When Mad Men returned after the 17-month long hiatus, Betty had put on a few pounds. Well, more than a few.
January Jones was eight months pregnant during the filming of the fifth season, and so Betty became Fat Betty Francis, inspiring a Twitter meme and now, a music video, courtesy South Music & Sound Design. Check it out below:

When did Mad Men become a horror movie?
Set against the backdrop of panic caused by Richard Speck's 1966 massacre of eight nursing students in Chicago, Sunday's episode, "Mystery Date," was filled with chills (a strangulation, things that go bump in the night at the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce offices, grandma Pauline's butcher knife) and at least one thrill (Joan finally shipping her husband off to Vietnam for good).

Let's start with the thrill first...
The Killing returned Sunday night, taking the two more steps toward finally finding out who killed Rosie Larsen. (That's official, too: The murderer will be revealed in the Season 2 finale.) So what have we learned since last year's open-ended, infuriating-to-some season-ender?
When we last left off, Councilman Richmond (Billy Campbell) had been revealed as Orpheus, a frequent Beau Soleil client, and a man without an alibi. Before he could be formally arrested, Belko (Brendan Sexton III), friend of the Larsens and unstable would-be Larsen, shot the councilman. Meanwhile, Detective Linden (Mireille Enos) who was almost en route to her fiancé learned that the most damning evidence against Richmond, a photo filed by Detective Holder (Joel Kinnaman), was a fake.

Moments later, when Season 2 picks up, a royally ticked off Linden has exited the plane with Holder in her crosshairs. Here's what we learned in the course of our own investigation of The Killing's two-hour premiere:

Don Draper is... happy?
Mad Men's long-delayed and much-anticipated fifth season premiere finds Don (Jon Hamm) and Megan (Jessica Pare) still in the honeymoon phase of their recent marriage. Don's apparent happiness has one drawback, however: He seems less concerned with work than ever before.
"Don is seemingly becoming a little bit disengaged at work," Hamm tells TVGuide.com. "What happens when you have it all? What happens when you're satisfied? Maybe you lose some of that fire."
Mad Men Season 5: It's every man for himself
But life with Megan isn't all hearts and flowers. Look no further than Don's humiliation when Megan throws him a surprise 40th birthday party, during which she does a sexy song-and-dance better suited for the bedroom than for cocktail hour. So how does the ballad of Don and Megan go? What's up with Roger and Joan's baby (hello, little Kevin!) and why was Lane so obsessed with a photo of another man's wife? We took our burning questions to Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner, who also tells us why Pete (Vincent Kartheiser) and Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) are the ones to watch...
