episode 4: the rejected

Last week Joan survived being stitched up her husband and Don and Lane hit the town. This week we get an episode with Pete.

Epsidoe 4: The Rejected

An edict from Roger and Lane puts Pete in a personal dilemma.

One can only imagine what is going to happen this week with Pete.

I liked that they treated the Peggy/Pete baby thing in a subtle and complex way. That was well done. And it was so much fun to see Peggy with the...beatnicks? Hipsters? What year is it anyway? That scene at the "event" was hilarious and fun. I realize I miss the young people! I miss Midge and her friends talking about Sticking It To The Man! I miss Smitty and the other one! I'm happy we have Joey, though, in case I haven't mentioned that. ;-D

Though I really hated Peggy for being so self-centered with Allison. I think it gets to part of the reason I've never really liked Peggy. I sympathize with her and I want her to succeed, but she has this streak that I don't like.

I feel like...she has a very strong tendency to self-preservation. That's seeing it in a positive light, I guess, (especially if you're the child she gave away and has no contact with). She was really sweet and generous with Allison, until Allison got the wrong idea (that Don had taken advantage of both of them). Then she had NO room for Allison, it was all about defending herself against that implication. And she didn't just shut it down, she was harsh with Allison and unsympathetic ("She's fine.") when she got back to the room. I get why this is a sensitive subject for her, but I'd like to see her rise to the occasion and correct Allison in a nicer way.
