Was Bert's vision his approval of the new deal from beyond, or a warning to Don (who is back on top, but alone yet again) about what's really important in life?
    That was also the desk where Don's secretary, Mrs. Blankenship died. Wasn't she also Bert's secretary for a while? I don't know if that was meant to signify anything, but I picked up on it, and I'm usually oblivious to little things like that.

    Yes she was Bert's secretary -- and from some of the hints dropped, possibly an ex-lover as well.

    And it was a truly eerie/brilliant bit of irony that Burt died the night of the Moon landing, when a few years earlier, he had eulogized Miss Blankenship with "Born in 1898 in a barn, she died on the 37th floor of a skyscraper. She was an astronaut."

    Oh yeah, I totally forgot that astronaut line. Good catch!

    I was a little sad that MM had no Golden Globe nominations this year. This year quite a few were snubbed. Jon Hamm didn't even get a nomination.

    I think the Hollywood Foreign Press was intent on setting trends with their TV nominations, and show they were forward thinking by giving so many nominations to streaming services. Being on traditional TV mediums hurt shows this year ... and ultimately hurt the awards show since the TV portions were so boring! Think about it -- Amy Poehler, Andy Samberg and Brooklyn 99 all won last year, and not one of them was even nominated this year? To me, that's about politics, not performance. There's nothing Mad Men could do about that ... except move the show to Amazon!

    Also, the show sucked last year. It didn't deserve award nominations.
