Don and Betty Draper are one sexy couple

Mad Men: SouvenirFor all of their problems and dalliances, Mad Men's Don and Betty Draper are one sexy couple. Sunday's episode, "Souvenir," was another stellar offering, and one of my favorite scenes was when Don and Betty pretended to be strangers in Rome, then went back to their room and made sweet love.

It made me swoon, not just because they're two really handsome people (her beehive-type hairdo was something else), but also because I felt like I was part of the whole deception involving the Italian guys at the cafe. Very fun.

And this, after Betty accepted a kiss from Henry Francis after the courtroom scene. She's such a cold fish with these things, and I have to wonder if she's just doing it to get back at Don for his affairs. She doesn't seem to enjoy the attention of other men. She doesn't seem to enjoy much of anything. Bob likened it to Revolutionary Road, and I quite agree. And it's no wonder Sally has repressed anger issues. She comes by it honestly.

The scene was great. Betty certianly wants to be seen as more then just a housewife and mother. I have a feeling fighting for the city water awoke a political side to her that will continue. Perhaps by next season she may even be inspired to get herself a job. She seems to have a "If Don can do it why can't I" attitude about a lot of things, and yet she does these things even against Don's approval probobly to just get his attention away from work (and other women).
