Storyline

Don Draper is shaken when his past life comes back to haunt him. After his picture appears in a local newspaper, Adam Whitman, a man who claims to be his younger brother, approaches him. Don, or Dick as his brother knows him, initially denies everything but in the end admits to having taken on a new name. He refuses however to have anything to do with him and tries to buy his silence. When one of the ad men gets a short story published, Pete Campbell is frustrated that his own stories have yet to see the light of day. When his wife approaches an old beau to see if he will publish the stories, he has an interesting proposition for her. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Betty is complaining to Francine about the family photos in her kitchen, Francine hands her one photo that she tells her is nice. Betty is holding the photo with two hands (you can see both sets of pink fingernails on the sides of the photo) but when the shot cuts to Betty, she is holding the photo with her left hand only and has her right hand holding up a cigarette.

Mystery revealed...
6 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a crucial and important episode to the series. It gives us a deeper insight into Don's secret life, where he was previously known as Dick Whitman. His entire past life is not revealed, but the episode does introduce his younger brother, and the way Don deals with the situation is very sad, but appropriate given the type of man he is.

On the other side of the episode, we find out how selfish Pete can truly be, and we see Peggy hilariously trying to deal with covering Don's affair. Her quick need for Joan's help shows how naive and helpless she is in this new world for her, and when she mentions how difficult it is, Joan replies with a smile "Yes, but don't you love it?" That was one of my favorite moments.

Overall, this was a brilliant episode all around, the best so far of Season 1, and I look forward to more.
