Before taking his own life in “Commissions and Fees” (S05E12), the only person Lane bade farewell to was Joan, after a brief conversation about her desire to take a holiday that ended on a sour note. Lane’s final words were reminiscent of those that had been inscribed on a cake two seasons ago (“Guy Walks into an Advertising Agency”, S03E06), at the goodbye party Sterling Cooper arranged for Joan after she announced her leave to become a full-time housewife. Note the icing design of the cake: a cruise ship on the high seas, foretelling the dream vacation to be discussed by the two characters later.
