  • Stop reading if you aren't caught up on Mad Men. Alexa Alemanni, who plays Allison, says of her character's decision to sleep with Don, "Matt and I talked about that lot. I think when she goes over there, she really has every intention of getting him in the apartment, and making sure he's okay, and then continuing on with her night - you get the impression that she's done it before. And then I think it really all changes when he grabs her hand. What Matt and I talked about is that it's probable that when she first started working there, she probably had a little crush on him, and that physical contact kind of brings up all those thoughts and that regret. She definitely makes that conscious decision to kiss him back, and I think it's really understandable how it would happen." [N.Y. Magazine]
