But given proof of her stronger emotional involvement, capable of trumping her professional ethics, she wouldn't exhibit just a bit of jealousy or territoriality when sensing that he has strayed... so early in their romance, when if anything there would be a heightened sense of intimacy and possessiveness? She wouldn't be bothered or worse that he has already cheated on her, when here she thought (though it may be one-sided) that they really had something serious and genuine going on?
To quote a comment from another online blog about the show, making similar remarks:
"For a moment, it looked as if Don might get busted by his unsuspecting new flame Dr. Faye (Cara Buono), who was waiting for him in the hallway of his Waverly address when he returned to his man-cave, now known in my mind as the Mike Hammer Suite. In truth, Dr. Faye wasn't waiting for him, but was leaving a note, but once they embraced I thought she might literally pick up the scent, or perhaps a trace of Megan's red-Corvette lipstick on his collar, but suspicion never flickered across her eyes, just as Roger Sterling's wife, Jane (Peyton List), appears to have detected nothing of Roger's emotional turmoil at work or on the infidelity front, his post-mugging adrenaline-charged stand-up boff with Joan resulting in an aborted pregnancy that doesn't seem to weigh on his conscience nearly so much as his need to be babied by Joan."
Hey, look, this is TV. I just am tremendously entertained by the super-accurate 60's look and attention to 60's detail for everything (sure, they occasionally take some liberties with reality for the sake of the dramatic), from the men's and women's clothes to hairstyles and jewelry, those small men's hats worn pointing down, the "mod" look creeping in, etc. I mean even the bathing suit and the short short-sleeve button-up shirt on Peg's boyfriend after the post-beach romp in her apartment, plus the tight body-hugging pullover shirts on art-director Stan.
