Election night arrives and the staff of Sterling Cooper has a party while watching the returns. The election is close and it's obviously going to be a long night. Now a senior partner in the firm, Don Draper must hire a new head of account services, a post that Pete Campbell yearns for. Aware of Draper's secret past, he tries to strong-arm him into giving him the job. With his secret out, Don panics and he asks Rachel Menken to run away with him. Regaining his composure, Don calls Pete's bluff leading to a confrontation with Bert Cooper.

We have seen a photo of Dick and Adam Whitman dated 1944. Adam appears to be about 8 or 9 years old. In this episode Dick/Don looks out at the train platform in 1950, at his stepmother Abigail, her husband, "Uncle Mack," and Adam, who still appears to be 8 or 9. See more
I have to bring this up to you. Only because I believe if I kept it from you in the end it would be damaging to Sterling Cooper. It has come to my attention, completely by accident, that Donald Draper here is not who he says he is. His real name is Dick Whitman, but Dick Whitman died in Korea ten years ago. It stands to reason that he is a deserter at the very least and who knows what else.
