That week went way too fast. Here we are another Sunday night and a new episode of Mad Men.

Episode 2: Christmas Comes But Once a Year
A last minute visitor threatens to spoil the agency's Christmas party.

Something tells me this is going to be an interesting Christmas party. (How retro... we're actually calling it a Christmas party.)

I would imagine it is difficult to find a man that would be okay with her work let alone find one that would be supportive. She needs someone strong enough in his masculinity and someone challenging. She keeps dating weak or flawed men. Men that she knows she can't have a future with.
Excellent points, Gatzy. I hadn't even thought of that.

There's a definite conflict between Peggy's status at SDCP -- a woman in a man's world, but one who's earned their respect -- and her status as a single woman in 1964, even in 1964 New York. She's a trailblazer at work, but she feels compelled to tell her boyfriend that she's a virgin. The more I think about it, the post-coital look on her face is probably all about that.

And now I've got Luscious Jackson running through my head: It takes a strong man to stand by a strong woman. Finding a man who fits that description is going to be a challenge for Peggy.
