While it's not a bad episode, this is probably one of the episodes I enjoyed re-watching the least. It's got some great moments (Ken dancing!), but as a whole it just feels like a slog to me.

With that out of the way, was Don saying that the reason he was interested in Sylvia because she reminded him the prostitute that nursed him back to health?

I think all of Don's side women have been a variation on that prostitute (who, of course, represents the birth mother her never knew).

This is a great episode for Stan fans and Steggy stans. "You're like my brother" was supposed to poison that notion for us, I think.

Also, I once had the opportunity to drop "the timbre of [my] voice is as important as the content" into conversation, just to see if there were any other MM fans in the meeting. (There weren't.)

The stuff with Grandma Ida still gives me chills. This is one of the few instances where I don't blame Betty for freaking the fuck out over Don's parenting, although it comes off as shrill, as usual.

Yeah, I was with her until she went to, "Do you know Henry's running for office?"
