Response to 11 Reasons To Love Megan Draper On “Mad Men”:
I don’t see how Megan is all that independent. (Dr. Fay was independent, so is Peggy). She got her copywriting job through Don and now she gets her commercial through Don. And she seems written into the script to show up the other women—Betty and Peggy. The script could have gone in a way more exciting direction if Jane, Peggy, and Dr. Fay had bonded together in exciting ways or if Betty had been allowed to face the dissatisfaction that led her to getting fat. I do like it that Megan reminds Don he’s getting old, this is a point, but other characters were starting to point this up anyway.
