Speaking of Betty and the times, I think the show does a great job of showing the roots of Betty's various issues. The stories of her father coming home from work and spanking the kids, the story of her mother nailing the nudist magazine to her brother's door. It's all shame and violence and control; Betty's perpetrating that on her kids, just to a lesser degree.
That's all certainly true, Mary.

It was interesting to see Don, who's always been contemptuous of both talking about your feelings and therapy, open up to Dr. ... (I don't remember her name, but I do know that that's Cara Buono and that she was a brunette in The Sopranos) ... Whatshername, as they drink sake. Maybe it will even occur to Don that talking with someone about it, whatever it is, can be helpful.
