Don has a less than satisfying telephone conversation with Dawn, the ultimate problem being Don's remote location and Dawn having other priorities in the office. Then, Don has a telephone conversation with Alan Silver, Megan's agent, which leads to Don making a last minute trip to Los Angeles to surprise Megan. The surprise also ends up being ultimately less than satisfying for both. Next, Don sets up a meeting with Dave Wooster to talk business, which again ends up being a little less than Don wanted. All these events make Don come to the realization that he wants and is ready to go back to work at Sterling Cooper. As such, he talks to the one partner he believes is on his side: Roger. After speaking to Roger, what Don anticipates when he walks back into the office and what happens are two totally different things. Beyond each partner's belief when Don was put on leave, what happens is affected by an earlier meeting in which Harry was required to put out a fire on behalf of Jim. ... Written by Huggo

God I hate peggy
5 May 2018 | by AppaloniaRSee all my reviews

Who does she really think she is so nasty they should have wrote her horrible character out ages ago. Having only just watched the series now on Netflix I'm starting to really not enjoy it anymore it's the way the company is I hate that awful old man danzer and who does Joan I got my shares by default think she is now. This seriously has ruined the show no wonder this is the last season...
