My guess is that the offer from the other firm was not bad...Rodger's line about them trying awfully hard to make it look like its not a demotion makes me think the money was more than good in order to make up for the loss in seniority. Don seems to be in the "fixing things" mood--and I suppose he likes his creative team--but it does seem strange that he wants to jump back in with that firm. Is it because he knows that they are ok with his past? Would some other firm take a closer look at his history and care about his lies or would they let his solid work history make up for his shaky pre-advertising history. Lou is still an insufferable asshole.
