Apr 14th 2014
20
                what was it she said when she refused to get in the passenger seat?
Apr 14th 2014
23
                i didn't catch it either.
Apr 14th 2014
24
                     It was something like "I can't move the seat"...
Apr 14th 2014
27
                          The line was, "I can't move the seat."
Apr 14th 2014
31
                               Word. So I nailed it. Haha.
Apr 15th 2014
37

Apr 15th 2014

Apr 14th 2014

That wasn't the "don't know why" I was referring to.
Apr 14th 2014
6

Apr 14th 2014
13
      they get to sell ad space for 2 seasons instead of 1.
Apr 14th 2014

Pete going native is like the best thing that's happened to him

Ken's depth-perception lost
Apr 14th 2014
11
so has Ken lost his eye forever?
Apr 14th 2014
15
The show picks up only 2 months after...
Apr 14th 2014
18
My hunch is that she's taking acid too
Apr 14th 2014
17
I can see it, though
Apr 15th 2014

I vote cult

Apr 14th 2014
22
were Pete and Bob fucking or what?
Apr 14th 2014
26
"NOT GOOD, BOB!"
Apr 14th 2014
28
      "NOT GREAT*, BOB!"
Apr 14th 2014
29
      i remember Bob coming on to Pete and Pete
Apr 14th 2014
30
           yeah they always kind of played it ambiguously like Pete was down
Apr 15th 2014
39
                I think saying they "always kinda played it..." that way...
Apr 15th 2014
40
                     you're probably right.
Apr 15th 2014
44
                     i'm just wondering what Bob will do now
Apr 15th 2014
45
                          Ha - actually, that answer provides further proof...
Apr 15th 2014
46
                          if not Bob then someone else.
Apr 15th 2014
47
                               Haha aight!
Apr 15th 2014
50
                                    yes, i get it. YOU didn't see what i saw.
Apr 15th 2014
52
                                         Whoa! Absolutely no need for the attitude.
Apr 16th 2014
59
                          I don't imagine Bob will be in this season very much
Apr 15th 2014
48
                               that's right.
Apr 15th 2014
51
                               yeah. i like about 60% of the episodes
Apr 15th 2014
56
                                    I was rooting for Michael J Fox to win that battle, Robin Williams
Apr 20th 2014
64

Apr 15th 2014
57

Apr 14th 2014
32

Apr 14th 2014
35

Apr 15th 2014
49

Apr 15th 2014
53
Nah, they didn't come out until the 70's

Apr 21st 2014
72
           i would love to see the reactions of watchers
Apr 21st 2014
75
                the thing is Bert could be playing the game
Apr 21st 2014
76
                I thought the exact same thing re: Bert
Apr 21st 2014
80
                     come to think of it it's not all that ambiguous
Apr 21st 2014
83
                          Word - but who's to say he even knows that Dawn *got* the promotion?
Apr 21st 2014
86

Apr 21st 2014
88
                               nah i'm not saying all that and sure it's racist

Apr 21st 2014
98
      Yep that's why I got lost
Apr 21st 2014
99
      Part of it is emotional and part is past performanc

