Mad Men 7.07 Review: “Waterloo”

Mad Men has often been described as a show about nothing; meaning that there is no overarching plot development or end goal in mind. It’s simply a series of vignettes as these people go through their lives. It is not a label to be taken literally. The pitch, so to speak, for this show is about one thing, and one word, only: connection.

The people that reside in the Mad Men universe are dying for it. They marry and divorce and seduce and fight and find friendships in slow dances. Every thing that they do is to find someone else. Don Draper has ruined every relationship that he’s ever had because the connection he craved could never be filled by sex and power, the two things that came easiest to him. Don’s fulfillment ultimately came with his daughter, at his most vulnerable.
