Mad Men Creator Puts Death Rumors to Rest

Matthew Weiner“Mad Men” Season 6 has some disturbing questions that keep repeating in fan chatter. Who’s going to die? Is Megan already dead? Is she Sharon Tate? Is Bob Benson a psycho killer?

The buzz grew so loud that “Mad Men” showrunner Matthew Weiner broke his strict policy of not commenting on upcoming storylines and revealed to the LA Times that “It’s just not part of the show. No one’s going to die … this season.”

With only one episode left, it’s not exactly a huge spoiler. But any kind of confirmation from Weiner about something that hasn’t happened yet is a big deal (even the kind that confirms what won’t happen) because he simply doesn’t talk about this stuff.

It’s not clear why Weiner felt the need to speak out — maybe he wants fans to be able to watch the finale without wondering if or when a character might kick the bucket — but there’s a bigger question to be raised: How come a significant number of fans were so obsessed with predicting a major death to begin with?

Ever sinceĀ  Megan Draper (Jessica Pare) donned the same T-shirt that Sharon Tate wore in a 1967 photo shoot, “Mad Men” conspiracy theorists have been predicting her demise. The theory is that the show hasn’t skimped on showing the social upheaval prevalent in 1968 New York, what with all the wailing police sirens, the riots and Peggy stabbing (albeit accidentally) her then boyfriend Abe with a makeshift bayonet.

We look forward to seeing where the season end takes us, given the good news that every one is safe…for now….
