Mad Men Season 5 epi 10 Christmas Waltz

So tonight's episode opened with Lane getting the bad news that he owes the English $8000 in taxes. I'm a bit confused how he let this happen??? But there it is. Now Lane is up to his eyeballs in lies. He's embezzled from SCDP, lied to his wife, committed forgery and basically made a mess of things. I hope he can make it all right before it blow up in his face. Lane doesn't seem like the kind of guy who would fair well in prison.

So happy to see Kinsey back. He's a disaster and still stabbing in the dark trying to find his place in the world. The Hari Krishna stuff was interesting. Funny that there was a time people needed a cheat sheet for the lyrics to their song. I love that Harry has some kind of allegiance to Paul, and even though he'll "have sex" with his girlfriend, he really wants to help him. I don't know what will happen to Paul out in LA, hopefully he'll steer clear of all the cults, especially Manson.

I'm hopefully that Joan has turned the corner. She started the episode in her sad brown dress telling Roger to take a hike and then screaming at the truly inept receptionist. But after a night out with Don she returns to the office in a leafy green dress of rebirth. Would'nt you just love to see Don throw Megan over for Joan...I know it will never happen but they could rule the world together. Love Don's flowers from Ali Khan.

Finally, dear sweet Roger. I would have loved to have seen the scenes of him celebrating Pearl Harbor Day with his fellow WWII vets. I think he really feels something for Kevin and Joan. I don't think Joan wants him back, but maybe now that she is healing she'll reconsider. I hope so.
