No, she's still on the show, its been on all the preview posts everywhere.
Joans Boobs .. you mean her office partners?
Power tripping balls, maybe
Yes

It will be brilliant!  I still hold hopes for Joan and Roger getting back together at some point.  Pete Campbell will fark anything that he can lure back to his new apartment in the city.  Megan will become depressed after she can't get anymore gigs, turns into an alcoholic and gets pregnant.  The old Don will come back and fark women on top of his wife while she is passed out.

I think Megan's gonna be burning a bra here before too long. Megan or Peggy, not sure which.
Ginsberg is going to challenge Don, because the 60s are soon going to be in Ginsberg's wheelhouse, and leave Don gasping for breath and left behind. Somehow Roger doesn't give a crap, since Roger has no philosophy other than "get laid" and that'll fit the swingin' 70s just fine. Don on the other hand.. I really can do without seeing him in muttonchop sideburns, nehru jackets and bellbottoms.

Wow! Alabama and Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl! Drinking! Smoking! And the hippie movement rears its counterculture head! It's all back! Stick around after the show where, on tonight's "The Talking Mad Men", Matthew Weiner will refuse to say anything relevant or spoilerish, someone from an AMC reality series with blather on, and in the Death Lounge, Jared Harris will be hanging around. All tonight on "The Talking Mad Men"!

I'd say this was the first episode's twist in reverse, but I think everyone predicted Don was back to his old ways by the end of last season.

Grungehamster: I'd say this was the first episode's twist in reverse, but I think everyone predicted Don was back to his old ways by the end of last season.


It's not really his old ways though. Old Don would NEVER have gone for a friend's wife nor would he have gone for someone who lived in the same building as him and his wife. He used  to keep his philandering totally separate from his family life- the fact that he ended up with Sally's former teacher signified his marriage's downfall before.

I think Don's in a downward spiral now. He's depressed, broken and his alcoholism has gotten out of control. (Old Don also never would have lost it in front of Pete and Ken Cosgrove, way too undignified) That was almost Freddy Rumson level drunk.

I think this season is not going to be kind to Don.

Only mistake/flub I caught was that PFC Dinkins (according to the back of the lighter) was a PV2 indicated by the single chevron on his uniform.  I also know that he served 8 months in 'Nam, and PV2s usually get promoted after 6 months to PFC.  He may have gotten an Article 15 and downgraded, but with the level of detail that this show goes through on a per episode basis, I chalked it up to a flub.

I also remember an episode where they say Sally hitches a ride to Woodstock, can't remember which one, so I either see creepy Glenn coming back or Sandy taking her this season since this year is 1968 if I am correct.

That's what was bugging me! There was something about his uni that was making me think "this is wrong" but I couldn't put my finger on it. You're right -- he was missing the rocker.

I might have been able to catch it sooner, but I was on my second triple-bourbon at that point (with one more triple to go).

I enjoyed it, especially when the photographer asked Don to be himself. A cigarette is a crutch against a hateful society, as I know too well, and he has someone else's lighter. Dinkins or Draper....neither one is him.

I always thought Weiner intends to have Don sail out the window a la the opening montage. He seems preoccupied with death, hounding the doorman, asking questions, etc. And he stood and looked out that window an awful long time. I think suicide might be in the cards.
