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?

Megan seems good, until she starts blithely wandering into surrogate mom territory and Don cuts her off. At which point she says, "This affects me too, you know."
Well ... it does. I think the comment was meant to be about Don not keeping things from her. Yes, that is the mother of his children, but she's his wife. I don't find her out of line there.

And then, at the end, "She (Betty) just needs to have something to call you about." WOW.
Yeah, that was bitchy. No redeeming qualities to that one. :)

Where he crossed the line for me was not telling Betty Don had called. That's a lie -- Sorry, Henry. That interferes with Betty's relationship with the father of her kids.
Absolutely right, Mary. Henry should have more respect for that aspect of the Don-Betty relationship.

I suspect it's a reflection of stepparent attitudes in 1966, that the new marriage trumped parentage from the old. Henry and Megan don't respect the Don-Betty relationship because people didn't do that generally.
