Lucky Betty – now she gets to bone Don without wanting anything from him. Their wet hot American summer fling was one of the season's big shockers, but also Betty's most humane moment ever, especially when she empathized with Megan: "That poor girl. She doesn't know that loving you is the worst way to get to you." This was the fantasy honeymoon getaway their trip to Rome never was – right down to the way Betty gave Don six kinds of cold shoulder the next morning, huddled over her breakfast with the ever-dashing Henry, whose sanity seems to have rubbed off. At this point, Betty threatens to become the most mature and rational character on Mad Men, which just goes to show how bananas everybody's gone lately.
