Even though I've seen the episode before, the moment where Roger was in the hotel still felt like he might kill himself.

In retrospect, I really hate Abe "next we'll have a protest for women's rights, ha ha" Drexler. Noooo, Peggy! Don't go down that road.

Peggy is such a boss in this episode. She hands Stan's ass to him and then goes right out and kills the Playtex presentation, even with lipstick on her teeth. Looking ahead a few episodes, she's basically the reason that SCDP stays together. Don certainly isn't out there actually winning new business, like Peggy does here and with the Topaz pantyhose account in episode 13. Don's too busy writing ill-advised letters to the Times and taking his kids to Disneyland to actually win accounts.

Plus (looking ahead one episode) Peggy actually gives Don the idea for the letter (like she gave him the idea for his Clio winning ad).

As the AV Club review points out: our first glimpse of Ray Wise, Ken's soon-to-be father in law.

Clearly reprising his role from Reaper.
