episode 8: the summer man

Last week's episode was easily in the top 5 of all Mad Men episodes. Words cannot express just how much I enjoyed that episode.

So the big question is how will Weiner follow up last week's epic episode? 

(And how long until Weiner finds a way to fire the person who accidentally posted the clips to episode 8 on the AMC website instead of episode 7.)

Episode 8: The Summer Man

Joan and Peggy deal with high-jinx in the office.

MARY! I'm glad you made it. :)

Best line of the episode: "I feel like I'm Margaret Mead."
That was a fantastic line, wasn't it? It happened so early in the episode that I forgot about it until you repeated it, apparently. EM's delivery was perfect, too.

By the way, did Joey suddenly and drastically become a lazy, sexist asshole? Like, for the purposes of this episode?
He gave Joan some backtalk in the previous episode, IIRC. But it escalated considerably in this one, to be sure. He had not been that guy from the start, the way Freddie Rumsen was The Drunk or Paul Kinsey was The Pretentious One, where that aspect of their personality was established early.

And I thought it was interesting that, though Henry said the problem was Betty's reaction to Don, Betty then let it go. Henry was the one holding onto it
That was interesting, wasn't it? We'd expect Betty to cling to the jealousy, wouldn't we? I would have, anyway.

It appears as though Henry thought about the implications of Betty's response, and got pissed about it. They passed the jealousy baton.
