It seems really odd that Toby couldn't go to school just because he got married. Especially since Nikki is gone for 6 months, a year at college is 8 months. That leaves a 2 month difference during freshman year. John mentioned that Toby should "stock his own fridge" does that mean Toby has rent to pay? If so, why is he always hanging out at the Kennish house? I know plenty of married couples who both go to college. I get that there's supposed to be a lesson here about not getting married too young but there's a lot of plot holes in this story.
I think the reason these men think that Virginnia is "magical" is because she actually enjoys sex. Most women were taught back then that sex was a necessary evil to please your husband and get babies. Basically "lie there and take it". Not a lot of fun for the guy either. Look at what happened to with Libby and Bill? Libby did not look like she was enjoying herself and I'm sure Bill picked up on it.. It's the sexual revolution which doctors, like Masters, started that really busted that myth.

More on Megan, the mis-carriage was also well done. Her character seemed a little too perfect last season but giving her goals and dreams, which she's determined to stick to, has really given her some depth.
Stan shouldn't have told Peggy anything, but going for Ketchup was all on Pete. Pete seems to have lost his edge when it comes to business. His stunt with Jaguar has stuck them with a client who thinks he can ask for the moon. Don was right, they didn't need to win it like that. Now he's double crossing a client, badly, because he found out. Stan working on Ketchp in a closet? Really? Think people wouldn't notice? Come on! I remember when they stole a company out from the people they sold it to. But they can't manage one secret pitch?
My question about Don is this, why is he suddenly feeling bad?
He never felt bad about cheating on Betty. I think he was more truthful in the last ep, when he was explaining very clearly to Sylvia exactly what they were doing. The look in his eyes over that tense dinner was more Don-like than we've seen him in a while.
Don thinks of his life as 3 separate parts, work, home, and play. He's never mixed the 3, until Megan was at work with him and now with Sylvia living in his building. I think when those worlds collide, despite his best efforts, is when the drama happens. Like when Betty finds out that Bobbi Barrett has been sleeping with her husband. Megan needs to find out about Sylvia, it's so close to home. It's the only way to save this slow moving season in my mind.
Sidenote, Jessica Pare has won me over on a difficult character this season. Megan had very little substance last season but the scene after Don storms her set was wonderful. She sold me and I'm now hoping for sweet revenge for her.
I agree that Joan should have talked to Harry before firing Scarlett but she should have been fired, she DID steal from the company. She clocked in for wages she did not earn. That's stealing. The office management has always fallen to Joan, hence her surprise when someone interferes. She doesn't realize that she's in different territory now. She's basically taken Lane's job, she's a female partner and men will get jealous. Harry has the hots for Scarlett, which was part of his reaction but he's been fuming for a while now. I understand his response, he is under valued but acting like a child and storming into a meeting is NO way to earn respect.
All I'll say about Pete's marriage is; GO TRUDY. It's about time. She kicked ass.
Also, can we PLEASE get updated on Joan! I feel like they keep bringing her in and teasing us, only to cut to Don being a miserable prick. We get it. More Joan please. I'm not asking for anything more than a couple of scenes to check in.
I have to say, this season seems a little aimless. Like there's no real stakes. We all know that Don is a cheater, we've seen this played out. Where's the story of this season? Don and Pete eat up all the screen time while being miserable assholes?
I have to say, I'm over Emo Don. He's treating Megan pretty badly. I get that he's sick of her, but what the hell brought this on? It can't just be her career, she's literally just as sweet to him as she was before, even though she's quite ignorant of his darker nature. Don has never been the greatest husband but he even treated Betty better. When Betty got pregnant, he stood by her, placing his hand on hers as a symbol they'd do it together. Megan tells him that she lost a baby, pretty scary for a 26 year old woman, and he doesn't even change expression. In previous seasons, you could root for Don, because even though he screwed up a lot, he had a heart. This new Don is cold.
I like that there's attack on men in this
review, when in fact, Sylvia is just as much
to blame as Don. She could have said no at
any point. But, as many have before her, she
put in the order. So to speak. She should
meet Rachel Menken and Faye Miller, those
are two opinionated women that both
got screwed over by Don. Side note, did
anyone else find it heartless that Sylvia
listened to Megan's heartbreak, only to
make the concious choice to screw her
husband the next evening? In that case,
both men and women are pigs.
Noah's storyline is cool. And I can understand why he didn't want to tell anyone about his ailment, after Bay found out she started neurotically worrying about him. That would get annoying really fast. He's obviously going to fall for Daphne while Bay falls for him. Which is great because Daphne and Bay always have great love triangles. Those two actresses do a wonderful job with drama.
Just as I was starting to like Melody. Her speech to Daphne was badass. I get she's hurt that her friend can't sign but to say that she's doing it on purpose was WAY over the line. Melody's hate of hearing people is becoming over the top. Isn't acceptance amongst hearing and deaf people the goal of any teacher or parent? Guess not.
Angelo lied to Bay directly, after she defended him. He also lied about being a fugitive. Adrianna doesn't like him because her daughter used to get drunk with him, an old bias. Angelo also failed to tell Regina that he impregnated another woman, while trying to re-new a relationship with her. I think the point the writers are trying to get across is that Angelo isn't honest. He's the guy that looks like he's going to deliver all of these amazing things and fails to do so. We get that he's trying but he just doesn't seem to be able to be truthful. Ignore Kathryn and John, they're always judgmental. Remember what they used to say about Regina?
I think Bay has every reason to hesitate about getting back together with Emmett. They just started being friends again. I thought it was very mature of her not to jump into a relationship she wasn't ready for. I understand Emmett's hurt but Bay's got a lot going on.
