    Ugh. I'll stick it out because it's so close to the end... but these last two episodes are not doing anything to make me look forward to the rest of them.

    Exactly. While she had acted before being a secretary, she moved up quickly with Don's connections. And this was despite his not being fond of the acting, the hours away and other changes from before they got married. So at the worst, I'd call Don's affect on her career a push.

    I think she showed up pissed off because of two things: Her mom poisoning her over the breakup and Harry being a pig. Don, not being privy to the details of either encounter tried to "do the right thing" and give her the big check. Primed for a fight Megan took that as being bought off, not in the spirit he intended.

    Don may have been a seriously crappy husband, but he didn't ruin her career. Short of whipping himself out in Times Square there isn't much he could do to atone for his part of the marriage, so cash is all he had to offer.

    Same boat. It's a damn chore seeing this to its conclusion. I may just let them build up and watch them all if the flu ever comes back.
