mad men: 'the fog'

A third of the season is over already. I can't believe that! But I'm going to focus on all the episodes left in this season.

Season 3, Episode 5: The Fog
Betty and Don deal with Sally. Pete pursues a new angle in business. Betty has a strange dream.

Remember to track and come back.

There's some interesting race commentary in this episode. Hollis is terrified when Pete stops the elevator, his mind races to saying how he doesn't want to get into trouble. It was all benign small talk up to that point for him.

Weiner learned dream sequences from David Chase over at The Sopranos, so everything in Peggy's dream means something. Some of it is probably obvious, but this one I know: When Betty's mom says "You see what happens to people who speak up?" The black man sitting next to her is Medgar Evers, whom Sally had been peppering Miss Farrell with questions about. And who was assassinated on June 12, 1963, hours after JFK gave a speech on civil rights.

Meanwhile ... I agree Gatzy, we have not seen the last of Miss Farrell in connection with Don. But yes, kudos to Don for keeping his pants on for four consecutive episodes now. That must be some kind of record.

More from me later.

Remember to track and come back.
I always do. Even if it's the evening of the 20th, I'll come back and talk to anybody. :-)
