Peggy gets to know a new priest at her parish, who with the help of Peggy's sister Anita, tries to get Peggy to open up about the circumstances of her pregnancy. Roger is intrigued by the "wife" of a client, who turns out to be a call girl. Betty and Don quarrel over disciplining their son.

CONCEPT IN RELATION TO THE VIEWER: Religion in the early 1960s, and the role that it played in shaping the eastern seaboard.

PROS AND CONS:  I won’t comment on the specific plot lines that are present in this episode.  I have seen the entire series more than once, so this is like re-reading a favorite book.

This time around I watched the episode with audio commentary from the director and producer of the show.  The commentary was a total voice over of the episode so there was no dialog from the actors, just the thoughts of the creators.  

IT was sort of like listening to the gods on Mount Olympus move human playing pieces on a game board.

This film was viewed while exercising on my recumbent cycle.  A summary of my time spent working out on my journey through movie-land can be found on Strava.com.
