    So what do you think?

    Just watched last episode of downton......I'm thinking when all is said and done Mary will end up with her widowed brother-in-law? They seem to be drawing closer......

    Interesting idea! I don't think, tho, that Mary would think he was good enough for her! I'm glad that Edith has a nice prospect. And I sure hope that the Bates' baby comes through ok!

    I am going to really miss this show. Mary made a comment to Tom about not "marrying down" and that made me wonder if a zinger would come later with them hooking up. I just can't see her with the race car driver.

    Yes she did say that, but his answer to her statement was spot on...maybe she will realize that her "way of thinking" is no longer the norm in their world. Oh, who knows, just a thought I had. I did have to giggle when Carson commented to Cook about helping his wife "brush up" on her kitchen skills...honeymoon over!

    Interesting speculations. I've already seen the whole thing and I'm not saying a word.

    I believe you can get each year separately. I don't know if they have a whole set deal. I thing it's offered through PBS.

    I don't know if it will happen our not, Lady Mary and Tom getting together, but I hope they do. I think he can keep her grounded.

    They do seem to be pairing up everyone. I think they will hint at it happening, but not happen. Just my thought.

    I agree with Polly that Mary would never consider her brother-in-law as good enough but when you think about it she didn't think Matthew was good enough for her either at the beginning. Stranger things have happened. I pre-ordered Season 6 an its supposed to be delivered today but due to the white-out blizzard we're having I doubt if they will venture out for deliveries, maybe tomorrow I'll receive it.

    I received season 6 last week and have watched it all- not going to spoil it for you though. I must say that I loved this series and wish there were more quality programs like this available to watch. The Dowager Countess sure has some zingers !!

    I didn't start watching it until this season. What is the story about Marigold? They briefly mentioned something this last episode. And, how did Sybil die?

    Marigold is Edith's out-of-wedlock daughter. She's trying to keep it a secret by claiming she's her "ward." Sybil died in childbirth.

    If you have Netflix there are a lot of quality shows, especially British shows. I love Foyle's War, George Gently, Last Tango in Halifax to name a few. I wish American TV would offer something decent but haven't been able to find much other than some Hallmark series and Blue Bloods and a few others. We have gone to watching mostly Netflix anymore.

    That's an interesting theory. Not sure. Only thing I notice for sure is the writer seems to be wrapping different story lines up quickly. Like the burst ulcer and it turning out fine (like in ten minutes show time). They are definitely not stretching things out, in my opinion.

    I am just catching up, starting season 5, which I did watch hit and miss. Love the show though, and I think it is ending too soon. I do think there was a lot of potential for additional story lines. But oh well.

    You really need to watch the entire series...so much information you need to get a full grasp of this series. It's worth it.

    Definitely agree with you. I'd be lost if I hadn't been catching up with past seasons.

    And Downton Abbey won the Dramatic Cast award of the Screen Actors Guild over the weekend. I was very happy for that.

    I've been hoping that Tom & Mary would pair up since they've been working on the estate together. Even though Mary said she wouldn't "marry down," I think she'll come around ... she & Tom are already friends & getting closer all the time. I started watching when I got the boxed set of DVDs for the first 3 years one Christmas. So we watched the show & fell in love with it just before Season 4 started. I had a bunch of story lines in my head, thinking that this show could go on for years, & then they announced this is the final season. I agree that this season is going by rapidly. They appear to be matching up people & finalizing all the loose ends. Only 4 more episodes to go. Not happy about that.
