The figure in the animation doesn't appear to jump, he's falling as the structure collapses beneath him.

Good read and I always figure that when a series wraps up the over arching metaphor might become concrete. Others have felt this and asked Weiner directly if the metaphor becomes actual. He replied as I said above, that Don survives to a ripe old age, and the last scenes might be elderly Don looking back.

I also think the opening metaphor shows the tension between Don's true interior and the cool facade he presents to the world. He has been letting things slip in conversations with Megan lately that support this with a good example being the comment to the effect of him being frightened and something else (and then she says "fearless" and gives him a BJ.)

My better-half is convinced that Don is going to jump off the Time Warner building in the final episode facepalm.gif

Any bets on when Weiner's son will show up this season for his obligatory episode? I say; the earlier, the better.

Don making doc's wife his whore -- I saw that not lasting. Talk about a power play on his part though.

Pete chair scene in the meeting was funny.

 

Her leaving and talking about Megan and the Doc as she did it was the true power play, lets be serious here.

Oddest episode of Mad Men ever. Had some pretty memorable moments but overall the damn drug shots were a net negative IMO and the cat burglar was out there.

Who the fuck thinks giving speed to Don Draper is a good idea?

Worst episode ever? I had hoped that after the last two it was on an upswing. False hope I guess.

I caught the episode 15 minutes in and was beyond confused.

I felt like I both enjoyed and hated this episode. It had some GREAT moments and then it was just whack at times.

Ken Cosgrove provided what may be my most favorite scene in all of Mad Men.

Did we see Roger after his shot? Remember the "doctor" was asking everyone if they had a heart condition. Roger told him he did on the way in and the guy said it didn't matter. That's the last we saw of Roger. Do they find him dead next week?

IMO, the most important line in the epi last night was when Sally told Don she did not know anything about him. I also find it odd that never once has the Draper kids had a conversation with their parents that ended with, "I love you."

I like how he said , "I left the door open, it was my fault" right as she was hanging up. To a normal person, you would expect a father in this moment to keep his daughter on the line to tell her, " I love you." If you listen/watch that line again, you'll notice that when he says "I left the door..." the first couple words sound a lot like, " I love you."

That episode was so off putting, I had trouble sleeping right after it.
