Well, I guess I got my answer, but I'm not very happy about it. All season I have been expecting a death. I've posted quite a bit about it, but I didn't expect it to be a death under those circumstances. I really liked Lane. Why is it that the characters I like a lot are the ones to go? Recall that wonderful, funny lady that they hired as Don's secretary? They found her dead at her desk one day and hid her body by rolling her from office to office? I was so said to see her leave. Then there was the guy who was let go because a man (potential client) made a pass at him. IMO Weiner needs to send some of the nasty characters away and keep some good ones.
I wonder if Don recalls when Pete told on him that he was lying about his identity. Mr. Cooper said it didn't matter to him. He knew all he needed to know about Don and he would not be let go. I would say that Don might have recalled that incident when he was dealing with Lane.
I agree. Why show Sally's panties? That was really creepy IMO. Totally unecessary. Her looking down and grabbing the tissue made it quite clear.
