Mad Men: Zou Bisou Bisou

Mad Men finally returned last night.  I planned to drink a Tom Collins and to catch up with our favorite ad agency, but I just drank wine instead.  Matt Weiner definitely started off the season with a bang.  We returned to Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Pryce a year after where we left them.  Joan has already had her baby.  Don Draper is married living in a posh apartment in New York City.  Megan seems really happy to be playing the role of wife and step mother.

The two hours were packed with Pete being a spoiled brat while Roger was trying to poach his clients, Pryce was day dreaming about an affair with a picture stolen from a wallet he found, Joan was falling into the role of new mother, and there were no signs of Betty.  Just a mention of Don calling her Elvira and Lurch when he dropped of his children.  This episode Don turned 40, and Megan surprised him with a surprise party.  Even Peggy knew this wasn't a good idea, but Megan went through with it.  This party caused the major conflict of the episode because Don wasn't appreciative of it, and this upset Megan.  She was so upset she left work early.  (I wish I could leave work any time I was upset.)

The true highlight was Megan performing Zou Bisou Bisou for Don at the surprise party.  He put on a good face, but we all knew Don would hate anything like that.  Can't wait for next episode, and for Joan's husband to finally die in Vietnam.
