mad men: "out of town"

My show is back!

When last we left the good people of Sterling Cooper a lot of things happened. I'm not going to attempt to summarize. I don't have that kind of time. 

Season 3, Episode 1: Out of Town
Salvatore and Don take a business trip out of town. Pete Campbell and Ken Cosgrove worry about the changes at Sterling-Cooper and how the changes will impact them.

The times are a changing.... so grab your martini and come discuss the changes -both personal and professional - in the lives of Don, Betty, Joan, Peggy, Pete and the rest of the gang.

Boy, that Don backstory was hard to watch, huh?
Yes, Mary. It tells us a bit why Don is being exceptionally (for him) sweet and attentive to Betty: He associates childbirth with death.

Someone (Goodman, probably) tipped me to the line "His name is Dick, after a wish his mother should have lived to see." Funny, and a touch sad, presuming that Dick ("Did you know I'm a whore child?") heard that story, too.

That backstory further illuminates why Dick would want to shed his original identity: His mother died giving birth to him.
