Add another notch to the 'Mad Men' victim tally. On Sunday's episode, "The Runaways," Michael Ginsberg suffers a psychotic breakdown and slashes his nipple off, as a grand romantic gesture for Peggy. Sympathy pains never felt so real. While he managed to escape the toxic SC&P offices alive, Ginsy didn't leave completely unscathed - or in one piece, for that matter. He was wheeled off to a psychiatric ward. And with the infamous psychiatric care of the 1960s, one question races through the minds: Is there a "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" treatment in store for Ginsy?

Your beloved Midweek Madness featurette is a day late on purpose, so it could burst forth in rhapsodic song, with pastel lighting and silly choreography (not to mention thoughts "wholesome or un-") to mark the first day of "The Lusty Month of May. " After the wretched rains that had the very earth moving in Baltimore as April finally ended, we're just hoping for The Dry Month of May. Feel free to sing and dance along with Vanessa Redgrave and company. "Go blissfully astray," too, if you like.

Don hit restart, but thankfully not replay. “Field Trip” skillfully revealed the answers we had been waiting for since the end of Season 6: How will Don get his job back? And when will Megan find out? In traditional "Mad Men" fashion, of course, any win comes with heavy losses. Don returns to work, and Megan's done with their marriage. Like a true 12-stepper, Don accepts that he's no longer in control. The panning back and forth, between his mental preparation at his apartment as he's staring at his watch and walking down the SC&P hallway, amplified his anxiety and ours.

I have a feeling "Mad Men" is not going to end so happily for some of its fans. I say that after watching Sunday night's opener of the final season and hearing creator Matthew Weiner talk about where the series is going in its last 14 episodes. Before the final credits tonight, viewers will see one of the two characters who matters most, Don Draper (Jon Hamm), near spiritual paralysis, and the other, Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss), brought to her knees in emotional pain. You'll hear Don saying things like, "She knows I'm a terrible husband … I really thought I could do it this time … I keep wondering, 'Have I broken the vessel?

Don's on the mend. Sort of. It was an admittedly slow yet steady start to the new season. That's how it should be with recovery. There was no jumping into massive transformations or profound moments of clarity. It was more of a catch-up to see how the dust has settled - or kicked up - in the past two months (in "Mad Men" time, of course). Are Don and Megan still together? Have SC&P rehired Don? Are Peggy and Joan this close to starting their firm to prove those chauvinists wrong?

Back from Tribal Council, Spencer is trying to hold it together, but he's basically seen all his plans and schemes go down in flames because Kass couldn't stand Sarah. Spencer can't listen to her talk about strategy, because she's playing with her emotions and she's just lucky that it's worked out in her favor so far. The next day, with Sarah gone, Kass needs someone else to hate, and it looks like Morgan is it. She very passive-aggressively, and then just aggressive-aggressively says that Morgan doesn't do anything to help around camp.

The death of Mickey Rooney has your Midweek Madness provider feeling nostalgic -- and grateful that the late star left behind a fine enough overall body of work to make up for his hideous impersonation of a Japanese character in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (talk about mad). One of my favorite Mickey moments is "Treat Me Rough" from the 1943 film musical "Girl Crazy. " (That's June Allyson, making her film debut, at the start of the number.) I think this is just the thing for a little midweek diversion, don't you?

Having had such a marvelous time the other night at "Brief Encounter," your Midweek Madness provider remains in a Noel Coward-y mood, which explains this clip of the divine Mr. Coward recounting a marvelous time of his own.
