This will be our last sneak peek of the season, but we will do a look inside Episode 13 next week.
Wow. What can you say about tonight’s episode? This certainly sets up next Sunday. You have the partners all nervous about losing Lucky Strike and being played for another cigarette advertiser (eventually becoming Virginia Slims). Don deciding to write an ad in the New York Times declaring Sterling Cooper Draper & Pryce out of the tobacco advertising business causing an uproar at the firm. The firings certainly marking the sign of the current times. Then you have Don helping out Pete as a gesture for losing a military client earlier in the season. All interesting stuff. And we have the agency trying to keep its head above water through all this. Then there’s Sally’s issues and Betty still being a child. Let’s take a look at the episode, then take a look at next week’s.
First, we have John Slattery who directed tonight’s episode (“Blowing Smoke”) discussing the theme along with Jon Hamm, Jared Harris, Elisabeth Moss. Great episode tonight.
Now let’s look at two scenes from this episode. First, Pete talks with Trudy about putting money into the firm and she outright refuses.
Here’s Don writing his anti-tobacco business ad.
And we have the full recap of “Blowing Smoke”.
Because AMC has not put a video sneak peek for the Season Finale, “Tomorrowland”, I can only give you the description which is “Opportunity arises for Don and Peggy.” Does that mean another firm offers to a job to Don and Peggy? Does this mean a new client coming in? I do have a couple of pictures of next week’s episode and they come courtesy of AMC.com and photographer Michael Yarish.

In lieu of video, I give you pictures. The Mad Men Season 4 finale airs next Sunday night, October 17 at 10 on AMC.
