Michael Ginsberg (credit only)


Sunkist has requested from SC&P a dedicated west coast representative. Despite it being a demotion, Stan asks Don to be that person as Stan has his own ideas of what that west coast position means: the beginning of another advertising firm of his own. Considering Stan's request, Don contemplates his own future based on his recent past behavior, both professionally and personally. He has finally come to the realization of it being destructive and he makes a decision for himself and Megan which would get them away from many of Don's problems, such as Sally's revelation of his affair with Sylvia, and from Sylvia herself.

The skyline behind Peter's desk while he's on the phone clearly shows the Pan-Am building just a couple blocks away as if the office were still on Madison Ave. The Time Life building is not that close to the Pan-Am building. See more »


Don Draper: I was an orphan. I grew up in Pennsylvania in a whorehouse. I read about Milton Hershey and his school in Coronet magazine or some other crap the girls left by the toilet. And I read that some orphans had a different life there. I could picture it. I dreamt of it. Of being wanted. Because the woman who was forced to raise me would look at me every day like she hoped I would disappear. Closest I got to feeling wanted was from a girl who made me go through her john's pockets while they screwed. ...

A return to childhood
24 June 2013 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

I think we all know the feeling of longing for childhood. The feeling of longing for a clean slate. Many times we just lie to ourselves and do not want to admit that to ourselves, because we are grown ups and for our whole life we have been told that once you're a grown up you must act like a grown up. You must be responsible, focused, composed, confident.

Once you become that, you start making success. You land some big business, start to cooperate with major companies like Hershey's, you get a wife and you organize your life the way it was always meant for you to organise it. But chaos is always waiting there to enter into our lives, in one form or another. We ponder and wonder about our existence, about our way of life, we keep on wanting to run somewhere else, but we never know why we want to do that.

UNTIL we break the rules. Until we remember that there is something that made us the way we are know and that we weren't always like that. Then it is that we realise that there was a time when we were all the same; we all had feel and we all had our own rule book, we all had our own history, but were always in search of something. When you realise that we all search for the same things in life, and when you realise it collectively with someone else, it is one of the most universal experiences that can wait for us in our lives. It is the connection that we are missing nowadays.

Right now, I am trying to express this experience in words, trying to make the best out of my thinking and pondering, but ten years ago I might have just eaten a chocolate and all the words would be useless.

A great finale, totally rounded up episode and season, more great acting, esp. from Elizabeth Moss and the amazing Jon Hamm. Can't wait for the next one.
