Peggy was the biggest loser of this episode of Mad Men. Her two mentors, Don and Ted, emotionally dump her, and her boyfriend actually dumps her. Though she did stab him, so that break up seems pretty fair.
To enter the great margarine debate, Peggy wears a butter-yellow dress with a mod white panel in front. Is she the butter everyone is fighting over, unwilling to take the cheaper margarine option? Maybe, as Don and Ted will do anything to get her on their side. Well, except for touch her hand.
When confronted by Ted about some inappropriate hand touching during a pitch, Peggy wears a white and red dot dress with a trompe l’oeil navy skirt. They go back and forth, each saying that “the kiss” meant nothing, but that they actually think about it all the time. Clearly this is not going to end well.
Furthering Peggy’s bad luck, she stabs Abe square in the gut with a knife attached to a broomstick because she thought he was an intruder. During this scene, Peggy is wearing a hot pink pajama set. The following morning in the office she looks wrecked in a mint green dot dress with a tie neck, completely sans makeup or hairspray. When she seeks personal compassion from Ted, he is cold, and Don just retreats into his office thinking of work.
