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.)

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?'.
Good point, Gatzy. That was my other thought, that it was a little bit about Betty protecting herself.

I was actually surprised by Betty's happy reaction to the Beatles tickets...that's how low my expectations of her behavior have gone. I was expecting a much more peevish, "But I have plans for her...blahblahblahwhinycakes." It was nice to see her actually smile and be happy for her daughter, for once, wasn't it? :)
Right, Amy. She was a grown-up about Don's arrival at Gene's birthday party, really handled it well. But the bar has been set rather close to the ground.
