"Mad Men" keeps rolling on toward more drama.
In this episode, Pete takes the advice of his commuting companion on how to cheat, and ends up having an extramarital affair with the fella's wife, Beth, played by Alexis Bledel. He keeps trying to meet up with her, while she spends most of their time together putting the kibosh on any other rendezvous.
While Megan seems to have a knack for this whole copywriting thing, she'd much rather be following her dream of being an actress. So, she quits. However, Megan ditching Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce means that Peggy has to fill in as Don's wife for a Cool Whip commercial that is supposed to play off their easy chemistry. But since Don and Peggy don't have easy chemistry, their pitch is super awkward and Peggy ends up screaming at Don in a way she's probably wanted to do for, oh, five seasons now.
