    Anybody catch the line from Megan about Don "Jumping off the balcony"... Some subtext or foreshadowing perhaps?

    Also, agreed with others saying it was a great episode.

    He tried

    He combined a and b and won. He was searching for a reason to crush Pete, which he did by severing business ties. That SHOULD have led Pete to manning up and accepting that as the punishment while both would live with the 'incident' without further repercussions. It would be assumed Pete would cut the whoring, too.

    The truth being exposed to Trudy is solely on Pete and his inability to accept responsibility for his actions. There was no need to expose the whoring and now that he has, Trudy is gone for good and she's not going to believe (nor really care about) what he says about her dad because he has zero credibility with her now. It's almost a bonus point for dad's plan.

    I will assume the FIL has met Peter before that night, and given that, the FIL should know that's not how Pete operates. Peter accept responsibility? Come now! Also, it's not like Peter owns SCPD. Did the FIL really think Peter would not expose to his cronies about the whorehouse run in? I mean, the FIL is an old school boy too and no doubt has had whores bought for him by other ad agencies in his long career...how could he not figure Peter would not tell his partners he lost this huge account in a whorehouse?

    I was just tossing the "wants to be outed" idea in, and can see what you all are saying, but if that's true the FIL is far too stupid to have become nouveau riche which is exactly what he is. Maybe the FIL wanted both to end Trudy's marriage and out himself?

    Yeah, what I like about TV shows is (to me) it seems like they constantly juxtapose characters, themes etc and this season and end of last season the "Mad Men" crew have really tried to show how Pete wants to be Don so badly but is an utter failure at it.

    Just got around to watching the latest episode. All of the female leads -- aside from Betty -- were given time to shine in this episode. From Joan telling Don off to Peggy finding out about the merger, great performances all around.

    I might of missed it but why is this guy getting screen time lately:

    He's a new character and they are trying to trick us into believing he's always been there.

    Maybe Pete is going to jump off the balcony and Grinning Coffee Guy is going to take his place.

    We have the foreshadowing from when Pete threw the roast chicken (turkey?) Trudy made over the balcony...

    I always figured Pete's stupid rifle would somehow factor into a death on the show.

    Watching Don instantly recognize Coffee Guy's shtick and just walk right past him was hilarious.

    I liked that episode. I wonder what was going on in that final scene when Don was sitting on the bed...what was he thinking?

    He tuned her out and only focused on her mouth.

    I think that's enough to understand what he was thinking.

    I was wondering about the RFK scene, because if you remember, Betty and Dons relationship ended (or began to) around the JFK shooting.

    Coffee guy is white knighting Joan. Will be swimming in humongous ginger boobs soon I think.

    Don making doc's wife his whore -- I saw that not lasting. Talk about a power play on his part though.

    Pete chair scene in the meeting was funny.
