When Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss) quit Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce and walked out of its offices in the penultimate episode of "Mad Men" this past season, viewers were left wondering if the character would be back next year. Things certainly sounded bad for fans of the trailblazing woman when shortly after the episode, actor Jared Harris, whose Lane Pryce had just offed himself, hinted that Moss' beloved character had left the show for good.
But those eager for more of Peggy can now let out a little cheer. Moss confirmed in an interview with TV Guide that Peggy will indeed be back on "Mad Men" even though she has left (former) boss Don Draper's growing ad agency for a gig at a rival company.
The actress hinted to the magazine that "I do know certain things about what's going to happen" and that she has "knowledge of stuff." But of course, this being the closely guarded "Mad Men," Moss didn't let much of anything slip during the interview. However, viewers can probably expect to see Don and Peggy cross paths at some point.
"Like (creator) Matt (Weiner) said, I think that she's forever linked to Don in some way," Moss told TV Guide. "They're going to have some interaction."
Perhaps another random run-in, as with their unexpected little get together as fellow professionals at the movie theater in the season finale? Maybe even a friendly chat over a few old fashioneds at a trendy Madison Avenue bar about Peggy's blossoming career? After all, Don did teach her much of what she knows, and now, she's on her own without his regular guidance.
Speaking of which, Moss told the magazine that there could be some tales to be told about Peggy's new adventures. "I think that as inevitable as her story of leaving (was), I would say that there are (more) stories that are sort of logical in that same sense," she told TV Guide. "But it's not been written yet, so we'll see."
Indeed we will. See you next season, Peggy!
