    seems unlikely. Hell, i think it's unlikely they would have called a meeting with the partners and fired Don on Thanksgiving Day.

    But really, it doesn't matter. Don is canned from SCP. And Duck is bringing in a candidate for the head of creative.

    But is he really canned, or just on a leave?

    Matt W. was pretty clear that we will have to wait and see how that plays out.

    I think the partners did what they could legally do given Don's partnership in the company. The intention is to fire him, but his ownership makes that messy, so they put him on a leave of absence and will try to work out the legal issues in order to complete the separation. That's my interpretation of what the partners told him during that meeting. And Don simply leaving without getting any kind of specific answers as to how long the suspension would last implies that he understands he was fired.

    Now will that still be the case when S7 begins? No idea. There are many ways that relationship could be patched up at some point. But as of Thanksgiving morning, 1968, Don Draper was fired from the firm for all intents and purposes.

    Agreed. Don being a Partner makes "firing" him a complicated matter.

    Season 5 premiered on March 25, 2012 and season 6 on April 7, 2013.

    So if AMC keeps to a similar schedule, season 7 will premier either towards the end March or early April of 2014.

    I think he oozes charm, not charisma.

    TOTALLY agree with this....I was shaking my head and saying "wow" out loud as that scene progress. Probably some of the best teevee I've seen in a few years.

    Not true...they clearly showed him taking a drink in his office before he went into the meeting.

    Agree....he's handsome and has a great smile. If he were not, he wouldn't even be charming. He's "nice", but, to me, not believably nice. I don't think he brings anything to the show, really. He just annoys me. But, hey, we'll see if his character goes anywhere....

    I don't think that anyone in the firm really "buys" or knows who/what he is, which I is why I said he isn't 'charismatic'. There just doesn't seem to be any substance there; unless you want to call 'kissing everyone's a**" as substance.

    Your internet debate card is hereby revoked. Not for being wrong, of course, but for admitting you were wrong.

    Even if they said "leave", I think the tone of the meeting and the way it was told to him, plus the encounter in the elevator, it seemed that the other partners are forcing him out.

    With the possibility of Don being fired, the partners are going to have to buy out his share of the company. Wouldn't this also free Don from a non compete clause?

    One would think. But most likely they will not touch on that. They didn't talk about the same problem when Lane hung himself.

    They bought out his wife. The non-compete was moot.

    We don't know that. They never actually talked about it.
