The Rape Scene
Season 2, Episode 12 — “The Mountain King”
For one of the most emotional Joan episodes ever, Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant gave her a rare color-block moment. The shades of purple vary so slightly yet don’t clash, it’s clear a lot of thought went into creating a look that would stick in viewers’ mind, much like the traumatizing rape scene between Joan and then-fiancé (!!!) Greg.
