This week's episode of "Man Men" was a comeback for Don Draper not only because he brilliantly pitched the Philip Morris account. It was also because he showed that he will not be controlled. Explicitly he says that those in the office have problems with authority.
Finally, the complex Betty, who had been Draper's first wife, is waking about about how she is being controlled by second husband Harry. Sure, she still continues to do the Happy Housewife in Weschester Country, New York. But she is seeing herself as a person.
Unfortunately, that consciousness raising experience has not prevented Betty from trying to control her own daughter Sally. From the get-go Sally had been the female character on "Mad Men" who seemed to be capable of becoming whole. After the divorce, she acted out by cutting her hair and public masturbation. Her kindly therapist taught her self control. Although she has had her emotional setbacks since therapy, we viewers are still betting on her insight and strength to prevent her from becoming another Betty, Peggy, Joan, Megan or Trudy.
Now that the story line has shifted, we might also begin betting on redemption for Don. He does again have a shot out of self hate and the alcoholism which is a sign of it.
