    I had a neighbor who died of a sudden heart attack. Turns out his wife, son and all his friends found out he had been living a lie with a totally false history. (he had been married previously, had other kids, other jobs and masterfully kept it all a secret). Not just his immediate family, but all of his friends and business associates hated the guy for lying. They all felt cheated and that they had been played for fools. For this reason, I can't help but feel there will be a lot anger and resentment towards Don if he decides to reveal much more about his past. Don't expect sympathy. He lied to them. They can never trust him.

    +1

    Considering his support for Joan and Roger, and that Ted's face had barely dried from crying to Don about the California post, I was disappointed at this coup.

    Not at all surprised or disappointed in Bert Cooper or Ted's partner.

    One of the best lines Don had last night was what is so great about a Hershey bar: the wrapper looked like what was inside.

    i quite liked

    "It was the only sweet thing in my life."

    did you notice his hands shaking before he went into his dialogue? it was almost like the hershey bar was so important to him and so pure in its part of his life, that he could not allow it to be sullied by contrived advertising, and that pushed him over the edge.

    kinda weird, but you never know what will push that button, and how valuable the little things people hold dear are.

    His hands were shaking due to DTs. Just prior to the meeting Ted told Don to have a drink to avoid getting them.

    The line about the chocolate bar is fine but really has nothing to do with the main theme surrounding Don Draper. He praises the Hershey bar for looking like the wrapper. What's outside = what's inside. That's sort of a rare thing in the world of both Dick Whitman and Don Draper.

    The sepia toned Alfalfa-meets-Pretty Baby flashbacks to the whorehouse were the worst part of this season. But it all paid off in the last shot of the tumbledown house in front of the crappy modern(ist) slum buildings. It all seemed totally fake, like Paul Newman and Robert Redford were about to walk around the corner and a Scott Joplin song would start playing and young Draper would join in some hilarious hijinx. But at the end, it all came real like Pooh and Wallace might walk around the corner any second to offer them some heroin.

    Loved the 1968 version of an intervention. The 1968 version of an intervention == "You're fired." Best part of Bob Fatwhiteguy from Dancer Alexander saying "Going Down?" to Draper is we know that he'll end up as chunks in Draper's stool. His demise will barely be a plot point, next season. Don (even at rock bottom) knows it too.

    Here's a pro-tip. If you are going to tell your beautiful protege that you love her but you can't leave your wife and family, make sure to bang her first. Not after.

    I liked that Trudy Campbell was smarter than she seemed but when did she become all wise and all knowing.

    Bob Benson ate Pete for lunch. But Roger will end up drilling a hole in his head.

    Ironically, the truth might have been the only thing that could have saved Pete once he was in the Camero at Chevy.

    Pete: (revs engine, shuts it down) That's enough for me.

    Chevy Exec: Go ahead, take it for a spin.

    Pete: (grinning as he exits) No thanks, I can't drive a stick.

    Do we know the full story on Bob Benson yet? Is he just a guy who reinvented himself, like Don, and is now trying to climb the ranks like everyone else? Or is he a legitimate con man setting something up? If he's in league with Manolo, that makes me think it could be the latter.

    Stolen from an acquaintance:

    Poor Pete. Things would have turned out better if he had learned to drive stick. And also to operate a manual transmission.

    dude.. if you just googlewebbed the interwebs you'd read the spoiler that Benson is Pete and Peggie's love child who visiting from the future.

    I want to pretend that's a stupid far out theory, but people (probably lost fans going through withdrawal symptoms like draper) have actually theorized that.

    I liked it but it certainly isn't flowing as well as it did in the beginning. They are starting story lines and abandoning them, I think they are struggling to be innovative. Reminds me of the similar problems the writers seemed to have on The Sopranos.

    California represented the last place to start over for many people in the 50s and 60s. My parents among them.

    yes, i know the shaking was alcohol related, but them panning to it right before he launched into his story was no accident.
