Lots of new stylistic stuff in the most recent episode. Besides the voiceover there was the Stones song, the alcohol craving zoom effect, swimming motif, etc.
Agree on the voiceovers, but I doubt it's a technique that Weiner et. al. carry over.
The swimming thing was pretty obvious (but still effective), water as rebirth/cleansing.
