Are we going to be seeing any more of Megan Draper on “Mad Men” next season? Regardless of whether or not you liked the character, there’s no question that she was polarizing. Some liked the idea of seeing Don Draper try and learn from his mistakes with someone new, while others longed for the days when there was more Betty.
Unfortunately, we still do not know any sort of definitive answer as to whether or not we will be seeing more of Jessica Pare next season; however, series boss Matthew Weiner did tell TVLine at the Creative Arts Emmys over the weekend something that does give us an indication that we are probably going to be seeing more of Megan as she starts to make her transition into an actress:
“He loves her, and he gave her what she wanted [with the commercial]. I don’t know that the marriage is over … If you go back to the beginning of the season … and hear her talking about wanting to be an actress, you realize this is where it ended up, how driven she was. Not that she used him, but that he gave this to her. No matter what, we’re seeing that it was not the fantasy that he had about their relationship.”
The primary reason that there was so much debate over Megan’s future stemmed from one scene in the season 5 finale, which showed Megan bathed in a pool of light filming the commercial, while at the same time Don walked off alone to a bar, only to be asked a question as to whether or not he was single. The suggestion here was that maybe the old Draper was back … but it is also possible that this could just be temptation and a means to show us that this is not the same “mad man” that we once knew.
Do you think that “Mad Men” is taken to a new and exciting level with Pare in the cast, or do you just find Megan irritating? We want to hear some of your thoughts below! If you want to check out some more scoop pertaining to Elisabeth Moss, you can do so over at the link here.
