There was quite a bit of hair stuff happening in this episode. Also death etc etc etc, but mostly hair stuff.

Forgot to post this yesterday (and last week, now that I check), so I’m mostly doing this for archival purposes. But this week’s Power Rankings went up, and featured LSD, orange sherbet and handjobs, though not in combination, sadly.

Mad Men Power Rankings, Episode 413: “Tomorrowland”

[Production note: Like Mad Men itself, the Power Rankings have not yet been officially renewed for another season, so we — again like Mad Men itself —  will do our best to leave these in a place that will drive a large portion of our audience frothing-at-the-mouth insane with disappointment and frustration. Last week’s Power Rankings can be found here.]

For this Special Finale Edition, we’ve asked each ranked individual to write a note to him- or herself to read at the start of next season. Amazingly, each character agreed!

1. Don Draper (even) Last week: 1

"Dear Next Season Don:

Wow, that was a crazy season we just endured, don’t you think? We lost dear, sweet Anna, the only person whom I allowed to truly know me, a kind of repayment for the that regrettable identity theft business.

Mad Men Power Rankings: Episode 412, “Blowing Smoke”

[Production note: Nothing noteworthy to report. While that has not stopped the Production Note from appearing in the past, it’s a good enough reason this time to forgo the usual preamble nonsense. Last week’s rankings can be found here.]

On page A24 of the New York Times sometime in 1964*, the following advertisement appeared:

Mad Men Power Rankings: Episode 411, “Chinese Wall”

[Production note: No one reads these things. Accordingly, your production note editor will instead slink home and open the giant box of self-published production note memoirs that’s waiting there, thinking about what he doesn’t have instead of what he does. (A box full of ridiculous books.) Last week’s rankings can be found here.]

1. Don Draper (even) Last week: 1

Don Draper, inwardly terrified that his new firm is about to implode, but outwardly the same image of lantern-jawed stoicism we’ve come to know and be repeatedly seduced by, addresses the Sterling Cooper Draper Price “nearest and dearest” meeting:

As is the custom, your morning re-blog of the Mad Men Power Rankings posted last night, after you’d probably put your internet to bed. Here they are.

Mad Men Power Rankings, Episode 410, “Hands and Knees”

[Production notes: None. Oh, wait—should we mention we wore a billowy pink maternity gown while writing this? We did. There were also frilly bobby-socks, to distract from the water retention in our ankles. Just something to keep in mind as you read, no big deal.]

1. Don Draper (even) Last week: 1

Should we start with the puking? We should probably start with the puking.
