John Slattery: Roger and Joan Are “Soulmates,” But Will They Reunite on Mad Men?
Now that Joan has ditched her good-for-nothing husband, is there a chance that she'll reunite with her on-again off-again lover (and the father of her child), Roger, on Mad MenSeason 5? Jon Slattery, who plays Roger, weighed in on this question during a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live.

"[Roger and Joan] love each other," John said. "I don't know whether they'll ever be together, but, you know, they're sort of soul mates, I think."
Soul mates constantly kept apart by their own bad decisions — especially Roger's. Marrying Jane was a huge mistake, as John explained in a recent interview with the The Atlantic: "Roger's marriage to Jane was impulsive, and it isn't necessarily a match made in heaven. He may be in love with Joan, but he wasn't able to make the choice to marry her... Roger Sterling isn't enjoying himself."
Do you think Roger and Joan belong together, or is there too much water under the bridge for that relationship to ever work, even if Jane was out of the picture? Voice your opinion in the comments!
