First Mad Men Season 7 Teaser: Don Disembarks

Ladies and gentlemen, you are now free to roam about the Mad Men.

A quick teaser for the award-winning series’ upcoming seventh season shows us Jon Hamm’s Don Draper, nattily attired as usual, getting off a TWA jet and donning his hat.

Is Don flying to/fleeing from Megan? Is he returning to New York to resume his partnership at Sterling Cooper & Partners? Did he just become a Gold Level member of the Mile-High Club, thanks to some accommodating stewardess?

You’ll have to wait until the AMC drama returns — Sunday, April 13 at 10/9c — to find out. Until then, watch this video repeatedly and hit the comments with your best pitches for what’s likely to happen in the series’ final season.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    It’s almost funny how tight lipped they are about this show. They never give away ANYTHING that will happen, even in the “Next week on Mad Men” scenes, they never actually give anything away. This trailer doesn’t tell us anything, except that Don gets off of a plane. You’ve got to respect them for sticking to their guns in an industry that’s run on hype pieces and previews and such.

      Next week on Mad Men: Peggy enters a room that may or may not be her office. Pete looks grumpy. Don is exasperated.

    • PB says:

      The creator, Matt W, wanted no previews but AMC does so what you see is a compromise.

    • Cindy Moser says:

      Apparently, we left Don in not-so-good-graces at work! He has been slacking off MORE than usu. Getting off of the plane here, alone, I might add, does not look like he is happy with his past outcome(s). And, because of this look, I venture to guess that this is the last scene – wrapping up the last season. After telling his children about his “childhood” – he no longer has anything to offer them. Megan has left to pursue Hollywood. And Don, well, no matter where he is, will be like a cat and cash in on one of his 9 lives. He has the gift of gab and will be just fine, eventually. So he will not necessarily enjoy starting over alone – but feel like it’s another chance to invent himself (yet, again) in a new decade – the casual, economically challenging 70s! The Vietnam Conflict will end, but he will be confused with its outcome.

    Where do you hear Que Sera, Sera? Nothing in the background is ‘bumping along’ in the video I’m seeing…

    I just read an article in the current issue of TV Guide regarding what Matt W’s take is on the theme for Season 7a – he said the theme is about consequences, and whether or not you must pay consequences for past misdeeds. Matt alluded to the fact that if anyone could figure out a way to escape his ‘consequences’, it would be Don Draper.

    “But what is happiness? It’s a moment before you need more happiness. I won’t settle for 50% of anything, I want 100%. You’re happy? You’re not happy with anything. You don’t want most of it, you want all of it, and I won’t stop until you get all of it.”

    “Move on. It will shock you how much of this never happened.”

    “Who knows why people do what they do?”

    As soon as his wife (first and second), his kids and his colleagues realized who Don Draper really is, they want nothing more to do with him. The illusion of who he is, and thus by association, who they are, is called into question. Because the fact of the matter is that everyone in Don’s world is living inside the illusion he has successfully created, both in his personal life, and perhaps more importantly, in the illusion he has created in his career as Madison Ave. most successful ad man.

    You are the image you create – you are the product, the brand that needs to be sold to the public. Once that brand is tarnished, once people find out who you really are, you have to disappear, reinvent yourself (again), somewhere new, becoming someone new, doing something new. Illusion, reinvention, escape.
