Episode 97 - Dave Loses Steve Over the Horizon

That is, undoubtedly, the worst title I have come up with.

Is there anything better than Peggy walking into McCann with a butt and her box of stuff?

Rattling window!

Jet plane!

Don leaves!

ROBERT MORSE!  We would both watch a show where Don Draper and the ghost of Bert Cooper travel around the midwest solving crimes.  We could call it 'Highway to Objectivism' (Credit to Neil Brauer for that one).

Oh Don, don't chase Diana.

Peggy on roller skates is one of my favourite moments in the show.

Episode 96 - Steve and Dave Have the Time of Their Lives

Not a great title, clever title wise, but not bad.

We're getting near the end, the music is getting melancholy too.

Irksome is the word of the day.

There are a few emotionally manipulating scenes in the episode, I don't mind being manipulated when it is done well.

Stan is great in this one.

Don goes searching for Diana, but finds two guys in her old place.

Lou gets a happy ending.  I hate Lou.

Have I mentioned that I hate Lou?

Episode 95 - Dave Gives Steve a Forecast

As I keep noting, we're getting near the end.

There's a melancholy property to the music.

(Speaking of music 'The First Time Ever I saw Your Face' is a pretty great song).

The show knows it's almost over too, and sort of keeps reminding us, or at least commenting on it.

No Diana happily...

Hey, it's Captain Pike!  No not that Captain Pike, the other one.

Don is selling the apartment, which makes sense, but it's, again, the end of an era.

Sally is excellent in this one, almost as excellent as Kiernan Shipka.

Roger has actual work to do, which he pawns off on Don.  Of course at first he tried pawning it off on Ted.

Peggy wants a real performance review.

Don is having discussions, but those discussions are not on the topics that people think they are on.

No this isn't about Mad Men, but you know what?  We don't care, what did you pay for this anyway? We have a new project and we thoug...
