Mad Men began its final season Sunday on AMC with a somber, even opaque episode that was probably a case of holding its final hand close to the vest. You hope there are some sensational cards there. Creator Matthew Weiner, whose baby this is, can be sensational or sensationally drab, exactly as he chooses.
The show's integrity is unmatched, admirable and every so often deeply irritating.
At any rate, I think it will be a while before anyone sings "Zou Bisou Bisou" again.

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):

Don Draper certainly has a type. To use the comparison brought up by a memorable Sterling-Cooper ad pitch, Mad Men's mysterious protagonist has always gone more for Jackies than Marilyns. (As his marriage to Betty proved, when it comes to blondes, Don prefers the Grace Kelly model.)
To celebrate the premiere of Mad Men's final season, let's look back at the bevy of intellectual brunettes who have loved, lost and even sometimes married the cipher at the heart of the AMC drama.

Like any good actor, Vincent Kartheiser knows the importance of the rehearsal process.
Before popping the question to girlfriend Alexis Bledel, the Mad Men actor (who plays Pete Campbell) jokingly practiced his proposal on set with costars Elisabeth Moss and Jessica Paré.
"It was purely comedic but he was giving [Elisabeth] and I a facetious rendition of his planned proposal," Paré told PEOPLE at the season 6 premiere of the hit AMC show Wednesday night. "We were like, 'Great! Lets do this one without cursing and without yelling!' "
All joking aside, Kartheiser's costars could not be happier to hear the news of the engagement to Bledel, who plays Beth Dawes on series, which returns to AMC April 7 (9 p.m. ET).

Most of the country may be cooling off as fall creeps towards winter, but the sun is shining in Hawaii!
And that's where Jon Hamm and his Mad Men wife, beauty Jessica Paré, were filming scenes Wednesday for the season 6 premiere of AMC's hit show.
Leaving his buttoned-up business attire on the mainland (but without a hair out of place), Hamm, 41, disrobed and revealed a pair of colorful trunks – and a tan line.

Jessica Paré appeared only at the end of Mad Men's fourth season as Megan, but her character certainly kept busy in the hiatus, marrying Jon Hamm's Don Draper.
By the end of the season 5 premiere, the Canadian actress had created a sensation – on TV and on the Internet.
Clad in a black mini-dress, the sexy Paré, 29, belted out a killer performance of "Zou Bisou Bisou" for Don's birthday in an episode of AMC's hit show. Suddenly, Google lit up with searches for the French song.
Here are five things to know about Mad Men's newest lady on the block:
