I loved the Republic of Dresses line, too.

I think Pete's "How have you been" comment over and over again shows that he was startled to see her there too.
Definitely, Gatzy. Joan's always fitting the narrative everyone writes for her in their heads, that she's written for herself. So Pete never thought for a second that things were anything other than how she'd described them.

I like that even though Pete is willing to pay for the dress, she's committed to remaining Sterling Cooper Joan in Pete's mind. So she makes "his problem" disappear without a trace.

I really like how Joan was sorta sniffing around the Pete scandal but she was so nonplussed by getting caught working that she didn't really even think about it. Her very slightly downcast eyes and that very last gesture of hers said it all. It's moments like that that I'm in awe of Christina Hendricks and this show.
Word, Mary. She conveyed so much with the slightest of movements. CH rocks.
