I loved this episode! Peggy's terrible apartment - she's so desperate to make things work with Abe because she thinks that's what she wants when it's just making her miserable. When Teddy kissed Peggy I shouted "No!" And then when she got dolled up to go see him and was blindsided by Don, ouch. She finally went out on her own and out from Don's shadow and she's right back there. I loved Don telling off Herb but I loved even more Joan telling off Don. I loved getting to see Roger do what Roger does. Peter and his FIL going nuclear on each other was amusing. Peter throwing a hissy fit on the phone was funny. It was a little sad, Bert was just in Peter's office praising him for helping run a great business, then less than 24 hours later he's lost Jaguar and Vick's. It was interesting that Trudy was softening to him but it was more important for Peter to get even than save his marriage. The scene in the bar where Don and Teddy share their pitches was great. I really like Teddy, except when he's hitting on Peggy. (It might just be I like the actor.) Now we see why Harry Hamlin was cast as Cutler. What will the new agency be? Will the merger work out? SCDP-CGC? This episode was heavy on plot with one great scene after another, and light on character development. I bet the critics will like it less because of that. But it was a bridging episode - shaking everything up with a ton of plot developments to lead into new character struggles in the remaining half of the season.
