There is much going on at SCDP, both professional and personal. Don, Pete and Stan are the only people who are supposed to know about "Project K" (which is a presentation for Heinz Ketchup), as they had a clandestine meeting with Tim Jablonski behind Raymond Geiger's back. If they don't get the account no one is supposed to be the wiser. This three-man team gets a few surprises with regard to this work. Dawn is feeling vulnerable as the token black person on staff. Joan, whose resolve is strengthened by a visit by her old friend Kate, exerts her power at the office as she feels she is still treated as a glorified secretary despite being a full partner. And Harry helps Ken with a personal problem which he thinks will boost his career. These issues, in combination, result in a professional standoff between Harry and Joan. Meanwhile Megan's work is being noticed on the set of "To Have and to Hold" as she is given her first ever love scene, which she feels she needs to clear with Don. ...
Did You Know?
The ad presented to Heinz was rejected by the client but in march 2017 "David the agency" from Miami has in real life the account of the ketchup and they release the same idea giving credits to SCDP and Don Draper. The tagline was "Pass the Heinz" The director of the agency jokes about Don "we had a couple of Old fashioneds" ( If Don lived he would be 91 years old in 2017) See more
