Ahem…..
Pete WAS a weasel, a frat boy who was raised to be a spoiled rich kid. But that was 10 Mad Men years ago. Pete is Don’s biggest supporter now (Harry & Roger also look out for him). They meet socially, and Don no longer keeps him at arms length.

What’s important from the old episode is Cooper’s advice to consider where allegiance is born, when he offers Don the option to fire him or take a chance on forging something different.

And something different is what happened. In the previous episode, it was Don, Peggy & Pete eating at Burger Shack like a family. They really are the family that Don & Peggy worked out earlier. (Considering Don & Pete’s looming divorces & Peggy lack of love life)

It’s these subtleties of the writing that make this show such a joy to watch. This show will go down as one of the finest takes on the 60’s, either in film or TV.

You’re totally right! Thank you for pointing out — I’ll change that to past tense. He has definitely changed, but it’s hard to forget his past misdeeds!

absolutely loved it, although I will sure miss Bert! Love that Don– the one and only is back and really like Peggy again, and don’t like Megan anymore at all…. oh and I think Sally Draper is the coolest tweenster ever!

Liaison mishmash? No! This was
One of my favs and for the reasons we
All know – the agency is a being in itself and the mad men are just the little prions that tick along with its clock. Vest la vie or Vest la Die, we all know the answers to this series but still can’t wait?!!!!!
