Mad Men creator has end in mind

Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner has revealed plans for the end of the show, saying he has a final “image” in mind.  “I always felt like it would be the experience of human life,” he said. “And human life has a destination. It doesn’t mean Don’s going to die. What I’m looking for, and how I hope to end the show, is like… It’s 2011. Don Draper would be 84 right now. I want to leave the show in a place where you have an idea of what it meant and how it’s related to you.”
