Celebrities Predict 'Mad Men' Finale, From Elizabeth Banks To 'Game Of Thrones' Emilia Clarke
It's time to say goodbye to Don Draper, Peggy Olson, Joan Holloway, and all the other beloved Mad Men characters we've gotten to know over the past seven seasons. Everyone seems to have their theories on how the critically acclaimed AMC series will end its storied run on Sunday night — Was it all a dream? Will Don die? Will everyone die? — including celebrities. The Hollywood Reporter compiled a bunch of celeb Mad Men finale theories into one handy video, which includes thoughts on the show's end from Pitch Perfect 2 director and star Elizabeth Banks, Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke, The Mindy Project's Ike Barinholtz, The Affair's Maura Tierney, The Big Bang Theory's Melissa Rauch, and more.
The video compilation of interviews intersperses clips of classic Mad Men scenes to get you super psyched — or sad — about the show's final episode. "I hope Joan and Peggy just blow the f--king place up," Banks told The Hollywood Reporter in the video, followed by a laugh. "It'll be like bye-bye bitches!" She continued her humorous theory later in the interview. "Don Draper's probably going to die. Something's going to go wrong... He probably has like 12 STDs and they're all going to come to fruition. That's what I'm assuming. It's all going to just eat his body away."
Clarke envisioned a more positive end for Don. "I cannot wait for the last final, final bit of Mad Men," Clarke said. "Don Draper taking over the world, maybe that's how it should end?" Sounds like he and Daenerys should team up for world domination (with dragons).
There's also a bit of discussion about the silhouette of Don Draper falling in the Mad Men opening credits — could that be a clue to the show's final moments? Barinholtz thought so. "Don Draper jumps out the window in the last scene and is falling and he falls on top of John Slattery [who plays Roger Sterling]," he theorized.
Rauch is just looking forward to watching the finale. "I honestly have no idea what they'll do, but I'm very excited to see it," she said. I think that's generally how we all feel, isn't it?
