After Lane is fired, he gets drunk in the office and says some inappropriate stuff to Joan. If only his grieving ended there. He goes home to his wife to discover that she's bought him a new Jaguar, you know, as a reward for all that honest, hard work he's been doing. Rather than tell her what happened that day, he tries to kill himself inside his new vehicle, except the shoddy car won't start! I thought it would end there, but it doesn't. Eventually, when Lane doesn't show up for work and Joan can't open his door, it is discovered that Lane hanged himself in his office, leaving a note resigning at SCDP for his peers.
