Last night’s episode of Mad Men: would you hit it?!
Sally is the best.
LOVED this episode! Everything’s coming up Peggy!!!
I loved this episode so much, but oh man… Sally.
Also I just stole this from Uproxx:
Also of all the guys in the office, Bob has the hots for Pete???
see comment below. I think there’s more to it. He might not be gay.
I was pulling for a Benson/Ginsburg affair, personally.
He’s my new BF.
PS I don’t think he’s gay. Or he might not be. I think he just wants to fuck his way to the top. I can see mistaking Pete for a homosexual at this point in his life.
I disagree, I definitely think he’s gay. I think the show overplayed the, “what is he hiding?” thing a little too much, but I also think that this season, for some reason, people have decided they’re watching some Lost type shit and have gone bananas about “signs.” The real wackadoo stuff (false identities, lawnmower accidents, STABBINGS) is never really built. The things we’re hinted to are always more mundane stuff like affairs and closeted gayness.
Bob is too into his career to hit on his boss for any reason other than actually wanting him and misreading Pete, something that would be easy to do when you’re sending out love feelers and Pete’s mom just called him unlovable. I got the impression that he absolutely was not romantic with Joan when they were going to the beach and between his genuine looking smile while talking about love and the fake one when he left Wolk threw in a little terror/sadness face when he was facing away from Pete.
And Stonewall is a big New York event next year, it would make sense they’d start introducing us to a closeted gay guy now if they;re not bringing Sal back.
What you’re saying is making sense. And you’re right about the signs. Maybe I’m reading too much into it. I also maybe haven’t forgiven them for getting rid of Sal. I did get the idea that he was not romantic with Joan and she went on a date after they met…so…i can see him wanting to be with her as his best lady friend. You may have convinced me Messica!
This season has been boring me, and the hashish thing was just over done – all that from hash? Come on.
AGREED. And I really think they overplayed the secretiveness of Bob Benson along with the hash dreams and the death imagery and everything else a little bit.
Is that why Bob gave baby Kevin a football? Either way, I thought it was an odd gift.
I don’t know, but I do love that of all the gifts purchased for baby Kevin by men in Joan’s life, not a single one has been age appropriate.
I think it was just supposed to be the kid of generic gift you give when the only thing you know about the kid is its gender.
Although it IS the 60s. There weren’t a gazillion toys for kids under 5 like today.
I liked how Megan is dead.
Sally’s weird friend was Megan’s spirit guide into the light, that’s why she poured her more wine at dinner.
Being dead has its perks.
I loved Sally’s little asshole friend. What. A. Dick. But really funny. Funniest wine pour ever?
Yes she poured wine better than me.
I would hit it, as long as it’s not his juice, it’s my juice. So a big thing has to happen to someone other than Don in the next two weeks because this show always does that. I think Harry/Harry’s wife/Scarlett is going to be a violent something like some lover’s murder business. Stupid Harry has been in or mentioned in every episode and Ken Cosgrove has to spend three weeks in Detroit getting almost killed all the time. Unacceptable unless Harry gets at least punched in the face.
I think probably Sylvia is going to decide to follow the Grateful Dead around the country instead of going to a leadership conference, and Pete is going to get sucked into a hell dimension.
I can’t wait for Joan to leave Nathan Fillion naked in the desert.
All of these are just the best scenarios in any show, but especially in Mad Men. I was thinking about all of them last night.
And also how I want to give poor Sally a supportive, appropriate, not creepy hug. Oh man, Sally. There is no hope for Sally. No hope at all.
I think the new account exec doesn’t give a shit whose juice wins. As long as there’s juice.
I’m jealous of Peggy’s cat.
Did anyone else get a weird vibe when Sylvia’s son saw Don? I feel like he knew what was what.
Stolen from Uproxx but useful.
That scene was like a bizzaro depressing Seinfeld episode.
Sally just walks in on everybody
ooooh i loved this episode! the scene between pete and his mom was heartbreaking! i have always loved pete, even though he’s selfish and rude. he just seems like he wants so badly for someone to appreciate him and it only ever happens for all the wrong reasons. i was rewatching season one with a friend and the way he and peggy are in those episodes is so refreshing. i feel like they could end up together again. like pete said, they do really know each other and now they are both single. although i don’t think it could happen while they’re working for sc&p. i think it would have to be if they were both in different professions because i don’t know if pete’s ego could handle the competition.
i have a feeling sally and don may never talk about what she saw and that it will be one of those things that each character just tries to ignore which would be even more depressing than it becoming a big family scandal.
anyway, i was loving every minute. bob benson, another very lonely and unappreciated man, had some genuine heartbreak coming out of his eyes.
I just can’t believe that Glenn never got to second base with Sally. What’s the point of having a gross, weird boyfriend when you’re a teenager if you can’t get that kind of shit out of the way with him?
I’m also very intrigued by the doorman. He takes his job so seriously, which is great, but, uhh, is he crazy? (Is Bobby crazy? Pete’s mom can’t be the only crazy one in this show, come on!) I’m concerned he’s going to end up sacrificing his life for all these rich snotfaces during some siege of the building or something.
