I cannot wait to see what tonight’s episode holds for us. Susan F. says: May 10, 2015 at 2:57 pm I love this photo! When I was a teenager my mother discovered I had picked up the smoking habit. Her response was much like Betty! She said, “If you are going to smoke…make them Salems, in case I run out”!!! I miss my mother. sr says: May 10, 2015 at 3:01 pm That’s what the money, er I mean, the mother’s day card is for!

This summer I am going to re-watch the entire series and notice all the hints given over the seasons. It’ll be awesome. kate says: May 11, 2015 at 10:04 am Happy Mother’s Day D is there a final Mad Men party? I might fly out claudia says: May 13, 2015 at 10:58 am i think the pic is great…truly one of those “mad men” images that stick with the audience for so many reasons! as an aside, i always am bothered by the unnatural way that betty holds her cigarette, etc., bc it always so clear that she is not a “real” smoker…the way that sally holds her cigarette is in direct contrast and looks more believable…actually, sally holds her cigarette like don does…fingers relaxed, etc… in light of the outcome of betty’s smoking / cancer,a i felt a little guilty saying this, but then i realized that it’s not betty who i am citing; it’s january jones!! lol MJ says: May 14, 2015 at 12:26 pm I missed this post on Sunday and just saw it for the first time. Although I can see why Deborah chose it for Mother’s Day (it sums up so much about Betty and Sally), I also believe that her choice of this photo reflects the way all of us saw Betty’s smoking all along but never allowed ourselves to envision the consequences. It’s astonishing how much the meaning of the picture changes from what it is before The Milk and Honey Route to what it is after. The picture also represents the complex relationship between Betty and Sally and what they mean to one another, which we get more insight to in Milk and Honey.
