** AlphaBitch Joan: she was treated as a sex object by most of the men and it starts wearing her down, she was raped by her fiancee, humiliated by an ex, had a father who left her, and dealt with a corporation robbing her of her money and autonomy.
** Betty, as with Don, she has viewers both shaking their fists at her while wanting to console her.

How people need to accept themselves for how they are while growing as people along the way, even if they don't change completely, they need to work within their own psyche and realize their full potential. And that everyone deserves some love.

** Bob Benson (for those that [[BaseBreaker don't consider him]] TheScrappy) is this among quite a number of fans, due to his MagnificentBastard tendencies, his almost creepily optimistic nature, and the strength of James Wolk's performance. The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MpUWrl3-mc8 "NOT GREAT, BOB"]] [[MemeticMutation meme]] that emerged following the Season 6 finale probably helped ascend him to this position.

** Kinsey growing a beard in season two becomes this after he writes a script for an episode of [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries]]. (Wrong show, right franchise.)

*** Despite the win for Hamm, they managed to miss winning Best Drama Series over ''Series/GameOfThrones'', whom, according to most, had what was probably their weakest season. They also lost out to Best Writing against Game of Thrones as well.

Added DiffLines:

** The usage of the lesser known song by the Zombies called "This Will Be Our Year" was a great capper to the episode "A Day's Work"


Added DiffLines:

** Was Peggy and Stan getting together in the finale a well-earned satisfying conclusion that, while admittedly cheesy, was a great conclusion to show that Peggy can really have it all? Or was it an overly rushed conclusion that was too stereotypical and sexist because it seemed like giving her a man was what she needed all along?

** Jon Hamm has spoken in interviews of how it amazes him fans talk of how great a guy Don is and even wanting to live like him, not getting the man is a wretched, selfish, self-destructive mess.
