As we all know, there are some strange theories out there about the latest season of AMC's "Mad Men." One of the most prominently talked about plotline theories is that Megan Draper's life on the show will play out like that of Sharon Tate's. Tate, of course, was married to Roman Polanksi and then brutally murdered by followers of Charles Manson while pregnant. It is a crazy real-life story that seems to be developing in "Mad Men." Whether specific outfits and references are intentional, nobody from the "Mad Men" group has addressed the rumors. A little over a week ago, the actress who portrays Megan Draper, Jessica Pare, sat down with Esquire Magazine and admitted she knew nothing about this theory. And now, creator Matthew Weiner (along with the show's leading actresses) has come out and addressed this rumor in round table discussion earlier this week hosted by The Envelope.

"I don't want to spoil anything for people, but after Lane ..." Weiner began, referring to the suicide of the character Lane Pryce from a previous season.

"They're barking up the wrong tree," Elisabeth Moss, who portrays Peggy Olson on the series, added.

"It's just not part of the show. No one's going to die," Weiner revealed, to which Pare released a sigh of relief, followed by, "Thank God!"

"This season," Weiner laughingly added. "I didn't say never!"

But when given the evidence that supports the theory, even actress Moss admitted to seeing the parallels. But Weiner cleared the air.

"Yes, Sharon Tate wore that T-shirt, but that was just my costume designer Janie Bryant and I solving an argument," Weiner explained. "Women's T-shirts had not come into fashion. I always wanted Megan in a Disneyland T-shirt and Janie 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 OK?' And I said, 'Yes. I want that exact T-shirt.' Little did I know ..."

So put those theories out of your head, you guys. Weiner is not trying to kill anyone off this season!
