Storyline

Emotional issues are infiltrating life at the office. An incident with Sally causes Don some problems, both because of the issue itself and how it affects his professional and now budding personal relationship with Faye. Sally and Don's life in combination with this issue is not made any easier with Betty's take on it. Although hiding it, Joan is feeling vulnerable with news that Greg is being sent to Vietnam following his stint in basic training. Roger wants to be a support to Joan, and admits that his support is partly for his own lustful wants for Joan although he doesn't expect anything to happen with her. But an additional stressful situation which Roger and Joan face together may change what happens or doesn't happen between them. And Peggy is being wooed by Joyce's friend, the socially conscious Abe Drexler. Abe's attempts to get into Peggy's good graces go slightly awry, and may even get her fired if a gift he gives her, which was supposed to flatter her, is made public. But ... Written by Huggo

Three women in the elevator...
20 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Beautiful Girls is another strong episode in the fourth season. It is very entertaining, and it shows how much Peggy values herself and her work. It also shows some kindle interest between Joan and Roger, what seemed like it took years (well it actually did).

The episode also continues Sally Draper's rebellion and it shows how much hatred she has for either Henry, her mother, or both. There is also an unexpected turn in the middle of the episode that had me shocked, and it was brilliantly played as a moment of comedy in a scene. This season seems to be like it will end as the best, but also because of the comedy that is done amazingly well.

The last shot of the episode is amazing, and of course it is symbolism for Weiner's ideas. Overall, amazing episode, as to be expected.
