Prefatory comment: I am thoroughly familiar with the first three seasons of Mad Men, but have not yet seen any episodes of season 4. As I said in my message on the main page of this group, I don't…Continue

The season six finale is coming up who's excited a lot of secrets were reveled.

It's sad that there's only two seasons left of mad men. But since season six takes place in December 1967- 1968, season seven will probably take place in late 1968-1969. Since the show takes place in the 1960s it would make sense to end in 1969 its like a novel of the sixties. But there's a possibility of time jumping.

Sally may use it to get what she wants later.
Comment by Bob Giraldi on June 10, 2013 at 1:39pm

Absolutely.  Plus, now she has something she can hold over his head, so she has power over him.  I'm sure as she gets older she'll figure out ways to use it.

Last nights eposide wasn't Sally's first time being exposed to adult things. She gets caught smoking by Betty, in season 4 asks the baby sitter if she and Don are doing more than seeing each other, gets caught doing adult things at at a sleepover. She goes to the award cremony as Roger Sterling's "date" only to peek in at Roger and Marie doing adult things. And she even gets her 1st peroid on her 1st date. Talk about a poor kid who saw too many adult things. However kids these days see way more adult things than sally draper did. Last night eposide may have put don and Sally's relationship in jeopardy.

Well she sure has the power to do that now.  Its kind of  a mirror image of Don/Dick at about the same age looking through the hole in the wall and seeing his foster/adoptive mother acceeding to the demands of the owner of the brothel they went to live in.

Don Draper finally gets caught by Sally Draper could Sally be the one who ends it all for Don?

Love this show. Also, Banana Republic has come out with a Mad Men line of clothing for spring based on the clothes featured on the show...of course to really buy the clothes on the show you'd have to shop at brook's brothers

Great show. Why more here are not into it is beyond me too. We don't have cable either, we buy them on Itunes, and they are worth every penny.

I'm surprised that this group has not attracted more attention on this site. It seems to me that the show Mad Men continually raises questions of which conceptions of the obligations and prerogatives of a man are defensible and which ones ones merely parochial.

 

I just started watching the show last year. I don't get cable television networks, so I have only been able to watch it on DVD. I have seen the first three seasons, every episode at least twice, so I know that much of the show pretty well, but I have not yet seen any episode of season 4, the most recent one. Right now I am making my way through my DVDs again--I am now near the end of season 2--in preparation for the release of the DVD set of season 4 next month (according to Amazon.com).
