Pete and His Father-in-Law Run Into Each Other at a Brothel
Episode Six, "For Immediate Release"
Getting caught cheating on your wife? Mad Men's been there, done that. But running into your father-in-law while you're cheating on your wife? Now that made for some jaw-dropping television. Ever since his disastrous affair with Beth Dawes last season, Pete's marriage to Trudy is hanging on by a thread, so it wasn't a surprise to see him at a brothel with fellow mystery accounts man Bob Benson. Seeing Tom Vogel, on the other hand, was not on the agenda. As usual, Pete was the one who ended up with the short end of the stick. Invoking a common double standard, Tom chastised his son-in-law for hurting his precious daughter, saying nothing of his own infidelities, and he summarily withdrew his account, Vick Chemical, from SCDP.
