I wonder what happened to Arnold, he was Don's friend and simply disappeared when Sylvia did.

I guess i'm so used to seeing supporting characters die on GOT that it's strange when they simply just stop appearing on Mad Men without it resulting in a death.

Also forgot Don paying off Sylvia with money. Kind of degrading, and the way she just accepts it happily.

Peggy is not a good leader, she just doesn't know how to gain the respect of those beneath her.

Season 6 is flawed, but in terms of humor I think it's the sharpest.

Trudy is exceptionally nice to the girl Pete cheated with. How did Pete land this woman? Trudy's perfect.

The Drapers and Rosens scheduled a dinner, Megan backs out due illness and Arnold is called to the hospital. So a dinner of four winds up conveniently being a dinner of two.

Don: You want to feel shitty right up until the point I take your dress off.

From dining to a *** scene. Don and Sylvia, two shameless human beings.

Megan tells Don about the miscarriage. Both seem to take it in very lightly.

Don pitches Herbs idea in the worst, most unappealing way because Herb makes him sick. Jaguar partners were unimpressed.

I love me some Bob Benson.

Bob: It can't be that bad when you're doing something that you love.

That was actually a pretty solid episode. The worst of Mad Men? I'm not sure anymore. The problem is, yes it's well written but it's about many storylines that were soapy even for Mad Men.

Let's rank the storylines from worst to best:

Megan's miscarriage: Perhaps the most soapy storyline of the episode, of course goes to Megan. She has a miscarriage and tells Sylvia about it in guilt, not because she had it but because she was relieved she had it. (D)

Herb's Jaguar idea: Herb comes with the bright idea of marketing Jaguar to the poor, and wants Don to pitch the idea as if it were theirs. It doesn't work out as Don is sick of trying to keep Herb happy. Also it was a terrible idea. (D)

Don and Sylvia's dirty affair: Another soap opera plot. Don continues his dirty affair with Sylvia and both happily go about their sneaky betrayals. In a coincidence in which both Megan and Arnold are unable to make dinner, Don and Sylvia are left to openly have a romantic dinner together. (D+)
Image

Peggy can't get a break: Peggy makes an attempt to have her coworkers like her better but fails miserably. She doesn't possess the leadership skills, but after overhearing rumors from Stan and telling Ted about Hertz Ketchup she choses to betray her friend's trust. (D+)

**** Flashback: Not a flashback of a ****, duh. In these flashbacks we see **** and his mom move into the ***** house and him spying on some dirty affairs. There's not much else but it's always nice to see some **** history. (C)
Image

Pete cheats of Trudy with a neighbor: And Trudy ain't taking this **** no' mo'. Pete cheats on Trudy with neighbor Brenda, whose husband comes to find about and beats the **** out of her. This all winds up in an embarrassing situation in which Trudy has to drive her to a hotel. Pete tries to brush it off as nothing but Trudy finally stands up for herself and shows her claws. (B-)
Image

Conclusion: It's a well written and constructed episode, but as you can see i'm not a big fan of any of the storylines.

Rating: C

Best Quotes:
Herb: I know there's a part of you that is glad to see me.
Joan: And I know there's a part of you you haven't seen in years.

Sylvia: I have to be careful. I can't fall in love. It won't be so French anymore.

Trudy: I'm drawing a 50 mile radius around this house and if you so much as open your fly to urinate, I will destroy you.
