  1. Is there a way to click through these without having to go back to the post to select each one? Thanks.
    And — where is Joan’s baby??? Is this after it’s born — or what? I NEED TO KNOW!!!! Six more days.

    • These are press kit pictures, they are not stills from episodes, so you can’t draw any conclusions from them.

      Right click and choose “open in new tab/window.”

      • ? Why no Jessica Pare??? Betty is not in these pictures,presumably because she didn’t work in the office, but Megan did.

      • Yes but. Surely in Matt Weiner-Hyper-About-Continuity-Land, if Joan is pregnant on the show, she’d be pregnant in the stills? I haven’t done the math about months because I don’t feel like I know the month we ended in S4 ore where S5 will pick up.
        She sure looks good, though!

        • Matt’s not going to give away anything plot-related in the press photos. I don’t think you should read anything at all into these photos. There may be an overall theme, and if there is I can’t tell, but otherwise, you’re not going to learn much from what Matt allows us to see.

  2. Joan’s appearance is a clue to the setting of S5. She was about 3mos along with S4 ended. Add 6 mos until birth, then about 2 mos maternity leave and maybe another month or so to fully regain her figure. Add it up, and we are in summer 1966.

    • Please remember these are PRESS photos. Look at this S4 press photo: http://www.madmensecret.com/ and note that none of these dresses appeared during S4.

      Roberta is absolutely correct. Plus…keep in mind as you do your timeline, that “maternity leave” did not exist back then. Women either left the workforce after having a baby, or they went without pay after any sick leave or vacation time was used up – or they came right back to work if they could get someone to watch the baby. And of course how fast a woman gets back (if ever) to her pre-baby figure can vary dramatically from woman to woman. so Matt still has us guessing…

  3. The one joy I did not expect is the return of Stan Rizzo. I shall celebrate by wearing a knit shirt.
