Oh, Don. Oh, Peggy.
From the moment I realized the episode would revolve around Peggy and Don, I hoped and prayed the two wouldn't hook up. They did, of course, but not in the manner I feared. This was much so better than getting physical. And it left the door ("Open or closed?") wide open to a whole new dynamic between them. Thank God, it's a short week ahead.
What a welcome home present: The writing, the acting (Jon Hamm, especially), Don's squeeze of Peggy's hand at the end (I literally, audibly swooned), the juicy tidbit on old Blankenship...and the beat goes on for Roger in the one-liner department: “You know what gets you over something like that? Drinking."
