Tonight on "Mad Men"we will get to observe again how an atypical professional woman for those days navigates animal house. Fictional character Peggy Olson is what Kalinda is to "The Good Wife." Enigmatic with a source of resilience not many women have and few of us Baby Boomers had back in those pre-liberation days, Olson is the most interesting presence on the show. She can bounce back from a romance with a partner at the firm and put her copywriting ideas forward to The Boys in a low-key non-threatening manner.
So, we wonder if when she gets power - and she has the good ideas to go far - if she will get even with this bunch who is so indifferent to her the person as well as the professional. Or will she be shrewd enough not to channel her energy into a feud and let it simply flow into her work?
Another interesting character who Olson could align with is Don Draper's troubled daughter Sally. She's now sentenced to four days a week with a shrink for cutting her hair and masturbating in public. That girl has potential to shake up not only the smug crowd at the ad agency but also the world. Perhaps Olson will hire her some day when she operates her own agency.
