After what many perceived to be a lackluster episode 5, this past week Mad Men responded with what could very well be one of the best episode the series has ever aired. "The Strategy" provided so much interaction between so many characters, delving into story lines that had gone quiet and giving us some of the most heartfelt scenes the series has ever produced. Needless to say, I am so pumped for 10pm!

Speaking of which, many people, including Tom and Lorenzo, weren't big fans of Joan's blue look above. I personally love this "relaxed" type look for Joan.

- Check out the real Burger Chef they used to shoot the scenes
- And I will leave you with this, my favorite scene from last week:
