|Roger rocking a stache in Mad Men Severence S7 E8|
Equally disappointing is Roger's return to his womanizing, though he seems to have cut back to one at a time, telling the ladies above he'll have to take one of them home. I was imagining he and Mona rekindling their marriage. Based on last nights episode that is not the case. Further it looks like McCann has more of a hand in the management of the agency with the firing of Ken. They said Ken had to go and out he went. Of course Ken can hold a grudge with the best of them and will be making his former employers lives miserable as the new head of accounts at Dow Chemical. So much for that novel.
|Mad Men Severence S7 E8 Peggy and Joan|
Peggy seems to be carrying on in her usual fashion though she still seems to be looking for love. I would love to see this thing with Stevie work out for her. She can be quite mercurial and a guy who will take veal when he ordered lasagna may be just the ticket for her.
Finally, we got to find out what happened to Rachael Menken. She got everything, the job, the husband, the kids and then she died of Leukemia way too young. So sad and probably just an affirmation for Don to keep "living like there's no tomorrow, because there isn't"
Overall it was kind of a bummer. No one really seems happy. The Peggy Lee song IS THAT ALL THERE IS, was definitely fitting. The entire cast seems nonplussed by their achievements and rewards. Hoping things take a turn for the brighter next week...
