Storyline

It's Valentine's Day 1962, approximately 15 months since we last saw these cast of characters. On personal fronts, Don and Betty seem to have settled into an agreement of sorts that Don will try to be a better husband and father. Although Don makes a romantic gesture for Valentine's - dinner and a hotel stay at the Savoy Hotel - both Betty and Don realize there are still unspoken problems in their marriage. Joan and Roger have cooled off their romance, with Joan now actively dating. Pete and Trudy have worked out their early problems to now have what seems to be a supportive marriage, although the one stress in their lives is that they have not yet conceived a baby. And after an undisclosed leave of absence, Peggy has returned to her copy writers job at Sterling Cooper. There is much speculation among the men at the office as to Peggy's obvious weight loss, some speculating - correctly - that she had a baby, but wrong in that it is Don's (what else could explain Peggy's meteoric rise ...

Trivia

The shot of Betty and Don in the hotel bed was flipped post-production. Betty's wedding ring is on her right hand. The aired scene shows them on opposite sides of the bed to contrast their normal sleeping arrangements at home. See more »

Goofs

Peggy Olson attends a Catholic Church, and her mother asks her to light a candle for her father, a Catholic tradition. The surname Olson is Norwegian, and Norwegians are overwhelmingly Protestant (Lutheran). However, we do not know Peggy's mother's background. She could be Catholic and her father may have converted as is de rigeur when marrying into a Catholic family. See more »

Quotes

Don Draper: [reading from 'Meditations in an Emergency' by Frank O'Hara] "Now I am quietly waiting for the catastrophe of my personality to seem beautiful again, and interesting and modern. The country is gray and brown and white and trees. Snows and skies of laughter are always diminishing. Less funny, not just darker. Not just gray. It may be the coldest day of the year. What does he think of that? I mean, what do I? And if I do, perhaps I am myself again."

Season Two Premiere Episode
27 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

The show picks up two years after the end of Season One and things seem to be going the same, but with a little different. New technology enters the picture as well as the stalling marriage of Don and Betty.

Don Draper is still the man on top of the ad agency but there are still men trying to take him out. Plus, the whole baby storyline from last season between Peggy and Pete has yet to be discussed.

The first episode of season two is a slow-burner, answering hardly any of the burning questions from Season One. However, I am sure the writers know how to hook the viewer in before the knockout punch.

Great episode to start the second season.
