That week went way too fast. Here we are another Sunday night and a new episode of Mad Men.

Episode 2: Christmas Comes But Once a Year
A last minute visitor threatens to spoil the agency's Christmas party.

Something tells me this is going to be an interesting Christmas party. (How retro... we're actually calling it a Christmas party.)

Don, yet again this season, forgetting his own playbook. Don doesn't sleep with his secretaries
Excellent point, Amybabe. That was an important part of the Don Draper image, not fishing off the company pier. I think it's an ancillary part of him being so angry at Roger going after Jane. (It was mostly about leaving Mona.)

In Don's mind, it was OK to have mistresses, but not OK to break up the family. (I know, as if infidelity wouldn't do that.) But here in '64, reminded all too well (by Christmas) that he's brought about a separation from his family, he's well off his game. Susceptible to forgetting his own rules.
