Megan, who is so genuine and wants the best for herself and for Don, just can’t catch a break. She’s married to a monster, and as a result of Don’s extended plot line with Sylvia, we barely hear Megan talk at all during the episode. (And when we finally do, she’s drowned out by music to reflect Don’s waning attention.)
In the first shot of Megan, she is wearing a blue nightie sleeping by Don’s side; later she wears a blue embroidered shirt and white trousers to tell him she’s decided to take time off work to be with him more. By the time she says the word “vacation,” Don isn’t listening anymore. In the last scene, Megan, who is also very much like RFK in her optimism, is crying in a yellow slip.
