The Other Woman

Series 5 - Episode 11 The Other Woman



Just when you think Mad Men has quietly died, strangled by the impossible height of our expectations, it delivers an episode as powerful as a punch to the stomach. Its closing moments will leave fans in puddles of tears, as the deepest emotional resonances are contained in the most simple and heartbreaking of gestures.

But first the struggling Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce has to deal with a toxic question, an indecent proposal involving a wobbly-jowled Jaguar boss and glorious Joan, who’s referred to by this prince among men as “that dynamite redhead built like a B52”.

The entire Jaguar account rests on Joan’s answer, and when the nature of the proposition becomes painfully clear, it’s up to Pete Campbell to fulfil his destiny
as a skunk and a lowlife: a brilliant portrayal of soul-sucking amorality by Vincent Kartheiser.


Don assembles an all-male team for the company's most important pitch to date - leaving Peggy feeling more sidelined than ever. As her resentment grows, she decides to take action. A lucrative offer places Joan in an awkward position, while Megan faces a turning point in her fledgling acting career as she gets ready for a big audition. Drama, starring Jon Hamm and Elisabeth Moss.
