Weekend Preview: Where Is Don Going On ‘Mad Men’?


Mad Men
(AMC, Sunday 10:00 p.m.) — WHERE DON GOIN’?! This is the second to last episode, so some questions need to start getting answered. There are people with real money riding on if Don goes to California to get killed by Charles Manson, if he’s going to Portland to get his D.B. Cooper money, if he’s going to jump out of a window and land on Pete as he’s inexplicably being chased through the streets of New York by an escaped zoo bear, if he and Sal will finally rendezvous, etc. This stuff matters, Matt. Don’t just give us more rollerskating to organ music (though that was lovely, please give us more of that, as well).

Game of Thrones (HBO, Sunday 9:00 p.m.) — Theon continues to be toyed with by Ramsay while Sansa ponders why she’s catnip for sadists and Dany has to make a decision after the events of last week. Also, Brienne and Poddrick action.

Grimm (NBC, Friday 8:00 p.m.) — Nick and Hank get closer to finding out who the serial killer is. If this is some kind of NBC tie-in with Aquarius, I will be so cheesed.

NBA Playoffs (ESPN and ABC, various nights and times) — The Bulls come home to take on LeBron, his headband, and the Cavs with a 1-1 series tie on ESPN Friday at 8 p.m., and the Rockets take on the Clippers on ESPN Friday at 10:30 p.m.

On Saturday, the Hawks battle the Wizards in a 5 p.m. showdown on ABC that I would like to see replicated with actual Hawks and Wizards, and the Warriors play on a beautiful hardwood floor against the Grizzlies of Memphis at 8:15 p.m. on ABC.

On Sunday, the Bulls and Cavs go at it again at 3:30 p.m. on ABC.

Orphan Black (BBC America, Saturday 9:00 p.m.) — Sarah helps Mark, but also may be within the grasp of a known enemy.

Saturday Night Live (NBC, Saturday 11:35 p.m.) — Reese Witherspoon hosts and Florence + the Machine = the musical guest. You’re welcome.

HBO Comedies (Sunday, 10:00-11:00 p.m.) — Jared and Richard become roommates on Silicon Valley, and Selina tries to avoid a huge scandal at the convention on Veep.

LATE NIGHT GUESTS: Ray Romano, Brian Regan, and The Dave Matthews Band on Letterman, and U2 shows up on Fallon.
