Mad Men Season 5 Spoiler: Will Peggy Be in the Finale? Is She Gone for Good?
We're all eager to see how Peggy is fairing after ditching SCDP in Mad Men Season 5, Episode 11: “The Other Woman.” We didn't get to see her this week (Season 5, Episode 12: "Commissions and Fees"). Will she make an appearance in the Season 5 finale (Season 5, Episode 13: "The Phantom")? Or is she possibly gone for good? (Nooooo!)

In a recent interview with The Daily, Jared Harris (who played the now dearly departed Lane Price) made a comment that suggests Peggy won't be showing up in the finale — or possible ever again.
When asked if the cast threw him a goodbye party, Jared said no. "Actors are always ending jobs. It isn’t a big deal in that sense. Also other people had left the show that had been there since the beginning. Elisabeth [Moss] left the episode before and she’d been there since the beginning."
Um … hold up. Peggy left the company, but that doesn't mean Elizabeth necessarily left the show. When The Daily asked for clarification about whether or not Peggy is ever coming back, Jared said, "I have no idea what Matthew Weiner intends to do and even then I couldn’t tell you."
So, make of that what you will. We're choosing not to freak out about what could be a random comment until there's more info.
