So Roger and Bert didn't know anything about Don's actual past? I thought perhaps they did based on when Pete confronted them way back when about it.

Bert knows about Dick Whitman

That's what I thought. So, given that Bert is/was close enough to Don to know his past and Roger seems to have know something at least, why blindside him like that and embarrass him? The two of them could have just as easily told him he needed time off to clean up etc. and let him keep his dignity instead of ####### him over and having Duck bring in somebody.

Duck's a headhunter. Maybe the guy coming in was a temp. Although it does seem a bit uncouth to give Don the temporary boot and interview his temp-to-perm (?) replacement back-to-back.

I think Don needed to go down here, but I would rather have had Bert and Roger in his office waiting for him and confronting him about his actions and his identity and then asking him to take a leave, rather than how they all so coldly ####ed him over. I guess they just wanted to really drive home the point that nobody really cares about Don Draper, even after he stood up for Joan and volunteered to let Ted go to Cali to save his marriage, they still were in on it.

These guys don't exactly have a great track record of putting people's feelings before business.

True. But the way they handled the meeting in the first place was as respectful as possible, given the task.

Or maybe they just set it up that way so you can get the extra knife-twist of running into Duck on the way out, and the "Going down?" line.

"She loved the sea."

:lmao:

The episode should have ended with the elevator doors closing on Don.

Nah the ending with the kids was great.

We'll just have to agree to agree that you're wrong on this one. LOL @ Both Sides Now. Embarassingly over the head.

"Why is Kent wearing an eyepatch?"

"How is Glen related to Sally now?"

"So is the black grandmother going to be a recurring character now? I don't get it."

"I just noticed that the guy that plays Cutter was also Xerxes in 'Remember the Titans'."

Are you scouring twitter for Mad Men comments?

The funny thing is I didn't start watching til season three or four and didn't watch one or two until season four was over. So as much as I enjoyed the show I was wandering around asking things like "wait, don is really some guy named dick?" Wpuld have made your head explode.

Nope. No way is an elevator closing better than that moment Sally and Don shared.

Was the elevator door closing better than the scene where Megan dies?

That your life is boring enough that you need to hammer home a prediction not coming true on the message board?

Agreed. The elevator and that line would have been too cliche.
