Wow. When Don kissed Peggy's hand, it nearly broke my heart. She doesn't know it, but she's getting out just in time. The rot has set in at SCDP. And while Pete deserves all the hate that will undoubtedly be sent his way, I was actually more disgusted at Roger. That's the supposed great love of his life and the mother of his son that he just helped pimp out.

The scenes between Don and Joan were hard to read for me too. You couldn't really tell whether Don was just personally offended by the auto dealer guy's disgusting demand of Joanie, or whether his ego was involved to the extent that he wanted his selling of the pitch to be the determining factor in winning Jaguar. There's a lot of uncertainty about what's going on in their heads in that whole exchange when he shows up to her apartment.
I'm surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet, but I think the fact that Don's (Dick's) own mother was literally a prostitute, and he was raised as the "whorechild", played a huge part in his reaction.
ETA; Loved seeing Peggy and Freddy together again too. The way he calls her "ballerina" is adorable.
