Mad Men” season 7 is making sure the 60s go out with a bang. After seeing Ginsberg cut off his nipple and put it in a little box to present to Peggy as a gift, you found yourself asking was it too much wacky weed, mushrooms or stress? While Don goes from bender to bender, he has his first threesome on the show, but it was initiated by his wife and her girlfriend. That is a change, it wasn't a mistress this time!

He didn’t look too turned on seeing his wife kiss another girl, but she was higher than a kite. According to the way Slate sees it, in an article published May 12, Don bucked this threesome until he couldn’t fight it any more. He did look like the square in the bunch for a few minutes there. It seems that not only the ad men are experimenting with the drugs, but so are the rest of their families.

Peggy was in tears watching the paramedics take Ginsberg out on a stretcher after she called for help. The usually comical advertising employee was screaming that the computer was playing with his brain. He wanted everyone to stay away from the new computer as it was turning his bosses into homosexuals. He too thought this was happening to him, as the Atlantic suggests today.

To battle that feeling he cut his nipple off to relieve the pressure that the computers installed in him somehow. The night before he tried to bed down Peggy. In his deranged mind Ginsberg somehow thought that the computer couldn't turn him into a homosexual if he could procreate with Peggy. While she’s usually a good friend, this was pushing the limit and she wanted nothing to do with this. She was heartsick when seeing Ginsburg go over the edge, handing her a box with his severed nipple in it.

What’s up with Megan? When Anna’s niece needed help Don sent her to Megan’s house in the canyon. He flew out the next day to help the very pregnant and confused teen. When he got there she had already left, on her own desire, Megan tells Don, but that’s not how it went. Megan became very defensive when Stephanie told her she “knew all Don’s secrets,” which was nothing more than a light-hearted quip.

Megan’s demeanor changed and she cut the girl a check for $1000 and sent her on her way. She looked like a jealous lover and the girl turned to her and said that nothing ever happened between her and Don. What Megan saw was a beautiful young girl about to have a baby. She knew soon that beautiful young girl would be competition for her, as the two weren’t too far apart in age.

Over at Betty’s house, things aren’t going too well. She’s still a miserable mother and now she’s turning into a witch of a wife. She used to adore her new husband and acted like a subservient child around him. That’s changed, Betty seems to be running the show. She informs Henry she is smart and she speaks Italian!

“Madmen” took a leap into the strange and bizarre this last episode, from severed nipples to a threesome and don’t forget the computer that Ginsberg thinks is turning the office men into homosexuals. Even Betty has succumbed to the free thinking late 60s. Don, who was the craziest out of the bunch there for the first several seasons, looks like an old fart compared to the people around him.
