Tonight’s episode of Mad Men was explosive! Did you catch the show? If not, we’ve got a super detailed (almost 3,000 words) recap of the show for your perusal right here. If you’ve seen it, then you’re either feeling really sad for Pete or Lane…so which is it?
WARNING: This post contains spoilers for last night’s Mad Men episode, so if you have yet to see it, avert your eyes now.
In a nutshell, we’ll briefly review the events that unfolded on last night’s episode of Mad Men, titled, Signal 30.
Pete goes to driver’s ed classes to get his license and tries to hit on a young high school girl there. The guys convince Lane to let them take out his new client Edwin and get the Jaguar account. They all end up taking him to a brothel and he has a fun time. That was Edwin’s wife calls up Lane’s wife and bawls about finding “bubblegum in his pubis.”
Apparently that has cost the agency the Jaguar account and Edwin’s life is ruined. Pete lambastes Lane, telling him that Edwin didn’t ask him because he thinks Lane is gay. Pete proceeds to tell Lane that he outlived his usefulness the day they fired him when Sterling Cooper was bought out by the British.
Lane tells Pete that they are going to “address that insult” as he takes off his jacket and rolls up his sleeves. Lane and Pete duke it out and Lane gets the best of him. Joan visits Lane in his office and he kisses her. Lane is truly unhappy.
Beaten down in the elevator, Pete tells Don that he has nothing.
Before fighting, Lane refers to Pete as a “grimy little pimp”.
Also before fighting, Roger comments that he can’t be the only one who wants to see this and then later says that his money was on Lane.
Who were you rooting for when Lane and Pete started fighting?
