And yes, while there are certainly elements of the chick-lit beach read here—some tender relationships, a sprinkle of sentimentality, a romance or twelve—it would be highly unfair to categorize it as so, because this book smashes that label to pieces and even transcends whichever other label one might try to apply to it. Walter is a skilled writer. For such a short book with its surprisingly large cast of characters, including believe it or not Richard BurtonWalter manages to do draw out each of them fully and beautifully, flaws and all.
August 24th, New York is in decay. In California, he tells the people from Madison Square Garden, everything is shiny and new: And yet for New York, as Don quite rightly pointed out, it is quite the opposite. When Kinsey spoke earlier of the Roman ruins having been torn down, he was arguing for why Penn Station needed to remain; when Don evokes the same sense of decay, he sees it as a catalyst upon which change can be sold.
When the artwork for Madison Square Garden arrives, it evokes Metropolis, and the entire concept is sold as a city on a hill. For Peggy, meanwhile, her life as a copywriter becomes separated from her life at home, where her cynical distaste for an ad campaign brings to the surface personal insecurities stemming from her rather eventful relationship history.
The decision from the London office to refuse the Madison Square Garden account is a fascinating one, because it really speaks to a few key points of the season. The first is that Don is right: Madison Square Garden opens doors for them in terms of potential future business, whether it be concert promotion or hotels, and would actually be one of the safest accounts they could acquire considering that such things are not likely to fade away as a fad or as a trend.
Don asks the logical question of why they bothered buying the company if they were going to refuse to allow it to do business in the logical Love among the ruins, and Lane Pryce stops and sighs: We know that the move was largely a power play by Duck, meaning little to the company itself beyond a chance to establish an American office, but that idea is ultimately outweighed by the London interests.
As such, Peggy goes on a journey to discover if she can sell herself in the way that can make her feel like she wants to dance and sing in front of a blue screen, although on her own terms. Her time in the office is part of the inspiration, certainly.
And when she expresses her concern over the artwork with Don, he tells it to her straight: This leaves Peggy with a sense that she has something to prove, and as such she sits down in a bar next to a young man and begins her flirtations.
In a lot of ways, this is where Peggy began at Sterling Cooper, sleeping with Pete largely in order to live up to the expectations of the secretarial pool. In the process, one wonders if Peggy worked out any of her demons, and potentially staved off her own sense of decay. Sure, it involved lying in various fashions, but I would tend to consider it a fairly empowering experience in if not the act itself then in the lessons she might be able to learn from it all.
Betty Draper was similarly marginalized, although she emerges here as her father arrives for a visit. Betty, unlike Peggy or Don, is not quite as able to live within the fantasy she might want to create for herself. Here, she reverts entirely back to a child-like mode, fitting considering she is dealing with her own father: As such, she lets Don make her decision for her, largely: Betty has to know that Don was responsible for all of this happening, but she wants to live inside of the lie.
Don is brokering the selling of decay in that moment, convincing these two siblings to accept a reality where their father is not so damaged as to need a home, accepting in the process that he will be the one waking up in the middle of the night to Gene dumping wine bottles down the sink in order to avoid being arrested for violating prohibition.
Don does a fine job selling Madison Square Garden in the episode, but the scene in the park as they watch the Maypole dance is particularly telling. On the one hand, you can read the scene as Don lusting after the Age of Aquarius-esque teacher, frolicking with the children in a playful fashion.
However, when the camera pans down to her feet, and we see Don touching the grass with his finger tips, what we realize is that he wants to be out there for himself. Really, that scene is at the heart of the episode, because the maypole dance is celebrating the growth of Spring when the episode is all about decay.
Is it because they to some extent agree with him, or see his passion as a good thing at the end of the day?
Roger gets a little storyline here, as his daughter is planning her wedding and expresses her desire for Jane to not be present so as to not embarrass her further: Peggy got pregnant as a result of her naive indiscretion, while Betty was pregnant when she chose to act similarly in her affair with the stranger.
