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.)

Betty even covered for Don. Betty. I think, im that moment in the foyer, she realized that it would be terrible for her children to have Don exposed, and thus decided to answer the agents' questions ... skillfully.

But, just IMO, I don't think she even considered exposing him. Both because that would require whole nother level of hatred (which I don't think she has) and because it's just in her nature to be discreet.
I agree with both of you but I have to admit, like Amy was a bit surprised just because this is Betty and I tend to expect the worst from her.

I think the kids played a big part in her covering up. Especially because she's seen Don be a such a good parent (coming to the birthday party) and taking Sally to the Beatles lately.

But my other thought was one that got mentioned in that article that Amy linked to. I wonder if it was also about protecting herself. Would you want to admit that the man you had been with for over 10 years wasn't who you thought he was? Doesn't that reflect a little poorly on her? Wouldn't people naturally wonder, 'how did she not know?'.

Though, I completely disagree with the article with regard to Henry. Very poor phrasing used there. She wasn't playing dirty at all.
