Jacquemetton, 3 November 2014
Author: Christian from Canada

Sharp writing from the taut team of the Jacquemettons for their final episode and the season's penultimate powerhouse piece.

Sally estranges both her parents as an adolescent in a broken family may well do. Her escapades and transgressions are terribly fun and at the same time frightening, save for her loyal friend who comes to the rescue.

Don spiralling down into alcoholism and Ted falling head over heels with Peggy make for great drama that plays out in a epic devious meeting shenanigans that shake things up in a subversive if not exactly subtle way. Echo and resonance will resolve nicely with a great contrast in the next episode where Don's big meeting shuffles all the card by its brutal honesty and humanity trying to win HERSHEY'S account (or perhaps not).

These last two episodes are so strong that the series could have easily exited with the pinnacle of this pioneer series.
