“Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner is famously spoiler-averse, so much so that the show’s “next on” teasers have become all but inscrutable — a string of quick-cut non-sequiturs that say next to nothing about the next week’s episode, except that often someone is telling someone else to shut the door or sit down.
