I just finished watching this episode and I had to rewind several scenes on the DVR to make sure I saw and/or heard exactly what I had seen or heard. First, Roger Sterling needs his own show when Mad Men finishes its run. His lines tonight were the funniest I’ve heard in a long time. Second, what the hell was that with Roger Sterling at the end? And third, seeing five unhappy and stunned people in one of the closing scenes with Megan’s parents, Don, Megan and Sally Draper was a great touch. Oh yes, Glenn the Creepy Kid returned.
And the interesting sideplot of Peggy and Abe and the reaction to their announcement of living together was very good.
This has been quite the strong season for Mad Men. And yes, we’re now in the second half of the season if you can believe that.
In this video that goes inside the episode, Matt Weiner, Elisabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks, Jon Hamm and Jessica Paré talk about one of the more interesting themes of the season.
And here’s what’s in store for next week.
No other videos for tonight. I’ll take what I can get.
The next Mad Men episode airs Sunday, May 6 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.