May 06th 2014
260
           100% co-sign. It's what I was getting at re: Betty last episode
May 07th 2014
281
      i actually think this is his best spell as a character.
May 05th 2014
249
      It's a bit repetitve, but I'm not bored yet.
May 05th 2014
253
      yeah at some point he has to hit bottom and rebound
May 06th 2014
255
           he's already hit rock bottom though
May 06th 2014
256
                i thought he did at the end of last season
May 06th 2014
268
                     He's hit bottom twice.
May 07th 2014
279
                          exactly
May 08th 2014
286
L.O.L.
May 05th 2014
246
What do you think about the other characters?
May 05th 2014
251
...
May 05th 2014
254
yeah that was an incredible moment
May 06th 2014
261
you're catching flack for going against the grain, but i hear ya
May 06th 2014
264
not really concerned about what others might say
May 10th 2014
300
i'm hoping the end is a positive one for Don.
May 07th 2014
280
Don should have known better than go to Burt Cooper
May 05th 2014
237
Sent Don running out of his office with his shoes in his hands
May 06th 2014
258
      and IMMEDIATELY to the bottle.
May 12th 2014
319
Yo, this was a great episode
May 06th 2014
257
I was talking to my wife "he gone get fired!"
May 06th 2014
263
Right?
May 06th 2014
265
      That's how I was when he poured the vodka into the Coke can
May 06th 2014
266
      it's funny, Vodka literally mixes with every drink in the world but Coke
May 12th 2014
306
      got roaches, movin couches....
May 06th 2014
267
           I finally became Don Draper
May 06th 2014
269
                lol
May 06th 2014
270
                ha!
May 06th 2014
272
                Damn that's good
May 06th 2014
273
everyone's problem with Don is jealous resentment
May 06th 2014
274
exactly
May 07th 2014
275
See I've been hesitant to buy into that
May 07th 2014
276
      oh i completely agree
May 07th 2014
277
Also, Peggy resents Don because of how things went with Teddy
May 07th 2014
278
I thought about that but cant wrap my head around it
May 07th 2014
282
Right - and why *would* she be under that impression?
May 08th 2014
284
I think she's angry because of the proposal meeting in s5 where
May 08th 2014
285
      she's always kind of resented him for not giving her enough credit
May 08th 2014
287
      I think she's loathed him for a long time
May 08th 2014
289
           I just look at it as a surrogate parental relationship.
May 12th 2014
321
N A I L E D I T
May 12th 2014
320
Question: If Don gets fired
May 07th 2014
283
yup based on the new rules he gets screwed out of everything
May 08th 2014
288
      Well he already fucked up, he just didn't get caught
May 08th 2014
290
           i guess if he does he can still get those other jobs
May 08th 2014
296
So, is Peggy a worse manager than Lou?
May 08th 2014
291
Nobody's "worse" than Lou but she may be just as bad.
May 08th 2014
292
      agreed
May 08th 2014
293
           Yup. Don WANTED to be needed also
May 08th 2014
294
                Right he was USUALLY a dick to her in private
May 08th 2014
295
                yeah its her fucked up way of gaining his approval...she sucks around hi...
May 08th 2014
297
                     RE: yeah its her fucked up way of gaining his approval...she sucks aroun...
May 09th 2014
298
                          yup she's got the talent but none of the soft skills...Joan knows how to...
May 09th 2014
299
GOD DAMN
May 11th 2014
301
*Like*
May 11th 2014
302
Yep yep yep.
May 12th 2014
310
So he IS a spaceman then?
May 11th 2014
303
damn this episode was hilarious. ginsberg is a nut.
May 12th 2014
304
Stan in the meeting had me laughing out loud by myself
May 12th 2014
308
my man don had TWO threesomes in the same episode
May 12th 2014
307
Well said.
May 12th 2014
311
*blink*
May 12th 2014
309
yeah that shit threw me for a loop
May 12th 2014
312
      It didn't come out of nowhere at all!
May 12th 2014
313
      that's what i'm talking about though...
May 12th 2014
314
      But the computer thing sealed the deal...
May 12th 2014
316
      I hear you. Who knows..I'm just saying it's not totally unrealistic
May 12th 2014
317
      quirky and loopy is a leap to insane for me
May 12th 2014
315
           Might be. But I think the writers...
May 12th 2014
318
           lol no shit...self-mutilation is a big fuckin step
May 12th 2014
322
                I'm glad Peggy made that call
May 12th 2014
331
      it didn't come out of nowhere AT ALL
May 12th 2014
328
I told y'all Don "Da Gawd" Draper wasn't gonna take that shit!
May 12th 2014
323
Don't say "Lou *even* had to bow down" like...
May 12th 2014
324
For those claiming what Ginsburg did "came from out of nowhere" (link)
May 12th 2014
325
^^^^ thank you.
May 12th 2014
326
"It's the valve"
May 12th 2014
327
yup. thanks for that
May 12th 2014
329
Hrm
May 12th 2014
330
You're grasping at straws.
May 13th 2014
332
      Nah the writer actually made our point
May 13th 2014
333
           GRASPING.
May 13th 2014
334
                we're reading it differently
May 13th 2014
335
                     Yea.
May 13th 2014
336
                          No, you're correct. This did not come from out of nowhere.
May 13th 2014
339
                          Yea we're on the same page here.
May 13th 2014
340
                          ken has a damn eye missing
May 15th 2014
356
                               Hahahaha wait .... Cosgrove is your analogy?
May 15th 2014
357
                               No one said "oh this was obvious"
May 15th 2014
359
                               lol c'mon. n/m
May 15th 2014
360
                          yeah ginsberg has always been the nuttiest one up in that joint
May 13th 2014
344
I think part of it has been his delivery
May 15th 2014
353
Poor Ginsburg
Mar 28th 2015
482
Only Lou could make a cartoon monkey boring
May 13th 2014
337
Yeah, I don't think you were paying attention to the Betty story.
May 13th 2014
338
I think people just hate Betty...
May 13th 2014
341
Right
May 13th 2014
345
betty's the same ol' superficial trophy wife and bad mother
May 13th 2014
342
Flies in the face of everything we know about comics and monkeys
May 15th 2014
351
(gins)berg sans nipple.
May 13th 2014
343
This was a great episode
May 14th 2014
346
I REALLY don't get Lou at all.
May 14th 2014
347
I think Cutler brought him in to hold the line
May 14th 2014
348
      Well said. All appear true.
May 14th 2014
349
      Look homie was set up to cruise
May 14th 2014
350
Yeah I was loving Betty this episode
May 15th 2014
352
      Betty is still terrible, but she's growing
May 15th 2014
355
      Loved the scene of Don looking in on the party.
May 15th 2014
361
           I think Lost, and a bit threatened
May 16th 2014
362
Not sure if I'm buying Don's latest maneuver
May 15th 2014
354
I thought the same thing here...
May 15th 2014
358
Either way he wins.
May 16th 2014
363
      Good point.
May 18th 2014
364
Dang Joan just Godzilla'd all over Bob Benson's hopes and dreams
May 18th 2014
365
love the ending being pete, don and peggy at burgershack
May 19th 2014
366
It was cute
May 19th 2014
387
Pete's about to catch a major W methinks
May 19th 2014
409
we all knew his LA happiness facade would come crashing down
May 22nd 2014
422
... And We Almost Lost Detroi-- oh, wait, we did lose Detroit, oops
May 19th 2014
367
most people saying that are just tired of seeing him catch L's
May 19th 2014
368
      Yep - with you on this.
May 19th 2014
369
           yeah it was a nice moment
May 19th 2014
370
           I like this too, a quick recap.
May 19th 2014
378
                Yes - 100% platonic.
May 19th 2014
380
                     Platonic but not equals
May 20th 2014
413
Can we talk about Harry Crane continuing to catch W's?
May 19th 2014
371
nobody likes him yet he keeps prospering
May 19th 2014
373
      He actually IS good at his job.
May 19th 2014
375
           And nobody seems to know what that job is
May 19th 2014
381
           Has anyone actually said what that computer is supposed to do?
May 19th 2014
384
           Get us to watch Halt and Catch Fire, I think
May 19th 2014
390
                Ahahahahaha. Nice.
May 19th 2014
393
           TV
May 19th 2014
394
           And he wasn't always this much of an asshole
May 19th 2014
383
           i disagree...i know a lot of successful people that suck at life
May 19th 2014
401
                Co-rrect.
May 19th 2014
402
what did Sterling figure out at the end...i missed that
May 19th 2014
372
There's another BIG car account coming down the pike
May 19th 2014
376
Yeah I still didn't get what his steamroom proposition was
May 19th 2014
379
The guy in the steam room from McCann(?) was trying to steal Don
May 19th 2014
382
      Can someone explain to me the connection between...
May 19th 2014
386
      It's all GM owned, right?
May 19th 2014
388
           Good call. I think that's it.
May 19th 2014
391
           yes but that's where i was kind of getting thrown off
May 19th 2014
405
                The real goal was to get an add agency for Buick
May 20th 2014
414
      yeah, that "I want to see EVERYone" line had me on the edge of my seat
May 19th 2014
396
           y'all really trying to make those 2 the new Ross and Rachel huh
May 19th 2014
397
Eff a carousel, when Don made Peggy crack that smile...
May 19th 2014
374
Peggy = Sally has always been obvious BUT
May 19th 2014
377
RE: Peggy = Sally has always been obvious BUT
May 19th 2014
398
They could have ended the series with the Don/Peggy slow dance
May 19th 2014
385
the episodes are analogous to the pitches themselves
May 19th 2014
389
Pete wanna have his cake and smash a beer in it too
May 19th 2014
392
Damn
May 19th 2014
395
What is Megan hiding?
May 19th 2014
399
Good call. Didn't pick up on that...
May 19th 2014
400
I don't think she's hiding anything beyond she wants to stay in LA
May 19th 2014
403
Yea you could be right.
May 19th 2014
406
yep
May 19th 2014

