Poor Mr. Draper; just when he gets his mojo back, all the women in his life grow more distant than ever. And the goodbye scene with Don and Peggy in Don’s office, right on the heels of Don reeling from what Joan has done? Devastating.
10. Ted Chaough — Unfortunately I don’t really remember him from previous seasons, but seems like competent foil for Don. Who knows what tricks/secret lives Peggy’s new boss will have?
9. Roger Sterling — Surprisingly quiet, but not speaking up more for Joan speaks volumes.
8. Ken Cosgrove — His loyalty to Peggy is admirable. When will we hear more about the sci-fi writing?
7. Pete Campbell — Pretty much locking down his status of most odious, most un-respectable-yet-undeniably-successful member of the firm with his organized purchase of Joan’s services.
6. Megan Draper — Falling fast.
5. Michael Ginsberg — Doesn’t fall for Megan’s friend’s attention-whoring.
4. Lane Pryce — Probably ends up doing the most for Joan.
3. Don Draper — Stood up for Joan, but in the least effective way possible. And finally notices Peggy’s unhappiness, at the least meaningful moment possible.
2. Joan Harris — Can you blame her?
1. Peggy Olson — You made your move, girl. Let’s see how far this goes.
