episode 4: the rejected

Last week Joan survived being stitched up her husband and Don and Lane hit the town. This week we get an episode with Pete.

Epsidoe 4: The Rejected

An edict from Roger and Lane puts Pete in a personal dilemma.

One can only imagine what is going to happen this week with Pete.

Suzanne (?) was a little vulnerable, but definitely met him half way
Hmmm ... I don't recall her.

I think I'd hold Don more than 51% accountable. Only because he's her boss and a power relationship like theirs is no place for sex.
Yes. This.

Like Jane and Roger or Joan and Roger. Not advisable, but Jane and Joan seemed very happy to be involved with Roger and not at all afraid for their jobs or their hearts.
Right. In both of Roger's instances of involvement with SC employees, there seemed to be no question that the women were as interested as he was. We're presented the Roger/Joan relationship as in progress for a while, but -- and perhaps this is because Joan knows Roger is married -- Joan knows she doesn't have anything to worry about.

Even doing someone else's secretary would have been better than Allison.

Plus...I would think a responsible man of that era would want to be very careful with a woman's "virtue." A good guy would know the difference between a Midge and an Allison -- in terms of the stakes for her and act accordingly.
Absolutely. Allison is concerned with issues of "virtue." Midge left that behind a long time ago, because she's ahead of her time in terms of owning her sexuality and defining it any damn way she pleases.

Having said all that, in no way am I suggesting that I saw Don force himself on Allison.
I know you're not. :-) She was a 100 percent willing participant in their sexual activity; she could've pulled away from Don if she wanted to. We seem to agree that Allison's problems start when she thinks taking off her panties (well, that seemed to be about all she removed) means anything more to Don than getting laid.
