Mad Men: Tea Leaves

And just like that we are at episode 3. 

Season 5, Episode 3: Tea Leaves
As Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce tries to build upon its current business, Peggy is given new responsibility. Don and Harry indulge a client. 

So what did you think?

You know how everyone's always speculating about the opening credits being some kind of foreshadow of Don committing suicide? I was thinkig, OMG it's Roger. I don't really believe that, but that's the thought I had in the moment.
I caught it and didn't really focus on it until later when several of the critics started speculating that Roger was the one that was going to jump out the window. The more I think about it the more I think everyone might be on to something... He's got an unhappy marriage. And his work-life is a shambles. Before he always had one thing going for him. Now, not so much.

Makes me wonder if we are going to see a Roger crisis moment.

I managed to stay totally unspoiled until I watched this ep last night! So I hadn't seen any reviews and didn't know they were saying that. But it was so clear, I'm not surprised the critics were talking about it.

It would be interesting to see happy-go-lucky Roger in crisis as opposed to Don. And it almost makes more sense. Like, Don has already navigated the dark places. If Roger lost everything, he wouldn't have a plan.
