Matthew Weiner loves to tease Mad Men viewers and keep them off guard, so of course the season finale refused to give us the expected, explosive plot turn. There were enough of those in the  past few weeks: Joan agreed (yes, agreed) to be pimped out to a client, Peggy quit, Lane killed himself. You want more? And throughout the season, Don gradually discovered he was not married to a doormat. Now that it’s over, we can see that this season – a season as good as this spectacular series has ever been – was mostly about what would come to be called, soon after the Mad Men years, sexual politics.
