  • Sally just became the most important woman in Don's life

'Mad Men' recap: The 13 best gifs and tweets

February, 1969, was a rough time to be:

a. A woman

b. African-American

c. A secretary

d. Don Draper's daughter

And so it was an especially difficult time to be Dawn and Shirley, the two African-American secretaries around whom much of the office drama spun on Sunday night's "Mad Men" -- much of it as a result of "D" on the list above, who once again inconveniently stumbled upon one of her dad's secrets.

Though, in the most condensed and oversimplified TV episode recap ever, Dawn got a big promotion and Sally melted Don's heart in the end, so everything's GREAT!

Unless you're Peggy...

... or Pete.

Though right before his hissy fit, Pete did at least receive some valuable advice. (Other than, "Maybe it's time you ditched the plaid pants and knotted sweater?")

Though back to the bigger theme here:

Entirely possible. But the sequence of events ignited by ol' Scorched Earth Lou here resulted in a big move (literally) for Joan and the promotion of Dawn the Scapegoat to Head of Personnel.

It also indirectly led to Don Draper having his heart skip a beat for the first time in his adult life. The feels, Don. You just got hit with all the feels.

Nice thought, but that would mean we never see L.A. Pete again. So... see you next week.
