The Most Valuable Lesson I Learned From Last Night’s “Mad Men”
Blow job, ladies. Blow. Jobs.
In last night’s episode of “Mad Men,” Megan Draper’s saucy French-speaking minx of a mother was back in town, and she had some advice for Megan, whose distance from husband Don was all but obvious. “He may think you belong more to other people than he does to you,” Marie says, having just seen her daughter sign autographs for two teen girls. Her advice for Megan, if she wants to keep her husband interested in her, is to stop dressing like his wife. “The only thought he should have at this dinner is how quickly he can get between your legs,” she says in a bit of TMI sex advice. Megan giggles but complies, and sure enough, after a hilariously uncomfy business dinner with clients, to which Megan wore a chocha-showing dress, Don is rarin’ to go.
I don’t think Marie is wrong that Don has become distant from Megan as her own star has risen — but I certainly don’t think that that is her fault or that it’s her responsibility alone to keep their marriage hot and spicy. But I won’t deny that Marie’s advice worked, at least for the time being. A little while later in the episode, when Don returns home late, Megan gives what I think is the first blow job in the show’s history. Correct me if I’m wrong though.
Anyway, check out two clips above and some GIFs of the episode’s other great moments (spoilers ahead!) after the jump!
Like I said, Marie is in town, drinking. She is tagging along with Don and Megan to a client dinner with Herb Rennett from Jaguar (the guy Joan had to bang) and his wife. Marie spends the dinner talking about how stupid the wife is in French.
Later on, his father-in-law drops the firm’s business, which leads vengeful Pete to tell Trudy where he saw her dad and what he was doing. She ends their marriage.
And not only that, but the two firms are merging all of their business. Don and Peggy, together again at all!
