So let’s just wallow in “Mad Men” for the moment, for the last time this season — the finale’s Sunday night, and quite honestly I have no idea where things are going.

Because it’s going to be, after Sunday, likely another nine months before we see Don and Joan and Pete and Roger and the gang again.
