People hate Megan? I think she's a great character, and I love her being with Don. She adds a new dimension to Hamm's character. I hate and will always hate Betty, but that's because January Jones is the worst actress who ever walked the face of the Earth.

@Mia yeah she is fat but that had nothing to do with the situation. It was just mean. Just like leaving Ginsberg's work in the cab. I know he is a jerk but I always imagined him being at least supportive to his co-workers. That was such a Pete move there. This season he only supported Megan, he either ignores everybody else, yells at them or pulls a jealous scene like this one. I thought after all this years in the business he didn't have to use such crapy ways to feel successful.
Don't get me wrong, I don't like Megan more then Betty (look at my name!!) I just think she has a smart way to deal with Don. He is the one who changed for worse. I'll rather have him be a single playboy than a jealous whiny little boy addicted to everybody's attention.

january jones was PREGNANT during the filming people - that is why betty was written as "fat" this season.

@ Betty Draper, it seems Megan is ALWAYS calming Don into subjection, its becoming formulaic, this is a drama, not a sitcom. Megan is more his therapist(the rapist), than wife, and she's raping the raw emotion right out of the putz, I mean, his real name is Dick for a reason. Also, when Don said "Betty should keep her fat nose out of it", was pure perfection, she's fat, why tip-toe around it, has nothing to do with respect.

There isn't a reason to focus on Joan at this point, what are they going to show, Joan feuding w/ her mother and changing baby diapers, that would be a huge yawn fest, almost as much as continuing Roger and Jane's story line. We already know how she's coping because it was her decision to get a divorce, not the other way around. I rather wait until Joan's gets a lover or her loser ex comes back from the war either dead or maimed, begging for her to take him back.

Speaking of Roger, how funny was it when Cooper looked at his watch when Roger told him he was divorcing Jane, ha.

I'm kind of annoyed they've focused so much on Megan this season. Like, i get it, but I feel like some of the other characters are getting shoved aside. I mean, January Jones was pregnant, and Lane was shooting fringe, but what about joan?? Christina Hendricks has barely been in the last couple of episodes! I want to know more about how she's coping etc

I think Betty has already lost a little weight, her face seemed much skinnier then in ep2. I'm positive she will be back in shape in s6.
I also liked her late night conversation with Henry, even though he's boring he really loves her and she is supportive with his career.
But I have to admit Megan was the bigger person in this fight, even though I like Betty more. She explained Don's and Ann's marriage really well to Sally and she calmed Don down. Betty had no objective reason and right to get in their business but Don was very hurtful when he said she shouldn't get her fat nose in everything. She still is the mother of his children and he should have some respect even in these kind of situations.

I absolutely loved Betty, she brings spice into this undulating season. I have faith she will lose her weight, please writers do so within the next three episodes, can't take much more of that awful fat suit.

Megan is not good for Don, his behavior at SCDP proves this, given the fact his competitive spirit reared its head once she was gone. And when Megan told him not to call Betty, it wasn't maturity talking, it was fear of letting Betty "win". Her exchange with Sally and how easily she was played exposed the depth of Megan's insecure tendencies, that actually stifles/suffocates Don instead of benefiting him. When Don told Ginsberg that he doesn't think about him, I was like "yes, you go Don". If Megan were in the elevator with him or knew he purposely left Ginse's pitch in the cab, she would've lectured him to death, thank goodness she left SCDP.

*or she will die. Cause let's face it, she's too perfect for this show, and in Mad Men there is no black or white. Every character is a shade of grey.
And I really love Sally, she's so smart. How she told Megan to make herself cry was so funny and she put her mother in her place by not telling her about the fight, cause she knew that's what Betty wanted to hear.

I don't know who bothered me more this episode with their jealousy: Betty or Don?
Betty handled the strange moment with Megan pretty good, I was happy when she resisted the whipped cream and spited it out. That was a huge step for her, to not solve her problems with food.
However, I was very disappointed when she couldn't get over the note, when she got to know how much Megan means to Don she just got in her old bitchy ways. To tell Sally about Anna at this point was over the top, she was just acting like a child.
Don however was so narcissistic and an ass with the whole Snow Ball pitch that I really wanted to punch him in the face. So know when he didn't have his wife to entertain him at work he starts to actually do something? And then he has to be better then anybody else, cause he still wants to be the star even though he works less then Roger these days.

Megan seems to handle everything so perfectly that I start to think that either she has a big dirty secret or she will die soon, cause let's face it, she's too perfect for this kind of show where nothing is black or white.
