Which means its’ time to reel us in for yet another season of 60′s lessons in self-preservation. Speaking of… Betty […]

Don Draper’s final look in Mad Men season 5′s finale was the ultimate cliffhanger. The look, executed masterfully by Jon Hamm, left us wondering what his trajectory now is.

| April 30, 2012 at 12:58 AM EDT

Roger and Sally’s flirtationship got sour around the Baked Alaska. Glen has returned! He’s no longer creepy, instead he’s clearly Sally’s one true love! (Or future stalker, either one.)
