Mad T LOunge

Posted on May 19, 2013

Darlings, let’s all grab a subordinate, take them to a dark bar, and commit adultery this evening, shall we?

Whiskey Blue, NYC

Does this not look like a place where Roger or Don might  hang out? Grab a seat. We’ll set up the tab. Old Fashioneds are half-price during Happy Hour.

SPOILER ALERT: Hugely revealing Mad Men preview to follow! Avert your eyes!

Haha. Psych.

Talk amongst yourselves, darlings. Feel free to shout out “WHORE RED!” or “BLUE AND GREEN!” at weird moments. Your viewing buddies will all think you’re nuts, but we’ll know the real truth, won’t we?

    • Jessi03

      I wish I could be a part of the TLounge! Alas, I don’t have cable and I go every Sunday to a Game of Thrones party. I sneakily watch Mad Men after midnight online. Enjoy, fellow kittens!

      • SRQkitten

        Jessi, a GOT party sounds pretty fun! Sounds like you have best of both worlds.

        • Jessi03

          It really is fun! I irritated all the guys last night, though, because I kept analyzing the costumes a la Mad Style. Did you notice that Sansa’s wedding attire was a Margaery-style gown with small armor details (Cersei) and Cersei’s hair almost exactly? In addition to that, instead of the pattern on her gown being wolves, lions, or even fish, it was flowers. She wishes she were marrying into the Tyrell family, and it shows on her gown.

      I almost forgot about Mad Men/TLOunge because I graduated from law school today! Drinks for all the bitter kittens, on me!

      • NDC_IPCentral

        Congratulations, Democracy Diva, from one venerable Portia to a fledgling. My nephew graduated from law school this past Monday. Good luck with your bar review studies (which are probably starting immediately) and the job hunt.

      • SRQkitten

        Congrats DD!! Major milestone there! Sounds much better than my weekend, we had to take our 14 y.o. Dog to the vet to be put to sleep Friday and I’ve been in mourning, cleaning up after her toys, throwing out old carpet that we only kept to make it easier to get up, err. In other words, this weekend not so good. A glass of wine will help along with more MM.

        • http://www.facebook.com/sally.mabadi Sally Shield Mabadi

          So sorry for your loss, SRQKitten. Dogs are part of the family and it sounds like a very tough time in your house. Best wishes and I hope you enjoy your wine and MM.

        • http://twitter.com/democracydiva Democracy Diva

          Thanks, SRQ, and I hope your dog is up in heaven playing with my cat Sasha. <3

          • SRQkitten

            Thanks Sally & DD, we were blessed to have her for as many years as we did, big dogs don’t seem to live as long as the lil’ yappers. Our pupper loved kitties, she has one up there waiting for her already.

            Good luck with getting ready for the bar exam! Know from my brother how fun that can be….

        • MilaXX

          Oh so sorry to hear that. Such a tough decision to make, but good pet mommies always do. Come sit beside me and let me buy you a round.

          • SRQkitten

            Thanks Mila, we’d had a number of months of ups & downs, actually had made “the” appt on three previous occasions but then pupper decided it wasn’t her time. This time not so fortunate, I do have a sad and will gladly take that drink.

            • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

              Next one is on me – horrible for you SRQ.

        • Peeve

          I’m so sad for you. I’ve come close many times with my sickly avatar puppy. It’s awful. Second round on me.

        • Qitkat

          So sad for your loss, have gone through this three times, and it never ever gets easier. Hugs from a fellow BK.

      • 3boysful

        Congrats, DD! I have fond memories of highlighting the bar review books around the pool . . .

      • MilaXX

        WOOT! Congrats! /

      • MisScarlett

        Congrats!!!

      • Cheryl

        Mazel tov! Good for you. And of course this is the best place to celebrate our triumphs (and mourn our losses.)

      • Qitkat

        Congratulations DD! I never made it to the lounge before the ep tonight, so missed your virtual party. Cheers!

    • Musicologie

      I’m excited that Sally was in that preview.

      • Cheryl

        It looks like Don disappoints her. Again.

    • 3boysful

      I must confess that my Mad Style indoctrination must have been thorough and complete: I DID yell “Blue and green!” at some point last week, and my husband and eldest son, who were in the room but not watching, looked at me as if I had finally gone over the edge.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Matthew-Vella/666619877 Matthew Vella

      Can someone explain to me what the T LOunge is?

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        Just an open thread for people to talk their way through the latest Mad Men.

      • MilaXX

        Like our own private twitter party where we can use all out TLo’isms

    • UsedtobeEP

      Hi everyone. I actually made it. Will be working up until ten, so I get to drop in for a change. DD, congrats. SRQ, I am sorry about the doggie. I have done that myself five times in two years. All of my pets were the same age.

      • SRQkitten

        Five times in two years? OMG EP, don’t know how you did it.

        • UsedtobeEP

          My reply disappeared…Anyway, 17 year-old-sick kitty and 20-year-old dog were hardest. First and last to go. And both times, when it was done, I realized I had waited too long, for their sakes. You are a loving parent. (So not exactly the same age, but all either very old or very sick.)

