they didn't do it to that extreme though. they've been dropping hints that he has feelings for her for weeks, and they even got together once. then they seemed to skip a few weeks between the last episode and this one. it would still be sloppy i think, but not as sloppy as you're suggesting. i don't feel like don is acting in those scenes with megan. i didn't on the first viewing and i still didn't on the second time through. it feels to me like he has fallen head over heels. but that last shot feels like the weight of all the other aspects of his life crashing down on him, all his other relationships. like this thing with megan is maybe too good to be true, a fantasy that doesn't really mesh life as he's always known it. but it's a good question to ponder for the next 38 weeks. in that sense it's a great finale.
