Suzanne Farrell is Sally Draper's former teacher; she first meets Don during a parent-teacher conference after his daughter misbehaves. Months later, Don gives Suzanne a lift home and, beguiled by her idealism, pursues her.
"I can't stop thinking about you," Don tells Suzanne one night, challenging her to admit the same. She's been thinking about him too, she says, but she can also project forward how a relationship with Don would end. "So what?" he replies. The two kiss.
Suzanne initially says that she doesn't care about Don's other commitments, "as long as I know you're with me." Later, though, she laments being unable to dine in public with Don. She also worries, she says, because he seems deeply unhappy.
Don and Suzanne plan a clandestine vacation, but it never takes place. (Unbeknownst to Suzanne, Betty has confronted Don about his true identity.) "Are you okay?" Suzanne asks when Don calls to break off the affair. "Only you would ask about me right now," he says.
