Pete Needs A Lesson or Two From Don in the Art of Philandering
But look at Pete. All guiltied up when Trudy comes home. Obviously, cheating is not in his nature and this makes me happy because there can only be one Don and Pete obviously isn't cut out for this role. This will eventually leave him miserable if he's stuck married to Trudy (though I love her), when he's pining for Peggy (who I'm sure is out fucking Duck). Boo for the lack of Peggy.
Hello scrawny boy
And for completely shallow reasons, another proof that Pete is no Don Draper, he's scrawny as ever. But that doesn't mean I wasn't gushing this entire episode about how adorable Pete is even when he's cheating on his wife. Look at him trying to impress the au pair and just being an all around cheater in nice-guy clothing. Totally adorable watching cartoons in the morning.
Joan: This never happened
Oh Joan. My heart goes out to her so much just because I don't know how much they make at Sterling Cooper, but I feel it was considerably more than what she's making now. And look at that sly look she's giving Pete. She'll keep his secret, if he keeps his. This really did never happen. I need to see how Joan goes on with her life outside Sterling Cooper but at the same time, I wish she'd come back already. Screw Jane, Sterling (oh wait he already is). Go take Joan instead!!!
Don and Betty Take a Roman Holiday
Betty: it's where you go from being a stranger to knowing someone.
And every kiss with him after that is a shadow of that kiss
I know this gif has nothing to do with this quote, but I thought she looked adorable being all dancy and clappy and Governor's boy being the reason or at least aiding in her happiness.
HELLO. You so know she ain't talking about Sally and Ernie! I totally will let Betty do whatever she wants, just cause she's the lesser evil in their marriage, but really, is she that into governor's boy?! I mean yeah, he helped her out and you know she knows he's into her, and she did let him kiss her, but wow, I didn't think he made that big an impact. I hope nothing serious happens though. I'd rather she have a physical affair than an emotional one with him.
And though you'd think that Don whisking her away to Italy or charming his way into her pants in Rome would make it to the Don Draper charms his way into my panties moment of the week, it's actually a Stateside, mundane moment in their lives that makes me like him even more. The simple way he massages her shoulders and listens to her gripe about her Junior League woes (even for just a second) really did get to me. Deep inside, though he's cheated on her left and right, he really does care for Betty. And as long as that caring dude is somewhere in there, there is hope for Don Draper.
