Downton Abbey S04E08

Downton Abbey season 4 episode 8 – the ups, the downs and the best Maggie Smith moment

What I loved: Anna opening up to Mary about Mr.Green and Mary finally getting him fired, the ladies teasing Mary about her “desire” of suitors (which is getting a bit crowded!), Branson’s new crush, and the happy family reunion when his lordship got back from America !


What I didn’t love: Alfred proposing to Ivy – why??, Green mysteriously dying as it was obviously Bates, and Jack Ross calling off his engagement to Rose as I’d have loved to see more of them together, but mainly the fact that it was the last episode of the series.

Best Maggie moment: “Rosamund has no interest in French. If she wishes to be understood by a foreigner, she shouts”