          • SRQkitten

            It’s hard when they’ve been with you so long. No matter how much you can try to prepare yourself and know its coming, it just is not easy. Knowing it’s the right decision doesn’t make it easier,

    • SRQkitten

      Re: spoilers – did anyone else hear Matt W. on Fresh Air and his explanation as to why the next week previews were always so bland? He basically said they pay for the music at the end for a reason and if he could just not do the previews at all he would but AMC insisted so they’re basically as useless as possible (my paraphrasing probably badly here).

      • EveEve

        what does that mean about paying for the music? what is the reason and what does it have to do with previews? i am confused as usual…

        • SRQkitten

          The music they use to close each episode is usually pretty carefully chosen, I forget how much they paid for the Beatles tune in one of the episodes last season. I’m not sure if I can post links here but if you go to the fresh air website, they may still have the interview up. He doesn’t give anything away about this season though, no surprise there.

          • JasmineAM

            They apparently paid $250,000 for that Beatles song.

      • Lauren Hoffa

        That is really interesting, and it definitely makes sense. The previews are just a series of images pieced together anyway to let us know who may/may not be appearing on screen.

      • MisScarlett

        Yes! I heard that too. He said he talked them into “27 seconds” of just credits/music, then when the previews finally start you get total ambiguity. He said he didn’t feel like viewers WANT to know what’s happening next, and AMC thinks they want to know everything in advance.

        • MilaXX

          Actually we want just a bit in between. Enough to be a tease, not give away the entire plot. I wish MW would unclench a little.

    • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

      Darlings, we just want to jump in here and say if you’re not watching “Orphan Black” on BBC America, you’re really missing out. We just watched last night’s episode and LITERALLY screamed at the end. We haven’t watched a show with this many surprises and twists since Lost. It’s HIGHLY T Lo-recommended.

      And it’s too late in the season for us to start recapping it now. Maybe next season.

      • MilaXX

        I adore pretty much all things BBC and I’m watching. Haven’t watched last night’s ep yet.

        • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

          I will say nothing to spoil but this is me, the last 3 minutes of the episode:

          “Oh shit. Oh shit. Oh shit. Oh shit oh shit oh shit oh — F*** ME!!!!!!”

          T.

          • janierainie

            Well I’m definitely watching now!!

            • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

              Okay, but start from the beginning. It’s meticulously plotted and keeps building on its own story and mythology with each week – and without being heavyhanded about it. We just slowly found ourselves getting sucked in.

            • Cheryl

              How do we find missed episodes? And is there a Lounge for that? (This should be my signature question every time you reference a new series!)

            • MilaXX

              It’s a BBC show so there’s probably not more than 6 episodes to the season

            • racrobin

              If you’re in the states and happen to have Comcast / Xfinity all the episodes are free on demand. It looks like there’s 8 1 hour episodes. There goes my week!

            • Pennymac

              Whoo Hoo! I’m only keeping Comcast for as long as this Mad Men season lasts. That will give me the chance to watch.

      • Wellworn

        I had no idea there was anything on BBC America except Top Gear and Dr. Who. Will have to look for it.

      • bxbourgie

        I’ll be searching for this immediately!

      • JillK

        I love that show. Tatiana Maslany is really good at playing multiple roles.

    • tresfabuleux

      Love this bar, and it’s not too far from my office! Will definitely have to visit in real life some time.

    • Lauren Hoffa

      What will the blue/green mean?! And more Sally Draper! Only 1 hour and 20 more minutes!!

    • Logo Girl

      I’m just hoping that it will be an office-heavy episode and not a Don’s-dreary-pointless-relationships-heavy episode.

    • http://viridianpostcard.blogspot.com/ viridian61

      Glad to be here,glass of wine in hand, catching up with all things TLo . Interestingly, disqus automatically capitalized TLo correctly.

    • Logo Girl

      I just thought I’d mention it here as well as anywhere, but thanks, TLo. A few stray bits of information learned on this site just got me a perfect rating at work. Love you guys.

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      I’m here too, but foregoing the whiskey for the glass of 2004 Rioja at my side. I was thinking about a song by Stephen Sondheim re last week’s episode. It’s called “Move On”. These lines especially resonated: Stop worrying if your vision is true/Let others make that decision/They usually do/You keep moving on.

      Don predates Sondheim but he needs to follow that advice, as Peggy said.

      But enough analysis. Congrats Democracy Diva! Have some champagne on me tonight!

      • Damien W

        There must be a nugget of wisdom in West Side Story, Gypsy, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Anyone Can Whistle, Do I Hear a Waltz?…(all done pre-1968)

        • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

          How about “Rose’s Turn”?

          • lilyvonschtupp

            Or “Dumbo”

            “Well I be done seen ’bout everything ’till I see an elephant fly!”

            (btw, I’m black and its a shame that this song doesn’t offend me)

    • Scimommy

      Sigh. I want to be in an actual, non-virtual bar with other BKs watching Mad Men and yelling out “Blue and green!”

    • Damien W

      I’m so torn. I love the live party, but I also like to get lost in the episode while I’m watching it. I think I prefer to wait till the 11PM rerun to start typing for real…

    • NDC_IPCentral

      A beer and very late dinner of soup and salad after last night’s big entertaining for my walking girlfriends and their spouses. 9 hours of cooking, or was it 10? I’m off to watch and nibble. Will post… maybe, if I run from the den back here into the study. If not…. I’ll enjoy the comments later.

      • Cheryl

        But…I need you. And nothing else will do.

