What a wild episode this was. We get an episode told from three different perspectives all surrounding the same timeframe. First, we see Peggy leading a presentation without Don for the first time and it goes horribly wrong. Then, Roger and his trophy wife, Jane go to a party to take LSD and that for all intents and purposes ends their marriage. Finally, Don pulls Megan out of the presentation and they go to a Howard Johnson’s hotel and restaurant only to find that goes horribly wrong.
It all ends with Bert Cooper giving Don a much needed wake up call. I loved this episode. Tremendous stuff.
Matt Wiener, Elisabeth Moss, Jon Hamm, and Jessica Paré discuss the episode.
In this scene, Don returns from Howard Johnson’s in upstate New York to find Megan back and their confrontation turns violent. Don tells Megan that he feared that he lost her.
And here’s what we’ll see next week on Mad Men, although nothing is in context. Damn you, Matt Wiener.
The next Mad Men episode is next Sunday night at 10 ET/PT on AMC.
