agree that this whole competition is mostly in teds head, but i have to believe don is no fool and he knows what is going on, and maybe even feeding it, intentionally or not.
dons little "talk" with sally was beyond pathetic. he was completely lost when he was chasing her and ended up in the lobby, and that little talk was just so weak sauce. not very don draper-ish. sally seemed to me to have completely lost whatever respect she may have had left for him.
lol @ petes mom calling him a "sour boy and sour man" and "unlovable." sums him up 100% for me since his first episode.