        • NDC_IPCentral

          I’ll send you a care package of leftovers from last night: carbonnades a la flammande, mashed potatoes, steamed asparagus, green salad with spring vegetables and lemon chiffon pie with a gingersnap crust. Nothing else will do.

      • UsedtobeEP

        Well, you must be feeling excellent!

    • td9295

      Hey SQ. So sorry about your dog’s passing. hugs. Democracy Diva way to go!! Congratulations and good luck on the bar exam. I’ve got to tuck in my kids before I watch MM faithfully. so I may be a few minutes behind.

    • Damien W

      Umm…Ken?

    • alula_auburn

      hee hee “your face looks like a bag of walnuts.”

      eta: boo, Don, no yelling at Ken.

    • MisScarlett

      Only Don would leave a trail of cigarette butts as his calling card.

    • Cheryl

      Ooh, Dawn is wearing the latest farmhouse chic — a pink gingham dress. But is that appropriate office wear?

      • the_archandroid

        I LOVED her clothing there, it’s such a flattering look for her, I think it’s meant to highlight her competence and overall with-it ness in the face of Don’s … total dissolution

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=639062430 Sara Padilla

          the drop waist with the full skirt reminded me of the kind of dresses Peggy used to wear.

      • lilyvonschtupp

        The dress looks kinda cheap but she looks cute in it. She’s also in a color completely apart from everyone else so she really stands out from everyone else.

    • alula_auburn

      Is it wrong that I laughed out loud at “I’m feeling a lot of emotions, too,”?

    • MilaXX

      Why is Don all caught up in feelings?

    • bxbourgie

      Clearly Chevy isn’t going as planned. Neither is the end of Don’s affair. I’m trying to figure out if I’m supposed to FEEL something because Don’s feeling something for Sylvia, but I could care less. More SCDPCGC. Less Don and his affairs. Who cares.

      • PastryGoddess

        I’m so sick and tired of Don and Sylvia

        enough already

      • Maria Gabriella Dutari

        Does anybody know whats the name of the office after the merger??

    • Damien W

      Silvia is like a substitute for Matt Weiner’s voice, explaining the psychiatry behind Don’s cheating. It’s a little…hammer & nailed.

    • http://www.facebook.com/judy.julian77 Judy Julian

      Sylvia in blue.

      • alula_auburn

        But not the crisp, ironed, vaguely-nun like dark blue.

        • Cheryl

          She’s wearing a blue dress while on a green phone. She’s cheating on Ma Bell!

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      Don begging a woman? Talk about your role reversal.

    • MilaXX

      UGH! It’s getting so I regret Don flashbacks

    • http://www.facebook.com/judy.julian77 Judy Julian

      Has Don got TB?

      • Lisa_Co

        Has he got lung cancer?

        • siriuslover

          that’s what i was thinking. I also have expected there to be blood in his napkin.

    • MisScarlett

      Jon Hamm is an awesome actor. You can literally see him becoming a teenage Dick Whitman again before your eyes when he gets knocked off his Don Draper pedestal.

    • http://www.facebook.com/crystal.harnden Crystal Harnden

      Way to go, Sylvia!

    • http://www.facebook.com/judy.julian77 Judy Julian

      Bobby in blue and green!

    • Damien W

      Whoa! Thin Betty!

    • http://www.facebook.com/judy.julian77 Judy Julian

      And Betty is blonde again!

      • Perditax

        Thank gawd!

    • MilaXX

      WOW! How much time has passed? Frank went quickly.

      • siriuslover

        Pancreatic cancer is horrible now even with all the treatments we have. I can imagine in the late 60s, people died fairly quickly from it.

        • urbantravels

          People die very quickly from it now, unfortunately. The most common forms of pancreatic cancer are very aggressive and they usually aren’t detected before they’ve started to spread. I’ve known people who were dead within a few weeks of diagnosis. I don’t think the survival rates have actually improved substantially since the 60s.

    • Damien W

      I never would have thought that Harry Hamlin would be such a great fit for this cast, but he really is.

      • MilaXX

        I was thinking the same thing.

      • alula_auburn

        I giggled when he practically skipped up the stairs. Maybe someone will do a double GIF of Pete going down and him going up.

    • nosniveling

      uh oh, Dr Feelgood!

    • MilaXX

      what stimulant? adrenaline?

      • Lisa_Co

        I betting Desoxyn or dexadrine. Too early for cocaine.

        • MilaXX

          sounds about right

    • PastryGoddess

      Hi Everyone,

      I’m late, but I have cake and wine to share

    • MilaXX

      Is this episode sponsored by Pink Floyd?

      • EveEve

        Dark side of the “moon.”. Tee hee

        • MilaXX

          okay, okay, okay, you’ll feel a little pin prick….

          • EveEve

            It’s cable – show us his ass!!!

            • siriuslover

              you know Jon Hamm is protective of his privacy!

    • Lisa_Co

      Stan has worn green almost every episode. His power color?

    • bxbourgie

      I’m loving Harry Hamlin. Like LOVING him.

      • http://www.facebook.com/judy.julian77 Judy Julian

        Me, too! He’s a great addition to the cast.

      • lilyvonschtupp

        He “outRogered” Roger!

    • alula_auburn

      Oh, good, because we needed another iteration of Don’s madonna/whore issues. Literally.

