...while on a different couch, Jane is waiting when Roger arrives home. He tries to blow by her into the bedroom, claiming he's exhausted, but she has a surprise for him - a box of bound copies of his book. I was wondering at first if she had them done herself, but the back cover has an artist's rendering of him, which I can't imagine anyone but an actual publisher would bother doing. Still, I wonder whom he got to put it out. Jane asks Roger to personalize it, which he does in an extremely mechanical manner, even though he signs it for his "loving wife." She puts her arms around him and tells him she's so proud, but he, knowing how little there is actually to be proud of, merely looks forlorn and lost, much like a little boy who likes chocolate ice cream but is only allowed to eat vanilla. (I will never get tired of referencing that.)
Megan and Don are done and getting dressed, and he asks, "You want to grab a bite?" Do you have a death wish, man? She tells him that what she wants is for him to go home and sleep and not drink any more tonight, and he kisses her before taking off, with her even addressing him as "Mr. Draper" before he leaves. Now that is a secretary who may make it here.
Don arrives home to find Faye about to slip something under his door, and after he neutrally notes that he didn't expect to see her, she explains that she was going to call, but didn't want to "do this" over the phone. Thinking she's talking about breaking up, he somewhat pissily replies, "So you were gonna write it on an envelope," but she declines to, um, address that, instead asking if she can come in. He wordlessly agrees, and then braces himself for the talk, but she shocks him by instead saying she got him a meeting with Heinz. "They're at Ketchum MacLeod and they're restless." He can only bring himself to say her name, so she goes on that she thought about what he said and what he means to her. Only now feeling the guilt over what happened with Megan, he tells her she didn't have to do this, as if backpedaling now wouldn't be completely disingenuous even without the cheating component, but she tells him she wanted to. Damn, I did not want to see her get hurt, although it's possible she never has to know. He asks if she'd like to stay, and the answer is an eager yes, and when he tells her how tired he is, she leads him to the couch and asks him just to sit with her. She leans her head on his chest, and they silently share their compromised feelings as Jim Reeves's "Welcome To My World" most fittingly kicks us to credits. Two more to go!
