Mad Men, Ep. 6.3, “The Collaborators”: Love and War

Mad Men, Season 6, Episode 3: “The Collaborators”

Written by Jonathan Igla and Matthew Weiner

Directed by Jon Hamm

Airs Sundays at 10pm Et on AMC

There is an undercurrent of war present in “The Collaborators,” exclusively in the scenes concerning infidelity. Pete flirts with his neighbors at a party and is struck with the news that North Koreans have taken captive a Us ship. A moment of post-coital bliss shared by Don and Sylvia is interrupted by news reports of the Tet Offensive. Dr. Rosen engages Don in discussion of both events at dinner before he has to take a call, leaving Don and Sylvia alone together. Johnny Carson is interrupted by a report from Vietnam as Pete anxiously awaits Trudy’s return. It’s worth pointing out that both these events—the Tet Offensive and the Pueblo affair—involved countries violating treaties.

The most electrifying declaration of war comes courtesy of Trudy Campbell.
