From Don to Joan to Roger - 'Mad Men' Season 6 Primer
Where were Christina Hendricks, Jon Hamm and others when season 5 ended?
Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss)
While Don is distracted by the ups and downs of his marriage, Peggy essentially carries the agency's creative business for much of season 5. But with Don being verbally abusive like the old days and Michael Ginsberg eclipsing her as SCDP's rising star, Peggy decides it's time to step out on her own, and takes a job as copy chief at Ted Chaough's agency.
