9:30pm: It's been a long week here in Boston. What's even the right word for a week of tragic events, all spread out over three cities? If Don Draper were around, he would have figured out the right label for the week's events, and then created a great commercial to promote The One Fund Boston, the unified charitiable fund to help the victims of the Boston Marathon tragedy. Please fulfill Don's wishes and donate today. Visit The One Fund Boston's website at http://onefundboston.org, and then tell your friends to do the same.
Now, back to Mad Men. Don was lost at the end of Episode 3. He can't get anyone to buy into his ad campaign ideas. His wife is withdrawing emotionally from him after her miscarriage. Even his mistress can't be bought, either by money or by his vaguely threatening pick-up lines. Don is losing control, and he might take SCDP down with him.
Meanwhile, in the B storylines, there's a real threat that Betty Hofstadt Draper Francis could return to our TV screens tonight. Let's hope AMC cares about us enough to keep Betty away for another day. Or season. Or series.
Let's end this week on a high note. The Mad Men live blog is next!
