Holy Moly, What Happened to Kinsey on Mad Men?
While Caitlin is off enjoying a much-deserved vacation and being all-around fabulous, I offered to fill in and recap Mad Men this week. And whoa, I was not disappointed.
Lots of other exciting, forward-plot-moving events happened on Mad Men last night—i.e. Joan’s husband filing divorce papers, Don and Joan’s crazy-hot chemistry and almost hook-up, and Lane making major financial risks—but I just can’t get over Kinsey’s bald-headed, Hare-Krishna-following return.
Way back in season three, Kinsey wasn’t selected to join the new Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, and the slight apparently sent him into a spiral. After hitting rock bottom, Kinsey tells his old pal Harry that he’s joined the Hare Krishna movement. He says it was because he believes in their ideas, but it turns out he really just joined to follow a woman. Figures.
Long story short, Harry gives Kinsey $500 to go to Los Angeles and start fresh. Kinsey was always one to take on more Bohemian ideas and attitudes, but I don’t know if I ever saw this coming. Let’s just hope he gets rid of that terrible ‘do in Hollywood. Shudder.
Were you as surprised as I was at Kinsey’s new look? What did you think of the rest of the episode?
