I was a little surprised when Don proposed to Megan, but after thinking about it, I think they make sense as a couple. She is the opposite of Betty in many ways, yet just as beautiful. She's so much warmer, and way more laid back with the kids, which is something they crave. The scene a few episodes back where Sally runs into Megan's arms sobbing really showed how much she craves affection, touch, and comfort. Megan seems a natural to provide that. I do feel awful for Dr. Faye. She was not expecting news that Don was engaged to another woman. How heartbreaking.
My favorite scene was when Joan and Peggy have a little "vent" session in Joan's office:
They do make a striking couple:
I am a huge Betty fan. I know she's a miserable B, but I think her character is what makes this show excellent television. When she directs her anger at Don, she is justified in my opinion, because for most of this season he was a wreck and not the best parent. If you're too wasted to know what day it is and miss a visitation day with your kids, you're not really a successful parent. Though on the trip to California, a sober Don was an ideal Dad.
I hope Betty can find some happiness. It seems her husband is tiring of her erratic behavior. her dynamic is the same in this marriage as with Don: he's an adult and she behaves like a teenager. All Images
