Don Draper's Last Stand: Where Are the Final Episodes of Mad Men Heading?

Originally posted 04/05/2015 03:30PM

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.

How Does Jon Hamm Unwind After Playing Don Draper on Mad Men?

Originally posted 04/01/2015 01:20PM

For Jon Hamm, the best way to leave behind his Mad Men character's shudder-worthy on-screen drama is to wash it off, literally.

"I've certainly had a lot of awkward moments as Don Draper," Hamm, 44, tells PEOPLE. "There's a lot of bad behavior. It's not fun to play, and it's probably not fun to watch."

Don Draper in the '70s? We Speculate What Could Happen in Mad Men's Final Episodes

Mad Men in the '70s? We Speculate What Could Happen

Originally posted 03/31/2015 07:20PM

While Mad Men fans won't know for sure until Sunday's premiere, it's been widely speculated online that the second half of the show's final season won't pick up where the first half left off. In fact, it may skip ahead … to the 1970s.



It may seem hard to imagine Mad Men in any time period other than the '60s, but how else to explain those outfits? Or the trailer's use of Diana Ross's "Love Hangover," which debuted in 1976? And most importantly, what will happen to our beloved but broken characters in this new decade?

We let our imaginations run wild.

Jon Hamm on Playing the 'Troubled' Don Draper: 'You Want to Wash It Off'

Jon Hamm and Don Draper have a lot in common.

Just like the Mad Men ad exec he plays on his hit AMC drama, Hamm started with nothing before skyrocketing to the top of his profession later in life.

"This will be 20 years that I've been in Los Angeles," the 44-year-old told reporters Wednesday while doing press for the final episodes of Mad Men.
