Anonymous asked: omg! this finale. i'm so...i've BEEN dealing with a ~hot teeth~ for AGES and i just keep waiting the pain to go away. when i saw this episode i just felt so weird. i totally get the metaphore. you use physical pain to hide from the emotional pain, like you punishing yourself to deal with the guilty. i can relate to that

bloggyspaceprincess asked: Was Don watching a screen test Megan did specifically for Butler shoes or was it one she had prepared awhile ago? My roommate and I were debating this.
Anonymous asked: Hold on, whoever said that Don's hallucinations of his brother are irrelevant, is sorely mistaken!! Don's coldness and carelessness was the direct result of two people committing suicide. I believe it was his subconscious reminding him of that.

Mad Men’s John Slattery on the Finale, Roger and...
John Slattery likely won’t live down his final scene in last night’s Mad Men season finale any time soon, but, as he told Vulture today, his glorious, LSD-inspired bare-assed moment was a more symbolic expression of the journey Roger Sterling has made this season. And it’s true: Sterling has gone from bullying Pete Campbell to encouraging Don’s comeback, from traumatizing Sally Draper (albeit...
