Uh...I thought it was the best episode of this season...
Mad Men Season 6 (Begins April 7, 2013) - Page 14
He's not truly a sociopath is the thing. He is just majorly fucked up in the head. Also, the big take away from his maundering to Megan is that he has discovered he does indeed love his oldest son. It's a big development for Don. You see it's not that he cannot feel, but due to his really bad childhood, he's learned to pick and choose who he cares for and how.
I thought the scene in the bedroom with Megan and Don talking about his kids was very powerful. Reminded me a bit of the emotion from what is, quite possibly, the greatest scene in Mad Men history, The Carousel.
I agree that the focus on non business related issues is a little disappointing but there is so much going on in the world at this point it can't be ignored. Kinda wish they would just get rid of Betty and Francis, their story line is in desperate need of a lift.
