“I think in the world of the show we see the office through Peggy’s eyes. She’s the new girl and we see her from her very first day… And we’ve watched through over 50 episodes of television her grow and become more confident and we’ve watched Don alternately shout at her and correct her and not be very nice to her but also be profoundly nice to her … I think Peggy is very important to Don. And I think you saw at the end of season three, when the firm blows up and they have to start all over again, he says ‘If you leave, I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to hire you back.’  And I think that sums up relationship that Don and Peggy have.”

Jon Hamm talks about Don Draper’s relationship with his copywriter Peggy Olsen, seemingly shutting down any potential relationship between the two. “30 Rock” used a phrase on Thursday night that strikes me as the perfect descriptor for the relationship on “Men Men” between Peggy and Don: subordi-friendship. They’re friends, but one is subordinate to the other. (And sex is not a good idea.) [TV Fanatic]
