  • Brilliant episode, One of the best

    One of the most enjoyable episodes to date. (warning lots of spoilers) The episode begins with the "new car" and flashbacks to Don as a car salesman, the aspect of his past and that he is not really Don Draper. The aspect of Trash is a main trend as the family leave rubbish after there picnic and later Don is told in a line "your trash" at the end of the episode. There is allot of standoffs in the episode as jane is still causing causing stirr in the office as being daring and showing the "new era" of women. she is as strong it seems as joan, but can resist the temptation of the men in the office. Don is truly now loosing his cool, in the previous episodes his lies with the new relationship are starting to show, now he can't have salt due to high blood pressure lie and he cracked up in the previous ep, betty now for sure after what Jimmy told her he could see his wife cheating with Don it will be interesting how this plays out!

    The Sal being in touch with his feminine side is clear as his character is explored in this episode as he seems to awe over ken!

    All in al great episode, i don't understand thefanof's review, Ken has previously had no screentime and surly it makes a change to having Pete on all the time.. and i don't mind jimmy, he isn't a deep character but he is plain speaking and tells it as it is!
