DON DRAPER'S 22nd ADULTEROUS
AFFAIR YIELDS UNEXPECTED
by Winsip Custer CPW News Service
While seeking treatment at Cedars of Sinai Hospital, Don Draper, having blamed his wife's infection on a previously undisclosed tryst with a diseased tow-truck driver, is left balancing his sudden role as Mad Man and housekeeper-father-mom with his continued affairs through which he passes his unchecked syphilis around like Life Savers at a spin-the-bottle party. In Episode 423, writer Matthew Weiner has placed a temporary office worker named Harry Weiner on top of the new Xerox machine where he photographs his penis, mailing copies to several of the office workers, one of which falls into the hands of a gay Mad Man who offers the temp a temporary place to stay. Locked in each others arms they rejoice in their passionate love making by one proclaiming, "thank God we don't have to worry about anything like Draper and his poor, dumb blond, syphilis-riddled wife."