407
      one can only hope
May 19th 2014
412
Well there's soemthing there
May 20th 2014
415
I think there is a massive shakeup at the top coming
May 19th 2014
410
i could see this but i don't think Don wants to run the whole company
May 19th 2014
411
I agree, I also notice she's still hyper emotional
May 20th 2014
416
i think she just hates him...
May 20th 2014
417
      I think you're right though
May 20th 2014
418
Actually I could TOTALLY see Don becoming Roger
May 20th 2014
419
      You got that "The Wire" mindset going on something heavy haha.
May 20th 2014
420
      i think Don enjoys creative too much to be Roger
May 20th 2014
421
YUP
May 27th 2014
451
      Well done.
May 27th 2014

A superb close at halftime, of what has been a very good half-season

      It was so perfect for his character, too
May 27th 2014
443
      Nah man, Sterling gets the overall win for the ep
May 27th 2014
444
I told y'all that Don Da Gawd Draper was going to be back on top
May 26th 2014
430
I think they're setting up to go the sentimental route
May 26th 2014
431
      yeah but at least he gets to shake that stupid contingency

I was curious about this as well.
May 27th 2014

Joan's Don hate was a H-U-G-E misstep this season
May 27th 2014
449
      Agreed entirely.
May 27th 2014

      they made joan unlikeable as fuck.
May 27th 2014

           There's a difference between "jarring" and "out of nowhere!"
May 28th 2014
462
           No one said it was "out of nowhere"
May 28th 2014
463
                Did we also consider that she's going with the flow to save her ass?
May 28th 2014
464
                     We (or at least I) did not...
May 28th 2014
466
                     Its not on the page!
May 28th 2014
467
           Yup. Jarring is the right word
May 28th 2014

May 28th 2014

I rewound that back three times and still couldn't get it, he opens the door for her and she says something then walks back over to the driver side.

It was clearly dubbed in, not because the performance of the actress was bad, but most likely because the original audio wasn't picked up cleanly, since they're shooting outside.

In response to Reply # 2


  

          

His wife's in Cali and they're clearly losing touch, he has no job and can't even admit it (I mean, he's pitching via proxy with Freddie) and it seems like the world's leaving him behind. He didn't even go for that lady next to him on the plane.

Peggy I think might just be eternally frustrated by bumping against the glass ceiling, having to work for a guy who doesn't even seem to care and dealing with obnoxious tenants.

b/c AMC and/or the show's producers are GREEDY AS SHIT. and b/c as was pointed out on CBS Sunday Morning - this is the new trend in entertainment. it happens in movies and TV - final installments of successful franchises split in 2 pieces released a yr apart. it's been going on since at least The Sopranos and Sex & the City on TV and continued through Breaking Bad. it happened w/the Harry Potter movies and continues through The Hunger Games. and on and on.

other than money, it's also about being able to win an extra set of award trophies...which is also about money, of course. and bragging rights, i guess.

it's about $$ and ego.

fuck you.

In response to Reply # 4


  

          

split a movie into two movies you get two rounds at the box office. split a season into two seasons you still have the same number of eps to gain advertising revenue from. it's true that the buzz of the show lasts longer, you can enjoy two awards seasons instead of one but how much money are they making off that? i thought the real loot came from the advertising revenue of the show.

19. "they get to sell ad space for 2 seasons instead of 1."
In response to Reply # 13


  

          

and maybe they can charge a premium for both or either b/c it's the show's final season.

instead of selling Mad Men ad space from like January 2014 through May 2014, they get to sell it from April 2014 - May 2014 and April 2015 through May 2015. ad space costs more during the May sweeps period, i think. they get to sell that premium space 2x instead of 1x.

i think.

fuck you.

