In one of Mad Men's more controversial episodes, a representative for potential client Jaguar requests one night in heaven with Joan in exchange for a guarantee that SCDP will land the sports-car account. Don, disgusted that the offer was even presented to his longtime colleague – who ultimately agrees to the deal for the price of a partnership – goes to Joan's apartment the night before the Jaguar pitch in an attempt to stop her from degrading herself for the sake of the company. The way Joan's eyes fall signals that Don is too late – she's already done the deed.
