Don Draper and Megan hit a rough patch as she kisses another man... and gets propositioned by a married couple
There's no doubt it's the swinging sixties in Mad Men - as Don Draper and his wife find themselves propositioned by a dope-smoking married couple.
Don - played by Jon Hamm - and Megan (Jessica Pare) had gone out for dinner with Megan's director and his wife on her soap opera, Berkshire Falls.
It came after Megan learned she had landed a love scene on the daytime TV show, to Don's anger.

Taste of freedom: Megan Draper (Jessica Pare) has an affair on the set of her soap opera -- much to the anger of husband Don Draper (Jon Hamm)
As the fancy meal drew to an end Mel, the director, made a suggestion.
'We'll go back to my pad, smoke some grass and see what happens,' he said.
'Sounds like fun,' said Megan, as Don looked pained.
'I don't know. It's late,' he said, flustered.
Close eye: Don cringed as he watched from the sidelines
Opportunity knocks: Megan was excited for the role, meaning her character would have more screen time
Not happy: Don was angered by the scene -- despite not having watched an episode before
Mel and Arlene tried again - but were knocked back.
Mel told Don: 'I could cast you, you know that?'
'I'm sure he's a man who plays many roles,' said Arlene.
'We like Megan, and we like you. And we'd like to be friends,' he said.
'I guess it's not impossible for us, under the right circumstances, to become better acquainted. It may not work. It's a chemistry experiment.'
Whore: 'You kiss people for money,' Don scolded her
Harsh critic: Don scolded Megan for 'enjoying' her love scene
Battle: The two had a terse argument after the scene in Megan's dressing room
Broken: Megan burst into tears after Don called her a whore
After making a quick exit, Don and Megan fled in a cab.
'They are so out in the open,' she said.

I can tolerate it: Don gave Megan a pass -- but just this once
Earlier Megan began to worry when she found out he had got the new storyline.
'It's pretty exciting,' she admitted.
'The hard part is how James Garner there will deal with it,' her co-star Arlene said, pointing to a photo of Don.
'Some people think it's better to wait 'til after it's happened, or not tell them at all, but I think it's best to be upfront.'
'Obviously he's not going to like it,' Megan fretted.
New friends: Don and Megan go to dinner with Megan's director
Special friendship: Mel and Arlene proposed that the couple try a 'swinging' relationship
Questionable motives: Megan wondered if the couple's love for her was the reason she was granted the steamy scene
And she was later seen anxiously telling Don - who has been cheating on her with a downstairs married neighbor Sylvia - about the scene.
'It's just kissing and hugging, it's TV, you can't really do anything,' she said.
'I guess if I wasn't your husband I would be happy for you.
'Honey, I can tolerate this but I can't encourage it,' he told her.
Innocent: Megan seemed almost unknowing of their sexual advances
Spicy offer: The couple instead offered for Don and Megan to come over to smoke

And at the end of the AMC episode, titled To Have and To Hold, Don was seen lurking on set as Megan filmed the scene.
Dressed in a sexy French maid's outfit she kissed then lay on the bed with her hunky young male co-star.
'You like to watch, do you?' asked Arlene, who sidled up next to Don before the scene cut.
'What are you doing here?' Megan asked angrily.
'I didn't expect you to enjoy it,' he hit back before asking her if she was planning to brush her teeth before going home to him.
Not so innocent: Don has been having an affair with their downstairs neighbor Sylvia
Wanting: Don finds himself drawn to Sylvia several times during the episode
Secret code: Sylvia leaves a penny under the doormat to let Don know her husband is away
'This is my career,' she said as she got angry with him for never having visited her on set before.
'You kiss people for money. You know who does that?' asked Don, who grew up in a whorehouse.
'Why don't you have dinner with Arlene and Mel tonight? They're much more open minded,' Don growled before storming off, as Megan burst into tears.
Wandering: Don has had troubles with being faithful
Special pair: Don and Megan are close friends with Sylvia and her husband Arnold
Say a little prayer: Sylvia revealed that she keeps Don in her prayers
His hypocrisy was then hammered home as he was seen bedding Sylvia, who said she prays for him after he asked her to remove a crucifix necklace she was wearing.
'I pray for you to find peace,' she said. Earlier she and Don had kissed in the elevator between floors in their building before telling him how she would signal that her husband was away.
'I'll leave a penny under the mat when he's flown the coop.'
Back at the office: Don is stressed by a secret account
Inspiration: Don and Stan light up as they work on the Heinz account
Competitive edge: Don's willingness to smoke shows that he's looking for creativity in new places
Meanwhile the episode also saw the creation of a top secret team - Project K - at ad agency Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce [SCDP] in a bid to win the lucrative Heinz ketchup account.
Don and creative Stan shared a joint as they tried to dream up a new ad for the sauce.
The two men and Pete Campbell later met the Heinz execs in a hotel room to pitch their idea.
But it fell a little flat.
'The greatest thing you have working for you is the imagination of the consumer,' Don told them.
Big pitch: Don and Stan have their fateful meeting with Heinz
Taking the lead: Don seemed sure of his idea, knowing it could land him a big account
Smooth: The pitch is where Don really flourishes
The sell: Don's campaign echoed the modern tastes of the late sixties
As they left the meeting they were stunned to find Peggy Olson, Don's one-time protege and her new boss - and Don's rival - Ted Chaough waiting outside for a meeting of their own.
She got wind of Heinz' unhappiness with their advertisers after Stan let the news slip.
And despite her reservations about trying to profit from the potentially lucrative bit of information her boss Ted encouraged her to act on it.
Foiled: After the pitch, Don learns that Peggy was also meeting with Heinz
At attention: Peggy is a natural, even as the only woman in the room
Impressed: Don eavesdrops on the meeting
Letdown: The trio later learn that Peggy has won the Heinz account
A humbled Don then eavesdropped on Peggy's presentation by listening in behind the door.
'I always say, 'If you don't like what they're saying, change the conversation', she said - a line Don himself said almost word for word in an earlier episode.
As the SCDP team gathered in a bar afterwards, Peggy and Ted came in - and revealed they had won.
Don refused to acknowledge her before leaving to go and see Megan on set.
And there was more bad news as they learned they had lost another arm of Heinz business as a result of the covert meeting.
