I know this is a week late, but with my family commitments from last Sunday and being busy until now, I wasn’t able to see the Season 5 finale until tonight.
Lots of things going on: Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce & Harris now dealing with Lane’s death although he’s not mentioned. Don has some pain, both physical and mental. Pete has Beth come back into his life, then gets knocked the eff out again. Megan is hurting over the rejection by Don of having her audition for an agency spot. Roger meets Megan’s mom and tries to equal his LSD high from earlier in the season. Peggy is back and she meets Don at a movie theater to tell him that she’s moving on up in her agency. And SCDPH is moving into bigger space thanks to more money coming into the company.
Of course, Matt Weiner has to end the season with dogs humping and showing John Slattery’s naked ass. Typical Matt.
Here’s the video of Matt Weiner, Christina Hendricks, Vincent Kartheiser, Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss and Jessica Paré all discussing the season finale.
And here are the final scenes of the Season 5 Finale as Don, Megan, Peggy, Pete and Roger all reflect on where they are in life at the present time. Great use of the song, “Love is a Stranger” in the last scenes of the season. Warning, dogs humping and male naked ass alert.
And in our last video of the season, costume designer Janie Bryant tell us what she picked for Jessica Paré to wear to tell Megan Draper’s story in the season finale.
And that concludes Season 5 of Mad Men. We have to wait for another year for Season 6. Gah. But if you need your Mad Men fix, the episodes air Sunday mornings at 6 East/5 Central on AMC. Of course, you can find the previous four seasons on Netflix and the entire Season 5 is on iTunes. I think I’m done with the plugs. Now if AMC could provide screeners. Oh that’s right, Matt Weiner is not in favor of providing screeners due to critics spoiling the episodes. Oh well.
