The tragedy of King Draper is that now that he is "ready" (as he tells "Di"), the tough new girl in his life reveals that she is not. She needs to suffer a bit more for her past misdeeds.

Roger Sterling will definitely be one of the favorites of the Mad Men characters missed when the show concludes next year. But also I believe one of the other secondary characters will also be missed, and that is Harry Crane, acted by Rick Sommer.
