'Mad Men' Season 6 Sneak Peek at First Episodes Revealed (PHOTOS)

don draper mad men season 6 premiereCan you believe the Mad Men season 6 premiere is almost here?! This coming Sunday, we'll get to re-enter Don Draper's world and pick up where we left off ... sort of. From the looks of things, although season 5 concluded in the spring of 1967, the cast may be celebrating Christmas in the premiere. We know this not because there's an actual trailer with footage from the new season (that would be too good!), but because AMC has released stills from the premiere. And episode titles and synposes for the first four episodes of the season (well, the first three technically, as the first two make up the two-hour premiere).

Whoo! Even more sweet hints and clues to speculate about. Let's check 'em out, shall we ...

The title of the season premiere and the first two episodes is "The Doorway." Maybe it has something to do with Don reading Dante's Inferno? The doorway to hell?! We also know the episode will take us to Hawaii, where Don is a best man at a soldier's wedding ... There's speculation that this is a soldier who knew him back in his Dick Whitman days. And EW reports that we get to see Megan's acting career taking off. She gets stopped for autographs, but fans also comment on her weight. Hmm. In the meantime, AMC shares, "Don spearheads a new campaign; Roger gets unsettling news; Betty takes in a houseguest." Gotta love how vague they are!

The third episode's title is "The Collaborators," and apparently, "Don has a disagreement with a client; Pete entertains a guest; Peggy tries to motivate the staff." Maybe Peggy's firm and Don's work together? Maybe Alexis Bledel's character is back as Pete's "guest"?! (Doubtful, but I hope so!)

And the fourth is "To Have and to Hold" in which "the partners try to keep a secret campaign under wraps; an old friend visits Joan." I sense of a running theme here of surprise, out-of-the-blue visitors! Kinda seems to tie into what Elisabeth Moss said about how they all feel sort of like they're treading water and finding themselves back in the same place over and over again ...

And while you're contemplating that, some eye candy from Sunday's premiere ...

What are you concluding from these episode titles, synopses, and photos?