    • Scimommy

      Oh god, what’s in those shots?! Amphetamines?

      • EveEve

        Yes

        • lilyvonschtupp

          I thought it was a B12 shot. But I don’t know jack about drugs.

          • Aurumgirl

            They are never just B12. They weren’t back then, and I’ve noticed they’ve made a reappearance in Hollywood. They very likely aren’t simple B12 now, either.

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      Asthma? He’s not sick enough for TB. Plus a history of TB would have kept him out of the army.

      I think the good doctor is giving them speed.

      • M. H. Leader

        I think it’s lung cancer–not TB. He’s a heavy smoker.

        • Eric Stott

          A Psychosomatic illness is possible – his brain is screwed.

    • http://www.facebook.com/judy.julian77 Judy Julian

      Oh, no….Looks like Ted’s secretary is next on Don’s list. And she’s in blue.

      • lilyvonschtupp

        First thing I thought. Another innocent secretary lost in the woods for Big Bad Don to prey upon.

    • http://www.facebook.com/mary.nease Mary Nease

      Don totally knows about Peggy and Ted. He knows an affair when he sees one.

    • UsedtobeEP

      Dang, I was on the phone. What are they getting injected with? And are they nuts?

      • Eric Stott

        A vitamin complex and “Mild stimulant” shot – I’m guessing amphetamines.& who knows what else.

      • Lisa_Co

        Some methamphetamine probably. Having just rewatched “The Panic in Needle Park” (& read the book on which the movie was based) I have learned alot about drugs in the ’60′s. Injectable amphetamines were so cheap and easy to buy most local bodegas sold them pretty openly. Cocaine was available, too, but very expensive, harder to find and usually snorted not injected. And of course, “diet pills” were all the rage but again what we’re seeing here is something injectable.

    • the_archandroid

      I’m kind of in love with the Stan vs. Cutler footrace…I’m kind of in love with Cutler to be honest.

      • PastryGoddess

        That is quite possibly the best thing since sliced bread and nutella

    • http://twitter.com/mxmstrmnn max mustermann

      I’m so lost right now.

    • Pennymac

      Shoot, I was going to avoid the lounge and just concentrate on the show, and then they brought in Dr. Feelgood, and I just had to see what the other BK’s were saying.

    • Peeve

      Love Peggy’s dress. But the boob buttons are a little much.

    • nosniveling

      Max Jacobson, code named Dr. Feelgood by the Secret Service, administered “vitamins”- actually methamphetamine- to JFK, Jackie, and many others. Through a shot in the butt.

      • Lisa_Co

        Yes. And it was only after several of his celebrity patients suffered adverse effects from his shots that amphetamines finally came under scrutiny from law enforcement in the early 1970′s.

    • Scimommy

      Go Ginsberg! Staying clean! Peggy too, I assume.

      • lilyvonschtupp

        Nah, Peggy got drunk after the funeral.

    • Damien W

      Death and life-threatening behavior, all over an episode called The Crash…subtle!

    • nnbb

      Having worked at an agency that licenses music, I cannot fathom how much they paid for a Beatles song!! I think about it at the end of each show. And during every single commercial I ever see… “How much did they PAY for that???” It’s a curse. I texted “Red Whore Dress” to my friend last weekend as soon as Sylvia opened that Saks box.

      • SRQkitten

        I wish I could remember the amount they paid for the Beatles song but it was a fair amount for the short bit it was played.

        • StephanieLovesTLo

          I think I remember reading at the time that it was $250K.

    • M. H. Leader

      These guys are on speed big time…

    • alula_auburn

      OMG Ken and his dancing feet!

    • Scimommy

      OH. MY. GOD. Kenny tap danced.

    • MilaXX

      okay, this is silly, but Kenny tap dancing was hilarious

    • warontara

      Late to the party, everyone, I’m sorry. …I’m feeling a lot of emotions too.

    • the_archandroid

      I’m wondering why Peggy and Ginsberg didn’t get the shot…what am I watching right now..Kenny is literally being a minstrel

    • warontara

      ZOMG can they be on drugs every week? This is hilarious.

      • PastryGoddess

        Indeed

    • bxbourgie

      Ken Cosgrove just did flaps and time steps and the entire office has lost their daggone minds.

      • Perditax

        Ken Cosgrove: can’t drive, can’t walk, can dance a little

      • PastryGoddess

        This is amazing!

      • lilyvonschtupp

        And poor Dawn caught between Don and Ken thinking, “These white folks have lost what minds they already had!”

    • Damien W

      OMG, it’s like Mad Men is doing a Family Guy parody…

          Apparently she’s someone’s daughter? Did anyone catch that?

            She’s Frank Gleason’s daughter, the deceased partner of CGC

    • PastryGoddess

      I don’t know if I can deal with this whole office on drugs. My wine does not need to come out of my nose

    • Lauren Hoffa

      What drug are they on? How intense will the crash be?!

    • Damien W

      Seeing Harry Hamlin just reminds me of the LA Law episode when Roz Shays fell down the elevator shaft.

      Yeah, this is Mad Men’s version of that ep.

    • MisScarlett

      • Perditax

        A car crash thanks to drunk clients

        • http://twitter.com/amndad amanda lynn

          duh. yes. sorry. thank you!

