It was interesting to see Don, who's always been contemptuous of both talking about your feelings and therapy, open up to Dr. ... Whatshername, as they drink sake. Maybe it will even occur to Don that talking with someone about it, whatever it is, can be helpful.

Yeah, I liked that. I loved his line, "Why do people want to talk about things?" because it's a great Don line. Then he proceeds to talk about things. :) And Faye was wise when she said Sally just needs to know Don loves her.

It was nice to hear Betty identify her dad's death as the start of Sally's issues. At the time, Betty didn't make many apparent allowances for Sally's feelings about her grandpa; Betty was certainly pretty messed up about herself, but that's no excuse. So it's good that she at least recognizes that was a blow to Sally.
