I guess this isn't a spoiler now that we've passed the episode, but I'll spoil it just in case:

Rich Sommer has talked about how Harry was supposed to kill himself at the end there, and Matt Weiner changed it last minute to keep him around because he liked the character.

As far as it would have been questionable to have 2 suicides as major plot points in season one alone, Harry taking his own life would certainly make his conversation with Don about the cave paintings/handprints and the absolute human desire to say "I was here, I meant something" that much more meaningful.

Salís actor certainly made the right decision by never coming backóitís almost comical how horrifically every later season cameo hosed up their lives. Kinsey? Boom! Joined a cult. Midge? Strong, independent female counterculture artist, well, time to spin the wheel of misery aaaaand: heroin addicted prostitute. Rogerís daughter? Hmm gonna go back to the ďcultĒ well I think.

This is an important ep as it confirms that Don isnít specced as an Illusionist, as you might have expected, but is in fact a single class Necromancer

Ted with the aviator shades, Roger being the happiest weíve ever seen him firing Burt, Peggy laying down the law for DonÖ.lotta great moments. Iíve never gelled with Don/l and Sylviaís dabbling into the dom/sub stuff even on rewatches.

Abe getting stabbed isnít quite on the level as the lawnmower scene but itís almost as good, and I love how completely banal he is with breaking up with Peggy in the ambulance.

mad men is extremely consistent in its messaging that smoking weed and dropping acid are not only cool as heck but will make you into a better, more self actualized person

e: heroin is bad though