      • MilaXX

        the scene at the beginning was him with the chevy guys. They were joy riding and crashed the car

      • Damien W

        Beginning of the ep, they showed him driving with a bunch of drunk Chevy execs in Detroit, and they caused him to crash the car.

      • Cheryl

        He was “entertaining” Chevy execs. They were roaring drunk and while he was driving, one of them covered his eyes. CRASH!

    • Perditax

      Seems Don has no problem hanging up on Megan…

          Ginsburg is throwing syringes? Dr. Feelgood must have left some behind.

          • lilyvonschtupp

            And loved the convo during Ginzo’s turn at Stan:
            CGC1: But you hate him!
            Ginzo: And I hate apples!

            Ginzo was really on fire with the one-liners this epi

          • urbantravels

            They were throwing X-acto knives fished out of the pencil cups. All creative offices have those things around.

            • DesertRodent

              X-acto knives are deadly, and I have the scars to prove it.

    • Pennymac

      Good Lord, they are tripping, and its making me feel schizophrenic.

    • MilaXX

      Roger dropping acid was more entertaining

      • PastryGoddess

        I liked the part where he shows his naked ass. But I’m a pervert like that

    • Eric Stott

      I was wondering when we’d get back to the trippy 60′s

    • PowerfulBusiness

      I feel like I’m on the drug that the characters are on in this episode…so, well done Mad Men.

    • M. H. Leader

      Don Draper–Stalker

        I’m just not getting his Sylvia thing. There’s no chemistry that I can see….

      Wait…Stan finally scoring with Peggy? Yup, they’re on drugs.

        I’ve been waiting for a Stan moment.

        ooooooooh…YES, Peggy! <– FIFY

    • Scimommy

      I don’t think I’ll be able to stand up after that Peggy-Stan scene. Too perfect.

    • Damien W

      “You’ve got a great ass.” “Thank you.”

      I’m dying that was so perfect!

      • alula_auburn

        That was amazingly charming, all things considered.

    • UsedtobeEP

      That was classy, Peggy. Good for her.

    • Peeve

      What the hell????

    • http://www.facebook.com/judy.julian77 Judy Julian

      What is going on?!

    • PastryGoddess

      Peggy and Stan were bound to happen. I’m surprised it took so long

      • Damien W

        Kind of like Arnie and Roz on LA Law…bound to happen but ultimately a big mistake.

      • artsykelly

        Oh man, I just hope it actually does happen.

    • lily c

      Creepy… ?!

      What in the name of all that is unholy…the drugs have spread to Don’s home.

      • racrobin

        That sure didn’t look like your average burglar get up….

      • Damien W

        My guess is Don leaves the kitchen door open hoping that Silvia will visit, and this woman comes in regularly to make herself comfy while no one is home.

      • UsedtobeEP

        She rolled Don in the hallway while he was passed out is my guess. Stole his wallet and house keys. Now she’s playing it off so she can rob the place. Or Don is dreaming the whole thing, cause how did she get in the building? Or did he stumble out and pass out? Man, I am taking what they are taking.

    • SRQkitten

      Curiouser and curiouser.

    • the_archandroid

      that’s quite the friendly home invasion there. . .

    • PastryGoddess

      I love sally draper…that is all

    • Eric Stott

      I’m wondering if this woman is a kidnapper – and possibly has some connection to the REAL Don Draper.

      • Damien W

        Interesting about the real Don Draper connection…

        • Eric Stott

          I’m doubting that now.

      • Qitkat

        That was my original thought too, but it was all just too weird to make any sense. But doesn’t it seem that someone else from the real Don’s past could surface one day, and create quite the stir?

        • Eric Stott

          I agree – I think he’s been getting away with it because it would have taken a search with a purpose for someone to find records indicating he’s a fraud. How ever, the computer age has arrived and military records are in the process of being card punched and collated. If it doesn’t come out sooner it’s going to come out if Don ever makes the mistake of using veteran’s benefits.

    • Scimommy

      I bet Don gave this Ida keys to his apartment while tripping. This is the only thing I can think of that doesn’t involve Sally also being on drugs.

      • urbantravels

        There was a fired housekeeper at the beginning of this season, remember? Not the same woman – the housekeeper appeared to be Hispanic – but that could mean a set of keys unaccounted for.

    • VanessaDK

      When did MM turn into a creepy soap opera?

      • Cheryl

        from their Twitter: “This episode is the biggest WHAT THE F EVER!”

    • PastryGoddess

      Why did we never see her in a flashback?

    • the_archandroid

      This young actor who plays dick whitman is interesting, I’m not sure if he’s trying to do his own thing or trying to channel Jon Hamm as Don Draper…

      • amanda lynn

        there’s an article on vulture about how the actor that plays young don and young michael bluth are the same person. :)

      • urbantravels

        I thought he had a few moments/gestures that suggested Don Draper. Like when Aimee/Amy points at her makeup and says “Do you like it?” he says “I do” in a very Don Draper way.

        However, it’s completely implausible that kid is ever going to grow up to look like Don Draper. Wrong face shape, wrong features.

    • MisScarlett

      How old is Dick here?

      • PastryGoddess

        Maybe 14 or 15? Don grows up to be rather tall, so I’m guessing that he hasn’t had a growth spurt yet

        • lilyvonschtupp

          When did Sally lose her innocence?

