As the old adage goes, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Mad Men's fifth season ended with a disillusioned Don Draper (Jon Hamm) sitting on a barstool pondering both his future with Megan (Jessica Paré) and his answer to an attractive young woman's question: "Are you alone?" And although Season 6 of the AMC drama picked up the action about eight months later with Don still married to (and vacationing in Hawaii with) his soap-opera-actress wife, it wasn't long before he was sneaking out of their hotel room in the middle of the night to once again find solace by himself in a bar.
