The Mountain King, the 25th episode of Mad Men and the 12th of season two, was first broadcasted on October 19, 2008 with a script by Matthew Weiner & Robin Veith and directed by Alan Taylor.
Don renews his acquaintance with his old friend Anna, the widow of the man whose identity Don stole years before. Pete’s family problems affect Sterling Cooper’s account with Clearasil. Joan introduces her fiancé Greg to the employees of Sterling Cooper. When Joan shows Greg inside Don’s office, Greg rapes her.

A pretty solid and intense episode with a lot of great performances from the main cast, good drama, and good storytelling all throughout the episode.