          • veriance

            when her apartment was robbed and she was held hostage by her “grandma”

            • PastryGoddess

              Yes this. I wasn’t talking about virginity, but her little kid innocence

    • PastryGoddess

      He looks like Gene, she looks like Peggy

    • VanessaDK

      I can’t watch anymore. Tell me what happens to Sally later.

      • PastryGoddess

        She’s not dead

      • Crystal

        I literally had to watch the episode twice because the first time I kept having to change the channel until I figured out she wasn’t dead. I am very invested in Sally Draper’s well being lol

    • http://twitter.com/amndad amanda lynn

      How did this con artist get past security?

      • alula_auburn

        seriously, what happened to the almost-dead guy from the premiere?

        • PastryGoddess

          You mean the one who tap danced out of Don’s office

          • racrobin

            I think alula meant the doorman at Don and Megan’s building who had a heart attack earlier in the season.

            • PastryGoddess

              Oh gotcha

      • Damien W

        I thought she might have been a cleaning woman for someone else in the building…

        • Lisa_Co

          My guess as well. That’s how she knew the apt. was occupied by “Don Draper”.

          • 3boysful

            I suspect his name was on the door somewhere, or a directory in the lobby.

      • Aurumgirl

        Would it be so hard for a black middle aged woman to pretend she’s a maid who works for people in a Park Avenue apartment building? No one would question her. The character used a stereotype to her advantage. All she’d have to do is learn who lives in the building and quote a name.

    • alula_auburn

      OK, is there anyone out there still unclear on Don’s madanna/whore issues? Like, possibly the undead zombie population that doesn’t have cable?

      Aw, Sally.

      • PastryGoddess

        no no, it’s not because the zombies don’t have cable. it’s because they don’t have brains

        • alula_auburn

          I don’t know, I think even the brainless population may have cottoned on to Don’s complex here.

      • deitybox

            It’s what Sally wanted to say when she first came in, but then caught herself.

      • PastryGoddess

        Busted out laughing

        That was the cutest and most hilarious thing. This episode was so weird I thought for one awkward moment they’d tell us that somehow Don is black or something.

      Man, they’ve done alright so far having the 1-2 black characters in the show be actual characters (for the 20 minutes of screen time they get per season) rather than caricatures, but if this woman is for real she has already veered too far into magical negro territory for me to keep pretending Matt Weiner isn’t unforgivably racist.

      • http://twitter.com/mxmstrmnn max mustermann

        But how does she know Don’s name? And Bobby?

        • nosniveling

          I thought maybe she had something to do with the fired cleaning lady.
          She didn’t know the kid’s name- she could’ve read Draper on the mail slot or something.

        • Zaftiguana

          I’m sure she learned Bobby’s name from Sally. She may have learned Don’s from something found in the apartment before Sally woke up, like a piece of mail.

    • warontara

      ……….oh Don.

    • PastryGoddess

      Surprise!!!!!!!!!

    • alula_auburn

      • sekushinonyanko

        Considering the last time we saw Megan’s boss was him and his wife making an attempt to start an orgy, and she was going out with very big hair in a very short dress it’s not that much of a leap.

    • the_archandroid

      Yes, well, you bring your son to a whorehouse…and then he sleeps with whores. kind of a 1 +1 = fun equation.

      • Crystal

        I thought that too. I was like – if you think whores are so awful… why are YOU here? And why did you bring a teenage boy to a brothel? Do you think he is Jesus or something?

    • AutumnInNY

      Megan. Step-Mother of the year.

      • PastryGoddess

        The Drapers – Family of the year

      • MerBearStare

        To be fair, Sally’s 14. My parents would have left me by myself for an evening when I was 14. It’s Don’s fault for leaving the door unlocked just in case Sylvia decided to stop by.

      • Zaftiguana

        Enh, Sally’s 14, I don’t think it’s a huge deal to leave she and a couple of other school-aged kids on their own for an hour or two till another adult gets home (which is what she thought she was doing). Unfortunately, I think it’s a bit like the cop said, it could’ve happened to anyone.

          It was a weekend and the Chevy creative team. We saw Pete, but only just barely.

      Ah yes, let me call my child and tell her that I’M THE ONE WHO IS OK. You stupid bastard

      • Aurumgirl

        To be fair, she did watch him fall to the floor, face first. She would have been upset by that. And he called to reassure her that the robbery wasn’t her fault, he took responsibility for leaving the door open when he left. So he did call to do something loving for her. I’m not ready to condemn him for actually taking responsibility for something he’d done.

        • PastryGoddess

          True enough, I’m just frustrated that the first thing out of his mouth was all about him. Also at no time did he ask her how she was doing.

    • http://www.facebook.com/judy.julian77 Judy Julian

      Now THAT was a bizarre episode.

    • sekushinonyanko

      This episode has just been laugh out loud funny. Like I don’t know what’s going on. But I do know that place DOES turn into a whorehouse every time they get a car.

      • Cheryl

        Except for that whole “Sally gets murdered” subplot.

        • sekushinonyanko

          That was definitely weird and it got really scary when Sally got caught calling the cops. But before that I was thinking it was some sort of real Don Draper thing.

          • NoGovernmentName

            The “your daddy has a gold watch…” part is what gave it away. Before that, I was sure we were going to see a young Ida in the whore house. You never know with Don, as Sally pointed out so poignantly.

            • https://twitter.com/Gayer_Than_Thou Gayer Than Thou

              I started to have a clue (in this, my first episode of Man Men ever) when Ida remarked that the TV was well and truly secured.

    • Peeve

      I’m so fucking confused right now! Oh goodie, now I get to be confused all over again!

    • Damien W

      Matt weiner should have followed Don’s closing line with Bert Cooper in the hallway, sitting at a drumkit, doing a rimshot.

      What the flick did I just watch? And am about to watch 2 more times in a row?

      Oh no he didn’t just say that

        • MissKimP

          And all three of them were wearing kerchiefs tied around their heads.

      • Lisa_Co

        Also Aimée’s blue headscarf=Sylvia’s blue headscarf (at the beginning of the episode when she’s in her robe). Now that I wrote that, maybe that’s how Don fantasizes Sylvia dresses in the morning but not actually how she looks.

        Oh, I thought that was in reference to calling the Doctor. But considering the following spoon whipping, you’re probably right.

    • Damien W

      I think this was Matt Weiner showing us what Mad Men would have been like if it were a sitcom.

      CGC writer: “In what kind of guy’s family does the father buy his son a car?”
      (Pete walks by like Ted Baxter)
      Ginsberg: “This guy’s.”
      (cue canned laughter)

      So Don’s mother was a whore, and she died. And then he gets a stepmother, and we find out she’s a whore. And then he gets sick and is taken care of by a whore. Like a circle of life of sex workers. So is all of this shit trying to say that Don was so surrounded by them he thinks that whore and woman are synonymous? And if he thinks they are synonymous, then why does he get shitty about them all the time?

      • PastryGoddess

        And then the whore who took care of him left. But not before outing his cherry popping so then Step-mother whore abuses him yet again

        • sekushinonyanko

          This is like how they get all convoluted about Jason on True Blood. I hope this trend in television of male playa characters needing complicated back stories to explain their banging around wears itself clean out by the end of this season.

          • PastryGoddess

            YES! I’m perfectly fine with the I have dick=I like sex explanations.

            • sekushinonyanko

              I feel like feeling the need to have a ton of this sort of stuff is missing the point entirely of why so many women with such behavior have such fucked up backstories to begin with. Women are punished for it, so most women don’t screw around like Don Draper without some sort of motivation. Men are rewarded for it, and really, the question of “why would someone do something they are rewarded for?” almost resolves itself in the asking. Because they are rewarded for it. Giving a backstory for why a guy likes sexing around is like giving a backstory where he likes money. Oh wait! With boy!Don being poor they’re doing that too…

          • Laylalola

            Yes, I’m sure some of the male banging around has to do with (gasp) the key men in their lives.

    • Tee

      I had a contact trip from watching tonight’s show. I don’t think I can watch it again without the Monday AND Wednesday recaps! I’m going to lie down in my office. It’s bettet than lying down in the cellar.

    • EveEve

      Jason Grote co-wrote this episode. It seemed like it was intended as comic relief after the relentless darkness of the season so far. There were some funny lines, but unfortunately, using Dr. Feelgood (look up Max Jacobson) administering amphetamines was just too easy a crutch – stupid easy. Disappointing.

      • Qitkat

        There was so much comic relief that I was afraid it might all be a dream ala Dallas, or Don having a bad trip. What a goofy, bizarre episode. Not up to Mad Men standards. I’m glad I don’t have to recap it, this is one I’d like to forget. At least Don made no move whatsoever on Silvia in the elevator. Ken’s dance was the best part. Peggy was stellar. Everyone else embarrassed themselves, except Ted, and Sally and bros.

        • Logo Girl

          Yeah, exactly. But I couldn’t figure out who’s bad dream it was. It almost seemed like a collective bad dream, like it was going to go in some weird Buñuel-esque direction.

          • Aurumgirl

            Or Jean Luc Godard. After all, the Situationists have been striking all over France (with Sylvia and Arnie’s son!), and one of the things to come out of that was the French New Wave.

            • Logo Girl

              Good point.

    • lilyvonschtupp

      Ah yes, back to the reasons I hate Betty!

      No “This stranger could’ve hurt my children! My children’s lives were in danger!”

      Instead we get”: “Harry’s running for office! What about MY reputation? ME ME ME!!!!”

      • http://www.facebook.com/AdriannaGrezak Adrianna Grężak

        I thought she meant that he has a lot of responsibility and stress right now, whereas Don always acts as if he’s the only one struggling at his job/career

        • lilyvonschtupp

          Nah, son. It was just Betty hurling out some vitriolic one-liners at Don and Megan to make herself feel her usual superior self.:o)

    • lilyvonschtupp

      Oh, and by the way: you just flushed the toilet in my head.

    • PastryGoddess

      Funny enough there is a new book about Dr. Feelgood coming out at the end of the month.

    • kipper

      I no longer care about Don or Dick’s issues with women, really.

    • NDC_IPCentral

      Y’know, the more I think about the episode, the more unclean I feel – as though I was the voyeur, secretly observing a lot of sordidness. i haven’t felt this about any of the prior episodes, but this one….. Dick consigned to the cellar with his respiratory illness, then getting snuck into Amy’s bedroom for care and exploitation. Beaten by his step-mom. Don mooning in the back-stairs for Sylvia, putting her in jeopardy with Arnie.

