Mad Men continued with the heavy and foreboding theme that ran through last week’s episode, tackling political and personal problems without much closure. The lead up to the 1968 Presidential election, riots in Chicago, and the Vietnam war served as the backdrop for Don’s departure to L.A., Joan’s assertion of her power, and Jim Cutler’s strange power play in the office.
It was one of the more surreal Mad Men episodes (although this season on the whole has been the trippiest ever), with Don, maybe, seeing dead people? Is Mad Men turning into Lost, or am I just crazy?
Madness aside, the clothes this episode took a fun turn as Don, Roger, and Harry headed off to L.A. in their business-casual ensembles, while Joan and Peggy pulled out their brights to woo Avon. Click through to see!
