Megan has been lying to her colleagues, including Don, about her whereabouts at certain times of the day. She is caught in the lie by both Don and Peggy. She is able to make up a credible enough excuse to Don, but Peggy confronts her on it. Based on that discussion, Megan decides to come clean to Don about what she's been doing. Don's reaction surprises her, which leads to a major change at SCDP. But Don's true reaction may actually be closer to what she had anticipated based on an encounter Don has with Peggy. Meanwhile, Pete is still feeling more fulfilled at work as clients, without even having met him, are giving him gifts. But he is feeling more and more restless at home, especially after he learns that his train commuting colleague Howard Dawes has embarked on an affair in the city. Taking a cue from Howard and given the opportunity, Pete embarks on a wannabe affair of his own, the "wannabe" part based on the insecurities of the other party. Written by
Did You Know?

Pete asks Beth to meet him at the Hotel Pennsylvania. The Hotel Pennsylvania (the hotel's original name) operated as The Statler Hilton during this time. It was not until 1992, after several change-of-hands, that the hotel was renamed to its original name, Hotel Pennsylvania. See more
That takes a lot of guts.
I'll tell you what takes guts: never having money for lunch. She owes me, like, $15 at this point. What am I gonna do - ask Don? Call her? I think it's clear why she left.
That's not why.
Come on, reality got her. You work your ass off for months, bite your nails - for what? Heinz Baked Beans.
