Storyline

Pete Campbell returns from his honeymoon with tall tales and a big grin on his face. He does tell Peggy Olson that their fling before his marriage was for one night only. Don Draper runs into an old army buddy who knows him under the name of Dick Whitman. He also takes a tour of Rachel Menken's store but in a private moment, their mutual attraction becomes evident. The Drapers have friends over for their daughter's birthday party, including the divorcée who lives down the street. Don however is obviously unhappy with his lot in life and seems to be carrying a burden that is not apparent. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

In the opening scene, Don is sitting in a train looking at a magazine ad with a bemused expression. It is the same Volkswagen "Lemon" ad he later sees in Danny Siegel's portfolio in Mad Men: Waldorf Stories (2010). See more »

Goofs

The exterior of Don Draper's house is first shown at the end of episode 1, season 1. In episode 3, season 1, the exterior of the house is shown again - only it is a completely different house now. The house in the first episode has dormers on the roof and a small portico. The house in the third episode does not have any dormers or a portico. The window size and position are also different.

Harry Crane: Draper? Who knows anything about that guy, no one's ever lifted that rock. He could be Batman for all we know.

A foreshadowing of things to come...
5 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Seeing as how I am watching Season 1 and Season 4 at the same time, I can say that this episode is really amazing. It shows Don and Betty's 'perfect' suburban life, yet is also shows an underlying tension between both of them, tension that will only rise and become their central conflict in the future. Also, this episode we get the introduction to Don Draper's mystery life, who was he before? All of these story lines, together with Sally Draper's birthday party, which shows us how life in the suburbs and how couples treated each other back then, were powerful. Here we have an episode that is surely to be looked upon in the future as saying 'Ah, here is where it all started'.
