Don's Secretary Megan on Mad Men

Mad Men: What Is Megan's Game?

I cannot figure Don's new secretary Megan out. With her nurturing nature, eager-to-please work ethic, and French extraction method, what is she gunning for? After last night's episode, does she want to be Peggy? Or Betty? Or both?

I love Peggy. She's calculated and weird and you never know what her next move will be. Despite whispers that she climbed her way to copywriter after a roll in Lucky Strike tobacco leaves with Don, it's her talent and tenacity and Don's admiration of it that lifted her from the secretary pool. But hard work and talent wasn't the only way to get a nylon foot in a 1960s door.

Helen Gurley Brown spread the gospel of good looks in the '60s. First in 1962's Sex and the Single Girl and later as editor of Cosmo, she advocated tactics that ranged from flirting to sex. Maybe this is the career advice Megan follows?

Will Peggy have to make room for a new female copywriter, or is Megan just another one of Don's passing dalliances?

She seems to be a combination. I've been taking her character as 'the new woman' of the 60's, so to speak. She's more sexually aggressive, and appears more aggressive in her career as well. She was nurturing with Sally when she fell in the office...she's an interesting character, and actually reminds me slightly of Rachel Menken. I hope she sticks around for awhile.
