There’s a theme this season of housewives wearing wallpaper prints while in their homes, and Betty falls trap to this in her first scene. She wears a dark purple dress with a golden print–very royal seeming–while phoning Don to talk about Sally. Despite the massive secret between them, Don and Betty seem to be getting along well, although I guess they’re used to keeping massive secrets from each other.
To take Sally to Miss Porter’s, Betty transforms into “mom” mode with a tweed pink suit. The pink is a reflection of her sweet and sugary mood to Sally and to the school’s headmaster, whom she is actively trying to win over. Upon picking Sally up, Betty wears a similar silhouette, but in an icier blue color. Betty’s icy blue serves as a compliment to Sally’s navy in the car ride home, during this drive they become more bonded than they have been in a while, smoking cigarettes and being so over Don together.
Betty is also looking to have gained some weight since we last saw her in her denim shorts, but this might just be a costume department illusion to make her seem more matronly.
