Storyline

Tension is rising at the firm as the date for making their pitch to Jaguar approaches. Don and most of the creative team are huddling in the conference room trying to get it right. Another complication arises when one member of the three man panel who will select the winning agency makes it clear that if they want any chance of winning, it will be necessary for Joan to spend the night with him. Joan scoffs at the idea but in the end demands a high price for her cooperation. Peggy Olson meanwhile decides the time may be right to get a job elsewhere. Freddy Rumsen encourages her and helps her get the word out. Megan meanwhile is excited at getting a call-back for a stage play but Don is only now realizing what that implies. Written by garykmcd

How to Succeed the Old Way ***1/2
28 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Our firm can land the Jaguar account providing that our red-head employee has a one night stand with one of their leading executives. This proves the culture existing in far too many of the businesses of yesteryear and probably currently.

Don shows that he is ethical when he complains that after all, our lady has a husband in Viet Nam and the baby. Yet, he is over-ruled by the other partners and our red-head pulls a real surprise. She will do it providing that she is made a partner with a 5% share.

Don shows little to no remorse when one of our lady workers leaves at the end of the episode and when his wife thought she'd be going to Boston on tour in a show.
