    We've seen the many faces of Don Draper all these 4 years, but I guess this is the first time we've seen a full blown out face showing fear. There was nothing positive in this episode for the folks at SCDP. Lucky Strike finally decides to close their business with SCDP, and Roger goes berserk. Pete brings in a new 4 million North American Aviation account only to have it thrown in the trash in an attempt to cover Don's past. Joan gets knocked up by Roger and travels to some place to get her abortion. We also get to see a glimpse of Lane's past with his abusive father who seems to control Lane's decisions.

    I really don't get what Matt Weiner wanted to convey using the last scene. Okay, Don is a cheating and manipulative liar who sleeps with every attractive woman in Madison Avenue. We get it. But please put an end to his conquests, it getting a little too overused. We see Don as a deeply troubled human being, not a child who seems to want every toy he lays his eyes on.

    Well, no Peggy, no supporting cast. Pretty good episode otherwise.
