...and when he goes back inside, Anna speculates that Patty thinks Don brought the pot. "If it wasn't for my niece, we'd have killed each other by now." Don't know what to say to that, other than ouch. Don defends her, saying she means well and she's family. "Not everybody has that." Yeah, on top of everything else, Don's wondering who would take care of him were he in Anna's position. I'd ask why he even got out of bed today, except for the part where he never actually went to sleep. He says he has to tell her something, but we hear some noise from a plane in the distance, and I'm not sure if this reminds him of the last time her worldview got shattered or what, but he can't go through with it, instead merely saying that he has to go. He strokes her hair and apologizes, but she smiles big and says it's okay - she wants him to do everything he wants to do. I'm not sure she means that, as right now he looks like he wants to stab himself with a large knife to end the pain of this conversation, but instead he half-chokes that he'll bring the kids out at Easter, and on yet another level, not only is Don losing his closest friend and confidante, but he's actively participating in deceiving the person who always most encouraged him to tell the truth. He gives her a smile that looks like a death mask and then goes to finish up the painting, and I can understand why, as it's certainly been by far the most pleasant part of his day.
