I don't think they've been written out as much as the show has simply become too sprawling. It's hard to have Peggy involved as much from a different agency. It's hard to also work in Meghan's career as well. It's really come at the expense of Betty and the kids (an arc that lost steam 3 years ago, so I'm not sad to see it go) and at the expense of the continuity of the show.

I like Dawn as a character; I think she could really be a nice addition and strong protagonist going forward. I hope Don doesn't try to bang her.

For the record, Don's pitch campaign was better than Peggy's, but Peggy happened to hit the bulls-eye for the guy doing the choosing.

And yeah, I think Don will eventually end up dead. There's clearly nothing that's going to satiate the man. With Anna Draper gone, I just don't think he has a moral compass left at all and there's nowhere for him to go at this point. He's rudderless and Weiner's going to kill him off when all is said and done. And they're also closing in on some of the shittiest times in American history. 1968-1972 were pretty much catastrophes for the American Psyche.
