Can't Wait @smichal!!!! Don Draper is so frickin' gorgeous.
What do you think the major plot themes will be for the last 7 episodes? I kind of hated how they rushed to get rid of a lot of characters when it aired last year.
I thought Peggy with the Puerto Rican neighbor kid from last season foreshadowed that she's going to finally acknowledge her kid.
AMC keeps playing "The Sweetest Hangover" in the Mad Men promos.....
what I like about the show is that you can never guess what will happen next... and it has so much imagery, foreshadowing, etc. really well thought out and beautiful cinematography
Kid? Last I saw she had three before she had Campbell's..............
Betty tries for a career in state politics.
It's going to be so bittersweet..........I really took the old mans death pretty hard........I always thought when Campbell revealed to Mr. Cooper that Draper wasn't his real identity......The Old Man told him he didn't give a shit because of Draper's talent and money he had earned in client acquisitions.....
And then told Draper he could fire Pete if he wanted, But......"You never know where loyalty lies"
And sure as shit, Campbell has Drapers back.........
I read a review of the first two eps that suggests a major theme will be if some of the key characters will keep repeating the same patterns or if they will take less status/money and try for a fuller outside life.
I hope before the curtain drops Don finally finds something about himself to like or even love. That hope has kept me tuning in all these years. His destructive self-loathing has to have a breaking point and I don't think we've seen it yet.
Fuck yeah.....You don't remember? Her Mom and sis are raising them......She's a whore.......Remember the handjob she gave a stranger in a theater?
Back when she was a secretary....She'd go home to her moms and there were at least three kids there....And they were hers.....
And that was before she fucked Campbell.............
I remember that. Thought they were her sisters though.
those were her sister's kids-she was a virgin the night Pete came over
Nope....Those kids were hers.....That's why her mom had such a case of the ass towards her for not being there..........
those are her sister's kids, aren't they?
that's what I thought too
you're watching a whole 'nother show...
At the end of Season One, which takes place just before Thanksgiving 1960, Peggy is promoted to Junior Copywriter, heading up the new Clearasil account. Just after receiving the promotion, Peggy begins to have severe abdominal pain. Peggy attributes the abdominal pain to bad food from the office cart, and heads to St. Mary's Hospital in Brooklyn. She is shocked and in denial when informed she's actually in labor. As she gets up to leave, she collapses, and the hospital staff moves her into a hospital room in labor and delivery. She gives birth to a healthy baby boy.
Season Two begins 15 months later, on February 14, 1962, with a slim Peggy and no mention of the birth. Her long absence (not shown) is a mystery to Sterling Cooper's employees. One co-worker jokes during a meeting that "Draper knocked her up and she's dropped nine pounds, eight ounces." Pete has heard through office gossip that Peggy went to afat farm.
It is revealed later in the season through a series of flashbacks that Peggy's family has covered up Peggy's sudden disappearance from Sterling Cooper. They tell Don that Peggy is in quarantine with tuberculosis. Don becomes suspicious and seeks her out at the hospital, where he finds her in a terrible mental state and realizes her hospitalization is not due to tuberculosis. It is not clear if he's learned of her pregnancy. He encourages her to forget about the entire thing, advising she should "move forward", and would be surprised at how easy it would be to pretend "this" never happened.
During this time, Peggy's sister Anita, who has since given birth to her third child, is resentful of Peggy and tells their new young parish priest, Father Gill, that Peggy seduced a married man, got pregnant, and was forced to give up their baby. (Later, in "The Suitcase", Peggy reveals that because only Don visited her at the hospital, her family believed he was the father of her child). Throughout Season Two, Father Gill, who is progressive, repeatedly tries to persuade Peggy to take confession, which Peggy consistently declines. By the end of the season, she leaves the church.
And Joan took her to get birth control pills on the very first episode b/c she would be working around all those guys
I always thought that was so weird...
