If you're still reeling from Lane's suicide on the penultimate episode of Mad Men's fifth season, don't worry: The actors are too.
Mad Men's Jared Harris discuss Lane's big twist
"It was devastating," Vincent Kartheiser tells TVGuide.com. "There were tears and sadness. But I'm happy that Jared [Harris] had a nice big ending and something that will impact the characters hopefully for the next two seasons. His character will kind of remain with the show even though he won't be there alive."
Just how much impact will the ghost of Lane have on Mad Men's finale, interestingly titled "The Phantom"? In our Q&A, Kartheiser tackles that question and also looks back at a number of questionable decisions (Joan! Rory Gilmore!) his character Pete Campbell made this season. Plus: Kartheiser tells us why Pete will never be fully content....
On Sunday's Mad Men, two of the show's strongest female characters decided what they were worth — in two very different ways.
Summer preview: Get scoop on the summer's must-see new shows
Let's start with the sadder (and perhaps less believable) of the two story lines. Joan (Christina Hendricks) has always been the "dynamite redhead" with whom many an adman and client would kill to spend a night. As such, Herb, the head of the dealers association, who perhaps senses Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce's desperation to win the Jaguar account, demands Joan's sexual services as a way to persuade him to vote SCDP's way....

When did Mad Men become a horror movie?
Set against the backdrop of panic caused by Richard Speck's 1966 massacre of eight nursing students in Chicago, Sunday's episode, "Mystery Date," was filled with chills (a strangulation, things that go bump in the night at the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce offices, grandma Pauline's butcher knife) and at least one thrill (Joan finally shipping her husband off to Vietnam for good).

Let's start with the thrill first...
There's really only one thing Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner wants you to know about Season 5: After 17 months, the show finally returns with a two-hour premiere Sunday.
When pressed, however, the notoriously tight-lipped Weiner offered one nugget about the advertising drama's long-awaited fifth season. "The theme is every man for himself," he tells TVGuide.com.
Mad Men Refresher Course: What's up with Don's love life?
That notion should be nothing new to Don Draper (Jon Hamm), a self-made man who fought to transform himself from Midwestern farm boy Dick Whitman into Madison Avenue's biggest fish. But following his sudden, impulsive proposal...

After an interminable 17-month hiatus, AMC's Mad Men is finally back! Because it's been so long since we last visited the offices of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, we'll be playing catch-up with the show's most important story lines all week before the show's two-hour premiere on Sunday, March 25 at 9/8c. Up next: Who is the father of Joan's baby?...
It's been so long since Mad Men was on the air that it feels as though the show actually shot in the 1960s. We don't care to dwell on the contract negotiations that delayed it. What's important is that Don, Roger, Peggy, Pete, Joan, Betty, Lane, Sally and the rest of that impeccably groomed, highly dysfunctional crowd are back. With Season 5 premiering in a two-hour episode on March 25, TV Guide Magazine sat down with the cast — and creator Matthew Weiner — in Los Angeles to try to pry some secrets out of them and chat about why the wait was worth it.
The latest actress to fall victim to an alleged nude photo-hacking scandal? Glee's Heather Morris.
Glee's Chris Colfer is a very busy man.
He stars on the hit Fox musical, is releasing a children's book in May, and makes his screenwriting — and leading man — debut later this year in the dark high school comedy Struck By Lightning. In the film, Colfer plays Carson Phillips, a high school student who blackmails his peers into contributing to his campus literary magazine and then gets — yup — struck by lightning.
