Holy moly I'm not late again.

I thought it was very MM to have Betty plan to confront Don, wait up, then lock everything away and bide her time.

I loved Paul's revelation about Peggy. That was probably my favorite moment of the episode. Also, he reminds me of Orson Welles.

Absolutely, Mary. Much more "It's not TV. It's Mad Men" of them to play it that way.

I also love that it's the other secret -- THE secret, in comparison -- Don's been keeping from her that has Betty beside herself. Completely understandably beside herself, of course.

I loved Paul's revelation about Peggy. That was probably my favorite moment of the episode.
Do you mean the part about being Don's favorite and using Aqua Net? I loved that part.

Her reaction was even better: "Are you nuts? He hates me." That has to have been what she was thinking when she decided to have sex with Duck. ;-)

Also, he reminds me of Orson Welles.
You're not alone. :-)

No, I meant at the end of the episode, when they're in Don's office. Paul had been really frustrated over Peggy and now he'd lost his big idea...first Peggy offered sympathy, then she wisely suggested that Paul tell Don the truth, which got him off the hook. Then she spun Paul's comment into a great idea for the campaign. Paul gives her this look of profound revelation at the end of that scene --- he seems to realize how great Peggy really is.

Oh yes, that one. He finally realized it's not those things he petulantly listed in the earlier scene. He realized that Peggy is really good at this.
