  • I was waiting for an episode to blow me away, here it is!

    After this episode I'm really glad I decided to give Mad Men a chance. A lot of interesting events culminate in this episode and I found it to be my most favorite yet. Finally, Don's story about his previous identity, Dick Whitman, is revealed. It was kind of what I expected it to be, but told in such an interesting way. His story could serve as it's own film. Peter's ambition finally pushes him to do something stupid and he attempts to blackmail Don when he learns of his hidden identity. He takes the information to Mr. Cooper and in an awesome scene, Cooper tells Peter to forget about it. This episode would have served great as the season finale but alas, it's not. One more left, and I can't wait to see what happens next.
