Readers, this is it—the SERIES FINALE of Downton Abbey (sob sob sob). Except, luckily for us, our time with the Crawley household isn't really over, as we still have the annual Christmas Special to look forward to on December 25, 2015, in the UK. Until then, we hope you take comfort in Naz's thoughts on the almost-end of our beloved show.
Note for U.S. Viewers: Downton Abbey returns to PBS for Season 6 on January 3, 2016. We'll be repromoting Naz's recaps then, so feel free to wait to read them until that time to remain unspoiled.
Note: This post contains SPOILERS for all aired episodes of Downton Abbey, including last night's series finale, Series 6, Episode 8. Enjoy!
This week’s episode was, on many levels, infuriating. A lot of plotlines were resolved, although in all honesty, some were pretty contrived, at least in my opinion. I’m not going to beat about the bush, however, and will just dive right in. I’m going to have to do things a bit out of order, and maybe talk about the more minor plots first before I get to the meat of it.
