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):

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).
