Sally Draper continued to rebel as mom Betty Draper caught her with bad boy Glen and reacted in her usual heavy-handed way—threatening to move the family out of the neighborhood. Kiernan Shipka is a remarkable young actress who's really come into her own this season—but I think this storyline would have played better earlier in the season. We're up to the penultimate episode of series 4 and Sterling Draper Cooper Pryce is self-destructing. I couldn't help but feel the dramas of a 10-year-old girl felt small fry by comparison.
