Plus, think about it...if you found some confusing photos and a set of your husband's dogtags and those of another man (whom she might know as the guy who was serving with Don and who died just before Don came home) you wouldn't leap to "Oh, he must be a TOTALLY DIFFERENT PERSON." The divorce stuff is easy to understand. And, not for nothin, it has "Don Draper" on it. So it doesn't even support the identity fraud evidence.

Yes, this is exactly my point--WE have all the pieces, SHE doesn't. And without the framework of what we already know, it would indeed be hard to make sense of all that's there, especially once she gets to the divorce papers.

I admire it as a piece of storytelling, and am intrigued by how it will all play out.

I got the sense during that final shot that she is thinking, thinking, thinking----partly about what to do, when and how to confront him, etc. But mostly I feel like I could practically hear her thinking "Who IS this guy? (that I happen to be married to and have three children with...)"

(Oh and btw,I was watching ep 1-2 of Life to day and suddenly realized that Olivia is CH! I didn't start watching MM until this summer so didn't make connection though of course CH did look familiar when I did start watching MM....)

Hee, that's funny. I knew her from Firefly, so it was very exciting when she got MM and Life at the same time!

Speaking of casting, I just discovered that I watched an entire episode of Grey's, featuring a new doc called April, without realizing she's played by the same actress that plays Kitty, Saul's wife!

And, Pete's wife is in Community.

Better casting through Mad Men!

I like her Community character (and her MM character). She had a great moment in the episode when she was prodding Chevy Chase's character to come up with a song.

Don't forget Anne Dudek (Francine) was in House.

Better casting through Mad Men!

Absolutely! :-)
