    Dowton Abbey

    Has anyone else seen the final episode this week? I was so shocked with the ending. I won't tell you what happened but it really upset me. Wow! Can hardly wait for the next series to start.

    Very sad...I wasn't ready for that kind of ending....when does the new season begin? Do we have to wait for next year?

    If any of you are on pinterest...type in Downton Abbey and you can see all the characters as they are in real life. Make up is amazing. Of course, you could just google it, too.

    I did not like the ending. However, he appears dead but blood is flowing out. If that is the case, I think he is still alive. I have heard that blood stops flowing when the heart stops. Don't know how true that is in all cases. And of course, we don't know how technically accurate the writers are with Downton Abbey either. We will find out at the end of the year when the next seasons starts unless someone in England spills the answer since they see it before we do.

    Dan Stevens, the actor, wanted out, and didn't want to appear even in first episode of season 4, and Julian Fellowes didn't want to recast or have a contrived issue with him being "out" or "away" all the time. At least that's what I've been reading, with interviews and such. So as we say here, Matthew is a "gone pecan". Sad.

    Yes, it was a sad ending. Wonder how the new episodes will start off. Great program with wonderful actors.

    I knew it was coming as the actor announced he would not be back for another season. I didn't see how they had any choice but to kill him. They really couldn't hire a replacement at this point.

    I understand that the writer(s) have promised not to kill off anymore major characters for awhile.
    Since I gain weight reading cookbooks, why can't I lose weight watching a fitness program?

    someone had posted at the Yahoo DA group that they had seen a interview with the actor and he is in deed leaving the show..I had hoped he was still alive too..I hate how they jump over such big parts of time..so who know when they return the funeral etc could be over and done!!

    Sunday was the first time I watched the show. No football, so... Thought the acting was kind of weak and plot silly.
    But know it is popular, so each to his own taste.

    Boy they didn't work too hard putting this years series on! didn't it just start a month ago? I didn't get into it because I didn't watch the other ones and figured I missed too much. All that hype for what maybe 5 episodes?

    I read that both the actors that died this season wanted out of the series next season.

    Saw a funny on FB... It was a cartoon of a PBS big wig holding a revolver up to a script with the caption, "Send your donation NOW or another character on Downton Abbey dies!!"
    "... let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us."

    Read where the character in question refused to resign. Rasberries to him!

    The period dress and hair styles are wonderfully done. Until the show, I didn't realize hair was still long and put up. I thought it was cut short. The first toaster was hoot and I thought curly irons were a 1970's thing. When they showed Mathew in the car and then the truck coming, my son started yelling not the car, not the car. He enjoys seeing the old cars.

    I heard they are going to do a prequel. I wonder how the American and the Earl met.
