Yeah, I wasn't willing to go back and try to watch the old scenes, but I kept thinking that the whorehouse doesn't really fit with what we already know about Don...seems like it is not rural enough and there are too many girls around.

The brother is way younger than Don and probably wasn't born by the time in the whorehouse.

 

Ok, I reread an article on Don, the man in the brothel isn't his father, but Uncle Mac. The woman he came with is the second wife of his late dad. Did she have Adam yet? I can't remember from the episodes.

He was actually a half-brother and may have been raised somewhere else... but yeah, it does seem like they forgot about that component.

I thought when they brought Don and his step mom into the brothel, the step mom was pregnant. Maybe I'm mis-remembering...

IIRC -- Don grew up on a farm with his father and step-mother. He was brought to the farm as a baby because his mother, who was a prostitute, died during childbirth. When he was little his old man was kicked in the face by a horse, which forced his step-mother to take Don, leave the farm, and live with Uncle Mac in the brothel. I think his brother Adam was born in the brothel at a later time, so he may not have been around for those scenes.

That's how it was.

I did not know that Judy Collins song (played at the end of the season finale) was actually written by Joni Mitchell.

It was a rather upbeat version of that Joni Mitchell song.

Not sure I buy it, but an interesting idea about where it is all going:

That's been raised before and pretty sure Weiner said that's not the case.
post #747 of 760
interesting theory thats for sure.
post #748 of 760
That's far fetched, but it does kind of make me wonder why there's never been a DB Cooper movie.
post #749 of 760
It'd probably be extremely boring considering nothing is known of the guy. 20 mins of some made up backstory, an hour of him sitting on a plane, and a 20 minute epilogue of conjecture.

Kind of like Speed 2 on horse tranquilizers.

It would have been a good ending to something like Catch Me If You Can, though. That one was awesome and would have been a great take on the cooper story if they wrote that situation into it.

Obviously it would be mostly fictional, but there's a good movie to be made.
