Cora Crawley is beyond right to blame her dolt of a husband, Robert, for the unnecessary death of Downton’s most beloved character.
Cora Crawley experienced an earth-shattering tragedy on last night, Jan. 27’s episode of Downton Abbey. Just at a time that should have been full of happiness — her daughter Sybil is expecting a baby and the family’s estate has been saved by Matthew Crawley’s inheritance — there is an unexpected death and Robert is to blame!
The Crawley family was changed forever, as the show’s most dramatic season yet took another dark turn.
On the Jan. 27 episode of Downton Abbey, Anna (Joanne Froggatt) discovered a way to prove Bates’ innocence, Edith (Laura Carmichael) finally found a small amount of self-worth, and Sybil (Jessica Brown Findlay) gave birth to a perfectly healthy baby girl. But wait, this is Downton Abbey, right? Cue the unexpected, horrific tragedy…

The rebellious couple returned to ‘Downton Abbey’ on Jan. 20 with the fuzz hot on their trail!
Tom (Allen Leech) may be a beautifully wrapped package, but sometimes I wonder if the box isn’t completely empty. He arrived at Downton this week, all wet — I know what I said, let’s move on — and all alone. The police believed him to be an instigator of a rebellion, so he fled Ireland and left Sybil (Jessica Brown Findlay) behind. Yes, pregnant Sybil. God, how could someone who looks so good in a nightshirt be so stupid?!

Prince Will-who? Kate Middle-what? The Crawleys threw the wedding of the millenium on the long-awaited season premiere. Tears were shed. Shade was thrown.
Oh, Downton Abbey, how we’ve missed you. The show’s Jan. 6 season premiere brought back the entire Crawley clan — along with a super-sassy Shirley MacLaine as Cora’s mother — for a wedding event full of tears, drama, and of course, bitchy old-world asides from Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess. (“An aristocrat without servants is as useful to the county as a glass hammer.”)

Downton Abbey fans’ dreams for the future were shattered when Dan Stevens confirmed he wouldn’t be returning to the show for its fourth season, thus leaving Michelle Dockery‘s Mary without her other half. Dan’s final appearance on the show aired Dec. 25 in the UK, and broadcaster ITV released a super spoiler-y press release about his departure the following day.
Julian Fellowes says he wants to write a book about ‘the courtship of Robert & Cora.’ Will you read it?
If you think Robert (Hugh Bonneville) and Cora (Elizabeth McGovern) have too much drama in their lives now, just wait until you find out how they got together! Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes recently revealed plans to write a prequel to his hit series, focusing on the origin of Robert and Cora’s relationship. “They had a slightly troubled courtship,” Julian admits. “He was in love with him before they married, as we know, and he married her entirely for her money.”
Plus, it sounds like Thomas will finally get some action in season three! Who’s the lucky guy?
Wedding bells are ringing at Downton Abbey — but before Matthew (Dan Stevens) and Mary (Michelle Dockery) say “I do,” they’re dishing out major spoilers about their big day!

David tweeted that he’d love to be on the popular PBS series — and he couldn’t be more perfect for the role!
In the season two finale of Downton Abbey, the Earl of Grantham (Hugh Bonneville) reveals to his daughter Lady Mary Crawley (Michelle Dockery) that he knows she slept with the Turkish ambassador way back in season one, and he doesn’t care if the revelation ruins the family. He suggests to Mary that she go visit her grandmother in America to find herself a cowboy from the “middle west” to “shake things up” at Downton while the scandal dies down. Although it’s unclear if Mary will actually go to America now that she’s engaged to Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens) (yes, they are related — but distantly), one actor hopes she does. David Boreanaz tweeted after watching the show that he wants to throw his hat in the ring for the part.
