forgot to enable answers before. duh.
I remember Matthew Weiner said once that while Don gave Peggy advice on how to handle the baby situation, “Move forward, this never happened, it will shock you how much…” that it’s not necessarily great advice. He was saying to her just pretend this never happened and repress it to the far back recesses of your mind, and Peggy has never quite dealt with it (from what we’ve seen on the show at least). So, I’m sure babies are still terrifying reminders of her past that she can’t stand to remember because she’s done everything to forget about that time of her life.
Really great point by Matt and by you, thank you for bringing it up! I think it was pretty bad advice, considering Don was soon to succumb to even more of his own deeply buried past as the show goes on. It’s surprising how much people can deceive themselves into thinking something never happened.
I would be like Henry, it wouldn’t deter me at all. She’s gorgeous!
We mods love her enough for the whole planet. (Something like that, I took happy pills tonight…) We do love her a lot though, and I think it’s just like it is with any of the other characters, but with her, it’s really like a Marmite thing. You love her or hate her.
I think what tends to happen with Mad Men previews is they either give nothing away at all or it appears completely different to how it’s going to turn out, thus still giving away nothing at all. I look at them like “Next time on Arrested Development…” more than I do actual hints to what’s going on.
Man, I wish I knew. Maybe he’ll just drink anything he can get his hands on, maybe they have the account.
It’s so true! They’ll gossip, but could turn on each other at any second. I see it now:
Don: I told you what happened. Two things were true: name change, I puked in the bathroom. Pay attention please.
Roger: YOU WERE ENGAGED NINETEEN F*&%ING TIMES?!?! PROSTITUTION WHORE.
I liked it because it made me start singing Florence + the Machine. Shake it out shake it out, Roger.
I totally agree with you. I got the giddies.
I don’t personally, since I couldn’t find a link that worked yesterday, but hopefully someone else has one!
YES! I felt the same way. Henry’s always been a good guy to me, and last season I thought he was going to be good for Betty, but him not telling her Don called definitely had me raising an eyebrow. But then, men back then (maybe even now?) were very into being the breadwinner and the caretaker, so Don knowing about something personal must have rubbed him up the wrong way.
I didn’t find it too bad, or all that different to Elisabeth Moss in season 1, to be honest! January Jones is also a really lithe woman; she was even when she was pregnant, so I don’t know if anyone could have done better.
