Speechless. Like a gasp from Roger Sterling if he found himself to be out of scotch, or whiskey, or any type of liquor for his morning pick-me-up. Many of you may have felt speechless at the end of Mad Men’s third season. Betty running off to Reno with the guy from the mayor’s office to divorce Don? Henry Francis is OLD. Roger, Don, Bert and Lane pulling a fast one on their bosses and opening a new ad agency? Way to go guys, sticking it to The Man, and from a hotel room nonetheless. Sal Romano fired after being hit on by the Lucky Strike son? Not fair. Peggy and Duck? Do you think Duck got a little overzealous with the wooing?
Sadly, one very obvious thing to develop: the trysts between Don and Sally’s schoolteacher. For three seasons now, I’ve held on to a glimmer of hope that Don would tone down that charm (difficult, surely), stop that wandering eye and come home one day to sweep Betty off her feet and that would be that. But we all know that the dapper Mr. Draper is so delicious that you want to put him on an ice cream cone, top with chocolate syrup and eat him. Resistance is futile.
What to expect, what to expect! Do you have your own predictions for season 4? Are you getting ready for the premiere July 25th at 10 p.m. on AMC? Why not Don your favorite Mad Men t-shirt?
