episode 10: hands and knees

It's Sunday so that means it's tome for another episode of Mad Men.

Episode 10: Hands and Knees
An unannounced visitor at the Francis home rattles Betty.

(I'm hoping this episode is better than I anticipate. Expectations are low since Betty annoys me.)

When, at the clinic, Joan said her daughter was 15? Whoa. Was she saying that to make the mom feel better? Was she seizing an opportunity to not be identified as a woman about to have an abortion? Or -- and this is a longshot -- is 15 how old her child would be if she hadn't had her first abortion? (I know that, in a previous episode she was talking to her ob-gyn, and the time period of her first two abortions came up. That's the foundation of my latter speculation.)

Joan carries an awful lot, doesn't she? There she is, back at the office, saying "I feel good." Maybe she does, actually. She doesn't seem to be one burdened by regret, one to let regret interfere with the order of her world.

More from me after you guys get here.

This is my guess. Or close to it - she could just be echoing the other mother (with 15) for a way to not get deeper into the conversation. (Does that make sense? Like, if she'd given a different age, it almost invites more conversation, but by agreeing to a point of similarity, you get a head nod and silence?)
