctrination theory - spoilers abound so read at your own risk:

The 'Indoctrination Theory' is a popular one among Mass Effect fans. The thesis is that, based on one super-short clip in ME3's perfect ending which showed Sheppard gasping to life amongst a pile of rubble, that the whole final sequence was a battle for Shepard's mind between the Reapers, who had been subtely indoctrinating him over the course of the last three games, and Shepard himself.

Moving on to Bitmob's editorial: http://bitmob.com/articles/

Eduardo Moutinho from Bitmob has this to say - in the conclusion:

Do I want closure? Of course. Do I want to learn the fate of my crew? Definitely. Do I want to build a house on Rannoch for Tali’Zorah where we could live happily ever after? You bet your bosh’tet I do. But we didn’t get that the first time, and I hope we don’t get that with this new content. The Indoctrination Theory is just that -- a theory. And it developed because some fans dug deeper into the story instead of digging into BioWare. The most iconic fictional franchises make you think -- sometimes through controversy. Mass Effect is part of that hallowed fraternity. I don’t want an update to take away the intrigue of the current finale or change its implied purpose. BioWare caved in from the pressure, and I’m worried that the ending, like Shepard, will be caught in the rubble -- or the rabble.
