Today a clip for the upcoming season of Downton was released, and things are not looking good for Lady Mary. Mainly because, you know, SPOILERS.


Season 4 picks up six months after the end of season 3, and it's a grim picture. All I'm saying is, don't expect any musical numbers in the first episode and maybe expect Lady Mary go all The Awakening on us. Hold it together, Mary! You (and your staff of dozens) have lil' George to look after now.

Downton Abbey premieres in the U.K. this Sunday, but we won't get it stateside until January 5. Which is in 2014. Which is not that far away, like sand through an hourglass, OMFGYG how are we in the middle of September already.

Does anyone else feel it's kind of lazy how Downton seems to just kill off anyone who leaves the show or has served their narrative purpose? Can't they come up with more creative and interesting ways to cause the remaining characters pain? The show's turned into a total mourn-fest.

The most ridiculous death of all is still Matthew's fiance, who existed only to delay his hooking up with Mary and went out as a selfless wisp of a character who gave her blessing to their boning.
