In the fourth episode, Don is sick and dreams that he kills a former lover named Andrea because he felt that she would threaten his marriage to Megan. In the fifth episode, Lane strikes up an account with Jaguar, but it gets ruined when the guys take him to a brothel. Pete is in a driver’s education class and hits on a younger girl. Don and Megan go to Pete and Trudy’s house for dinner. In the conference room, Pete and Lane duke it out over Pete’s insults at Lane. Pete is defeated.

In last week’s episode, Peggy can’t satisfy the guys at Heinz with her pitch, so she satisfies a random guy in a movie theater. Roger and Jane take LSD with some friends and they both realize that they don’t want to be married to each other anymore. Don leaves Megan at the Howard Johnson’s in upstate New York after they fight and she ends up taking the bus home. Is their marriage going to survive?
