We’ve seen him to try to reform before and I’m uncertain as to whether or not he can.BUT when Megan goes off on him for ruining her life, he says “I’m sorry” and cuts her a seven figure check. As one of Megan’s non-fans, I’m not sure if Double D really ruined her life: she’s a bad actress who walked away from the thing she did well, advertising.
One reason Don dumped Faye is his desire to play hero and save a damsel in distress.Don sees her as a kindred, wounded spirit and, more importantly as someone he can save from her past and from herself.It’s always ironic that Don thinks he can save or change others when he can’t even change himself. It’s what the show is all about: moments and characters, not fast paced action.And yes, I, too, want to see Sally, Jim Cutler as well as Ted Chaough’s latest sweater. Viewers may be expecting big things from the last few episodes but, like Peggy and unlike Stan, Matthew Weiner doesn’t give a damn what others think.What’s more awkward than running into people you know on a moving box full of strangers?
I thought Diana’s eyes were going to pop out of her head when she saw Don’s digs. It all came crashing down when they met at her dumpy apartment.
He’ll pursue his artistic vision to the, more likely than not, bitter end.
I’ll dive in to the deep end of the episode after the break, but first the divine Mimi Rogers as Pima Ryan: Greta, Marlena, & Pima: My favorite sub-plot of the episode was the appearance of arty farty photographer Pima Ryan.
She doesn’t have enough money, so who ya gonna call? The Calvet family melodrama concludes with Mere Marie finally dumping her communist academic husband and staying in New York, NY, the town so nice they named it twice. Their French accent is pure Paris and they’re allegedly from Montreal. Don Draper’s Boulevard Of Broken Dreams: Don’s soda jerking with his boys sends him on another trip down memory lane.
Not Ghostbusters but the human ATM, Roger the silver tongued devil Sterling. Sister Marie-France blames Megan and the not-so nice Big Apple for everything and makes all of the events of the day about herself. You can see it in the wistful look on his face as he exits.
She admitted to abandoning her daughter in Racine so she could come to New York and lose herself in sex and drink.
