For some reason I stopped watching the show after the 5th episode. Since the show has been renewed for a second season, and that second season premiered last Sunday, I felt obligated to watch the entire run. Well actually, I had planned on doing so. There are a couple of shows like that I haven’t yet had the time to watch, like the last season of the 4400, second season of Big Love.

Don’s about to be made partner. Peggy continues to excel at her copywriting job. She asks for a desk. Don tells her that Joan will find a replacement secretary and that she will get a desk to do her assignments. Peggy is pleased.
Pete steals the box that Adam sent his half-brother Don from Don’s office.

Don’s little brother mails the a box to Don Draper. He puts some money out and hangs himself.
Peggy has put on a lot of weight. Joan is told by Don to continue taking care of the catering side of things.
The boys come to see Don. They show him a device which can make people lose weight with electricity. They boys laugh at Peggy. She’s gotten really fat. Someone suggests using Peggy again. She was successful with the Belle Jolie campaign. Don calls Peggy in. Don wants her to try the weight-loss belt.
Peggy has become bloated as a whale. I can’t tell if the actress actually put on weight, or if they it’s prosthetic make-up. Peggy is trying on the belt at home. Once it’s switched on, she quickly takes it off and kicks it. I’m thinking that it was stimulating her genitals in some fashion.
Betty is going to bed alone. Don is in bed with Rachel.
The next day, Peggy comes in with her report on the weight-loss belt. She tells him that it vibrates. The way that it does, it stimulates the genitals. It’s not related to weight-loss. Don wants Peggy to think about it deeply. Then forget about it. An idea will jump up in her face.
Betty gets a visit from an AC salesman. She’s not interested. He wants a glass of water and she obliges. He measures a few things and writes down an estimate for her. She thinks twice before letting him up to their bedroom. She tells him that Don would prefer Sears.
Cooper managed to calm down Lucky Strike. He needs Don to work on them.
Rachel is having lunch with her sister. Rachel tells her that she is seeing a goy and that he’s married.
Don isn’t happy when Betty tells him that she let a salesman into their home.
Roger comes back to the office. He doesn’t look like himself. His wife is with him. They have Joan put some make-up on Roger to make him look better. He tells her that she is the finest piece of ass that he’s ever had. It’s making Joanie cry.
The Lucky Strike people are there. Don arrives with Roger in tow. Cooper is in the meeting as well. He tries to reassure them, but he has another heart-attack. Mona isn’t happy. Preston isn’t happy about losing Sterling.
The boys talk about losing Sterling and Draper. They think that Draper will become partner.
Peggy is on a date. It doesn’t go well. The next day, Peggy presents her pitch on the weight-loss device. They all think that she did good work.
While Betty is doing the laundry, her washing machine starts to make a lot of noises. She comes close to it and images the AC salesman ravishing her.
Peggy wants a raise. She tells Don, who is astounded how much money she makes. Cooper tells Don that Roger went home. Cooper wants to make Don a partner. Don accepts. Cooper tells him to hire someone for Head of Accounts Services. Pete comes barging in. Pete congratulates Don.
Don tells Peggy that she can have her 5$ a week raise. She can go home now. Joan will find someone to fill her desk while she tends to her assignments.
Pete goes into Don’s office and sees the package from Adam. He takes it.
Don tells Betty that he made partner. Peggy is fat and alone at home. She uses the electricity belt to stimulate her privates.
