Don Draper's Protege Is Sick Of Being Asked When They're Going To Hook Up

Mad Men fans will have to agree that the past season had its fair
share of ups and downs between Don Draper and Peggy Olson. Their unique
relationship was best expressed during the episode "The Suitcase," which
ends with both of them sharing this tender moment below:
Fans soon heralded the scene as a sign that a Don-Peggy coupling was underway. But the actors who play the character, Jon Hamm and Elizabeth Moss, are pretty much sure this will not be happening. Here's what they said during a recent interview with Vulture:
Jon Hamm: It's not a mistake that the show starts on Peggy's first day at work. In many ways, the story of Mad Men is the story of Peggy Olson: a young, ambitious, talented girl finding her way in this crazy world. I think Don and Peggy have a special relationship. They're unsatisfied with who they are and are willing to do what it takes to become something else.
Elizabeth Moss: People are constantly asking if they're gonna sleep together. I always get annoyed, because their relationship is more than that. And to keep that going over five years without selling out and having something else happen-that to me is really interesting and rarely done well.
Jon Hamm: People want to put us in a "Sam and Diane" box, but it's about their mutual appreciation for the work. That's where the material strikes its resonant chord, when it's ostensibly about one thing and then it becomes about so much more. That's the fun thing about Don and Peggy, and that's the deeper thing about Mad Men.
