PREVIEW: Downton Abbey “Season 2: Episode 5”

After a pretty depressing episode last week on DOWNTON ABBEY, I bet you’re hoping for a “happy ending” this week? I don’t want to give away too much but I don’t think it’s quite time to put away your tissues.

This week’s episode features a surprise in the family that’s bound to change things for Matthew. Plus, a special guest arrives to complicate Mary’s life. And things aren’t getting any easier for Ethel who’s in quiet a predicament. (Sidenote: Mary has the most wonderful dresses this week.)

Here’s a short preview AND a scene from the episode if you fancy that kind of thing.

Heather is a recent West Coast transplant and can't remember what humidity feels like. She spends most of her time (& money) watching movies, marathoning TV shows on DVD, attending concerts, reading, eating vegetables, attending conventions (San Diego Comic-Con, New York Comic Con, Dragon*Con so far!), blogging about her quarter-life crisis, downing coffee and traveling the world. She likes comic books, photography, reading on the Metro bus and wearing cold weather clothes despite the actual temperature in Southern California.
