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.)

think that even the characters understood that the prostitution connection, while there, was inadvertent.
Most definitely.

As was everything - thus the (presumed) resignation letter.
See I never saw that as a resignation letter. I saw that as I'm going to go back to my desk and get back to work and try and pretend this whole thing never happened.

She's smart enough to know that despite Don's bad habits and recent behavior, she's got a good job. You don't just throw away good jobs if you are single.

This does seem more a likely scenario, Gatz.

Certainly true.

That had actually run through my mind - I was thinking...hope she's got somewhere else to go!


I guess it just seemed so pointed, deliberate, and connected, but you're probably right.


You'd think, with her years of experience, she'd have grokked to the corporate culture - that 'this never happened' is a way of life (like it's second nature to Joan), but I guess she's more idealistic than that. Still.

I'm still not convinced that she wanted/s him. But she did recently watch another secretary go from a desk to a ring on her finger after an affair.

Jane ended up with Roger... stranger things have happened.

I saw it as a resignation letter at first, but then when the episode ended without any confirmation of that, I went back to seeing it as just "regular work." And then we see her in the teaser, so I knew I was wrong.

I wonder if that was deliberate mislead...maybe that's what would happen now, maybe not so much in 1964?

My DVR didn't tape the teaser so I went off my impressions. I'm glad she's still there. This could get interesting.
