If we use the "agency without X is doing fine" logic, then SCDP was doing more than fine when Bert was totally sidelined as a token yoda and Roger was hanging onto his career by a very thin thread as he lost Lucky Strike and got pressured by junior partner like Pete.
IMO Don has done nothing wrong for his career this whole season.
The only questionable behavior is his Hershey's pitch. Maybe he pissed off the other partners when he said he wants to go to LA? Even then, that was a very good business decision.
So I still don't understand how a new senior accounts partner with no new accounts, an old accounts partner who struggled to get new clients, and a complete side lined yoda, and a creative partner that got pussy whipped can manage to threw out the biggest contributor to the firm.
