On an all next episode of Mad Men...

Megan: Don! Why won't you let me be 'appy? I want to become an actress!

Don: I do want you to be happy!

Megan: Then why won't you support me? You probably want me to fail!

Don:.....Why do you keep placing the wrong emphasis on some words?

Megan: I don't know what dat is supposed to mean!


Probably better they didn't go down this route.

I don't know any French Canadian people so this whole discussion is gibberish to me.

Carry on. nod[1].gif

"Side by each" and "a pair of toast" are always amusing to me.

If it wasn't Megan, I think the scene was just telling us that Don is back on his game and everything is once again going his way, including random women finding him attractive.

That's pretty deeply layered - Don was in bed reading a Bond novel a couple of episodes ago. "You Only Live Twice" - he's lived as Dick Whitman and as Don Draper. And he had one life with Betty, so maybe he's only getting one more life with Megan, i.e., one more chance to make it work, find happiness, etc.. While it was on we saw shots of most of the partners, and the lyrics go on to say, "one life for yourself, and one for your dreams". They all need the agency (or what it can provide) to live their dreams. The agency itself is a reincarnation. And is apparently about to evolve again. And, YOLT is a nice, moody, period-accurate song.

Or, Weiner has a hard on for Nancy Sinatra. rotflmao.gif

For the record, I thought the blonde was Megan's friend.

So what, another 18 months to kill now? When does Boardwalk Empire start up again?

Boardwalk should start in a few months. It'll end just a week or so before GOT and Mad Men start back up icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

So Megan's friend is trying to get Don to cheat?

Or was that Megan across the bar?

Megan's friend:

192

Blonde in the bar:

240

You can watch the final scene here. I noted that Megan's friend had an accent, but the woman in the bar does not.

That's some super sleuthing. Glad you cleared that up because I was wondering about that too.

Well, I hate to feel stupid, and if they were the same person and I didn't notice, I'd feel, you know, stupid.

So, I've answered my own question. I found an interview of Jessica pare on Canadian tv. She's forgotten a lot of her French and tends to slip into English. Her québécois accent--in contrast to the guy interviewing her, is barely perceptible.

In season 4 (the episode in which she, Dr. Faye and the other women where behind the one-way mirror) Megan said her mother was originally from France.

I immediately thought it was her friend. Re-watching the scenes, it might not be. Seems odd that the friend wouldn't get some sort of revenge prior to the end of the season. Why drop that plot point completely? I suppose it could reemerge...

I still think they look the same. In fact, they look too similar. Casting did that on purpose. Why cast two bit parts that look identical?

The other girl at the bar was in no way, shape or form, Megan.
