Storyline

As his divorce reaches its final stages, Don learns from Harry that Megan is coming to town and wants Harry's help to find a new agent. Don stays clear of the apartment when Megan is scheduled to clear out her things, supposedly just a few boxes. Megan's mother Marie has something else in mind. When it comes time to sign the divorce papers, Megan tells him just what is on her mind. Harry meanwhile steps over the line. Don visits Diana the waitress who has relocated to the city and they begin a relationship. At the office Peggy and Stan disagree over the use of photographer Pima Ryan for a photo shoot. Peggy thinks she's an artist but Stan, also a photographer, thinks otherwise. Written by garykmcd

Could've been good
14 April 2015 | by DrFreeman86See all my reviews

It surely had potential. Diana trying all those roles the former women in Dons life (except Betty who is again one of a kind for Don).

And the angle of the old things becoming "new business" again was surely promising.

But I dare say that the episode didn't deliver on any of its topics.

AND THE THING WITH THE MILLION DOLLAR CHEQUE IS SIMPLY STUPID AND FORCED.

Especially when you consider Dons humble upbringing.

I surely hope the rest of the season (aka the series finale) will improve drastically as "Waterloo" has indicated.
