Peggy’s been our main girl on Mad Men since the very beginning. The evolution of her character has been astounding. It’s hard to imagine life without Peggy on the small screen. When asked about what’s coming for Peggy, Scott teased that Peggy’s been on the right path all along.

“You know, my feeling about the show is that the characters have come back to their true selves, and the only thing I’ll say is that, as far as I’m concerned, that holds true for all of them,” Scott told

So, where does that leave Don? Our troubled, enigmatic protagonist has been on his own journey, and finding out Don’s legacy is going to be epic and totally worth the wait. 

“I feel the way that the series wraps up is a befitting look into Don’s story and honors the show and the characters remain true to who they are!” Scott continued. asked Jon Hamm himself at the show’s NYC premiere if he thinks Don will find his true happiness by series end, and his response is perfect. “I hope so! I have been rooting for that for a long time, so I hope so!” he told us.
