The Other Woman (2009)
And Yet, Her Eyes
Sasha came back from Kandahar in pieces, a sack of broken glass in the shape of a woman. She knew her edges stuck out at hard, invisible angles, waiting for an unwary hand to snag and recoil, so she kept her eyes closed through the flight to Chicago, immersed in civilian travel-murmur but not part of it; when the flight attendant offered to help her with her bags after landing, she said no thank you. She read his nod as relieved, the quick turn from her on his heel more so—thought about making a remark, I don’t bite and it isn’t contagious,
For an episode that begins with Don taking a sick day, much of the action in "The Quality of Mercy" takes place in the offices of Sc&P. Even as Don attempts at first to hide from his problems and then to bury himself in work, he can't help but face reminders of what he's done.
The episode's most dramatic sequences rely on the audience's knowledge of not just what happens throughout the hour, but what has transpired over the course of the series -- from Pete finding out Don's secret to Peggy quitting Scdp to Sally catching Don. These characters and this show are rich in history,
Tonight’s episode though, “The Better Half,” doesn’t seem like it’s of a piece with winter years Mad Men.

Bryan Fuller's crime drama finally delves into the fascinating psychology of Hannibal Lecter. Here's Laura's review...
This review contains spoilers.
As Hannibal teeters on the edge of cancellation, we finally get to the good stuff: the psyche of the serial killer.
This week’s episode is a bit of something different, both for the show and for Hannibal stories in general. So often, we see what the deadly psychiatrist does, while a careful curtain - a human veil- keeps us from looking into his own emotional and mental makeup. That obstacle began to fade as we followed Hannibal himself through something remarkably like a-day-in-the-life-of.
This week’s case was, as usual, weak in and of itself: a doctor-wannabe performing organ harvesting. While the forensics team seems compelled to believe his work is that of the Ripper (or that he is, at least,
Okay, let me dial it back a bit, because that’s a loaded statement, and God forbid Matthew Weiner hear the words “bad,” and “Mad Men” within spitting distance of each other if the word “breaking” isn’t also in the mix.
When something bad happens to Joan, the audience almost universally wants to help her out. That's one reason last season's sensational episode "The Other Woman" -- in which Joan sleeps with a Jaguar executive in exchange for a partnership -- was such a gut-wrenching viewing experience.
As Season 6 opens, Joan may or may not be enjoying the perks of that partnership (we can't say, because -- you know -- no spoilers). During a roundtable discussion at a recent Los Angeles press day for the show, Hendricks teased a bit about what's ahead for Joan (including "groovy" new costumes), whether or not there's any romantic future for her and Don, and why she wishes she could be on "Mad Men" forever.
At a videoconference debrief with The Washington Brass, Debra "The Brass Cupcake" Parker (Annie Parisse) reports that they have thus far uncovered 47 false identities for Joe's prison visitors. In other words, it is officially easier to get into a maximum security prison to visit a notorious serial killer than it is to get a library card. (You don't have to bring a utility bill with you to the prison!)

But Catherine Giudici needn't worry. The other woman is Peta Murgatroyd, his pro partner on Dancing with the Stars.
Much as he did with Giudici, Lowe had to keep his relationship with Murgatroyd quiet until The Bachelor finale aired on March 11, as ABC producers didn't want to take the spotlight away from the dating show.
"We had to be very secretive. We had to dance in locations away from all the other dancers so that paparazzi couldn't take pictures," Lowe, 29, told People at Monday's premiere.
