In Season 1, it was department store heiress Rachel Menken Katz. In Season 2 (the season that isn’t very good), it was Bobbie Barrett, the wife and manager of the comedian. And, of course, last season, it was Dr. Faye Miller. It’s a fact: Don Draper, whose creator is one Matthew Weiner, has a thing for Jewish women (and who could blame him!). So which, or which type, will Draper bed this season, which begins Sunday evening on AMC?

5:1 A proto-hippie chick with a conspicuously Jewish name (it is 1966).

7:1 Jane Siegel-Sterling.

10:1 Gloria Steinem.

12:1 An Israeli.

15:1 Rachel Menken Katz again.

20:1 Felicia Cohn Montealegre, a.k.a. Mrs. Leonard Bernstein.

25:1 A character not-so-loosely based on Barbra Streisand.

35:1 A character not-so-loosely based on Susan Sontag.

100:1 None: after all, he’s a happily married man again!

500:1 Foreign Minister Golda Meir.
