  • This episode was worth coming to and reviewing it! It was absolutely extraordinary, and it deeply displays the talent that the show has in its cast and writers. It's the first time since the series premiere that I'd been left blown away by Mad Men!

    This episode alone deserves Emmy's in all categories. Brilliant performances by Jon Hamm and Elisabeth Moss, both of whom showcased real character acting that has recently been lost or forgotten in Hollywood (whether on network or film). The writing was absolutely astounding as it dove into both Peggy Olson and Don Drapers lives and developed the relationship of the pair in a style that was only, until now, possible in novels or real life. The direction was superb as the director really explored the setting of the Sterling-Cooper-Draper-Pryce office through scenes, lighting, and props, which greatly advanced the storyline. There is a reason Mad Men continues to win best Drama series every year, and this episode symbolizes that very reason.
