Reality has struck and Julian Fellowes is playing that somber violin all the way to the end. Recently, Downton Abbey released the final trailer for Downton Abbey and those that have seen it needed some tissues and Ben and Jerry’s double fudge chocolate ice cream… because it was going to get messy.
With fans in the United States unable to watch the season finale until January 3rd, the anticipation with which the season will unfold is palpable. Voices re-emerge and speak strong and silent truthes, the reminescent images come streaming to the forefront as memories live once again. Julian Fellowes makes a strong attempt to proclaim his message through the art of which he is proudly known for. That message is that the past created a life they all know to the present and they must use that creation for where they head into the future. Do not be sad, but be glad that you were able to live and grow in that moment.
While we are sad the show is coming to and end, rellish in the moments, harness it, and use it into the future. Without further ado, your motion picture awaits. The 1-minute video below.
The final season airs September 20, 2015 on ITV in the UK.
The Dowager Countess, Violet Crawley (played by the none other Maggie Smith) brings her A-game in this 20 second Downton Abbey Season 5 trailer. With all that is being talked and joked about, it seems that Violet has quite the sassy mind. Isobel Crawley takes Violet’s simple comment to an over the top height, making the short clip rather amusing.
In the clip, it’s clear that Isobel is worried about her relationship with a man and violet is trying to explain to her only what a man wants. Let’s just say Isobel went straight towards the gutter.
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.
