When I learned that this week’s episode was going to be called “Commissions and Fees,” it felt logical. After the entire build-up over the season — and particularly the punch-to-the-gut quality of last week’s episode, “The Other Woman” — it seemed that there would be a build-up of accounts to settle. And yeah, that’s kind of what happened, so step away from the door if you don’t want to see the spoilers inside.

Another week, another Mad Men, and this time around we’re focusing on Pete Campbell. Having achieved a good measure of business success, Pete is now forced to deal with meaning. Married, with a child, living in Cos Cob (a neighborhood of Greenwich, Connecticut), Pete evidently feels that his life is repetitive and mundane, like the leaking faucet that frames this story. Drip, drip, drip…
That’s the appetizer. Now, if you want to stay away from discussing the drama until you’ve had a chance to watch, step away from the table now. The entree is about to arrive.
