9 'Mad Men' Season 7 Theories Based on the Super Trippy Artwork

April can not come any faster. With True Detective Season 1 coming to a close this Sunday and Breaking Bad having ended what feels like years ago, there will be a big sad hole for television's greatest dramas. That is, until Mad Men Season 7 rightfully returns to our screens. Hold on to your (cigarette) butts, everyone, because we are closing in on the final season of the AMC masterpiece.

Season 7 is going to be split in two parts — the first airing April 13 (WHAT AN OMINOUS NUMBER!), 2014 and the second half in 2015. There were puh-lenty of theories circulating around Season 6's art work, with the planes, police, and Don being multiple people going in multiple directions. And a few of those theories (Don leaving/being fired from the agency) actually did come true. Mad Men creators have been notoriously hush-hush about what actually happens in the show, giving viewers vague trailers and teasers, and leaving them only to come up with their own conspiracies.

So, take a look at the brand new Season 7 (YET ANOTHER OMINOUS NUMBER!) poster, consider our theories, and then tweet us (@Bustle) your own theories about how you think it's all going to go down.

The New Poster

Just let this sink in for a little bit. Season 7 is going to be one hell of a trip.

Don is Definitely Going to Die

Well, aside from how recklessly Don seems to go about his life, this new artwork ties back to a lot of Season 6 theories about Don’s fate, particularly the I nferno theory — Don walks away from the devil, or, you know, himself. By the looks of the new artwork, Don is only going to sink further into temptation until his inevitable end.

Don is already dead

And the whole series has just been him experiencing all of the nine circles of hell. Limbo (visiting his childhood home), lust (in spades), gluttony (Betty’s depression), greed, wrath, heresy, violence, fraud (Lane’s suicide), and treachery — All of which have shaped this entire series (And remember, Don was reading The Inferno last season!!!). Also, there was a “Don is Dead” scare in the opening scene of Season 6? Oh, yeah, and the falling man in the opening credits has been showing us Don’s death since day one.

Megan Joins a Cult

Look at the way the woman in the artwork has her eyes closed and is being seeimingly drawn away from the bottle of wine (Don). They at first appear to be non-threatening, but the way her neck and head are enveloped prove to be more menacing. Megan is drawn away from sin and taken into a “rebirth” of sorts.

Peggy Becomes the Old Don

Peggy could also be the woman in the image. And Don sits back and watches (from heaven/hell/purgatory or earth, you be the judge) as she becomes the alcoholic, power-hungry Ad Man that Don started as in the beginning of the series. Remember that image of Peggy at the end of Season 6 with her head tilted just like Don in the series’ opening credits? HMMMMMMM? And maybe that plane Don is on takes him back to California to get even further away from the empire he helped to build.

Megan Commits Suicide or Accidentally Overdoses

Megan is the corpse in the image, with burial flowers wrapped around her. The way that the glass is being poured towards her while her eyes are close represent that it happened without full consciousness. Now let’s just hope Don doesn’t pull a Walter White and watches her choke on her own vomit.

Hallucinations A-Plenty

Things will only continue to get more and more surreal as the series comes to a close. The technicolor artwork takes us deeper into the era of free love and minimal inhibition. And as entertaining as it was to see Roger experience LSD or the tap-dancing side effect of “focus” injections…it will only have us question what is real and not real.

Don and Betty Get Back Together

…And then Betty dies. Based on the Greek mythology of Hyacinth, who was a beautiful lover of Apollo (Don) and admired by Zephyr (Henry). Hyacinth was struck by Apollo’s own discus (Don’s car? a plane? drugs!?) and died. Soon after, Apollo made flowers of his lovers blood. Flowers + red wine (blood) + dead woman. OMG.

We've all been duped

By the greatest advertising campaign of all time. And it turns out Mad Men was actually just a commercial for Chevy the ENTIRE TIME.

JK, everyone. Mad Men is one of the best-written shows in television history. I’m sure whatever cockamamey theories are out there will pale in comparison to what the writers have up their sleeves. And. I. Can’t. Wait.
