MAD MEN Season Six Finale - A little disappointed

MAD MEN Season Six Finale - A little disappointed

Warning: Contains Spoilers.
Well, the sixth season of MAD MEN came to a close a couple of hours ago, and honestly, although I dug the season as a whole, I though the finale was a bit of a let down.
