And to me, it is just a form of being emo--the plight of being middle or upper-middle class stuck in surburbia with no real problems but plenty of manufactured ones.
Yeah I've never really liked
her, but I think the episode last season where they went to Rome spoke volumes about what she really wants in life (glamor and power that Don, successful though he is, just doesn't provide) and fit with **spoilers**
her leaving Don for a politician.
Peggy's rise to a position of power/self-confidence has obviously been fun to watch, but I think watching the weaselly Campbell grow up a little last season was rewarding as well. He seems to actually be taking his marriage a little seriously and is moving away from the constant cycle of affairs his co-workers specialize in.
It will be interesting to see where they begin next season; usually we have a several month gap between seasons, so I'm guessing the new firm the formed will be better established/in an actual office. I love the bits we've seen of Bert Cooper throughout the show, so I hope he gets a more active role in this new setting.
