Jon Hamm Hints at Don/Joan Romance
When we last left Mad Men, Don had proposed to Megan and Joan was secretly pregnant with Roger Sterling's baby. Or at least she had been ... I'm not sure. It's been hella long since AMC aired the season four finale, so you'll have to forgive me if the plot points are a bit murky.
But one thing is crystal clear thanks to a new interview with Jon Hamm: Don's relationship with his secretary will be thrown a curve in the form of Joan Holloway.
"The Don/Joan dynamic is something that we do explore [this season], and don't take this the wrong way, but we do explore as the show goes on. They have worked together for a long time, they know one another very well and I'll leave it at that."
I'll give you a minute to pick your brain up off the floor at the thought that season five might feature some Joan/Don action. That would certainly be worth the 17 month wait!
UPDATE! The first teaser for season five was just released and while it, as expected, doesn't give away much, it's just nice to see Don pouring a drink again!
Mad Men premieres March 25 on AMC.
