The ninth episode of “Mad Men’s” final season is titled “New Business,” but save for a few smatterings of mentions of client wooing (Pete has his golf clubs on standby and two assistants attempt to keep Roger on schedule), the episode was very much determined to wrap up some of the show’s old business without advancing much of the current storylines.
Early in the episode, Don is seen winning the award for Best Weekend Dad by letting himself into his ex-wife’s kitchen to make milkshakes for his sons just in time for Betty and Henry to catch him in the act. He looks back sadly at his kids as he leaves, off to his huge empty penthouse in the city with only an anticipated parade of random women to keep him company.
This could be why he tracked down Diana, the diner waitress from last episode (Elisabeth »

Along to assist him in this risky mission are his father (Plummer) and son (Sheridan).
From the outset, the trailer promises a gritty, thrilling actioner – in similar vein to last year’s The Art Of The Steal. As it progresses and more of the story and character begin to unravel, it crosses into unexpected territory. Character-wise, there are touches »