Looking tan and smug with sweater tied around his neck, so satisfied with the idea of eating an orange straight off of a tree. Dude is living what he at least thinks is the dream.

It doesn't speak well of Don that he thinks Pete is dressed like a hippie though. Just when you think he can't get more out of touch...

>(And the building looked like Canter's to me)

So it wasn't just me? That was Canter's, right? It would make sense, if for no other reason due to its proximity to the Tarpits.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I need a gif of his earring toss #FAIL.

I wanna say I'm surprised that Roger has completely gone off the rails (moreso than even Don), but this pretty much is in keeping with his character. His befuddlement at how to react to his daughter's apology was fairly great. BTW, she's in a cult right?

And I find it brilliant that Don's first real "Draper pitch" since I wanna say Season 3 came out of the mouth of Freddie Rumsen. A little we know he's got his mojo back.

for some reason i thought he'd regain his sight eventually...didn't seem like he got shot straight in the eye. they fattened him up a bit too to show how stressed he is...dude is hating life right now which kinda sucks to watch. he was so much happier when he was winning as a regular salesmen and writing his pieces on the side.

last season's finale. So it's not like a ton of time has passed. I'm sure the eye patch will be gone eventually but I'd expect an eye patch to remain necessary for up to 2+ months following an injury like that. Especially in 1968/69.

And will somehow wind up at Roger's hippie orgy commune later on in the season. It could still be a cult situation. Roger might be the leader and not even know it.

I will say I do find his transition into this lifestyle to be one of the more farfetched plot developments I've seen on the show, but it's pretty entertaining all the same.

>And I find it brilliant that Don's first real "Draper pitch"

That was a great way to crack open the episode, too. How he was able to impress Peggy and what Don is doing with himself if he's not at work were 2 mysteries I didn't think to put together until the reveal

He's a rich, horny old dude with no real responsibilities who is utterly incapable of having a real connection with anyone anymore. Why wouldn't he wind up running (with) a weird orgy cult?

In response to Reply # 26


  

          

Considering how much Pete and Bob hated each other by the end of last season, the answer is no. Bob schemed Pete out of the GM position, indirectly got his mother killed, and is the indirect reason he "needed" to head to Los Angeles in the first place. So, I really, really, really, REALLY doubt they're fucking.

and if not Bob, then maybe some other queer. but i'm watching Pete for more signs. lol

In response to Reply # 39


          

is a stretch. Bob hit on Pete exactly once. And it was at an exact moment when Pete was at his lowest and loneliest with his situation(s). Pete briefly considered the feeling of companionship but immediately shot down the thought of a homosexual encounter/relationship. At least that's the way I saw it. But either way, I don't think the show in any way made this an ongoing story or situation, or even implied it might be. But I may have missed something, if so let me know.

...that the Bob/Pete relationship theory is highly unlikely.

>i kinda forgot where he left off at the end of the season
>after all that

Last we saw, he coaxed Pete into driving a car he didn't know how to drive, which Pete then crashed into the huge GM sign inside their building, bewildering everyone in the building and ruining his shot at running shit in Detroit.

I can't imagine that we the first sign of a burgeoning relationship. Haha

He was spending his time with Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar this year, so he's probably not getting much, if any, face time.

i don't see him having the creative spark neccesary to be good at his job...he doesn't seem influential at all either...i can't imagine him pitching or convincing anyone of anything, other than that he's boring

plus with Don gone, the other dude working outta Cali, you'd think some of those clients woulda left since the main two creatives aren't in the NY location anymore...

Joan going to that professor was really smart

..we got TWO Black women in the office now, and neither of them are lightbrights??

....i kind of felt bad for everyone this ep (cept Swaggy P, he really seemed like he was trying to be happy)...they all seem miserable in this current state...

also, he seems like a pretty quick decision maker for better or worse. compared to Don's drunken meandering through a single file or two last season, that's got to be refreshing for the office professionally even if it isn't very enjoyable for them personally.

i wonder how the other girls are gonna do with having a Black Boss.... Cooper's "they can see her from the elevator!" line was hilariously telling of the reality of social hierarchy and dat 'cism....

...glad Don told his daughter at least most of the truth.... poor guy really has nothing to do...he cried in tha car though after that scene ended...

my fav scene though, was probably the two secretaries just talking...

yet not totally surprised. his reaction makes perfect sense for the time and who he is but i was still "oh word?" when he saw her and circled back to Joan's office. Obviously knew what it was before he even opened his mouth though.

That was an interesting ep. It was nice to see Don and Sally bond a little. Also cool to see Dawn get a promotion...that should be interesting. They alluded to her doing the job last season though, if i remember correctly.

In response to Reply # 76


          

I think Bert *is* kind of cool with that type of shit but is also smart enough to realize that business could take a hit cause of OTHER people's racism and insecurities so he asked that she be moved from the front to somewhere else just due to that, not necessarily his OWN beliefs and racism. That's just the way I read it but they left it ambiguous for a reason, I'd assume.

if he really had a problem with it based on his own personal beliefs he would not be down with her getting the promotion. i guess we'll see how that plays out but i doubt he'll give a fuck. it's all about public perception.

I'm not convinced Bert was aware of Dawn's promo, or Joan's for that matter. Obviously Roger wasn't previously made aware of Joan's judging by their interaction as she moved her office, so I don't think it's too far fetched to guess that maybe Bert didn't know either.

