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.

But she does see herself as a victim, IMO

Yeah, I think we actually agree. I do think she feels like a victim; when I said she was "meeting him halfway" I meant that she was making an effort not to act like a victim. She sort of rose to the occasion and saw things from a reasonable and generous perspective. She wasn't going with her lesser nature, saying "You abused me!" she was saying "We both made a mistake." I saw that as Allison taking a step from where she was (feeling sorry for herself) toward Don's position.

And yes, I totally agree with you about the 60s mentality. I think a couple eps ago I said she might be trying to get around that, in her fictional head, by inventing feelings between them where there really were none. So, confronted with Don being all businesslike, she can't pretend anymore and that must be pretty unbearable.
