Yep. I don't know if the Betty parallels are going to be a big theme with this new girl, but I think they are at least subtlety hinting at it. Honestly, it didn't hit me until the back of the cab scene where her face looked strikingly like Betty.
Agreed that she was never meant to be a housewife. The Rome episode last year was her in her element - looking and living glamorous. The return back to suburban motherhood was crushing to her after that taste, and she quickly latched on to the first powerful man who gave her an opening.
