throughout the series don has done quite a few things for people who had no one else to help them, or stood up for what was right. the 2 most notable examples were being there when peggy was having a baby and joan having to boan the fat disgusting jaguar guy (that scene where you dont find that don was too late til the end was amazing. so well done imo).

despite his personal issues and flaws, he does have a firm barometer of right and wrong and a soft spot in his heart for helping out people who need it when he can. it is i think, his most redeeming quality.

 

Eh, I'd probably disagree with you here, but that's because I'm very pessimistic when it comes to Don.  I do agree that he has a barometer of right and wrong, but he really holds himself to his own standards.  It's textbook sociopathy.  None of the "selfless" things that Don does make him want to change for the better, long term.  He almost broke out in the season where he started to swim and get healthy.  I would actually argue that they exist as selfish reasons that Don uses to cope with how much he ruins people's lives. He had the chance to do something nice for Silvia and Dr. Rosen, but we all saw where that ended up.

 

I am a cynic.

The season where Don was swimming. His life was out of control, he's a control freak, he could control his swimming. It was the base he used to build himself back into being control of his life.

i wish my boss was not sitting right next to me, so i could reply more at length to this, but i dont quite view don that way. i hope to get back to this tonight.

How in the world could Bob Benson have thought it would work on stick-up-his-ass, married-with-children Pete?

 

The Sally/Don&Sylvia scene was even more cringeworthy than the burglar scene a few episodes ago. Betty doesn't even need to poison Don's marriage now, she can outright destroy it as soon as she wrings it out of Sally.

the bob benson scene was hilarious.

its not like don does not have leverage to ruin bettys marriage as well now.

The heart wants what it wants.

Considering the time and the fact that Campbell is a total prick, he was actually surprisingly cool about it.

agreed

and BIG TIME agreed. i was expecting him to go through the roof. its not like he hasnt gone all out crazy yelling before. he just casually moved his knee away and rejected bob. that was probably the best thing he has done in the whole series.

Wait, it's Betty not Don that would poison/destroy his marriage?

Stitchy, I'm still interested to hear your rebuttle on my remarks, if only for friendly banter.  I like arguing.  Makes me happy, even if I'm wrong.
