Restructuring at the advertising agency Sterling Cooper demolishes Pete’s hopes of a promotion. Just as he is confiding in one of his colleagues about the situation, their conversation is interrupted by breaking news: President Kennedy has just been shot! Margaret Sterling’s wedding is planned for the next day and the whole Mad Men team is invited – including Don Draper and his wife’s lover. Kennedy dies, as does his alleged assasin Lee Harvey Oswald. The nation is glued to the television: the myth of a glorious America of the 60s is destroyed.
