Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner didn’t consider the power of the internet to immediately connect dots, freak out, and assume that because Megan Draper (Jessica Paré) wore the same T-shirt on the show as Sharon Tate had during a 1967 photo shoot, Megan’s character might reach a tragic end along the same lines as Tate’s. As Weiner explained during a roundtable discussion with the L.A. Times, all he wanted, really, was for Megan to wear any t-shirt!

“I always wanted Megan in a Disneyland T-shirt and [costume designer Janie Bryant] kept saying, ‘They’re not around yet.’ So I said, ‘There’s got to be a women’s T-shirt,’ and Janie brought [the photo of Tate] in and asked, ‘Is this okay?’ And I said, ‘Yes. I want that exact T-shirt.’ Little did I know…”

No one else is about to die on Mad Men. At least… not this season. “I didn’t say never!” laughed Weiner.
