Mad Men > Mad Men Finale Review: "Tomorrowland" > Comments Page 2
Yes, Megan is new and pretty and has often said just the right thing.(Like no strings attached sex). She doesn't know about Dick, as Faye does, but she is also warm and loving and perfect step-mother material. Did you see Gene clinging to her in the first CA scene? Faye is not capable or willing to be the mother those kids so badly need and that Don wants them to have. Faye is smart and has been very good to Don but what unnerved her the most? Sally. It seems completely obvious to me that this is the way Don would go. Megan is the anti-Betty.
I don't disagree with your comments about my talents, but why don't you enlighten us. Why was Peggy so angry? Jealous of Megan? Disappointed in Don. I think it could be many things, that's what makes this show so complicated. There's not always a simple answer to an individual's feelings.
Thanks for reading.
This is a juvenile review. You don't understand why Peggy is upset about the engagement? Then you should probably be reviewing less complex shows than Mad Men (and no, it had nothing to do with any romantic interest that Peggy feels for Don.)
Peggy is upset because she's been working her ass off and gets hardly any recognition - even when she brings in a big deal to "save" the company - and other girls just sleep with people and get to the top. She's witnessing all the inequalities for women in the workplace. Her story is one of the best in the show IMO.
I think Meghan probably is the best option for Don, positive influence for sure... But Don lost a bit of his charm with that quicky proposal.. I'm thinking of switching to team Peggy.. Her moment with Joan was brilliant! And killing off Greg would be a big mistake..
It wasn't the amount of revenue that the new account brought in -it was important by virtue of the fact that it was the first bit of revenue COMING IN THE DOOR instead of LEAVING.
Greg is on Gossip Girl now so maybe he wont be back next year.
It was Dick who proposed to Meghan, not "Don Draper." And that's fine. Since season 1 Dick has been struggling to surface for more than a few seconds. Meghan loves who Don is now, understands that we are the sum of all of our experiences, good and bad, and I think will handle the inevitable disclosure of his Dick Whitman past with aplomb, like the spilled milkshake. She knows he's been a player (re Allison) and still says yes, Not "yes if you change your ways with other women", just yes. And she is happy, he feels like "himself" (Dick) when he's with her. She will be a great stepmother to the kids, something they sorely need, and a kind of "mother" he never had. We all want someone to take care of us at times. In Meghan he has found that. Faye would not enable, and I never got the warmth vibe from her with Don, let alone the kids. I for one hope it sticks.
Betty is a mess...thats nothing new and I think she will be divorced if she doesnt get her act together. With Megan showing great motherly instincts I wouldnt be surprised if Betty is sent to a nut house and Don gets the babies.
I believe Peggy is upset because she was a secretary and she didnt get as lucky as Roger's wife or Megan. Then again she is a female version of Don, without the drama.
Faye wasnt dumped because she was something old. I think she got dumped because she was too much of a good thing for him. Megan was chosen over Faye because she really made him feel like Dick Whitman the man he is truly is but cant seem to accept.
In 1964 $250,000.00 dollars was a lot of money, yes in 2010 that would barely get you a 30 second spot on television. I believe the pantyhose business was about to really take off in the mid-sixties, a lot of women were wearing girdles and garter hose and stockings, but by the mid-sixties, pantyhose were cheaper, and easily replaced. They became a convenient alternative to stockings.
Like all things even this convenient fairly new disposable fashion item, has fallen out of favor since the mid 90s.
As for Don, Megan doesn't know anything about his past, and Faye did, so Megan is just another lie that allows him not to have to deal with his past. If Faye didn't know about his past, he probably would have proposed to Faye, as she stated, she hopes the new girl knows he only likes it when it's new. Faye got old to Don because she new his secret, and he has always wanted to forget his past. With Megan he can do that, until he cheats on her. Yeah, Don is a great catch, as a liar and a
Don is desperate and Betty is a mess! That sums up what happened at the end of the episode.
I agree that the Sally storyline felt incomplete, everyone was predicting some Sally-related drama for the finale. I guess the "Betty needs a therapist" will be in season 5 too, it's been going on for too long.
Unfortunately Greg is not dying in Vietnam. He will be back and eventually Roger will confront him about Joan's child. They cannot kill Greg off screen because Joan's drama would be incomplete...
I predict there won't be any time jumps in the season premiere.
