Mad Men Season 6 Finale
The following contains spoilers from Sunday’s Mad Men Season 6 finale. If you haven’t seen it, scoot! Everyone else, read on.

After Ken’s shooting and Abe’s stabbing, Mad Men fans might’ve expected the AMC drama’s sixth season to close with another random act of violence.

But the carnage that took place at the end of the “In Care Of” was of a different sort altogether: Fed up with his antics, the SC&P partners ousted Don from the company he helped create and entertained the idea of replacing him with someone from competing firm Dancer Fitzgerald.

Elsewhere in the episode:

• Pre-ouster, a drunken night in jail led Don to cut down on his drinking and plan a fresh start with Megan in California. But when Ted needed a quick out (see next bullet), Draper handed him SC&P’s West Coast operation and then gave a painfully honest recounting of his childhood to some highly uncomfortable Hershey’s Chocolate reps. At home, Megan — who’d quit To Have and To Hold to move west — was quite displeased with her husband.

• Sally was suspended from boarding school for drinking, leading Betty to tell Don that their divorce was reponsible for their children’s problems. Don and Sally later shared a moment when he brought her, Bobby and Gene to see the whorehouse where he grew up.

• Peggy and Ted slept together and talked of sharing their lives, but Chaough later thought better of leaving his wife and family. He skedaddled to the Golden State, leaving a bitter Peggy in his wake.

Pete’s mother married Manolo (?!) then was lost at sea while both were on a cruise. Bob swore he knew nothing about it. Bob also made Pete look bad in front of the Chevy guys, which got Campbell booted from his position in Detroit. As he made plans to join SC&P’s California arm, Trudy noted, “You’re free of everything” — leading Pete to observe that “It’s not the way I wanted it.”

• Joan invited Roger — whom she’s giving access to Kevin’s life, she said pointedly, not hers — and Bob to Thanksgiving at her place.

We’ll be back at 2 am ET/11 pm PT with a Season 6 post-mortem with creator Matthew WeinerUntil then, bookmark this page and then hit the comments to share your thoughts on the finale and your predictions for Season 7.
