mad men: "love among the ruins"

It's so nice to come to the end of the weekend and look forward to something on tv. I love this show.  This week's episode for those of us that don't have the iTunes season pass and didn't get the release last Monday:

Episode 2: Love Among the Ruins
Betty gets a visit from her father. Sterling Cooper grapples with a very specific client request. Roger makes arrangements for a wedding. Peggy becomes personally affected by a campaign.

Roger planning a wedding? The writers love us. Grab your martini and join in the discussion.

She's clearly in a lot of pain, and, I think, feels that she *can't* or *won't* ask Don to have her father move in with them.
A, I was thrown by Betty's distress at her sister-in-law "getting" to be her dad's nurse. As if it were a prize to be won.

But I agree with you; it's about her own inability to ask for what she wants, combined with the physical pain of her pregnancy. To his credit, Don sizes up the situation immediately -- or, maybe he'd formulated the plan hours/days before, and was just waiting for the moment -- and makes it happen.
