What I can picture is Sally bringing home guys in vans with long hair and disprespectful attitudes and just daring Don to call her on her behavior.
AKA "season 7".

Isn't Sally now 16, I could have sworn she said she was a year younger than the violin girl from the start of the season and I thought she was 17.

Re: Mad Men season 6 (spoilers)

In the second season episode "The Mountain King", Don tells Anna, "Sally's 8, Bobby's 5", when she asks how old his children are. That was late-1962.

During the sixth season, in 1968, that currently would make Sally 14 and Bobby 11.

Sally also mentions she's 14 in "The Crash", earlier this season.

In "The Rejected", during the fourth season and in February 1965, Don mentions that Sally is 10, Bobby is 7, and Gene is one-and-a-half. Since it was so early in the year, they most likely didn't have their birthdays yet.

Therefore: Sally was born in 1954 and Bobby was born in 1957.

Sally will be starting high school when the timeline reaches fall.

Re: Mad Men season 6 (spoilers)

Pretty slow episode, lots of melodrama with wives and little running of SC&P. Which is okay, they've spread out the storylines a bit more. Peggy was obviously thinking of her love child with Pete when talking to crazy old Ms. Campbell. I wonder if she barely remembers having the child? Don's advice to her was to forget it ever happened. The kid would be 7 or 8 now? I wonder if he'll ever turn up again.

Having Sally be in charge is going to be rough for Don. Kids aren't great at keeping secrets. It's kind of incredible to see Roger actually working again.

I expected Pete to blow his top over bunsen burner Bob. He was remarkably cool headed.

The last two episodes are called "The Quality of Mercy" and "In Care Of."
The Quality of Mercy - a line from Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice, I believe means that you should dole out your mercy equally to everyone, not on a case-by-case basis and I wonder if this is a culmination of Don's cherry picking so far. He'll be gracious and caring one minute and unbearably cruel the next.

So, Bob is gay and was coming on to Pete in that scene? I would have thought Pete's reaction would have been more severe, also. Was Bob telling Pete that Pete's Mom's nurse was also gay? I'm not sure I got that scene.

Pretty funny scenes with Peggy and the rat.

After walking in on Roger and her (step) grandma, and now her father, Sally should learn never to go into any "other" rooms when there are adults around. That kid is going to be in need a of lots of therapy.

Like a lot of people I had initially assumed that Peggy’s sister was raising the baby, but that was not the case. As such, and given how adoption records were sealed back then, I would assume it would well into the 1990s, at the earliest, before the child would ever be able to even consider contacting her.

I took that scene to mean that Pete’s mom’s nurse is gay. Beyond that, it was impossible to tell whether: (a) Bob is also gay; (b) Bob is deftly manipulating Pete by preying on his homophobia and paranoia; (c) Bob got to the part of his self help records about the use of physical contact to aid communication and bungled the application, freaking Pete out.

As an aside, Peggy looks pretty good as a blonde.

Matt Weiner speaks as to whether or not anyone dies this season, here. No one is going to, he says. I believe him.

Lane was an extreme and unusual case. He was also the only regular character who died. He was an exception, not a rule.

Other characters who have died in this series haven't been regulars and, with one exception, they've died of disease, old age, and from war. The only exception there is Adam who committed suicide and, again, he wasn't a regular.

Re: Mad Men season 6 (spoilers)

Although I'm against smoking, it's nice to see Betty and Sally bond.

Rollo was also the name of a shady character on Sanford & Son. That makes Glenn the equivalent of Lamont and the voice of reason.

Bob Benson is the gay Don Draper of Accounts! Seeing the way Bob gets around at SC&P makes me wonder about how Don got around during the early days of Sterling Cooper.

I thought Kenny was going to get it and...

... that I'd set myself up to walk right into something with what I said in the previous post.

I'm glad Kenny didn't stay in Detroit. Anyone who'd walk away from McCann and leave Geyer would have the common sense to get out of Detroit.

What can I add to the comments? Oh yeah, Don is a clueless tool.

That's pretty much it.