      Ken, whoring himself out to the Chevy folks (and as a sister of a recently retired GM exec, that pains me to write) and nearly becoming road-kill. Don, abasing himself on the phone with Sylvia and then losing it in the office (Dawn, you are a saint.). The quack Dr. Feel-Good shooting up all the guys who then decompensate and careen through a Lost Weekend. Lost in so many ways.

      The Grandma Ida caper, which could have had far more horrifying consequences. That was so unsettling. Sally, your instincts were right, but… man, you’re just a little girl getting conned. By more cons than one.

      I could go on, but the dis-ease I feel will make for a restless sleep. Off to ponder, BKs.

      • Qitkat

        Hey NDC, I agree with your thoughts completely. Very well stated. Last week’s lounge found me expounding on the dread I was feeling after that episode, and now you’ve completely nailed it with the voyeur/sordidness bits. My husband watched with me tonight, which was a big mistake as he has not followed the show. I think he thinks I am totally off my rocker in recommending MM so highly in the past. Very unsettling. And more spiraling downwards to come I feel certain.

      • http://frederickvegetarian.wordpress.com sixgables

        Agreed. At the end I was just sitting there, feeling unsettled and oogy. I never like when a show is filmed to make ME have the trip as well. All the way back to when Ma Ingalls took too much pain medicine.

      • guest2visits

        Agree. I watched it twice, just to see if I missed the threads that made the episode more coherent.
        It leaves an impression; and even if it’s unsettling, it was the weird, scary-sad, ‘trip’ that it was meant to be, I guess. Abandonment, irresponsibility, and selfish indulgence…. when more then the usual players are working those issues; the house comes down. For a moment I was sure Don would refuse the shot – pfft… of course not.
        His last words were scathingly on the mark, considering he was completely trapped in the ‘whorehouse’ loop himself.

    • sekushinonyanko

      Well we’ve finally put the nail in the “Megan is Maria Von Trappe” coffin, haven’t we? When she’s supposed to be watching the kids we instead get her out on the town working in a short dress. It’s like we all live in Don’t head now.

      • NDC_IPCentral

        Your typo “Don’t” instead of “Don’s” is unintentionally very appropriate.

      • MissKimP

        They are Don’s kids, not hers, so I don’t think there is any “supposed to be” about it.

        • sekushinonyanko

          At the time Megan was the one who was supposed to be responsible for them. Whether they are hers or not isn’t really the point.

          • Cheryl

            Don was supposed to be responsible for them; they had worked out an agreement that he would be home in time for her to leave. It’s not the first time Don has put the children out of his consciousness — it seems unless they are right in front of him, he has no thoughts of them, at all.

          • MissKimP

            I haven’t re-watched the episode, so I could be misremembering, but from Don and Megan’s phone conversation (“Where are you!?”) it was clear that she already had plans for that evening and that Don was supposed to be back before she had to leave, He knew she had plans but thought she should cancel because he was working late.

    • lilyvonschtupp

      I have a good idea that TLo’s gonna hate this epi because of the repeating “mommy/whore” theme.

      • Perditax

        Less of a theme, more a stick they’re beating the audience round the head with!

    • pamasutra

      Did David Lynch direct this episode?

      • http://twitter.com/mxmstrmnn max mustermann

        Did anybody?

        • Lilyana_F

          Lol

      • MilaXX

        no because there were no little people dancing.

      Lieutenant Mustard: “CHEVY” IS SPELLED WRONG!

      Man this epi is full of some great one-liners.

    • joything

      Hunch: Peggy takes a deep breath, invents a whole new planet of “big girl pants,” and out-Drapers Don Draper for Chevy.

    • John Gregor

      This episode was somewhere between “Brazil” and “I wear the cheese. It does not wear me.”

      • Jessi03

        Thumbs up for the Cheese Man!

    • Maria Gabriella Dutari

      This episode was so crazy that Betty dropping 30 pounds and going back to her safe blond is the least relevant thing. Also, Roger now seems like a saint compared to Jim Cutler.

      • ccinnc

        Hilarious that Cutler didn’t stop watching just because Peggy caught him.

        • Eric Stott

          She didn’t “catch” him – he invited her over to watch too.

    • eb1966

      Was Stan’s killed-in-action cousin the same one he brought to Don’s birthday party in “A Little Kiss?” I’m thinking yes.

      • MilaXX

        Be nice continuity if it was.

    • MissAmynae

      Initial reaction: “so……that happened…..”

    • artsykelly

      Oh man, I have been up all night writing papers and I will be refreshing TLo all morning to see what you have to say about this episode.

      Personally, I loved it.

    • Laylalola

      Cutler and Sterling really are two sides of the same coin, aren’t they.

      • the_archandroid

        I think that Cutler is the bad side, at the very least his breath is bad, and It’s difficult for me to see Roger peeping on someone having sex….especially if that person is the daughter of his deceased partner. Cutler strikes me as the version of Roger who never had any limits imposed on him.

    • Laylalola

      Do they not have a name yet because this firm isn’t going to make it?

      Elizabeth Moss is on Kelly and Michael wearing that Mary Katrantzou dress a lot of the lady celebs have been wearing, and she looks GREAT. Hair is still short, but blonde.
