    S02.E07: I Want To Know

    I don't know if that is particularly realistic. You have a kid screaming in the backseat, you have sirens behind you that command you to pay attention to them and move over, etc. You get distracted. Obviously, someone should do their best to pay attention to the road while driving, but I don't know that you can just shut a distraction off and drive in all instances.

    I kind of viewed it as Celeste letting the kids tell their grandmother "good bye," with the idea that they likely wouldn't be seeing her for a long time.

    I presume Mary Louise came to help, but she became more suspicious as she heard the rumors about the Monterrey 5, and learned more about Celeste and Perry's relationship. As to Celeste, some of her behavior was really erratic, and I can see how a third party would be extremely concerned by the Ambien induced blackouts and car accident. That's some scary stuff. That isn't to say that Mary Louise only had the best of intentions, just that I can see how she might have come there for a benign purpose, but the more she saw and heard, the more alarmed she became.

    Depends on whether the DA is politically ambitious, dreaming of a big trial with national or international media coverage. The police are going to want to speak to them regardless of whether at some later point the DA might charge them with a crime.

    I'm confused. They weren't in court when Celeste brought up the rape. They were only there for the decision. Celeste did not discuss the rape at that time, if I remember right. My impression was that Renata accidentally hit Gordon with the bat during her rampage. I didn't get the impression we were supposed to think she was intentionally trying to beat him.

    The others are in legal jeopardy with Bonnie. Once Bonnie confesses the original story they all told was a lie, the police are going to want to speak to all of them.

    Don't the boys already know? I recall them going after the kid who was taunting Ziggy over the situation.

    I'm sure there have been women who have done that, just like I'm sure there are women who would not do that. In this case, I think Bonnie was emotionally spent and just felt like saying what she felt needed to be said.

    I feel like Gordon is written as too clueless to live. I mean, I get that he's supposed to be an asshole, but come on. If it were me, I'd be walking on eggshells around Renata if I had put her into bankruptcy and publicly humiliated her a second time when my mistress/nanny tries to get compensated for our affair. Instead, he seems to double down on his cluelessness in ways that don't seem humanly possible. Even with the courtroom melodrama, I think they wanted to try to keep her somewhat human to show that people are rarely all good or all evil. And I do think she got a fitting end. She's leaving Monterrey, likely realizing that her grandkids are going to be mostly lost to her and that she brought this on herself. I didn't love Jane's ending. I feel like she's only known Corey a few months, and it's more that the plotline requires her to have closure and love him, after everything that happened with Perry, rather than it feeling natural.

    Mad Men

    Is that what people who worked on the show have actually said? I mean, those pictures look fairly generic in terms of portraying California glamour, and are more late 60s/early 70s, than early 60s.

    S02.E06: The Bad Mother

    I think a court would look at her age. I presume that was what some of the psych interviews would have covered. They would have spoken to Mary Louise about her age, her level of activity and likely discussed how she planned to handle raising twins should she be granted custody.

    Mad Men

    True, but if someone claims to be a European viscount during an initial meeting, it's not like someone is going to immediately run off to the library to go see if they can verify the story. That was really my point. The information exists, but it's not like it would be easily accessible so you could try to verify their story on the fly.

    Mad Men

    I had figured it was a fake title made up to make the person seem more impressive. I mean, it was 1962, so it's not like they were going to Google his claim. Maybe it was just me, but I didn't take anything they were saying at face value.

    He does ask them, and you are right that he does get an awkward silence in response.

    Mad Men

    Honestly, I thought they were essentially sophisticated grifters. They seemed to live "borrowed" lives in other people's homes, on other people's dimes. I could easily be wrong, but that was my impression of them. I mean, doesn't the guy essentially pimp his daughter out to Don in order to gain Don's favor?
