episode 8: the summer man

Last week's episode was easily in the top 5 of all Mad Men episodes. Words cannot express just how much I enjoyed that episode.

So the big question is how will Weiner follow up last week's epic episode? 

(And how long until Weiner finds a way to fire the person who accidentally posted the clips to episode 8 on the AMC website instead of episode 7.)

Episode 8: The Summer Man

Joan and Peggy deal with high-jinx in the office.

I am so disappointed in Joey. He showed such promise but turned out to be a misogynistic ass.

"all you’ve done is prove to them that I’m a meaningless secretary, and you’re a humorless bitch.”
Sadly, Joan is right. Peggy exerted her authority and fired Joey but it might not have been the right move. I'm not arguing that he didn't deserve to be fired (at least in today's world) but I think doing so is going to change things for Peggy. You saw a little bit of it in the reaction from the Harry, Stan and that other guy. Her relationships with the boys are going to change.

Joan would have quietly found a way to deal with him. It might have taken a bit longer, but Joan would have gotten rid of him. Poor Peggy thinks she's doing something good for Joan and once again it backfires.
