Beautiful. I loved that episode. One of my favorites of the show.

I suspect next season will have little to no Megan, Ted or Bob Benson, which is a good thing. There's just too many characters to effectively service and this season was way too light on Joan, Ginsberg, Stan and Sally.
Benson & Ginsberg will be together in Detroit

Really, really enjoyed this episode. Satisfying finale that opened a ton of doors for the future. It has me really excited about next season which will be very different. The Hersheys "pitch" was the best presentation in the last two seasons. Just a great scene. I don't know if this season was 'weaker' than most, I just think it was kind of deliberately frustrating and less satisfying just because of where the characters (Don specifically) were at. I could see how having a stubborn protagonist who struggles to not fall into the same traps can be somewhat less satisfying for the viewer, in the big picture it makes for a stronger, more honest story.

- Anyone else notice that the song playing in the bar where Don was sitting alone was the same song playing in the opening scene of the series. Thought that was a pretty cool callback.

- Bob Benson keeps getting better and better.

- Did Bob have Pete's mom wacked? (fenikz's question which I just stole)

- Poor Don. Finally tried to do right and get his life back together and everything falls apart. Guess that's just the Mad Men way.


It's gonna be a tough 9 month wait. Episodes like this make me realize how much I'm gonna miss this show in the end but I'm so stoked about this last season. It's really a wildcard season where just about anything could happen.

**** YOU, AMC! I want ******* closure, not a dragged out conclusion.

A whole year in between is just obnoxious (even though BB did it).

Happy 50th anniversary of Duck Phillips taking a **** on a chair in the SCDP offices.

That night's Liston vs. Clay fight was 50 years ago today.

Might have to cram in a few of the my favorite episodes from the later seasons before tonight's show to get me caught up/hyped up. The Suitcase, Far Away Places, maybe season 5 and 6 finales.

This last season really could go in any direction. Should be good.

Maybe I'm just romanticizing things because it's been ages since I've seen the show, but I thought that episode was classic Mad Men - the type of episode that made me love the show in its first several seasons. The last few seasons have had good moments, but it wasn't as consistently great as it had been in the past. If this season keeps up with what they did with Episode 1 though, Mad Men is definitely going out on a high note. Loved this ep.

I might be most interested in Joan's plight right now.
