basically he's letting go of trudy (and her forced lifestyle that never really included what pete wanted), don and bob benson (who always will toy with pete because they are more cunning and have nothing to lose). hell all of NYC (his stiff UES upbringing, cramped life, strained family relations) is a shackle.
also pete was portrayed as the progressive of the group with the market analysis showing they would profit from marketing certain brands of TVs to african americans.
of the team that is going to Cali? pete is the best fit. I feel bad for Rizzo though.
