In Christmas Comes But Once a Year, it looked like the Don and Allison story was over. And we’ve all watched plenty of television, so we know that an ending is an ending.
But in The Good News, Allison seemed distinctly–hopeful. And we’ve all watched plenty of television, so we know that means that the story is in fact not over.
Except for how this is Mad Men.
I cannot tell you how deeply it moved me, watching Allison try to be perfect for Don, and I’m not talking about being a perfect secretary, looking perfect with a perfect outfit and a hair style they naturally show. I will be wonderful. I will not at all express any disappointment in his treatment of me. And eventually he will see how wonderful I am, and give me another chance. And I will be prettier than he ever realized.
Yeah. Been there. 4,000 times, I’ve been there.
