"Advertising is based on one thing, happiness.
And you know what happiness is?
Happiness is the smell of a new car.
It's freedom from fear.
It's a billboard on the side of the road
that screams reassurance that whatever you are doing is okay.
You are okay
Don Draper
'Mad Men'

"Happiness is a warm gun."
John Lennon (Lennon/McCartney)

Just a little something to buttress my earlier argument. Like I said, I could be wrong; I usually am. But looking at the big picture, this scenario, in which Don would kill somebody (not necessarily Peggy or Joan) to protect his secret, would go a long way towards building the buzz to bring the show back for another season!
