For Pete's Sake

I liked seeing Lane bruise Pete's ego a bit on the last episode of Mad Men. Other than that, the episode dragged. This season, as a matter of fact, is not to my liking but that's beside the immediate point at hand.

What I liked even more about this scene is Don and Sterling's desire to see them fight in the work place.

Pete is spiraling down this season. His spiraling, however, is covered by a cloud of success and his colleagues don't seem to see it as all they're observing at face level is the sweet smell of success that his work is providing. However, Beethoven's music in the background and his obsession with artillery and belligerence might just be a foreshadowing of things to come.

In the meantime, Lane: 1 - Pete: 0.
