This week prepare yourself for the End of an Era, as AMC rolls out the second half of the seventh and final season of the best show in TV history, Mad Men. You could wade through the blathersphere, where each click takes you to another derivative fountain of nostalgia about seasons past, or you can catch up on the show by staying right here on MoS.
A year ago, LG discussed how the beginning of Season 7 in the year 1969 looked from the perspective of the show’s two long-running, dynamic female characters, Peggy and Joan. When the first episode of the season dealt these characters very different hands, LG suggested that Peggy was “playing a long game,” a prediction that held up well by the end of the first half-season as she landed the fast-food burger chain account. Pete Campbell’s California makeover and Don Draper’s awkward, in-between, “bi-coastal” existence while on leave from SC&P prompted a look back at a previous trip to Cali in Season 2.
So, get started: the new episode airs Sunday, April 5!
