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.

Peggy: "Did you know Malcolm X was shot last Sunday?"
Joey: "Yes, Peggy."
Ha ha, the delivery on that line.

The rest of it was even better. :)

Peggy: "Do you know who that is?"
Joey: "Do you read the stuff between the ads, Peggy?"

Such a great shot there near the end: Peggy's cool new, young friends, all giggly to look admiringly at a beauty like Megan*. Then Peggy's going off with the kids and Pete is with the old guys in the grey flannel suits.

I thought, "Oh yeah, here's the guy for Peggy."
He's the guy you two were casting for her a couple episodes ago. :-) A much better fit for her personality, and for who she is as an outlier career woman.

Loved her comment about the film in re: her Catholicism: "I'm not supposed to (like it)."

I think she was a bit mean after Allison got the wrong idea about her relationship with Don, I could see where she's coming. It probably caught Peggy off guard. I could see where Peggy might be thinking that if Allison thinks that, what does everyone else think?
Yeah, I liked Peggy a lot better in that moment before she turned on Allison. But that's her immaturity, her limited poker face. Joan would've been able to dismiss Allison's presumption without getting upset. I agree that Peggy did, as Gatzy suggests, probably think "Oh God, everybody thinks that!"

*Weiner must have really liked Jack and Bobby. Besides Matt Long as Joey, Megan is Jessica Pare, who played John Slattery's daughter on J&B. Although during the episode I was thinking that that was Liv Tyler. Which, in retrospect, doesn't make much sense from a casting standpoint. :)
