And now we're back to Don, who gets asked for a light by a Heather-Graham-in-Austin-Powers-2-looking woman. He obliges her and then, indicating another attractive woman down bar, tells him her friend was wondering: Is he alone? He takes a loooong moment before turning back to her, inscrutably and yet not without interest, although that could be due to the wide reach of the question. And that's it for the season, which, despite some flaws, yet again, I loved. And while I'm not convinced this means the Don Draper of old is back -- remember the very last shot of the fourth season came to nothing too -- he surely is feeling at a crossroads. But we'll have to wait for Season Six to see if he actually separates his life from his dreams.
And thanks so much for reading! Hope to see you all again next year.