It seems to me that Cutler is kind of working behind the scenes on a lot of things, perhaps in an effort to move some people out of his way (Bert and Roger come to mind). I think Cutler has some ulterior motives that we'll be more privy to down the line.

if this blows up and there's fallout

its because Cutler is trying to shore up internal support

Joan making that move does something similar


gumz though

this is the area i'm talking about

Joan's promotion deals with accounts, which affects the bottomline of the company, which means Bert is aware. Dawn's promotion is administrative internal, and Bert isn't a micromanager for the most part, so I don't think he's aware or cares too deeply about that position.

(a) Joan didn't really get a promotion, far as I could tell (my bad on calling it a promo above). She just got her office moved and got moved OFF of the personnel desk. She essentially got rid of responsibility and finally got placed among the other partners. I don't think it was a "promotion" or more money at all. She was already handling accounts, Cutler just moved her office to a place more appropriate for an account-handling partner, while at the same time getting her off of personnel matters. It didn't come with a title change or more money. Again, this is just the way I saw it.

(b) Even if it *did* come with a title change and/or money, if Roger wasn't aware of the change then it's reasonable to speculate that Bert wasn't made aware, either.

I think Cutler (and others) are becoming aware of this fact.

pretty sure that Avon account is the only she publicly represents in the office.

114. "Before the position change"
In response to Reply # 102


  

          

she was the head accountant and head of personnel. While important, she didn't have any input on the accounts and creative direction of the company. Her being on accounts and closer to the other partners is a step up IMO. I guess it's debatable if Bert knew or not, but he cares about his paper and Joan being on accounts is something that will effect business brought into the agency.

>bet you she also lost her homie the other secretary

Are you inferring the friend is of the crab in a barrel type individual? She could be that way, but they are also the only two black (female) folks in a still white male dominated office. Her friend would be foolish to be upset, especially with someone that holds some power, albeit limited.

Also, I think Dawn was there before the other black secretary, so the friend shouldn't be upset in terms of lack of meritocracy.

More like that position gains you no friends
It's not about being upset that she got the position but more
Not understanding the decisions that may come with it

Looking at Joan as the example
As well as Peggy

In response to Reply # 66


  

          

And you're correct in that it was cool to see Peggy cast in a somewhat negative light since she's normally the show's moral center, outside of the whole Pete pregnancy thing.

...and i don't get ole boy moping around Cali either, but i'm guessing we'll get more on that later...

oh, and i'll say one thing about Pete, he seems to attract women who do not play when it comes down to handlin their affairs...

or just another power move by Ted and thick frames...seemed like a little bit of both. what he said about not wanting to anger Chevy because they want to land GM made perfect sense though...i get Pete's side as well. i wonder if he'll just completely slack off now and enjoy his time in Cali. if he does it won't last long...he's not built like that. he stays losing.

He single handedly lost the 8mil account when he ran into his Father in-law at the brothel.

Then he almost lost Chevy because he couldn't drive stick and couldn't just tell people that.

His track record with big body accounts isn't really looking too sweet. They're not trying to let him run point on that.

He can get his foot in the door but servicing the accounts ongoing hasn't really been his strength to this point. Obviously both situations were reasonably outside of his control but the people who make the decisions at SCP don't know that.

In response to Reply # 110


          

His claim to fame, remember how he got it? He basically bodied his father in-law into giving him the account to take care of his daughter. Dude really hated him at that point and Pete hit him with that classic shrug.

So once dude saw him at the Brothel it was a stonecold wrap!

He almost made the worst mistake you can make with gearheads, faking being one. If you're not familiar they LOVE to teach you and tell you why you should already appreciate the car, but don't fake lie and get caught.

In response to Sally saying what she was going to wear to the funeral, one of her friends asks "is this your first funeral?"
It may have been a throw away line but seemed like they were trying to plant some kind of seed. Could it be a hint that she will need to attend another funeral (Don)? The only person I remember that has died in Sally's life is Grandpa Gene years earlier.

Could there be future tension between Dawn & Shirley, now that Dawn has some power and is her boss? Dawn seems pretty conservative and proper, but not afraid to stand up for herself. Where Shirley is a less conservative and willing to wear hip stylish clothes and a mean 'fro that I would doubt Dawn approves of in the workplace.

Both could amount to nothing more than me reading into the smallest of details but that is why this show works so well, every little thing could be someting, or not.

Made me realize how Dawn went off an stuck up for herself this episode. I thought she was going to just sit there and take it fomr ol' screwhead racist ass. I thought she'd be fired for that but it all turned into a promotion for her haha (even though she had an out as firing would not look to good on the company: bravo for the writers for bringing these issues up though).

On your premonitions: dont. Just dont bother because just like the Sopranos, nothing means nothing and its fruitless to predict.

Don is on the downslide, as will the story unfold and end.

Guessing he'll be alone, sad and looking at a view of the sunset from a beach chair in Florida, framed like the legendary office shot. OK, not, but it won't be a happy ending.

meanwhile young Bobby outchea on that "fuck my life" tip. i know the feeling.

how fucking stupid is Cutler to think they could just throw Don out the window w/ no financial ramifications. like i know he hates Don cause Don styled all over Ted but damn.

even Peggy shitting on Don. Joan was hating on him like she's really worth a damn.

it's time for Don to get some Ws. the rest of the office needs a fucking reality check.

I was thinking the same thing the entire time. After all the shit Don's done to pick her ass back up and help her when things got rough, she's gonna give him that type of finger-snap bitchy bullshit? Fuck outta here. Her ungrateful ass should've sat there SILENT throughout that meeting and let the other partners do the talking.

