This episode started off slow, but things eventually picked up at the end. Betty Draper is boring and this storyline needs to end or get less focus immediately. When Freddy, Sterling and Don were hanging out on the town we saw some excellent chemistry and character development. Finally somebody punched Jimmy Barrett in the face, the one thing we've been waiting for for weeks.
Vincent Kartheiser is still underutilized, but at least he got some screen time here. We saw a much more malicious and cold-hearted Pete Campbell, but at the same time the humorous man we've come to expect from him.
MM did not deserve the Emmy for Outstanding drama and might win it again next year, but there are several shows far superior than this. Still, this was a fine offering from the AMC series.
