Where have we heard that before?

Nixon vs Kennedy. Rachel to Don, when he wants them to run away together. Don to Pete, when he attempts blackmail. You haven’t thought this through. You haven’t thought this through.

In the Wheel, Don learns that Adam has hung himself.

Don had determined that he wants nothing to do with Adam, ever. And gave him $5,000 and orders never to resurface.

Don hadn’t considered that he would ever want to have a relationship with Adam, but that changed.

Don hadn’t considered that giving Adam that money and sending him out of his life forever might wound him beyond repair, but it did.

He thought. We watched him. He thought and thought and thought.

But somehow he didn’t quite think it through.
