Chat with Matthew Weiner these days and you feel the added depth of his "Mad Men" immersion.When its bifurcated final season begins Sunday at 10 p.m. EDT on AMC (with seven episodes, to be followed by seven more next year), the second of those final hours will be shooting, while the fifth of seven final scripts will be taking shape on the page.Weiner, as the auteur of this landmark drama series, voices both resolve and wonderment at his task of bringing "Mad Men" in for a landing.Weiner has said many times he hit upon some semblance of that "fitting end" several years ago.Indeed, there have been signals that Don, swamped by painful recognition, is braced to take corrective action.Last season's fade-out found the man who, at the series' start was fiercely guarded about his past, coming clean to his three kids: Don stood with them outside the former whorehouse where he, born Dick Whitman, was raised as an orphan.That the episode, written by Weiner, is richly satisfying.That the series seems headed confidently down its home stretch.As Weiner hoped, it helped get the show noticed -- and still does.
