1. It was important going into this to understand that there was no way we were all getting out of this happy.

"I didn't like the ending to that TV show." --Everyone ever for every TV show ever.

2. And we all accepted that we'd never stop side-eyeing Don Draper's decison-making.

Oh, Don. What white person nonsense is this? #MadMen #MadMenFinale

3. Active parenting might not be the noble choice when you're terrible at decisions.

Most radical suggestion in Mad Men finale: It might be better for all concerned if some people with children step away from being parents.
