For the Heineken beer account, Don and Duck think that targeting upper class suburban housewives is the approach to take. True to their thoughts, Betty even ends up buying Heineken for a small company dinner party.

Shows what can happen to an affecting action...
8 September 2010 | by Red_IdentitySee all my reviews

Betty Draper is torn apart in this episode, and she finally lets her emotions out on Don in one of the finest episodes of the series.

The episode masterfully executes the emotional and over-bearing aspect that Don and Betty have in their home, that tension that was always hidden inside Betty comes out. She might have just realized it, but it was a long time coming. Both Jon Hamm and January Jones are brilliant in their scenes together, and if anyone has seen the film Revolutionary Road or the novel it is based upon one can only imagine what a problem like this will turn out.

On the other side of the episode we have Peggy dealing with her shame and guilt with a priest, and Moss is playing Peggy so well that she might upstage Hamm in the future of the show. Ultimately, this is a very strong episode and one that is sure to become the beginning of a downward spiral for Don, Betty, and Peggy.
