Here’s Everything Matt Weiner Wanted to Get Into the ‘Mad Men’ Finale But Couldn’t

+

If you weren’t entirely satisfied with all of the plot points and themes the show introduced over its magnificent run being tied off in the generally excellent Mad Men series finale, turns out you’re not alone. Series creator Matt Weiner had a lengthy list of things he wanted to see addressed himself, but, either because of space considerations, or creative ones, was never able to get back in.

The show-runner shared his grocery list of plot points he wanted to cover this season at a Writer’s Guild Foundation panel, which was shared by Entertainment Weekly reporter Anthony Breznican. (h/t Slate)

Probably most glaring on that list for a lot of people is the fate of one Sal Romano, the long lost fan favorite, unceremoniously dispatched with in season 3. Other character items, like Harry’s divorce, and the whereabouts of Lee Garner Jr. also untouched, as do larger themes, like the gun and television industries and Wall Street.
