For these gals, 1968's been a year packed with tumultuous surprises

Talk about a moment of clarity – Trudy suddenly realizes, "WTF, I'm married to Pete Campbell? What am I, a moron?" And while it's unclear why this took eight years, it was still intense to see her throw him out. Finally, the Lady Macbeth of Cos Cob gets sick of being the apple in the pig's mouth. Allison Brie carried that amazing silent scene where she returned home, after dropping the Faux-Taylor Swift Idiot Neighbor Girl at the hotel, and you could just sense the change in her walk to the bathroom in the dark. Not even Trudy Can't Fail could keep closing her eyes to this disaster. But look on the bright side, Pete: at least your mom is learning "the physical satisfactions of love."
