What Is This ‘Mad Men’ Season 6 Party All About Anyway?

Mad Men isn’t exactly what you would call a “good time” show. Sure, there are plenty of social gatherings, but whenever there is a party it always ends with disaster. (Remember last season when Sally Draper discovered her “date” Roger Sterling in a rather compromising position?) So it’s curious that the gallery images AMC is releasing before the show’s hotly anticipated Season 6 premiere on April 7 are of the entire crew at some sort of gala, pretending like they actually like each other. 

Since we’re not going to get any details about the new season before the episodes start, I thought I’d take a crack at figuring out what everyone was thinking and how that might impact the plot that we’re going to see. Fake spoiler alert!
