Ladies Lounge - Sally Draper - Netflix
Sally Beth Draper (Kiernan Shipka) is Don and Betty Draper's oldest child. The series' third episode, “The Marriage of Figaro,” depicts a party for her 6th birthday in late March or early April 1960. She becomes a more central character in the third and fourth seasons (according to the time line of the series, she would turn nine years old in season 3 and 11 in season 4); as of the fourth season, she has been promoted to a starring role. The death of her grandfather, Gene Hofstadt, affected Sally significantly and deepened the rift between her and her mother. When her youngest brother is named after their dead grandfather and given his room, Sally becomes convinced that the baby is her grandfather's reincarnation and becomes terrified of him. Sally is adventurous, and she has been seen throughout the series making cocktails for her father, smoking one of her mother's cigarettes, asking Don's co-workers about sex, sneaking sips of their alcoholic beverages, being taught how to drive by her grandfather, and masturbating while at a friend's house. Her behavioral problems lead Betty to have her see a child psychiatrist in season 4. Sally appears to be closer to her father than her mother, and in one episode (“The Beautiful Girls”), she unexpectedly shows up at Don's office, because she wants to live with him instead of Betty and Henry Francis. Don sometimes affectionately calls Sally “Salamander.” She develops a friendship with slightly older neighbor boy Glen, who is about 12 or 13, in season 4. This infuriates Betty because, in prior years, Betty and Glen reached out and comforted each other when they were both feeling sad, lonely, and neglected. Betty forbids Sally to see Glen, and proves to be very volatile whenever Sally sees him. Sally continues to surreptitiously communicate with Glen, calling him frequently at his boarding school. As Sally progresses into young adulthood, she witnesses several disturbing events, such as in season 5 when she sees Marie Calvet, her stepmother Megan's mother, fellating Roger Sterling during a business dinner, and, most disturbingly, her own father having sex with his neighbor Sylvia in season 6. Don's outright denial of the reality of the encounter alienates him from Sally, and, resentful of her parents, Sally decides to attend boarding school. While at school, Sally becomes a troublemaker, smoking constantly, sneaking alcohol onto campus, and dueling with golf clubs with her friends. By the end of the sixth season, Don decides to be more honest with his children, starting with showing them the now dilapidated whorehouse where he grew up. The choice to be truthful makes an impact on Sally and she begins to forgive her father for his transgressions by the beginning of the seventh season. However, she still objects to Don's decisions in life, telling her father that she does not want to be anything like her parents. “You're a very beautiful girl,” Don responds. “It's up to you to be more than that.” When the series begins to draw to a close, Sally faces further complications of growing up. Glen decides to join the army and fight in Vietnam, causing a frustrated Sally to yell at Glen and express disdain over the possibility of his killing of innocent children and bystanders. Sally later expresses regret over her outburst and, through tears, tells Glen's mother that she is sorry and wants to say goodbye to Glen before he leaves for basic training. Later, Sally learns from Henry that her mother Betty is dying from lung cancer (something Betty had not wanted Sally to know at that stage of her illness). On a surprise visit to the Francis household, Betty gives Sally a letter that she tells Sally to read after her death. Shortly afterward, at her dorm room, Sally goes against orders and reads the letter anyway. In the letter, Betty gives Sally a picture of Betty to show the embalmers how to dress and style her for the viewing, and tells Sally that she loves her, and that while in the past she was worried because Sally always wanted to go her own way, now she admires her independent nature, resulting in Sally breaking down in tears. Later, upon learning Betty wants to send Bobby and Gene to stay with her uncle after her death, Sally decides to cancel her planned trip to Madrid and serve as a maternal figure to her brothers. It is also implied that she will press for Henry to raise the boys after Betty's death, since she tells Don they should not be uprooted. The final image of Sally is of her washing dishes while Betty smokes at the kitchen table.
