"Are you alone?"
That was the rather loaded question facing Mad Men's Don Draper (Jon Hamm) as the AMC drama ended its fifth season. Would Don, who had finally given into his wife Megan's desire to be an actress by getting her a job in a shoe commercial, go back to his philandering ways?
Mad Men Finale: Chasing phantoms and being alone
"When you see the face of Don at the end of the last episode, you say, "Oh, that's where that guy's been," creator Matthew Weiner tells TVGude.com. "I recognize him."
But Weiner says that doesn't mean Don is just going to throw his marriage out the window...
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....

Jared Harris is having a tough year.
Earlier this season....
For someone who adamantly hates spoilers, Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner has pretty much been telegraphing Sunday's episode all season long.
(And speaking of spoilers, this is where you should tune out if you haven't seen "Commissions and Fees.") ...
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....
Mick Jagger may have been the host and the musical guest for Saturday Night Live's season finale, but the show belonged to Kristen Wiig, who, after seven years, is leaving the show.
And the final episode was proof of just how much star power the show's losing. For the night's final sketch, Wiig and other cast members posed as...
Jorma Taccone and Andy Samberg
They might enjoy a lazy Sunday, but last Saturday night, the guys of Lonely Island were rockin' like they were on a boat!
In honor of their 100th digital short for Saturday Night Live, cast member Andy Samberg and his evil-genius partners, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer, whipped up a mash-up of some of the best clips from the past seven seasons.
Will Ferrell, Saturday Night Live
Saturday Night Live vet Will Ferrell stopped by to host for the third time with a little help from his friends, including fellow alums Ana Gasteyer (the Bobbie to his Marty Culp) and Will Forte.
Ferrell kicked things off by reprising his most famous impersonation — of former President George W. Bush. Turns out, George got a little lost about three and a half years ago and ended up moving into Vice President's Joe Biden's closet. Thankfully, George was there to...
TGS invaded Saturday Night Live's Studio 8H for 30 Rock's second cameo-filled live show on April 26, which found the cast reminiscing about some of the strangest (and thankfully fictitious) live TV to ever come out of NBC.
