Lane is struggling to find where he belongs in the new firm, and so he decided he was going to assert himself on "Mad Men" (Sun., 10 p.m. ET on AMC). He did so by landing a potential deal with a new client. Only, Lane isn't properly equipped to land a client. What nobody knew was that the client was basically already landed.
Instead, Lane flubbed his first attempt to find common ground with the client, and then things went completely off the rails when Pete, Roger and Don took him to a brothel. There, Pete tried to assert his authority with one of the ladies, as he continues to be dissatisfied.
In that, Pete has been consistent since the pilot episode. As much as he has -- and Don is under the impression that Pete is living the dream -- it's never enough for Pete. He has to try and take down Roger at every turn as an old fossil, and then he tells Lane he's useless.
This affront leads Lane, who's struggling with his own feelings of uselessness, to challenge Pete to a fight, and subsequently knock him to the ground. That's not going to help Pete's own insecurities and dissatisfaction. At this point, what would satisfy him?
"Mad Men" continues Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on AMC.
