I’m surprised by how much focus Megan is getting the year. It actually feels like she’s the show’s main protagonist at some points. Interestingly enough, I’m not complaining. She’s a fascinating enough character and she’s added a lot to the show this year.
Her decision to leave the agency was an interesting one and I was most intrigued by Peggy’s reaction. You could just tell she couldn’t believe why anyone would want to give up something she’s worked so hard for. Moreover, Don and Megan’s bit was hilariously charming but of course him doing it with Peggy was a disaster that I just couldn’t look away from. It awesomely culminated with Peggy screaming at Don to shut up (and I love how he doesn’t fight back at her anymore).
I also loved Don’s elevator shaft moment. It was a chilling touch that gave off an extremely foreboding vibe for the rest of the season. Here’s hoping the writers keep things ominous (because I can never get enough of that).
Finally, I even found myself enjoying Pete’s affair with the housewife. It was pretty gutsy of him and I was immensely amused by his sneaky tactics.
All in all, another strong hour of a wonderful season.
