for just a second, here?
WHAT IS HAPPENING?!?!?!
I find it really ironic—true to life, but ironic—that when Don decides to straighten up and fly right (he’s not sleeping around, he’s “not even drinking that much”, etc.), everyone is against him. Joan and Peggy are treating him like crap (ungrateful, much?), his “partners” certainly aren’t being very partner-y, Megan is totally in meltdown mode out in CA. It seems like the only one who even attempts to understand him is his daughter!
Also—why are we focusing on Pete at all? Pete needs to go away. And Betty? What is happening there? If we’re not going to have more Betty/Don/Bobby (or other kid) fun stuff happening, then why are we even talking about them? Give Betty something to do, or just….yeah, don’t. That whole farm trip? What was its point? To show that Betty is still a fairly crappy mom?
I’m displeased right now, Mad Men.
