Peggy still feels caught in the middle of what is going on between Don and Ted. Behind closed doors, she sides with Ted, while she can be totally honest with Don. The situation at home - especially in an apartment in an neighborhood she both hates, that hatred which is strengthened by an incident involving Abe - makes her think more about her previous kiss with Ted. Pete is feeling dissatisfied with his prospects at the merged company, and thus looks for possible other opportunities. Roger is focused on the children in his life. While he tries to be grandfather to Margaret's son, Ellery, he would rather be father to his biological son, Kevin, with Joan. Joan has other thoughts on the matter and how best to move on with her less than happy life. Without their respective spouses for at least the first day, Don and Betty attend Bobby's camp, he who is happy to see his parents together again. As they are alone together without outside pressures of what they need to do to keep up pretenses... Written by
Did You Know?
In the last scene of this episode, Megan wears a white t-shirt with a large, red, five-pointed star on it (along with white panties). This outfit is identical to the one that model and actress Sharon Tate wore (albeit while also dowsed with water and holding a bow and arrow) in a 1967 photo shot for Esquire magazine. The daughter of that shoot's photographer recognized the outfit and tweeted Mad Men's costume designer, Janie Bryant, to ask if the photo of Tate had indeed inspired Megan's costuming, and Bryant tweeted back that it was "no coincidence." Two years after the Esquire photo shoot, Sharon Tate was murdered by the Manson Family. See more

I'm thinking about how different you are, before and after. I love the way you look at me when you're like this. But then I watch it decay. I can only hold your attention so long.
