Wow, after a season of banal storytelling, the payoffs were well worth it. Very well acted, january jones was ice cold as betty, vindictive, certain and doing her best to try and put herself in her husbands emotional shoes. She was possibly more detached than Don during her promiscious moment of truth.
Peter and Dons actions and words were perfect for the political backdrop. One of the unique strenghts of this show is its ability to serve as a time capsule and a drama, intertwining the mood of the times with the behaviour of its characters. The Cuban Missle crisis symbolized and was also a catalyst to both don and peters desperate and paranoid revelations. Just brilliant, count me in for season 3.
