By the time Jessica Pare had “Zou Bisou Bisou”-ed her way into all future lists of TV’s Most Memorable Moments, that 17-month wait for Season 5 was all but forgotten, and completely forgiven. Season 5 went on to give us more signature moments and messy ethical dilemmas, including Joan’s carnal offering to a prospective client, Lane Pryce’s tragic suicide, Peggy leaving the firm, Sally Draper’s continuing coming-of-age, and (perhaps not so shocking) Don leaving Megan. Season 6 will be worth the wait, however long it may be.
