    Great job, gentlemen! You make the show even more interesting than it already is!

    I have to be a dissenting opinion on this episode. The merger did not feel organic to me whatsoever. It was a convenient way to get Peggy and Don back together, while making Don look competent for once this season. The pitches that Don and Ted gave in the bar did not seem ground breaking or even up to par did me. Are we expected to believe that Chevy would buy Don’s “Difference faces of wonder” pitch? Joan’s speech seemed like something they decided beforehand that they wanted a little monologue for her and then figured out how to make it happen. It’s not particularly fun to see Pete act like such a fool and the idea that Don would just dump a client like jaguar like that is completely asinine. Can you imagine if anyone else had lost that account? It would be a fireable offense yet for some reason he gets a free pass except for a little heartless speech from Joan?

    I personally think this was the worst episode in recent memory and very disappointing.

    All good points Robert! There are many people that feel the same way as you do. This might be a case of some convenient writing, but it should give us some great drama for future episodes.

    Good to know, but unfortunately for SCDP it did not sell very well.
