Well, this was an interesting episode. If you haven’t seen it yet, my suggestion is to bookmark this page and then return when you’ve seen the season finale.
Lots of stuff happened. Don Draper gets engaged, but not to whom you might think based on previous episodes. Peggy and Ken Cosgrove get new business for the firm, but find their news is overshadowed by Don’s announcement. Betty was being a complete cunt in this episode (sorry, there’s no other way to describe Betty in this episode). There’s Joan’s bombshell in the last ten minutes that she didn’t go through with the abortion and she’s carrying Roger’s baby, only to tell her husband Greg stationed in Vietnam that the baby is his. And you have Don discovering that he’s comfortable with the current situation, but not knowing if this is actually right.
Since this is the final episode of the season, we don’t have a sneak peek, but we do have plenty of videos of the finale titled “Tomorrowland”.
Let’s go inside this episode with Matthew Weiner, Jon Hamm, John Slattery, Elisabeth Moss and Christina Hendricks.
On to one of the scenes from tonight’s episode, Peggy and Joan discussing Don’s engagement to his secretary, Megan. This is one of my favorite scenes of the season, Peggy and Joan going off.
Joan and Peggy rock. Peggy saying, “That’s bullshit!” is classic.
Now let’s relive Don telling Betty that he’s getting married.
And here’s our last recap of the season.
Overall, I’d give this season an A minus. It started off slowly, but ramped up around episode 4. There were some really excellent episodes this season. I’m looking forward to season 5. And of course, you’ll see the recaps here once the episodes are over.
