Mad Men Season Finale Poll

Ok, just so you don't have to I've spent an hour sifting through all the sites with rumors about the Mad Men Season Finale.

The most persistent rumor is that Sally Draper will commit suicide. Personally, I can't believe AMC is going to air a little girl suicide so I doubt it.

The most likely of all the rumors I've read is that they sign Disney and that saves the firm. In 1965 Disney was just about to announce they were going to build Disneyworld in Florida and Walt himself was dying of lung cancer. Plus, the episode is called "Tomorrowland" and that was the name of a Disney ride.

Of course the Great Blackout happened in 1965 and they could just use that as a way to not resolve anything and simply leave things up in the air.

The producers have said that something dramatic happens to Don and Peggy which brings up its own possibilities (them boinking during the blackout?).

On the other hand, Betty Draper's "Q Rating" is in the toilet this season so they might just find a way to write her off, because she's an expensive actress and they are on a budget and why keep the one character that almost nobody likes?

Anyway, here are the most persistent rumors.

Take your pick.

(Fuck, I hate that you can't edit polls. That should read "Pete's Dad" not "Pete's Day.")
