…or does it? As the ending of last night’s final episode suggests, Don’s far from finished. He’s switching things up again, this time by meditating in the morning sunlight among the hippies he used to sneer at. But his going to a retreat lines up with his earlier exhortations about “moving forward,” for he’s trying to put his past behind him.

Maybe he’ll go on to be a hippie guru? I suppose that sounds cynical, but an ad man like Don would know exactly how to package such a thing. He had already conquered the business world; maybe it’s time for him to try the personal one? Or perhaps, as an earlier scene showed, he’ll become a more empathetic and less selfish. We can only speculate.
