So excited. We're we starting to see cracks in the marriage last season? I hope we see more of Betty this time.

IdaBlankenship the shots of Peggy in Don's office was brilliant. I reckon for Peggy a great career and a good life (taking a lover when suits) will be enough for Peggy this is the ideal life. I hope the writers don't stitch her up by marrying her next season.

I really need to stop reading this thread as I'm going to watch eps 12 & 13 this pm!

I knew it was only a matter of time before you all saw the light and joined me in some Pete love wink.

Yes I'm not quite sure how I started to have sympathy for Pete!!!

The other thing I've noticed is Don Draper is turning into Robert DeNiro! How did that happen?

One last question, what is 'Duck' up to? Is he going to fuck Pete over?

IdaBlankenship Thu 27-Jun-13 09:48:57

Duck is now a headhunter - him escorting the other guy in (don't remember him, but there is clearly some history with Don there?), was showing Don that SCDP (SCCC? SCP?) are recruiting and that his position is not secure.

Pete has always been great, Vincent Kartheizer has always managed to make him sympathetic even when he is being a total shit.

I reckon Peggy is set for world domination! I disagree re: Ted's motives though. I think Ted is trying to see himself as noble and starcrossed etc, but in reality he is just a cheater who got scared of the prospect of losing his family. Otherwise he would never have slept with Peggy and promised her that he would leave his wife, he would have just requested the move to LA and gone before they were involved.

Poor Peggy. He sleeps with her and then leaves.sad

How much has she changed since Season 1 though. Loved her trouser suit at the end.

Oh and I hate Bob Benson. He is too smooth.

Oh blimey, I've just watched the last two episodes and am now feeling a little drained. Is it wrong that I just want to give Pete a cuddle?

Sorrel - how was New York?
Pete really has hit rock bottom - he's lost his wife, his parents, his child, his apartment and the Chevy account. I can't imagine he'll fit in well in California, he is too uptight and prissy.

NY was fantastic. What an amazing city. We did all the tourist things and our hotel was on w57th st, just off Madison so we walked up and down that avenue rather a lot. I squealed when I saw a huge poster of Don Draper on the side of a bus!

Poor Pete. He'll be back (I hope)!

What a brilliant episode. He will be back with a vengeance I reckon next season.

Seemed to me that Don let Ted go to California instead of him for Peggy's sake - I think Don could see what a disaster it could be for her professionally and personally if they became embroiled in a full-blown affair. Of course, it also allows him to make the break from Megan - arguably forwarding her career by having made her give up that terrible soap and maybe meet someone else too...

Not that his initial attempt to go in the first place wasn't shamelessly swiped from Stan - loved the comment about the sandwich on his desk! But that's what I like about MM, the characters are realistic because they're not one-dimensionally 'good' or 'bad'.
