Agree....he's handsome and has a great smile. If he were not, he wouldn't even be charming. He's "nice", but, to me, not believably nice. I don't think he brings anything to the show, really. He just annoys me. But, hey, we'll see if his character goes anywhere....

I don't think that anyone in the firm really "buys" or knows who/what he is, which I is why I said he isn't 'charismatic'. There just doesn't seem to be any substance there; unless you want to call 'kissing everyone's a**" as substance.

Matt W. was pretty clear that we will have to wait and see how that plays out.

Even if they said "leave", I think the tone of the meeting and the way it was told to him, plus the encounter in the elevator, it seemed that the other partners are forcing him out.

With the possibility of Don being fired, the partners are going to have to buy out his share of the company. Wouldn't this also free Don from a non compete clause?

One would think. But most likely they will not touch on that. They didn't talk about the same problem when Lane hung himself.

They bought out his wife. The non-compete was moot.

We don't know that. They never actually talked about it.

They didn't talk about what? They absolutely did talk about buying out his wife's shares. And of course they wouldn't talk about a non-compete for a dead guy.

No, that was never addressed on the show. Don told Joan to use some of the insurance money to pay back the $50k Lane had to put in as collateral after Lucky Strike left, but that was only a repayment, not a buyout.