In response to Reply # 129


          

that wasn't all that long ago (season 5?), and that wasn't the first time. So yea. I hope he gets to have a moment with Joan like the one he had with Roger. He set Roger straight pretty quick after some brief back and forth, on some "I talked you INTO this agency" shit.

Word up..and since he is back and without having to worry bout Megan, he can be his old killer self and watch him show the rest of those losers how its done


with a vengeance now due to how they did him (even though he did flip out but still he should be allowed a few mishaps with what he brought to the table)

but it is kind of mortifying situation to come back in that manner

And played himself at the end, too. Shoulda just took the offer from the other spot and not looked back. DAMN! Watch this shit be like Jordan's second comeback, too.

I'm mad but I'm happy I'm mad. First episode of the season to get any sort of reaction out of me.

And yo. Betty killed it this week. Styling on all you hoes with a cigarette hanging out a school bus window.

Cutler was a blubbering mess at the end of that rant. Roger is the fucking man. and he's 10000% right, not only about the financial implications but regarding everything about Don.

And ... fuck Cutler. I used to love his screentime now he's just pissing me off everytime he's seen.

In response to Reply # 134
Mon Apr-28-14 09:55 AM by Brew

          

there's still a divide between the Cutler/Chaough (sp) crew and the Sterling/Cooper/Draper crew, even if no one's willing to readily admit it. Cutler's trying to lead a charge but he doesn't have too many soldiers on his squad, it seems, though he's making swift moves to try and sweep up some of the SCDP crew.

And, someone in here mentioned how Cutler's trying to keep Draper out because of "what he did to Ted...". What exactly did he do to Ted? He tried to go to CA but then ended up changing his mind and letting Ted go. Even if the motives behind Don's decision weren't *for* Ted so much as they was for Don himself, the end result was the same and Ted got what he wanted so what could Cutler/Ted be holding against Don in that regard?

the time in the meeting when Don almost outed Ted and Peggy on some public shaming exhibition.

Plus the California thing.

I don't know how much more of Asshole Peggy I'ma be able to take

That fucking Betts

It almost felt like Don and Bobby were on equal footing in this episode, in that both were made to feel especially small by those with more power than them (and also notably by women that they theoretically look up to)

And no, we don't know for sure if ol' girl was brought in by those guys to help seal the deal with Don, though it is *strongly implied* that she was, with their *wink wink har har har* denials...

In response to Reply # 140


          

I remembered that she was doing just fine at Cutler/Chaough before the merger...but still, yea, like you said, Don's an asshole and is especially hard on Peg but I feel like a large part of her success has been DUE to how hard he's been on her. If he babied her she probably wouldn't have been as driven.

But regardless, yea, I agree with you that she needs to eventually let up a little bit. I think that will come with time and hopefully when she gets over the Ted situation.

Has always been the shows MO

But yeah it felt especially salient here. Don's field trip back to the office was probably worse than Bobby's field trip to the farm but Don probably got the better sandwich out of the deal.

What was that line, "I wish it was yesterday" ... Sheeeeit. What a crumby acknowledgement that today sucks and tomorrow ain't looking so hot either. But with Bobby at least he realizes it's a wish. With Don it seems to be an actual life strategy right now. I wanna root for the guy but it's hard not to see all this backfiring on him

They were alternating between short, choppy Don and Bobby scenes for a good portion of that episode, so it was kinda heavy handed but also well done I thought.

Don's been keeping a pretty major secret from her (ostensibly the reason he has remained in NY is because of his job, which he doesn't actually have.) And he only came out to LA to fuck and scold her.

Mon Apr-28-14 11:11 AM by Brew

          

But at the same time, I am not 100% seeing Don's actions as evidence that he doesn't want to be with her. He's doing a lot of soul searching, and is confused, and I think a lot of it has to do with his having lost the job that otherwise used to be his escape from everything else in life. I don't think it's so much that he's not in love with Megan anymore or that he doesn't want to be with her, but just that his confusion and depression about the job situation has caused collateral damage in his relationship.

In other words, I feel like he's always kind of felt that his only positive character trait is his ability to do his job, his drive and his success. Because that's how he feels about himself (evidenced in his conversation with the girl on the plane in ep. 1 as well as his conversation with Megan in this episode when he said something to the effect of "I didn't want you to know because I thought you'd think less of me..."), he thinks that this is how everyone else perceives him as well...someone who's no good unless he's working and making money.

So you can see it from both sides, IMO. Megan sees it as "he doesn't want to be with me...he's been home doing nothing all this time and didn't take that opportunity to move with me"... meanwhile Don's at home thinking "I am nothing without this job...Megan will think I'm nothing without this job," but he isn't realizing the damage he's causing by *not* telling her the whole truth. I mean if the truth was that he in fact DIDN'T want to be with Megan anymore, don't you think he would've been cheating on her non-stop while he had just about the easiest opportunity/open window that he's ever had in his life to do so? Instead, so far we've seen him turn down two layups, both times his very next scene being attempts to better his professional situation.

These things aren't mutually exclusive, killer. He can be a liar and a cheater but still have confused, soul-searching moments.

I was just making the point that I don't think his CURRENT actions are indicative of someone who doesn't love their wife anymore or doesn't want to be with her. I just think he's more focused on the state of his work situation than he is about the situation with his wife, but that situation is collateral damage.

161. "How is he fucking over Freddy?"
In response to Reply # 160


  

          

Wasn't the implication of those scenes being that Freddy has been getting contracting work by being Don's proxy? That's not exactly the kinda situation in which you get to feel fucked over when your "muse" goes back to work.

