There would be no investigation into anything. The US Military in 1969 had plenty to worry about, they weren't going to throw assets at military tribunals designed to bury rich white guys for going AWOL 2 decades ago.
That's why all this "Bob Benson is a spy" crap was always nonsense to me. A) It's not Weiner's thing; he doesn't do soap opera twists. But B) The government would give zero ****s about Whitman at this point if he just kept his head down and his mouth shut, which is exactly what he's done.
And no offense to some of the other posters in this thread, but seriously, this is what you want to talk about? This is what you got from this season? Whether or not Don's still a partner after being fired or whether he'd be charged with murder, when murder was clearly not the case?
The future of Don Draper/Dick Whitman is so much more interesting to discuss. What happens to his family, to his current wife, to his psyche? Where does he live in Season Seven? Has he reconciled with his children, especially Sally? Has he come to grips with the demons inside or him or will it always be a constant battle?
There are just endless possibilities to address.
But murder? No.
