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 ...

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.
