I'd love to know when that last episode was written and whether or not the whole 50 Shades explosion into popular culture influenced the writing.
But in this week's episode, Don Draper totally became a way hotter and cooler version of Christian Grey. And I have to admit that I kind of loved it. I wasn't sure how far the Linda Cardellini character was going to let him push it, and I kept thinking how Betty would have had NONE of that, and Megan, while she's way more sexually adventurous than Betty, wouldn't have either. Megan would rather be on the other side of that dynamic, I think....
So, it was interesting to see Don bring the kind of control he loves to exert over people at work into the bedroom. Especially at a time when he needs to feel extra-powerful at work.
Oh, I do love me some Mad Men.
Others who've seen it... Was it 50 Shades for you? Love? Hate?
