  • Betty was to be in a Coca Cola ad and later denied when Draper refused to switch agencies. It was a major turning point for her, it could be argued that she began spiralling down afterwards. I remember seeing her quite happy and excited at the opportunity. I think this is a huge oversight in most Betty analysis