Besides, for all we know that relationship has already ended and Freddy got himself a job somewhere.

to that kind of ridiculous conclusion considering what was given to us.

He's fucking someone over by getting his job back, is essentially the premise of that argument.

Try "giving you my interpretation of an unimportant television show's events"

I love how you fools are like, getting angry about this.

Anyway ... to your "point," how exactly is he fucking over Freddy? I mean, that was so unimportant to the rest of the show I don't even think it will ever be mentioned again. Freddy was getting money from Don to pitch his ideas. That's it.

I don't even know where you'd get such a strange idea.

Freddy was holding Don down, bringing food to the crib and practically life coaching that dude out of a bottle. I mean, just look at the name: Freddy Rumsen. Fred Rum Sen. Freed from Rum. Free Man. Sorry you're bad at symbolism but it's all right there.

If not for a little Freddy voice in the back of Don's mind guiding the way, dude would've most likely died out on that frozen balcony a couple episodes back. Don gets back on his feet and how does he return the favor? He doesn't. Typical Draper maneuver.

Thats all because he lost his job and was caught cheating by his daughter etc. These aren't mutually exclusive no but there was a cause for this so called spiffy Don you speak of

Granted, I will give you that he tried real good (lol) when he first married Megan that year, but..Don is Don and we have what transpired last season leading up to him eating crow at work and getting separated/dee-vorced. Hell, his issues at work were due to his affair going a different way then he wanted. Chief.

well he fucked up yet againlied about not having a job for one, and not even offering to consider the thought of moving to LA while he's pretty much unemployed. sure it might be easier to try to fix things in NYC, but he can do the same in LA.

i get what you're saying, don is don and you're either going to have to accept him for who he is or get outthat's its difficult or almost impossible for people to change, but i think people cling to that hope. don really is better off single.

Meanwhile Don basically handed over his balls in a jar just so he could be a real ad man again

I don't foresee their rivalry being all that pivotal to the series, but I think they represent 2 opposing mentalities that are driving forces behind the show right now

of the line to Harry Crane at the end of their exchange.

"You have competition.......But you may be the most dishonest person I have ever worked with."

I had to pause the DVR & rewind.

That was up there with any one liner Roger has dropped in the entire series.IMO

Rest of the ep was really good stuff too.
Peggy should check herself, she had success on her own, but it was using the toolbox Don gave her,that is why she butts heads with Lou. She does all the things she had to do for Don (visuals/storyboards/multiple examples) and Lou doesn't understand why. As soon as Ginsberg started running through ideas with Don the first thing he asked for was storyboards, and they hit the ground running.
Side note: Ginsberg has been xtra snarky with Peggr, and was happiest Don was back to get some true direction.

I really get confused with the layout of the office, but isn't Peggy in Lanes old office? She will be extra salty if Don comes back and makes her move too!

This is an excellent, excellent observation on your part and I'm mad at myself for not picking up on it. Further proof that Lou is a fucking moron. I hope he gets his comeuppance at some point.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Mind yall I thought it was the worst season.

but I need a reminder on why so much distaste for Don

I mean Joan and Peggy giving Don that much shit, they are both a product of his "tough love". I love that Roger stood up for his boy.

Lou is insufferable. I hate that MFer

Betty is just an awful petty parent. I'm glad they have not relented on that theme through the years, but man if she aint look luscious holding that future lil white devil as he went night night

The scene(s) when Don returned to the office while going back and forth between He and his son with Bets at the farm, was masterful, IMO. it was disorienting and playing in the theme of layers and mirrors within social relations.

and LOL @ the low key hate the moms had for Teacher's bewbs

i really enjoyed the episode outside of Meg's struggle tears. I also just really dislike her character.

In response to Reply # 151


  

          

that eventually spilled into him turning into a meatball in front of Hershey but...I really wasn't sure why Joan and Peggy were so bummed to have him back. Especially after that first scene of him back in the office, noticing all the influence he's had on that place even while he was away; the two secretaries he wasn't married to had their own offices (one of which was the head of a department, the other essentially so even if it's "just" desk keeping) and the one woman in the office he never had a truly flirtatious relationship with, to the point he actually cared about her, was fucking upstairs in an account executive's office.


To go from that dream-haze like pride to all his proteges seeming put upon by him (of the three, only Dawn felt earned; after all, she really seems too busy to be Don's secretary anymore) was jarring and a little weird. He fucked himself up but I don't really remember him fucking up his relationships with the people in the office other than the partners who trusted him, and a little bit of Peggy's resentment for causing the merger with Cutler's group and gimping her progress up the ladder.

Still the same "arc" for her every episode. Still the worst mother on the planet. You'd think with Don "changing" they'd have her learn just a little. But no, Weiner's happy enough telling the same story over and over with her.

people love to hate these days. remember how weird and old Don and Betty's bedroom looked like when the show started in 1962 or whenever it was? that's how 72 year old Betty's room will look, and she'll be super proud of it. I appreciate her character as much for showing how people from that (and any other era) can't see the need for change, whether due to privilege or stubbornness. Her parenting style fit into the world Mad Men began in perfectly. It's only the past two seasons where seemed entirely out of touch with what children of the 70s will be hoping for.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I'm love to see a meaningful scene with Joan and Peggy. Looks as if Peggy has hit a glass ceiling given that her current boss isn't a mentor unlike the prior two bosses she had. I'm surprised Joan seems to be winning in terms of office hierarchy while the Pegster isn't winning at all. Given how sour she has been, I have a feeling Peggy would find a way to screw things up with Joan though.

