Matt Weiner, the creator of AMC's 'Mad Men,' has revealed some juicy information about the rest of the show's sixth season. If you do not want to know what it is, please stop reading.
Weiner has gone on record saying that Megan Draper (played by Jessica Pare) is not Sharon Tate and that no one is going to die this season.
"It’s just not part of the show. No one’s going to die," he said after Elizabeth Moss (Peggy) revealed that the conspiracy theorists were "barking up the wrong tree."
That does not mean that no one will ever die on the show - "I didn’t say never!" he added.
The t-shirt which led some to believe that Megan was a goner is not quite as significant as some believed, according to Weiner.
"Yes, Sharon Tate wore that t-shirt, but that was just my costume designer Janie Bryant and I solving an argument," he said. "Women's t-shirts had not come into fashion. I always wanted Megan in a Disneyland t-shirt and Janie kept saying, 'They're not around yet.' So I said, 'There's got to be a women's t-shirt,' and Janie brought [the photo of Tate] in and asked, 'Is this OK?' And I said, 'Yes. I want that exact t-shirt.' Little did I know ..."
Of course, on Twitter after the scene aired, a viewer asked Bryant about the t-shirt and she said it was "no coincidence" that she was wearing a shirt similar to what Tate wore...hmm...
For her part, Pare did not really put out the conspiracy fire.
"I think that was the idea in finding that t-shirt -- something that we had a reference that somebody had worn at the time," she said. "And if there was any significance beyond that, I don't know, you'd have to ask Matt."
Our own Sam McPherson addressed some of the conspiracy theories earlier this season. What do you think?
'Mad Men' airs on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on AMC.
