Downton Abbey Season 3: Back to Downton

It’s back! As you may know, Downton Abbey Season 3 premiered in the UK on ITV. But as most of us stateside won’t get to see it until 2013 on PBS, I’ll keep this spoiler-free. Here are a few things that I can tell you about the much-anticipated.

  • It revolves around Matthew & Mary’s wedding, but everything doesn’t go smoothly
  • Cora’s mother makes another American to Downton
  • Sybil and Tom keep things interesting, but will they make it to the wedding?
  • A new member of the staff shakes things up downstairs
  • Robert and Matthew both get hit with some news that’s hard to swallow
  • Daisy isn’t happy with the status quo and makes it known
  • Edith isn’t giving up on an old flame

That’s all I’ll give you for now. But I will be writing a full review of the episode, so if you’re determined to remain un-spoiled, avoid the Downton Abbey tag for the next few months! And I will say that the Season 3 premiere made me so happy to be back at Downton. It’s as marvelous as ever.

She likes comic books, photography, reading on the Metro bus and wearing cold weather clothes despite the actual temperature in Southern California.
