The fifth-season finale of "Mad Men" appeared to come full circle for ol' Dick Whitman, er, Don Draper.
Note: Spoilers below.
The ad executive seemed to be in a fulfilling, if challenging, relationship with his sassy new bride Megan, and professionally Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce was on the up and up. However, in the season's final episode, he is haunted by the ghost of his half brother who hanged himself after Don rejected his attempts to form a relationship, a moment that suggests cool, calm Don is still at odds with his complicated past. And after Megan pushes Don to include her in a commercial, the magic of that relationship seems to have paled a bit as well. The episode ends the way we've seen Don so many times before - at a dark bar, making eyes with an anonymous, daring young woman.
Check out a full recap of the "Mad Men" finale, and let us know what you thought of this season.
