After the Douley died, and Thompson took credit for saving the day in the finale, he finds himself promoted to the head of SSR New York this season. "He's got to take the reins and become the man he's ultimately going to be," Murray says. "He's got control over what Carter's going to do, where she's going to be. He's in charge of Sousa. He's in charge of the SSR."
Of course, as the trailer makes abundantly clear, where Peggy's going to be this season is Los Angeles. But while the change of scenery and new SSR hierarchy will shake up the team, one thing remains the same: Thompson will still be a jerk to Peggy.
"I think we're going to see some classic Thompson," Murray says. "But we'll also get to peek behind some curtains and see a bit more."
