Deep in thought? Feigning amusement? Listening intently? Don Draper is not an easy man to read. Wonder what the Christmas bird behind his shoulder thinks ... Michael Yarish / AMC
Season five closed with Don sitting in a bar as Megan filmed a commercial. He's asked by a pretty lady, "Are you alone?" There was no answer then, but he seems pretty lonesome in this photo from the premiere. Michael Yarish / AMC
Megan gets a tan in the first episode! As paparazzi photos revealed in October, the Drapers head to Hawaii's glorious beaches. Michael Yarish / AMC
Christina Hendricks, who plays Joan, will have a strong story line. "We definitely are exploring the fact that we have seen her all of a sudden become partner and what that means," the actress told us about her character's arc this season. Michael Yarish / AMC
Where's Bert Cooper? (Most of) the main men of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce -- Roger Sterling (John Slattery), Don and Pete Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser) -- gather for a little holiday cheer at the office. Maybe "cheer" is the wrong word to use for frowny Roger. Michael Yarish / AMC
What ... Don worry? The man's certainly got a deep furrow in his brow and a look of concern in his eyes. Wonder what office drama has him upset in the premiere? Michael Yarish / AMC
Looks like Santa gave Pete a new 'do for the season! Check out those sideburns! Michael Yarish / AMC
Don and Betty's daughter Sally (Kiernan Shipka) is a sweet little girl no more, but a young lady. Ron Jaffe / AMC
