Spoilers likely, but not from me.
Mad Men won the Emmy for Best Dramatic Series lat night, which pleases me so much I am cancelling* three of the seventeen acts of bloodcurdling evil I had planned for this today. As I only began watching the show this season, I have a couple of questions I’m hoping one of you guys can answer.
I saw a snippet of a scene from a first season episode in which Betty Draper comes to visit him at the office. From the context it’s clealy the weekend, and she is clearly in the midst of some sort of emotional upset. She talks to a young boy sitting in a car outside the office, who says that he is not permitted to talk to her. Presumably this was the child of one of Don’s coworkers. What’s the background on this scene?
In last night’s rerun, Peggy Olson’s harridan of a sister goes to confession and tells her priest she hates Peggy because the latter never has to pay for her sins. (Yes, I get that the sister is just trying to ruin Peggy’s nascent friendship with the priest.) Among other things, the harridan aves Peggy had a child out of wedlock by a married man. It’s been my impression that Peggy’s child was sired by Pete Campbell before his marriage. Am I wrong there? Also, does the sister believe that Peggy was knocked up by Don?
*Well, not so much cancelling as postponing until Tuesday. As for the rest–sorry, but my minion have orders to continue giving Ann Coulter hourly wet willies until we get some Christina Hendricks nakedity.
