Watch two brand-new videos for your first look at the drama to come on ‘Downton Abbey.’

Two new Downton Abbey trailers hit the web this week — one from British broadcaster ITV, and another from PBS — and they both reveal some wild surprises from the show’s upcoming third season, including a new forbidden romance for Thomas (Rob James-Collier), who apparently does have emotions under all those layers of evil.

Thomas, whose gay story line was more or less swept under the rug after the first few episodes of the show, is seen spying on new footman Jimmy (Ed Speleers) as he strips down to his birthday suit. But before you go celebrating Downton’s newest couple, it’s also worth noting that Thomas is later seen crying. So that probably won’t end well.

But Thomas isn’t the only one getting weepy! Lord Crawley (Hugh Bonneville) and Matthew (Dan Stevens) are also seen in various states of distress, while Bates (Brendan Coyle) shows off his darker side by getting physical with a man in an alley.

Never a dull moment at Downton!

Watch both new trailers below, then drop a comment with your hopes and predictions for season three:
