We’ve seen our characters in the act of hearing tragic national news. I think many of us have joked that Peggy and Duck are among that select group of people who will never be able to answer the “Where were you when you heard?” question. This time Peggy has a much more respectable answer.
Peggy has avoided in-office shenanigans since her first affair, with Pete. Duck was no longer a co-worker when she entered into her fling with him. It’s pretty obvious that Ted wants to change that. We were led to believe that Nan Chaough was giving Ted the fish-eye because she didn’t want him sitting with Peggy, but then it became clear it was that she saw Abe standing there, waiting for a seat. Sitting in her boyfriend’s seat, ho-ho! I wonder what that means?
