The seventh season of "Mad Men" his its midway point, and its last episode until 2015, with a song in its heart -- specifically, "The Best Things in Life Are Free," which Bert Cooper returned from the grave to croon to a teary-eyed Don Draper. It was a surprising move, to say the least, and one not without its detractors -- my own take on that, and the rest of the episode, is here -- but there's no question it left us with a strong image to contemplate over the long break until the show's finale seven episodes. In its final season, "Mad Men" has knocked off characters and finalized stories with greater aplomb than any show since "The Wire": They'll be done with every one of them in seven hours, so why not give Ginsberg a psychotic break, or send Bert Cooper off to the great agency in the sky? »
