Last week’s Mad Men found Joan (Christina Hendricks) quitting when the sexism became too much, and because Roger (John Slattery) told her to take the deal. That burned me up. Don (Jon Hamm) quits too (I think). I mean, he walked out right in the middle of a meeting and drove away. So if he didn’t quit, he’s fired. First stop? Diana’s husband’s house. There, despite the false story, he was made. And it was awkward. The driving made me feel like he was in danger. First, when he had a vision of Bert Cooper (Robert Morse) in his passenger seat, and I thought for sure he was going to run off the road. And second, when he picked up a scraggly hitchhiker. It made me Google David Berkowitz or Charles Manson to see if the fictional crossing of those paths could be a historically accurate possibility.

Last week on Mad Men, the gang found out that McCann Erickson “forgot” to pay the lease and everyone has to move to their offices. Don (John Hamm) tried a last ditch effort to separate themselves, by offering to go run the California branch. At least this way, the conflict clients won’t be affected. It’s shot down immediately, with assurances that this is better for them. When they finally tell the office at the end, it’s like they already ceased to exist.

Mad Men
Season 7 Episode 11 “Time & Life”

AMC
Air Date: Sunday, April 26th, 2015, 10pm

Mad Men 7.11 “Time & Life” review is coming right up. First, Let’s recap last week’s episode.

Don (Jon Hamm) has to sell his place, but it’s not like selling product in advertising. His realtor is frustrated because it’s so empty and sad. He had a bunch of small sad moments in this episode – Peggy (Elizabeth Moss) yells at him, he fires Mathis (Trevor Einhorn) because he blew it with a client and then insulted Don for it, and then the last shot in the hallway outside of his apartment – depressing.

Joan (Christina Hendricks) meets someone in California who is so not interested in dating someone with kids, having been there, done that. Not really a problem since they are across the country, so she lies about her son. He shows up in NY. She tells the truth and he doesn’t want it. But then he does.

Mad Men
Season 7 Episode 10 “The Forecast”

Written by Jonathan Igla and Matthew Weiner
Created by Matthew Weiner
Starring Jon Hamm, Elizabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks, January Jones, Vincent Kartheiser, John Slattery, Rich Sommer, Aaron Staton, Kiernan Shipka, Kevin Rahm
AMC
Air Date: Sunday, April 19th, 2015, 10pm

It’s almost time to say goodbye to this exquisitely made period drama. There are only three episodes left til the finale of Mad Men. Before that happens though, let’s recap last week’s episode and review this week’s.

Don (Jon Hamm) had a rough time of it last week. Megan (Jessica Pare) flew in to negotiate divorce terms, and left with a million dollars (which he gave her), and all his furniture (which he didn’t). Well… that part was her angry mother. He found and lost his waitress. SHE rejected him because she must be bananas. Don stared with longing at the family picture Betty (January Jones), Henry (Christopher Stanley), and the kids made. A new photographer, Pima (guest star Mimi Rogers) scores with Stan (Jay R. Ferguson) but not with Peggy (Elizabeth Moss). Harry (Rich Sommer) is a sleazeball, expecting sex from Megan for help with her career, then bad mouths her to Don (who does not care) later. I wanted to kill Harry. The end of that episode with Don standing in the middle of his empty apartment was jarring.
