Yup, he's a definitely a WWII vet. Remember (was it last season?) when he insulted some potential Japanese clients in a meeting because they were Japanese? I.e., his former enemies.

Honda motorcycles I believe.

he commanded a ship in the pacific, no? so it's not surprising that he was in his late 20s or early 30s

Sterling was in WWII and Draper in Korea. Cooper there was no mention of military service.

Season 1's Red In the Face episode where Sterling hits on Betty at their home was when he was talking about shooting down Japanese planes from his ship and his whole interpretation the war was about petrol. I reckon he has to be older than JFK because he thought he was a boy during the JFK/Nixon election.

From the former lover of his in Season 3 (the horse meat episode), he was one of those Americans who wandered Europe in the years leading up to WWII doing eclectic things like boxing and ended up working at Sterling Cooper until he entered service after he was blamed for losing the C something horse farm account. I absolutely wouldn't be surprised if his father ordered him to do most of this.

In the preview for the finale, Draper drops by someone's place unexpectedly and the door behind him is brown, which isn't Peggy's (green) or Joan's door (pink). So perhaps Peggy doesn't make an appearance and we'll have to see if he keeps his season 3 finale promise that he'd spend the rest of his life trying to hire her back.

The cycle repeats. Don's toothache as a symbol that nothing every really just "goes away" we all carry the burdens of our decisions with us through life. Don is doomed to repeat the same decisions over and over and over again because he has never truly faced anything. He can run, he can hide, he can try to choke it out, drown it away, or avoid it.

I am very excited to see where season 6 takes us.

I was pretty bored. Roger was definitely the highlight of this episode.

I thought it was underwhelming, although I've felt the whole season was underwhelming.

So did Meagan bring the old Don back?

Yeah, Roger was awesome.

Who had Peggy just finished her fling with or was it another nameless pickup?

Her mother pushed Don over the edge and back into his old ways. By saying, more or less, 'its your job to take care of her', he reverts back to the way of thinking when we was with Betty. That is, I take care of my wife at home, so I can do whatever I want when I'm not. Betty got two kids and a house in 'burbs. Megan got her part. All is as it should be in the world of Don Draper. He didn't respect Betty because she got nothing for herself. He respected Megan when she was earning her keep at the office (and succeeding), but now that he just needs to take care of her, he's lost that respect for her and the relationship.

It's a little more than that. Meagan rejected Don's world, a world where she was apparently pretty good. Then she started hanging with a bunch of people that were rather snide to Don, looked down their noses at him...while they were mooching off his largesse. So after this rather shabby treatment and rejection Meagan then turns around and needs Don's influence to get a part that will, per Meagan, make all her friends jealous...they same friends that seem to hold Don in contempt.

If you think about it she was really pretty shitty to Don.
