Why don't the Drapers and their children go to church?
Now that Sterling/Cooper is for sale again and Don's name has been in the headlines so much, will he be able to raise the money to buy it back?
Copywriters Paul and Peggy (Michael Gladis and Elisabeth Moss) and the whole Western Union thing was a bit strange. Moss acts rings around Gladis. Giving him a drunk scene (think the drunk porter in "Macbeth" and you get the idea) just spotlighted his inability to carry a scene himself. How appropriate that the janitor who gave Paul a moment of insight was named was Achilles - appropriate and ironic.
Pretty ironic moment when Paul realizes Peggy is way smarter and way better at the job that he ever will be.
Will Don start his own shop and bring Joan back? She was certainly the spice in that office. All that va-va-voom and smart as a whip, to boot.
Don's new girl is dangerous. She is way into him. This will not end well.
The whole sub-plot about the girl's brother was a stark reminder about Don's real brother and the suicide.
Since the name of this episode was "The Color Blue," I kept expecting to hear some of the soundtrack to "Kind of Blue," the great Miles Davis album released in 1959, but I didn't catch any of the tunes. Too bad, because the music would have fit perfectly with almost any of the scenes.
And, where was Conrad Hilton? He was supposed to be at Sterling Cooper's 40th Anniversary party at the Waldorf-Astoria. I didn't see him, but then, the lavish party was only the last 2-3 minutes of the show. From the still photos, we sure missed a lot of flowers, rich stage settings, neat wardrobe, hair and makeup. Maybe they'll continue the party into next week's episode.
This really is the best TV series ... only 3 more episodes.
