Can it really already be almost the end of February? Time flies when you're obsessed with Downton Abbey, are we right? This week's episode on Sunday, February 16, is the second-to-last installment before the end of Season 4. If only we could turn back time...
With the end of the season so close at hand, expect loads of drama in the episodes to come (remember, the February 23 episode is a lengthy two hours!). For tonight's one-hour show, there will be a few interesting developments and one major piece of news. We can tell you all about it seeing as we watched the episode back when it first aired in the U.K. last year.
If you'd like a quick refresh on what happened last week before you dive into a new round of spoilers, we've got all the details from the February 9 show or, if you're only in the mood for minimal spoilage, check out this brief summary. We've also got a real blast from the past with a Season 3 summary, which, we know, kinda feels like ancient history at this point.
Too much information to properly process? Need just a quick peek at what to expect at 9 p.m. on PBS? Then keep on reading. We've kept out any huge reveals but still hint at what Julian Fellowes has for us tonight. So on that note, get ready, get set, get reading!
Tonight we say hello to a few familiar faces and goodbye to a couple others, and one of those goodbyes is of the permanent variety. The Abbey is hosting the annual spring bazaar, which has the Crawley family in a tizzy as they get the final preparations ready.
Amid the hustle and bustle, Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael) makes a decision for herself and her unborn child, while Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) continues to wrestle with pigs. JK, wrestle with what she wants out of life. Brother-in-law Tom Branson (Allen Leech) also has an interesting development in his own love life and Scottish lass Rose MacClare (Lily James) plans a big change for hers.
What do you think of Season 4? Can't believe there's only one episode left after this one? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
