The seventh episode of Mad Men's fourth season, entitled "The Suitcase," aired on September 5, 2010, on AMC. Here's a recap in case you missed it:

This episode of Mad Men opens in May 1965 as all the employees of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce are making big plans to watch the Muhammad Ali v. Sonny Liston rematch fight. Peggy is one of the few who doesn't have any plans for the fight since it is her birthday - she's planning on having a romantic dinner with her boyfriend, Mark. When old boyfriend Duck Phillips sends her a gift-wrapped box of business cards trying to entice her to join him in starting a new ad agency, she rejects him.

Elsewhere in the office, Don gets a message that Anna Draper's niece, Stephanie, needs to speak with him immediately. Knowing that this urgent message is likely grave news about Anna, Don cancels his plans to attend the Ali fight with Roger.

Before Peggy can depart the office for her birthday plans, Don calls her in to further review, and reject, the creative team's pitches for the Samsonite account. Despite Don's belittling treatment of Peggy she opts to stay and work through the evening on the account, though it costs her the dinner with Mark. Because of Peggy's choice to stay at work, Mark breaks up with her over the phone.

Peggy picks a fight with Don and the two wind up in an all-out shouting match. Once the tension is released, the pair sit down and share some laughs over some old tapes Don found of Roger dictating his memoirs. Peggy and Don wind up having dinner together, and both open up about their lives and their pasts. Don tells Peggy about his family, while Peggy mentions her past pregnancy - taking care not to reveal the identity of the baby's father.

Back at the office, Peggy rushes a drunken Don into the men's room to get sick. She then finds a drunken Duck Phillips wandering through the office shouting her name. Phillips confronts Don, accusing him of sleeping with Peggy. When Phillips calls Peggy a whore, Don and Phillips engage in a drunken, sloppy brawl.

Don and Peggy eventually fall asleep together on an office couch. Don dreams of Anna's ghost and in the morning he calls Stephanie to hear the news that Anna has died. Peggy comforts a sobbing Don.

Later that morning, Don sends Peggy home to freshen up - but not before he grabs her hand for a moment and the two exchange a meaningful look.
