The first images from Mad Men season 7, premiering April 13, have been released. Although a tight-lipped Matthew Weiner has kept pretty much all plot points under lock and key, we can infer a few things from these pictures.

Don is still angsty:

Don still smokes (see right hand):

And he still has a relationship with California — whether he lives there or not is unknown — considering that the photos were taken outside the Algonquin Hotel in Los Angeles. His marital status, even the year, is still unknown.

Other images show Don with Jim Cutler (Harry Hamlin), a once rival and now senior partner at the merged Sterling Cooper and Partners.


Happy to see the comment about the Algonquin. I hadn't remembered an Alogonquin in LA. And it does not appear that a hotel by that name has ever existed there.

Writer must have been California dreamin', or maybe he just hasn't spent much(any) time in NYC.

Love Don Draper, either coast. Too bad he's going to die of lung cancer when he's 50.

The Algonquin hotel is in Manhattan. Though filmed on set in Los Angeles, this is standing in for New York. Don is not in California.
