'Mad Men': The live-tweet replay

"Mad Men" returns Sunday night at 10 for the first of its final seven episodes. It's the beginning of the end for the critically acclaimed, game-changing show that began in 2007.

"There are new mustaches in town. There are new patterns in the clothes and wallpaper," Times television critic Robert Lloyd writes of tonight's episode, "Severance." Still, even as "life is progressing," says Lloyd, "it is cycling back to the beginning."

We live-tweeted the episode. Meredith Blake and Stephen Battaglio got things started on the East Coast. (And in case you missed it, you must read Blake's fascinating look at the women of "Mad Men".) Three hours later, we returned with Lloyd, Company Town reporter Saba Hamedy and Arts and Entertainment editor Laurie Ochoa. Plus, we brought in some of our favorite tweets from around the web.
