Mad Men: Pete's Sweet and Betty is Dirty
Crazy episode last night. I love the way they're softening up Pete. First he's an integrationist, but only cause it makes money in the ad world, and that's the only thing that should matter. And Now, he feels bad about kissing his wife after raping the neighbors babysitter. Oh and he also feels bad that he's annoyed his neighbor by making his babysitter cry. The neighbor's a real peach too, his advise to Pete is to keep it out of the building.??? Hard to believe that this was once the way the world worked.
Then there was Betty, she seemed a little less than please with the Governors advisor kissing her, but she also seemed like she felt she owed it too him. I guess the lesson from these to plot lines is if you find yourself in the 60's don't let a man do you a favor. Because he will definitely expect some sex back in return, and apparently you come across.
The whole thing with Betty and Don in Rome was great. You got a real sense of who Betty was before she got married, and sidelined to the slow lane. I wanna see some flash backs of Betty in the old days. The whole scene with her fending off the lotharios and telling Don they called him ugly...Priceless.
Anyway that's my recap...Ohhh and Sally kissing that boy in the tub...