In response to Reply # 177


  

          

after Hari Krishna dude tries to make out with her. Joan gave her the nicest-meanest sternest-sweetest talking to in that scene. Peggy needs to have her one of those with Joan on the receiving end. She's always great at calling people out anyway, she's just been so thoroughly deconstructed by her relationships with men she seems unable to pull that card on people anymore. Instead she just inadvertently pulls it on herself.

...the GOAT he was once was. He's a soon-to-be dinosaur of the late '50/early '60s. Dude hasn't done a "knock 'em out the box" pitch since him, Roger, Cooper, and Lane split off to form the new agency. The best pitch he's done since then had to done by Rumsen.

I think people expecting him to come in and work his Draper magic for the remaining four eps of this season are going to be disappointed. This show has always been about the fall of guys like him and the rise of people like Peggy.

216. "Yeah if he reclaims his throne it kinda kills the whole point"
In response to Reply # 215


  

          

Because his throne doesn't really exist anymore. And I bet if we went back to Season 1 knowing what we know now, we'd at least partially recognize it for the sham it was to begin with.

As fun as it would be to watch some sort of Breaking Bad-style finale where the dude just Batmans his way through a list of unfinished business, that's not really something I want or expect.

I'm more concerned, as corny as this is gonna sound, with the dude's soul at this point. His health and relationship with his kids. Last season was weak but the finale was kinda perfect to me. I'm optimistic that the freefall graphic the show opens with is a little more symbolic of the tearing down of one identity to build up a better, truer one.

and his interactions with women, in the context of where he's come, was never particularly mind-blowing. In fact, the very first pitch meeting we really see him in is the one for Mencken's where he essentially says "fuck this, I'm not working for a woman" as a power play and it only goes over fine because it's 1962. He saves the account by revealing himself to be a very flawed individual during the following dinner with Rachel, even though he comes off confused and offended by her assertion that he has any insecurities at all.

Other than a few random presentations (most specifically the slideshow reel, of course) and the general air of inspiration his employees fed off of, Don Draper has actually always been a more of a spectre in the air than an actual, physical thing. There is way more Dick Whitman in this show than Don Draper.

& Roger see's it.

No Cleo's indifferent sweater wearing boss, lots of infighting and turmoil the two firms/offices. Other agencies putting offer in writing to a top exec.

Don's return will brethe some (needed) life back into the creative dept. Even tho a lot of his luster is tarnished, and he is becoming an old man in the game who is stuck in the 60's, when he is focused he is the best thing they have and it rubs off on the others Peggy being the most obvious. The rest of the team was estatic to see him back in that office too.

The question is how long will he remain focused trying to prove to everyone (himself) he still got it. The setup is for his next derailment to really be his last.

What was happening.

He was missing all the clues, Dawn got promoted so she doesn't have time for your piddly little message keeping.

Basically everyone other than the people who worked with him missed him.

My wife called it early in the episode. He's going to have to follow his own advice and he did.

Lou won't be there forever so i'm sure Don will get his office back.

I did have a REAL issue with how Joan was acting. Like we get it you're an account person now but lets not act like Don was personally hurting you. The whole thing was very strange to me. It was like everyone other than the creative kids had forgotten what he'd done for the place.

She fucked the dealer assoc guy to get the acct and then Don discarded it like it was nothing...which it was.

Don was the only one who cared about her humanity at the time tho. She either hates herself for it or hates that Don reminds her that she earned her partnership with her tits, and not her brain. Harry bringing it up in front if everyone didnt help either. Even the partnership wasnt her idea, it was Lane's (even if Lane only suggested it to hide his own embezzlement).

The fact it was all for nothing. I remember him trying to be like, "If I was here I would have stopped it" and she rebuffed his white cape-in the situation as if she was a big girl.

Maybe him being around does remind her what she had to do.

Am I the only one here who's had to go back to a job after being laid off or something? That shit is w e i r d for everyone involved.

Plus they had no idea he'd been invited, and there's a good chance most of them didn't know the full story of why he got dismissed in the first place.

Joan's bit did seem a little extra but overall I thought they nailed that whole vibe perfectly. Survivor's guilt, mixed with things change, mixed with 'we were never really friends in the first place', mixed with 'uh things are actually going pretty smoothly right now could you please not fuck it up'

220. "my first job."
In response to Reply # 217
Thu May-01-14 02:55 PM by Nodima

  

          

but it wasn't all that awkward since I was 16, it was a 50's doo wop themed burger and shakes restaurant and the reason I'd wanted to work there in the first place was because my parents told me I needed a job SOMEWHERE and a lot of friends happened to work there.

but the restaurant had also just opened and I'd been fired as a server, something I never wanted to be anyway, and the managers appreciated the guts it took to come back and ask for a position as a host or bartender (shake maker). along with how many people I hung out with that worked there it wasn't THAT awkward, but I remember feeling a little embarrassed around the catholic school girls and other people outside my core crew.


ACTUALLY, I also went back to the kitchen I worked in from early 2012-late 2013 after they called begging me to come back and cover whatever shifts I could. It'd been like 6-7 months after I left, and I only lasted one day. The guys I liked had moved back to India after accumulating the savings they wanted, there was NO FOH service staff (the manager and porter were handling all the food and drinks) and all the old problems that caused me to get frustrated, blow up on management and get let go rather than promoted in the first place were still there, some of them worse than ever.

Immediately after I left that place around 4PM I went on a bender that went until about 3 in the morning, and when I woke up with the worst hangover I'd ever had I realized I couldn't go back. I'd worked there from Day Zero but it didn't feel like home at all anymore, it felt more like a prison I went back to voluntarily.
