    Thought it might be fun to throw out ideas on what might happen in the final season. Have a guess on what might happen? A dream scenario you'd like to see played out?

    I think Don will die. Not after a fall from a tall building :), but Don Draper the person will cease to exist. I could see him faking his death somehow and letting Betty and the kids move on with their lives without him. I could also see him re-assuming his Dick Whitman identity and turning himself in to the Army.

    I don't think Don will die, but if he does, it won't be by his own hand. That's just not Don. He's too self confident to consider suicide. Considering how many affairs he's had, I wouldn't be shocked if it's a jilted lover.

    Another (sad) possibility is that something happens to Sally and he sees the light.

    Joan's ex will be killed in Viet Nam, but I don't see her getting together with Roger. I could see Roger dying though or having liver failure

    Pete will leave the firm and have trouble finding something else in advertising. I get the feeling he's not respected among his peers.

    I think the firm, by the end of the season will cease to exist. I think Bob will have something to do with that, but I'm not sure how/why yet.

    Don sets up his own agency and it becomes a smashing success.

    I can see Peggy being very successful and Don being very NOT, symbolic of the generational change that convulsed the 1960s.

    Don Draper is far too central to everything going on in the show. I don't see Don's character dying or getting out of advertising. Unlike Freddy Rumsen, he's far too talented to simply be cast aside.

    I realize those two paragraphs sound controversial. Don's had so much success that he will get another chance.

    I think it will be like the Seinfeld season that ended with Jerry getting engaged. The forced hiatus will get a quick mention in the first episode and then be forgotten about.

    They'll drop Sunkist for the Florida Citrus Commission. Bob Benson will be put on the account and be instumental in getting Anita Bryant as their spokeswoman.

    Joan's ex will be killed by one of his own men.

    As discussed in one of the episoe threads, I think it's a mortal lock that Sally will go to Woodstock.

    And we'll see people watching the moon landing on TV.

    Peggy will be very successful as creative director. Would be ironic if she then became a drunk.

    Don will end up in California.

    Way to squeeze as much hype out of this as possible. Is this summer of 2014 and summer of 2015? or is it early 2015? USA network does this a lot with their series.

    Sad to see such a decent series slowly descend into mediocrity...and now they're prolonging it even further. Only reason I'll stick with it is because, well, I've been with it since the beginning...

    I guess they just gotta drag this out so people age enough to make it to 1970.

    I bet the reason is that they working at filling the replacement programs list and need till 2015 to do it.

    I was never a huge Mad Men fan, but I'd watched the first five seasons, and was planning on a binge viewing of season 6. But the news of the split seasons is enough for me. I'm just not interested and I'm done with it.

    (Sorry to threadcrap.)
