“Are you alone?”
Well Mad Men fans, its been a long wait, but we finally may get to see an answer to this question. When last we saw Don, he was sitting at the bar after having secured an acting job for Megan, but losing respect for her in the process. After a full season of behaving well, respecting his marriage and genuinely trying to grow as a man and a husband, Don finds himself back in this familiar position. Of course, the question “Are you alone?” carries much more resonance than just a pick-up line, but a step back into adultery will say a lot about Don’s attempts to be a better man, and a happier man.
