Today we're pleased to welcome author Amanda Hocking here to talk about her wishes for the fourth season of Downton Abbey. The third book in Amanda's Watersong series, Tidal, releases this week, and also might include some unlikely pairings, similar the one she's suggesting below. Thanks for being here, Amanda!
I am a huge Downton Abbey fan. I’m British (by way of my grandparents on both sides of my family, not by birthplace), so I think that I finally understand the way some Italian Americans feel about The Sopranos.
Not only is the show brilliantly written, exquisitely designed and costumed, but it has Maggie Smith. Really, everything else could be terrible, and Dowager Countess of Grantham’s wit could still carry the whole thing. Fortunately, though, the show is amazing and insanely addictive. Who knew the goings on of the household staff in a turn-of-the-century manor could be so exciting?
But onto the heart of the matter—I am totally shipping Mary Crawley and Tom Branson for the next season of Downton Abbey.
Before Season 3 of Downton started, I was looking up a few things about the show, and I accidentally made a grisly discovery. Namely that two beloved characters weren’t going to survive onto the next season (though, no SPOILERS can actually prepare you for the abrupt devastation of either of their deaths, or the onslaught of tears).
