"Are you alone?"
Those last words uttered on Season Five of Mad Men, a show with minimalist dialogue, left viewers wondering what that question portended for Season Six, premiering tonight on AMC. In just a few hours, we'll get a chance to find out on the opening, two-hour first episode of this new season.
Here's where we left the main characters after Season Five's conclusion.
Don Draper: Don heard the question "Are you alone?" from a beautiful woman while sitting in a bar. In seasons past, we all know what would have happened next. In the new world of married life with Megan, we're left to guess Don's response.
Megan Draper: While Don was left to ponder the "alone" question in a bar, Megan was preparing to shoot a commercial that Don helped her to secure.
Betty Francis: Bloated Betty, struggling with weight gain, was last seen in a moment of tenderness with her daughter, Sally Draper.
Peggy Olson: Peggy left Sterling Cooper last season for a larger firm and more money, but will return this season, according to founder Matthew Weiner.
Joan Harris: Last year was an eventful season for Joan--she split with her husband, slept with a client and became a partner at the agency.
Roger Sterling: When last seen, Roger was tripping on LSD and seemed determined not to fade away in the brave new world of the reconfigured agency.
Pete Campbell: Pete brazenly conducted an affair with the wife of a colleague. She later had electroshock therapy and couldn't remember him.
Sally Draper: Puberty has started for Sally, offering a moment to bond with her mother in contrast to the girlfriend relationship she seems to have with Megan.
Tune in tonight at 8:00 CT/9:00 ET for the premiere.
