And just like that we are at episode 3.

So what did you think?

I felt so bad for Betty in this episode, which is such a new feeling for me ... :-)

I continue to feel bad for Henry. He has the patience of a saint and appears to be the perfect husband.
I know, right? When the cancer scare had passed, and Betty concluded it's just that she's fat, he really seemed to mean it when he said he didn't see it. He looked her in the eye and told her, essentially, it didn't matter to him. He wants to have sex with her because he loves her and wants to be intimate with her.

When Betty made the remark about "it's because your mother's obese" I said aloud "Ah, Betty's back." Henry's mother is a piece of work, though.

His reaction to Don's phone call inquiring about her health was not surprising.
Not at all. Imagine how that made him feel. We're sympathetic to Betty because she was freaking out and Henry wasn't home, but ... she called Don, not Henry. We also know what transpired in the phone call between Betty and Don.
