**Spoiler** Downton Abbey Season 5 Christmas Special

Downton Abbey Season 5 started earlier in the previous months in the United Kingdom while viewers wait anxiously for the start of the season coming early January. This being said, for those that don’t want any revelations as to what occurs in the Christmas special, please avert your attention elsewhere.

Unlike previous Christmas specials, it seems that the viewers had quite the juicy tidbits to watch this season. With all that has been flying around for the past couple of months, we have just witnessed Mary’s new potential boyfriend. Furthermore, the Earl must fight off an ulcer, Tom says his goodbyes, and Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes get engaged. This is the lick your chops stuff that you have been waiting for, but leaves the viewers with many questions including:
 




 

Is the Earl’s ulcer really an ulcer?

Does Mr. Talbot have a hidden agenda? Is he trying to become more than an acquaintance?

How will Tom Branson fare and will he ever return?

Will Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes have a falling out or will they be together for the long hall?

Many of these questions have been something of much talk since the showing of the Christmas special not long ago. It’s too soon for speculation as most of what has been seen is too recent. No foreshadowing has really allowed anyone to extract information.

But here is the thing, one of the best lines that I have heard this season came from Mrs. Hughes in response to Mr. Carson’s response, “Of course I’ll marry you, you old booby.” Downton Abbey was trending¬† and #youoldbooby immediately following the episode. After already buying her and him a house, he replied, “take your time, but I am not marrying anyone else.”

Upwards of 10 million viewers hearts melted. There is a lot to think about here and with more questions than answers, you know the show is only going to get hotter! What will happen to the Earl?

 

**Spoiler** Downton Abbey Christmas Special – George Clooney Confirmed

It has been confirmed that George Clooney, star of Gravity, will be showing up in season 5 Christmas Special Entertainment Stars state. For months, we have seen George Clooney’s name hit the spotlight with mentions of Downton Abbey, but more or less had to do with either getting married or taking on another short film harboring him at Downton.

Clooney was determined not to allow a leakage prior to the season airing, but unfortunately, not everything nowadays can stay secret with social media. He forced the cast and crew to keep this little known secret as well. That being said, It has been confirmed that George Clooney has acted out all his lines for a wedding that will occur during the Christmas Special.

But what does this mean if George Clooney is starring in wedding scenes for the Christmas Special, who is getting married. Well it seems that Lady Mary in this season will have her mind made up. Supposedly, by all accounts, she will be taking this individual on a “dirty weekend.” Will this Christmas Special be all about the new marriage between Lady Mary and either Blake or Gillingham. It seems quite promising.

Season 5 of Downton starts in not a so good light Joanne Froggatt tells Enstarz! New Episodes of Downton Abbey Season 5 starts the 21st of September 9:00 PM on ITV1 or ITV1 HD.
 


Downton Abbey Seasson 5 – Winter Christmas Special

The Christmas Special for Downton Abbey on ITV has changed this year as it has moved physical location from Highclere castle to Alnwick castle. Alnwick castle as you know was used for the Harry Potter series. They have embellished the castle using artificial snow.

The period drama is being shot in the middle of August and the video can be seen here, shows Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary) and Laura Carmichael (Lady Edith) taking a stroll down the side of the castle and river. The downton crew have made the entire landscape a snowy pasture all around Nothumberland.

That being said, Laura Carmichael speaks out about her character, Lady Edith. Speaking to “Hit Fix,” she states that no one really knows where Edith will be. She explains that her child is in the country without her and Gregson is no where to be found. The family doesn’t really know. Furthermore, she says that she won’t really be getting sympathy from the family. Lady Edith’s emotions and mental health will be all over the place. Her character is someone to really focus on as she is a psychological mess. She really has placed herself in this situation and I believe this is a slippery slope for her.

It seems that Lady Mary will soon pick between her two very handsome suitors, which has been proposed by venture capital posts. These two suitors to recall are Lord Gillingham (Tom Cullen) and Lord Blake (Julian Ovenden). Although she is still unsure, hints in season 5 might shed light on who is going to win that prized possession.
