In The Better Half we learned Sally was conceived during a vacation with Betty’s family at Lake Champlain.
We also know Gene was conceived at Betty’s childhood home during a visit to her father (“… conceived in a moment of desperation and born into a mess.”).
Makes you wonder how Bobby came to be …
… And whether there’s any connection to these events. Presumably Sally’s conception was during a brighter period in their relationship. Although, recall that in Out of Town Betty and Don recount Sally’s birth to Sally and it’s subtly revealed that Don was most likely out philandering (“was working late”) when Betty went into labor.
We know Don’s issues and infidelity have deep, deep roots … I’ve always wanted to know more about their marriage prior to 1960.
