Megan, "Mad Men"
Likelihood of Death: 1%
All of last season, strange corners of the Internet kept trying to perpetuate the idea that Megan was actually Sharon Tate or, at the very least, a Sharon Tate stand-in and that "Mad Men" had all along been building up to a recreation of the Tate/LaBianca murders with its very own Charles Manson lurking in the corner somewhere like the killer from "Too Man Cooks." Those same cyber-corners also used key art to prove that Don Draper was really DB Cooper, as if Matt Weiner has been building up to these grand fictional/historical blurrings this whole time. Barf.
Why They Might Survive: Megan survived last season and, looking at her position in the MadMenoverse if she's in Los Angeles and Don's in New York and they're no longer a couple, there isn't necessarily any reason why we'd need to see Megan at all in the final seven episodes. And even if we do see Megan, have y'all met Matt Weiner? Even if he'd planned on Megan being butchered by Charles Manson from the earliest stages of the first season, if he heard the Internet had cracked his brilliant code, he'd scrap the whole thing just to avoid looking predictable. My hunch is that if Megan ever had been on a Sharon Tate-y path -- and I don't believe for a second that she ever was -- she isn't anymore.
