Don't you dare go below that jump if you haven't seen the episode.


Great as usual. The end is depressing. I feel like I've seen Don walk this path already. I understand that, given who he is, he has to walk it again. But, I hate watching the same story again--or feeling like I'm about to. It's like watching McNulty fall off the wagon. Again. It's not like I thought he was "reformed" at the end of last season. Just for tricks, I would have liked to see this one go different. Maybe Don could be after the one woman in 1963 who didn't find him irresistible. Who am I kidding. There's no such thing.

I'm aware that more than that happened--much more. This isn't an episode recap. I leave it for you guys to run through the rest.
