Storyline

It's May 25, 1965, the date of two milestones. First, it's the much anticipated heavyweight boxing rematch between Sonny Liston and Cassius Clay. All of the guys from the office are planning on watching the fight at the Loews movie theater, making a night out of it with dinner and drinks beforehand, with Roger and Don having work plans with the Ponds clients before the match. And second, it's Peggy's twenty-sixth birthday. She receives an initially intriguing birthday present from Duck, the present which she quickly realizes is less substantial than at first glance.

Best Episode Of The Series
17 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Best episode of the series so far,the performances of Jon Hamm and Elizabeth Moss deserve every possible award. Written brilliantly like the rest of the series, the episode manages to deal with death and mourn as perfectly as possible, humanizing one of the most emotionally closed characters on television. Finally we have emotions that were kept in the seasons put out. 10/10
