comment in Skyfall opening scene on train, does Bond fake getting shot?
@Oliver_C Upon close review, I don't think it's clear that those screenshots show a second wound. Just seems like first wound's blood spreading. And the Bond figure in the musical sequence clearly has just one wound.

comment in Skyfall opening scene on train, does Bond fake getting shot?
@Kyralessa my thought on that was Bond was so angry at M that he was like "forget this, I'm not helping you anymore." But it ends up being a moot point for me, as I have come to believe the recent bulletproof-vest answer.

Much of that scene included shots of Bond looking at himself in the mirror -- hence the opposite-side orientation.

comment In Skyfall, was the bar scene a daydream or was it real?
I thought the most interesting part of Skyfall was the MI6 psyche profile of Bond confirmed he is an alcoholic with major psychological issues. This coupled with the drinking scene plus the talk of his orphan childhood suggests that underneath the super-cool surface, he is a tortured soul.
