Don and Faye begin with a bang (referring to the lamp they broke, mind you.) Roger and Joan succumb in a weak moment. Peggy wakes up and smells the equal rights coffee. Sally runs away from home. I think we all saw those things coming. What I didn't foretell was poor, old (and formerly freaky) Mrs. Blankenship's not-so-timely demise....but not until getting off the line, "We're in a business of sadists and masochists" with her signature deadpan delivery.
Here's to the most humorous episode yet, providing a refreshing dose of levity (especially after watching the darker-than-dark premiere of "Boardwalk Empire.") Though as the parting shot above suggests, it wasn't all laughs. (Isn't there a little Joan, Peggy and Faye in all of us?)
Best line of the night: "I'd have my secretary do it, but she's dead."
And take a lesson, all you fellas out there: A house call by two Swedish masseuses/nail technicians? Best. Present. Ever.
