    Betty visits her ailing father. (who apparently doesn't like Don)

    Paul's girlfriend Sheila tries to convince him to prioritize his civic duties.

    Pete's mother disapproves of an idea that Pete and Trudy are considering. (Are they considering adoption?)

    Granted, Kinsey went south only after he got kicked of the California trip, but I was surprised he did go with Sheila. Again I was surprised that Betty didn't let Don come home AND that Don didn't push it. It was curious that he was so subdued w/ Betty's father. I haven't seen interaction between Don and Betty's dad before.

    It was an okay episode and I found myself flipping channels.

    I think Betty has kept Don away too long, which is why he chose to take the trip to California.

    Did anyone else notice how the sun lit up Don's face through the airplane window??

    This is the dawning ...

    AS the credits rolled, the music playing made it obvious that Weiner has something BIG

    in store for our Don Draper on the West coast.

    BTW Did anyone else notice that Betty's father is John McCain???

    I thought I was the only one that noticed he was John McCain! I really liked the conversation between Pete and Peggy near the end. "No one has it easy". Peggy really is wise beyond her years.

    Yes, she frequently says the perfect thing.
