Dressed for bed, Sally tentatively wishes Gene good night, but he barks at her to get in there. She does her death march again (the actress is killing me this episode) but he merely has her sit and read to him again, this time about a prince whose "rustic manner" made him a misfit with the "delicacy" of his subjects. I wonder if he pissed in the back of their chariots.
Back at the party, Don, having retrieved Betty's coat and purse, observes Roger lovingly holding Jane up on the dance floor, they being the only two still out there. He then takes a long walk across the grounds to where Betty is standing, facing away from him. He puts his arms around her, and they exchange a long kiss that gets more and more passionate...until we cut to black.
