We can't say we blame her

Mad Men is back for the first of its seven final episodes, and Jon Hamm's Don Draper is still firmly committed to being admitted to the marble-columned pantheon of Existentially Miserable Businessmen (as Represented in American Arts and Letters).
It's hard to imagine that he won't get in by the end and join such august company as Willy Loman, Charles Foster Kane, Tony Soprano, the Wolf of Wall Street and, going back quite a stretch, Silas Lapham.
But what did we expect? If Don were the Easter Bunny, he would be sitting off in the corner of the egg hunt, nursing his scotch, smoking a cigarette and distractedly encouraging the kids as they filled their baskets. "Good one you got there, Scotty … Nice, Lisa Beth, mm."
Series creator Matthew Weiner has, as he often does, urged reviewers not to spoil any of the episode's surprises. This isn't hard, since not all that much happens in Sunday's premiere. Whatever the series' ultimate conclusion, Mad Men has stuck to its peculiar tone of crepuscular heaviness.
That has been the source of much of its power: The show has been ebbing ever since it premiered.

Does it really have to end?
The second trailer for Mad Men's final episodes was released Sunday night during the Oscars, and after seven seasons and countless hangovers with Don Draper and Co., we're still not quite ready to say goodbye.
As Don narrates a heartfelt pitch about nostalgia (from the Kodak commercial pitch during season one), we see flashbacks of some of the greatest moments throughout the show's history.

Aw sookie sookie now!
The tagline for Mad Men's final seven episodes reads, "The Party's Over," but a new trailer suggests it's actually in full swing.
It's the '70s baby. Diana Ross's sultry "Love Hangover" provides the background for a summer Hamptons get-together, and the gang's all there.

Apparently certain Mad Men fans are like the show's narrative progress or one of Betty's dinner parties or from-scratch cakes: they take their time and don't rush it.
So before the last season kicks off Sunday on AMC at 10 p.m., here is what you need to know (warning: if you are a binge-watcher and haven't gotten to season six, stop reading now or forever hold your spoiler-griping):
