Below Dowager Countess (Maggie Smith) says, “You have a straightforward choice before you: You must choose either death or life.” Who is she speaking to? We can’t tell because we never get a glimpse of the person or a shot in anyway. We can deduce from the words spoken that it’s said to the closest of people to him… Mary. Countess says very important words, you can either shut down and give up or choose to live on for him and you.. only you can make that choice.
As everyone who watches this show, it is clearly known that Matthew dies at the end of season 3. And so we have this dilemma. But from all the stories that have circulated for the past couple months, it’s very easily to deduce that Mary isn’t going to kill herself and the words from Countess are just a note. In my belief, with all the suitors rumors and additional seasons of Mary, it makes this part of the story very hard to care simply because we know that the words from Countess are useless. Although must be said in the show, in reality and us being omniscient, just useless.
As soon as clip is broadcasted, we will place the clip up on here for your viewing pleasure. Also, there have been rumors that the beginning of this season 4 will be somewhere in Mid-September in UK and January in the United States.
