Now this is one for the best legal minds in the country to figure out. In NEW YORK Magazine, Adam Raymond asks the question: What could Don Draper die of on "Mad Men?"
At first that seems too crazy to happen, even at the end of the series. Draper must live on in the global memory bank forever. Then it dawned on me that "Breaking Bad" killed off the equally complex Gus.
One obvious way Draper could die is from lung cancer. Although Lucky Strike left as a client, he might be smoking them. So, lawyers will have to ponder if Megan does marry him, will she be aware enough to sue the maker of Lucky Strike for his death. What did the scientific community know about the contents of cigarettes at that time? Was the company aware of possible dangers of long term smoking?
Of course, Draper could also go out the window. His level of self hate is extraordinary.
