5 Great Moments from Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey will close its doors tonight, as the last episode airs on telly tonight. But don’t forget the Christmas special. So tonight, is the penultimate episode. This season has been ‘meh’ but I promise NO spoilers for those of you who have not seen the latest season. What I WILL do, is reminisce about the  5 great moments in which you and I have watched ‘together.’ If you don’t watch Downton Abbey, well then, I will not judge you. Much.  So, let’s do this.

1.The death of Turkish diplomat Kemal Pamuk while he is trying to seduce Lady Mary, and the removal of the body from the bedroom. (Series 1, Ep 3, October 2010)
This event was based on true events. But in real life, the character was not Turkish. Massive relief.

2. The jilting of Edith at the altar by the much older Sir Anthony Strallan. (Series 3, Ep 3, September 2012)
This was shocking-right? Didn’t you just want to hug poor Edith? I know I did.

3. The death in childbirth of Lady Sybil played by Jessica Brown Findlay. (Series 3, Ep 5, October 2012).
Remember when Lady Sybil died? I cried for days. I nearly had to call in sick. It was that bad.

4. The moment Mrs Hughes gave scheming maid Edna her marching orders. Edna had tried to trick Branson into marriage by lying about a pregnancy. (Series 4, Ep 4, October 2013)
Remember this? I was all: ‘oh no she didn’t. What is Edna playing at? But it ended well, thank goodness.

5. The romance between Lady Mary and Matthew. (2010 to 2012)
This was the best romance ever since Luke and Laura from General Hospital. And when Matthew died I nearly lost it big time. But I did manage to go to work the next day.

A lot of my favourite moments involved Mary and Matthew, such as their first kiss in the dining room as they ate sandwiches

Of course there are more great moments from Downton Abbey, these just happen to be my favourites. What are yours?

Cheers Y’all
