I'm so glad the writers finally gave January Jones some material that really allows her to show Betty's depth. I've always thought Betty was more complex than she appeared on the surface and that JJ was a really good actress: it's hard to play those "simple" characters sometimes. That moment the next morning when Betty was sitting at the table with the kids, still wearing the dress from the night before, hair disheveled, was terrific. After all the years of Betty being the perfect little wife, Don had no idea how to deal with her that way. He's just sort of humored her and patted her on the head all this time. I'm happy to see she's finally had enough. I'm interested to see if anything changes in their relationship or if they just go back to the way things were.Originally Posted by hepcat;3198561;
The tension between Peggy and the minister is really intriguing. I can't figure out if there's a sexual component to it or not. I'm enjoying Colin Hanks in the role though.
I really felt for Joan when she just got shoved aside and a man was given that job: a man who clearly had no clue how to do the job. Peggy finally got ahead in that office, but things haven't changed so much that any other woman would do the same, I guess. I think the difference is that Peggy has managed to pretty much completely de-sexualize herself while Joan, well, Joan hasn't. I doubt that she even could if she wanted to.
