For the past two seasons, Mad Men 's Ted Chaough has been a thorn in Don Draper’s back — the arch rival who tried to poach clients and employees while also stooping to prank calls. Now that CGC and SCDP have merged, though, the rivalry has become an outright mano-a-mano showdown.

Last week's terrific "Mad Men" episode was the best of the season so far and set up a storyline we expect to see continue through the rest of Season 6: SCDP's merger with CGC, which makes Don and Peggy co-workers again.These sneak peek photos for Sunday's "Man with a Plan," however, focus on the SCDP crew.

And Don apparently isn't feeling the buzz he had during last week's action.Does this mean trouble ahead for the merger, or are these images completely unrelated? Here's the vague episode description: "SCDP tries to pacify competing clients; an unexpected guest blind-sides Pete."
