Megan Calvet / Draper I’ve grown fond of Megan this season as her character continues to develop. She is free-spirited, outspoken, creative, and knows how to deal with Don. I hope all of her acting dreams come true.
Sally Draper The manipulative tween of Don & Betty, Sally is surely a rebel in the make. A daughter of divorce, rock & roll, the 1960s, and just on the brink of womanhood; I can’t wait to see what’s in store for her next.
Joan Holloway / Harris While a few storylines had me cringing for Joan in the past, some good things are on the rise for her, both in Season 5 and in episodes to come. Also, did you know that Joan plays the accordion!? She’s awesome.
Dawn Chambers Dawn, oh dear Dawn; the newest hire, Don’s secretary, and the first black employee of SCDP. And what does Season 5 give you? Very little to work with. All I ask is that Dawn get more screen time in Season 6. MO R E D A W N P L E A S E ! ! ! Thank you, that is all.
Peggy Olson Without giving away any spoilers, things are looking really good for Peggy Olson. After an entire season of longing for the metaphoric (and literal) lobster lunch, Peggy is taking her career by the horns. No more gazing through the looking-glass, no more a stranger to airplanes and business trips; nobody puts Peggy in the corner!
Betty Draper / Francis / Birdie Saving the best for last, I could have drawn Betty in any number of ways; the uptight mother who can’t control her kids, picture-perfect 1960s American housewife in all the right outfits, or following the internet craze of “Fat Betty, blam de lam.” And while I totally love fat Betty, I decided to draw my personal favorite Betty: Season 1, Episode 9…suburban backyard, pink nightgown-clad, cigarette dangling out of bright red lips, rifle in hand. If Betty can’t be free than neither can those damn pigeons! But I think true freedom is still on the way for her, and all you Betty haters out there can stuff it.
