‘Mad Men': The evolution of Peggy

Alas, P&P friends, Mad Men Mondays will come a little late this season; due to a long-scheduled vacation and some problems communicating with AMC. I’ll be back Thursday, the 17th (though watch this space for a special film-festival-related announcement tomorrow); MMM will have to kick off on Monday the 21st. In the meantime, let’s happily anticipate the return of Don, Peggy, Roger, Joan, Betty, Sally, Pete, Ken, Burt (is anyone else thinking that Burt Cooper should be the star of his own spin-off?), and the gang. And let’s take a look at the character who may have changed the most over the show’s seven seasons, Peggy:

Even the voice Elisabeth Moss is using is different; Peggy’s tone was much lighter and more girlish early on, and her posture and presence so meek. Last we saw of her, she was wearing pants (!) and sitting in Don’s office, because “this is where everything is.” Is that where she’ll be when we find her next? Stay tuned; we’ll discuss soon.
