Like I said, I liked that Peggy started out all disapproving and then came around when she saw it from a different perspective.
I think seeing Megan cry at the prospect of leaving SCDP brought Peggy around. Her initial reaction was along the lines of, to borrow your phrase, "don't you hear the angels singing? How dare you!" But the tears, I think, made her realize that SCDP did matter to Megan, that she wasn't just being a dilettante about it.

Goodman had a great line about Megan being sweet. (Found it: "Whatever you think about Megan, Jessica Pare has really given her a sweetness and optimism.") Megan wants to chase her dream, but she genuinely feels bad about leaving the team in the lurch and leaving work undone. It's almost as if the tears flipped a switch in Peggy, and led her to the "good at everything" perspective.
