The Baron's daughter is missing, and you are the man to find her. No problem. With your inexhaustible arsenal of hard-boiled similes, there is nothing you can't handle.

He was in a special they did, but not in the actual Christmas special. It's a parody played by the same actors and it's great, you should look it up on Youtube.

Here they are, for those who can't be bothered to look them up themselves.

"I hope you like waking up at 6 a.m. and having your favorite things destroyed. P.S. Forgive me because I'm cuter than that $50 wire I just ate."


So is it Mrs. Hughes or Carson that gets accused of murder next season?

Also, I'm glad they're giving Mary a love interest who can drive this time.

Isobel: I don't want to come between you and your children, and they have written me this letter which says they don't like me.
Lord Elderly: I will never forgive my children for this. Things will never be good between me and my children again.
Isobel: So I can't marry you, because I don't want to come between you and your children.
Lord Elderly: bitch what did i just say

It was really handled in the worst way. Merton was so pissed at that point that he'd have disinherited his sons and left his estate to charity if she married him.

Presumably Violet could have sorted it all out if she wasn't making her staff deathmatch for kicks.

I agree with this. I really like their friendship and how it evolved this season, but I wish it had ended with one of them in a relationship. Isobel's reasons for ending things with that guy who she was obviously still in love with were really contrived and dumb.

The Anna murder storyline was wrapped up in the most unsatisfying, anticlimactic way ever, even by Downton Abbey standards.

The guy that Mary was totally macking on, he was on Boardwalk Empire wasn't he? He looks super familiar. Mary certainly loves her bad boys.

He was just in The Imitation Game (along with Branson). He also played Ozymandias in Watchmen.

I do like this show, but the last season was a little tiring. I binged it all in the last month. I'm glad I'm not the only one who notices how many times they have scenes where the actors say the exact same thing, just with the words a little different. The plotting on this show is so bad.

I'm going to place a bet now that the new love interest is gay.
