Downton Abbey Season 5 Episode 1 Recap

For those of our United States audience that missed the series 5 opener last night, well, you missed some succulent clips. Yesterday January 4th, Downton Abbey Season 5 amped up once again in the United States to give the viewers the fix they have been craving.
 
The episode opens with Lady Edith on her way to visit her daughter, who she had out of wedlock, Marigold. She left Marigold with a farmer Tim Drewe and told him a lie that he very well knew. Not being a problem, Tim made it quite apparent that Edith should probably take a little more interest in her child and eventually adopt her. Not sure if that will ever come to pass seeing she did have premarital sex and to place the cherry on top, did have Marigold out of that occurrence.
 




 
We turn to Lady Mary, times are changing and the last time we met her she was being tugged between Charles Blake and Tony Gillingham. It seems that in this episode, Tony has come back for personal reasons and does make an entrance at Robert and Cora’s 34th anniversary. Mary explains to Tony that she loves him and without much hesitation (behind closed doors) he asks her to spend time together as each others lovers for a week. Which is kind of funny seeing Mary just had this secret conversation.
 
Lastly, we see little Jimmy bringing the heat. It seems the widower, Lady Anstruther, has a little something for the footman. When her care mysteriously breaks down in front of Downton, we can only guess what happens next. They are found by Richard boots up in bed. They were caught when a fire broke out and Richard was going room to room. As a result, Jimmy is fired because it was unprofessional. And the fact that we are in a period in which looking at women in certain full length clothing is scandalous.

**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?

 

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.

Series Starts Filming in Oxfordshire

Most of the fans of Downton Abbey like I have been impatiently waiting for the next installment and filming of the next series. Well the cast have been spotted outside Oxfordshire making there new season of Downton Abbey. Pictures have been taken of Michelle Dockery (plays Lady Mary) and Lord Gillingham and Charles Blake.

From many of the pictures placed up in line and the facial expressions made. Reading the body language and the acting on set, it seems to me that the suitor is that of Charles Blake. Slowly Mary is starting to open up, but I don’t think we will see a sharp interest until mid-season.

We are in the down stretched for the 5th season of Downton Abbey and I know you all can barely wait until its arrival. I will take it upon myself to scour the internet and the magazines to find the newest pieces of information for those of you to feast away at.


It also seems that Tom Branson, whom is arguably one of the more favorite characters on the show, whom also lost his wife a couple years ago is starting to make a rebound and might have found a little someone by the name of Sarah Bunting. There are pictures of them during the shoot in which he is showing a little flirtatious behavior. Like a gentlemen, some of the pictures shows his beautiful smile while he removes that hat from his head.

I’m expecting a lot to happen in season 5 so get ready!

 

 

 

Release soon of first scene Dowager Countess (Maggie Smith)

Season 4 Preview

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.
