Secondly, Diana (Elizabeth Reaser) appeared in the second half of the final season and so far has been a fairly large presence.

What that does for many viewers is create a sense of panic: There are now only five episodes left characters?!

Taken together — Don doing the same old thing all over again, and with a woman who, by the way, isn't exactly lighting up the screen with her charm and personality — these elements create fear that Diana is a pointless detour at best and a frustrating waste of time at worst.

It's making some viewers check their watch repeatedly as time runs out on this brilliant series.
