Yeah, it was foreshadowing and I'm surprised no one (myself included) didn't pick up on that.

Another look at the poster now that the season is over:



Both Dons are moving away from Madison Ave.

The amphetamine episode was my favorite of the season. The bugler was scary as hell, and seeing the whole office go a bit crazy was fun.

Ken Cosgrove's tap dance extravaganza was the winrar for me.

I think California is a place that feels he can reinvent himself. He did it when he stayed at the pool house a few seasons ago. Seeing him with Anna was the first time he was comfortably honest with someone. He had that short scene where he was bring groceries back to Anna and saw a few guys working on a hot rod and stopped to chat about he use to sell cars, something he did as Dick Whitman. He also saw how that short guy and to some extent, Harry reinvented themselves in California at the pool party and told the girl smoking hash not to call him Don.

Any time he's in NYC and confronts not being Don it's traumatic for him, like vomiting in the sink thinking Gmen are following him after Pete got that Airline account, or his biological brother showing up out of no where, agreeing to meet him at a cafe no one ever went to, and nervously looking over his shoulder the whole time while telling him to go away and never contact him again.

I like the conclusion Don reached this episode, but I don't like how he got there. I thought the Hershey meeting was out of character for him. Who was the man Duck had with him? Duck is working as a Head Hunter if I remember correctly, but I don't remember who the guy is that he was bringing into SC&P.

I cracked up when Harry said this

That was an instant meme. I'm sure the first one hit the Netwebs prior to commercial break.

Speaking of the biological brother...where is he at the whorehouse?

Don't we see a flashback of Don leaving for the war and the brother watching him go?

Yeah, was wondering how they're fitting that all in. It's almost like they've had a break in continuity at this point.
