Like I said, I was just taking a guess. Walt might use the ricin against somebody else but I think it really depends on what happens between now and then. If there is literally nothing left for Walt to live for and he realizes that it is all because of the things that he has done, he may choose to go out on his own terms by using the ricin. I really hope he uses it on Lydia though.
Also, no way does Todd die in the shootout.
At this point, everybody but Walt is on the chopping block. Todd is no exception. If Todd is dead, that leaves his uncle with no other options but to force Walt to cook for him, especially since he went to the desert to kill Jesse for him. It won't matter the circumstances behind what happened, in the crazy mind of a guy like Todd's uncle, Walt owes him now.
Hank, it was pretty clearly foreshadowed he's a goner, I think. Saying goodbye to his wife on the phone and saying he wouldn't be home for a good long while yet to her..
I think it's possible that Hank will be gravely injured and if Jesse escapes, he could take Hank with him. Hank could then end up in a coma, leaving the possibility of his recovery up to the imagination of the viewer at the end of the series.
