Guys, Don and Peggy?
I don't know.
Some thoughts: I love when Peggy she says she knows what she is supposed to want, but it never feels right, and it never feels as important as her job. This sentence could stand as my whole fucking life and the way I approach my work. There is also that alcoholic thing going on, and as the victim of a partner with substance abuse problems that was hard to watch, where Peggy was supposed to be mother everyone behaving badly. Don just told Peggy more about his life than almost anyone else when we know he is notoriously secret, and what was that hand holding at the end?
There is something I love about the way Don and Peggy interact, too. I mean, not his sexism, or the way he uses her to substitute for his own lack of life, but the way they meet each other, the way they are platonic, the way they talk to each other as equals. Even when they fight, there is a profound amount of respect each has for the other. Don uses Peggy, and its gross, and while I want Peggy to fight back I find she responds to people much as I do, getting trapped in that place where people are a mess and need help and even though you know you should push them away, you can't help yourself but go to them, because you hate to see anyone suffer.
And back to that hand holding - was that a thank you? Or was that more?
