Mad Men Season 7 Premiere Preview: “Time Zones” [VIDEO and PHOTOS]

It’s the beginning of the end. Just like Breaking Bad, Mad Men will split its final season into two parts. And what should we expect? Considering I gave up on the show during season 6, my expectations are quite high. I’ve always loved the great writing, the rich atmosphere, the attention to detail and the nuanced acting. But at the beginning of season 6 when it looked like Don Draper was making all the same mistakes he’d made since the beginning of the series, I threw in the towel. I still haven’t watched those episodes, but I think I might have to.  I know (now) that I should’ve stuck it out because there were consequences and maybe Don has finally learned that he needs to change. But can he? Will he be able to make those changes stick? Whether or not he can, I want to see him try. And I want to see what the other characters are up to as well.

So what can we expect from this season? As you know, it’s almost impossible to get any intel on any Mad Men episode before it airs. So I’ll share what little I was able to discover about “Episode 1:”

Don makes a friend; Joan has drinks with a client; Roger receives a perplexing phone call; Peggy hears new work.

Interesting, but what does that tell us? Very little. And I like it that way. I don’t want to know too much going into these episodes. I want to discover it as I watch.

The seventh and final season of Mad Men premieres Sunday at 10/9c on AMC.
