With daughter Sally at boarding school, wife Megan seemingly headed to Los Angeles and Sterling Cooper & Partners mandating he take a leave of absence, Mad Men's Don Draper (Jon Hamm) is parting ways with some of the ladies in his complicated life.

After weeks of speculation over the meaning of teaser trailers and (possibly) Easter egg-filled posters, the AMC drama launches its sixth — and likely penultimate — season with a two-hour premiere (Sunday, 9/8c). Season 5 ended with Don (Jon Hamm) giving in to the acting desires of his new bride Megan (Jessica Paré) and helping her get a part in one of the agency's commercials. As Don literally and figuratively left Megan behind at the soundstage to seek solace in a whiskey glass, he was approached by a woman at the bar who asked, "Are you alone?"
