I also enjoyed the scenes with Roger (John Slattery), who genuinely believes his LSD trip last week has been of great personal benefit. He's even talking to his ex-wife Mona about his "life-altering" experience, getting on with her better than ever, and during the climactic American Cancer Society dinner made a move on a woman who's more age-appropriate than young Jane. Unfortunately, the object of Roger's attention was Megan's mother Marie, who's so enamoured with the silver fox she give him a blowjob in a backroom. A sexual act witnessed, accidentally, by curious Sally (Kiernan Shipka), who spent this episode trying to behave like an adult in the big city: dressing like a grownup, installed as Roger's "date" at the table. Sally was having a delightful time, despite the evening's mounting disappointments (no staircase, bad food), but that all crumbled to dust when she saw Roger receiving oral sex. It's hard to tell what kind of effect that will have on Sally, but clearly it's the kind of thing that opens a youngster's mind in unpredictable ways. Should it be a worry that she's also still in contact with erstwhile creepy neighbour Glen (Marten Holden Weiner), too? When she reported back to Glen afterwards, describing the city as "dirty", it felt like Sally's again having her innocence squeezed dry.
- Ken's father Ed was played by Ray Wise, which marks this season's second connection to Twin Peaks after the earlier appearance from Mädchen Amick. Is one of the writers a fan?
- I guess the lack of Betty this season has been down to January Jones' real-life pregnancy, and perhaps other commitments. Not that I miss Betty, but it does seem odd she isn't an important part of the show these days.
- Kudos for the camera shot of Emile, Marie, Megan, Don and Sally all sat around their dinner table; each looking miserable about personal matters. Emile's lost his daughter to a lifestyle she hasn't earned, Marie's cheated on her husband (the first time?), Don knows that some clients will never trust him again, and Sally's slowly learning that adulthood has more downsides and disappointments than she ever imagined.
