The final season of Mad Men feels soclose yet so … far … away, doesn’t it? On one hand, we can’t wait to see how Don (Jon Hamm), Peggy (Elisabeth Moss), Pete (Vincent Kartheiser) and Joan (Christina Hendricks) wrap everything up. On the other, we really don’t want to say goodbye after seven groundbreaking seasons.
While we make up our conflicted minds about how we feel towards the show’s end, you bet we’re into getting as much information about the upcoming season as possible. Even if that means diving into little teasers here and there. Like, during that time the cast hinted at what’s to come during the TCA Press Tour. Or when we got a hold of these artsy first-look photos.
One of the less pressing but constantly lingering questions on our minds has always been wondering what’s going to happen to Henry (Chris Stanley) and Betty (January Jones) when the show returns. Are they doomed to follow the same path as Don and Betty? Or is there a real future in store for those two? With everything else always coming together and falling apart on this series, Betty and Henry might just actually be the most stable relationship right about now. Which makes sense, given how completely cute they can be around each other when they’re both in the right frame of mind.
So we were tickled redder than Joan’s hair when AMC allowed us to share this exclusive interview clip with Chris Stanley talking about exactly that. Does he think Betty and Henry are a real marriage? Are they end game?
The only way to find out is to watch the clip below.
And of course by tuning into the final season of Mad Men when it returns on Sunday, April 5.
