Are you ready for the next episode of ‘Downton Abbey’? Sadly, you’ll have to wait until Sunday, but to hold you over until then I’m happy to provide a few teasers.
Warning: if you haven’t watched last week’s episode, read no further, unless you want to be spoiled.
Before we dive on in to the scoopy goodness, let’s chat last Sunday’s episode. If you recall, Rose threw Robert a surprise birthday party, which was also full of some scandalous moments thanks to Jack and Rose (no, not Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet). When Mr. Carson wasn’t almost having a heart attack at the sight of Jack Ross at Downton, Mary was busy battling it out with Charles Blake, while Edith received some troubling news -- not only is Michael Gregson MIA, but she’s pregnant with his child! Seriously, when will this girl catch a break?
So, what’s next for the Crawleys and our favorite staff? Let’s find out, but if you don’t like any type of scoop go back downstairs and help Mrs. Patmore prepare dinner.
-Robert journeys to America, and he’s accompanied by a surprising someone.
-Get excited, because this week’s episode finally shows the arrival of the pigs! Also, Mary and Blake “bond” over the animals. And, yes, mud is involved.
-Violet falls ill, which means Isobel goes into her famous medical mode. Let’s just say, someone gets called a “drunken vicar.”
-Branson gets back into politics, and he even meets a certain lady (above) at a political lecture.
-Mr. Carson, Mrs. Hughes and Mrs. Patmore unite in a fun way regarding Ivy, Daisy and Alfred aka “The Downton Heartbreaker.” Basically, they’re The Three Musketeers.
-Edith goes to [SPOILER] about her latest predicament.
-Last, but not least, Mrs. Hughes proves to be a badass and shows just why she’s my favorite this season.
The next episode of ‘Downton Abbey’ airs in the U.S. on Sunday, Feb. 9 at 9/8c on PBS.
