peggy x ted

Part of a discussion I was having on google+ about this week’s Mad Men.

“And I think it all comes down to Peggy. Don can talk all he wants about how Ted’s judgment is clouded when it comes to Peggy’s ideas, but true or not, I think that has very little to do with what Don did.  He is weirdly possessive of her, even though he often treats her like shit. She’s one of the few people on this show that seem to be able to hurt him by being angry with him or being disappointed in him. For her to like Ted, not just romantically, but as a person and as an ad-man…Don can’t let that stand.  So he destroys it in one of the most hurtful ways he can. While playing the guy who is just looking out for the company.  So, seriously, fuck him.”
